Where physical dimensions allow it, you can upgrade to a higher Amperage battery. 

For example, a device using a 12V 7.2Ah can use a 12V 9Ah battery as a replacement to provide longer run time. The voltage and the dimensons of the battery must be the same, but the Ah does not have to be the same. In our example, a 12V 7.2Ah can be replaced by a 12V 9Ah for longer run time, but the battery must be 12V.
