The big question is: Is it a rechargeable battery?100mAh sounds awfully low=
 though=2C so I'm guessing no.Is it a toy? :P

Capacity is a measure of how much charge the battery has.=0A=
100mAh will last for 100 hours if the synth drains 1mA from it=2C 1000 hour=
s if it drains 0.1mA from it=2C and so on... (in theory)So=2C bigger is bet=
ter as it will last longer.

I'm looking to replace a memory backup battery on a synth. The original was=
 a 3.6V 100mAh battery=2C but the available mAh values for new ones are 80 =
and 150. I'm guessing that such a small difference won't matter=2C but am u=
nsure whether it's better to shoot high or low.

thanks=2C
