That is interesting Ray, as I wrote above, I get maybe half an hour out of a 7.2ah, though that is running my mount PC as well (Which only runs a couple of watts typically) If I had my guess I would say it was pulling about 4A at the time which going by the data sheet should be about 60 minutes run time (Half an hour is a guess for how long it ran things, I didn't time it as my "test" was not deliberate) but it would have been somewhat derated for temperature and may not have been at 100% charge to begin with, and I can't recall how old the battery is.

In my case I only use the battery to float over any power interruptions so it does not bother me much, the new setup I am building uses two power supplies and two batteries so it should go a decent time on it's own.
