    Quick questions about battery life for a S107 Helicopter. It currently has a 3.7V 180mAh battery.
    If I switch out the battery with 3.7V 360mAh:
    A: would it still work without harming the circuits?
    B: if it works, would it last roughy twice as long?
    C: would it then take twice as long to charge as it did with the 180mAh battery?

    Thanks for your help!

    Pretty much yes to all except for 'C' which will depend on your charger..

    I was hoping that was the case for questions A and B. As C, I'll just do a number of tests charging it longer and longer until I get something close to the battery life I'm expecting and just leave it at that for new standard charge time. Thanks for your input!

    not sure about specs. It just uses a USB cable that plugs directly into the side of the helicopter which glows when it's done charging. It can be plugged into a computer or a USB wall outlet adapter.
