Full Answer

While a 9-volt battery should last one hour if supplying 400 to 500 milliamperes (mAh), other factors, such as heat produced and time elapsed, may contribute to different results. Milliampere-hour rates are specified given a current rate or a given time at which batteries have been tested. Assume eight hours if no time is specified.
