Re: Does this not simply mean..

I would expect that in sunlight, it should do pretty well even when the battery is lower.

Maybe they did just make the battery a little too weak for the system... but I'm not sure that adding more mAH to the battery would fix this. That's a measure of total energy capacity. Maybe what it needs is higher peak current -- that is to say, lower internal resistance. To make an analogy with an automotive battery, it probably wants more "cold-cranking amps". Like an Optima Red-Top, whereas one with added mAH would correspond to an Optima Yellow-Top. Of course, improvements in one area might bring along improvements in the other, you never know 'til you try.
