    Battery Life Duration for Specified Voltage Drop

    I have a 8 AA batteries (12V total) that is powering a light that draws .0517A. The light no longer outputs enough light when the battery voltage drops to 8Vdc. Typically I'd calculate battery life via: 2.5Ah * 8 = 20AH. Then: 20AH/.0517A = 386 hours. Does this equation change if I want to...
