Went to grab a cordless battery to recharge and it was tacky and possible leaky battery inside.
My query is say unit is 12v 2ah and i see a battery that says 12v 4ah could that work and charge from a previous lower rated one?
12v is 12v, the mah or ah is the capacity, eg a 4ah will hold twice as much as a 2ah.
Not sure what the rest of your question means, "charge from a previous lower rated one"
Do you mean will it power the device?
Or can you charge it with the same charger
