I should know more about batteries but I wonder if there is some sort of 
phenomena that limits the current output--what I mean is, maybe the 
peak current output is 2400 mAh, but maybe it can do that (or some 
fraction of that on sort of a decreasing curve) for more than 1 hour?

Of course, the counterexample to that would be a dead short on the 
battery, which I'm quite certain will draw more than 2400 mAh.  But 
even then, after a brief dead short followed by a rest, won't the 
battery recover and be able to deliver some more power (assuming the 
battery is not destroyed by the dead short).

I should do some googling, but I can't commit to having the time, atm.
