So, what is the plan? Are you goign to try the 7Ah battery in parallel with the others? I think it should work. It should give you another 5-6 minutes to the run time.

Woo, good news.

Testing shoudl be pretty simple, charge em up, put them on an inverter and time how long it takes to discharge them at ~1C. A 75W bulb would do nicely.
