Can I upgrade my solar landscaping light batteries?

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but it's the closest I can find. I have a bunch of solar landscaping lights that use rechargeable AA batteries. A couple have worn out so I need to replace them. They currently have 1.2v Ni-Ma 1200 mAh batteries in them. Would the lights stay on longer with a higher mAh battery? That's my one complaint about them. They tend to fade and shut off earlier than I'd like.

I found these on Amazon with more than double the mAh.

in theory they should last a little longer with a larger battery but in my experience they end up about the same so think it comes down to how much of a charge they get put back into them and often there not fully charged so may not make any difference.

I had the same thought. They're in the backyard and get a lot of shade, so I don't think they're getting a full charge as it is. On the other hand, they're only a few dollars more than 1200 mAh batteries, so I guess it can't hurt to try.
