1500 mAh Performance?

Has anyone tried running their Charge on a 1500 mAh battery? My stock 1600mAh battery is blown 'cause it drains down to 15% in 3 hours of idle time. So I took the 1500 mAh battery out of a Samsung mobile hotspot and it's giving better performance. And since the 1500 is super cheap on Amazon, I was thinking about buying one or two. But I wanted to hear some real-world examples of other people running a smaller battery. Can I get by with only 1500? Thanks in advance.
I don't think I'd go any smaller than stock. 100mah isnt much but the stock 1600mah one doesn't go long enough in my opinion.

When I got our phones I went on eBay and bought two more stock batteries for $25 shipped to my door. Can't hardly beat that. They are Samsung OEM ones too, not cheap knockoffs.
