New AAA NiMH usually have an internal resistance <100mO. When mine hit about 350-400, I use them for my controller.

To better answer your question, and probably tell you something you already know, but mAh = how long they will last, and voltage will give you torque and top end. Internal resistance has to do with how efficiently they can dump out their power. To the best of my knowledge. MAh can also indicate how "hot" a battery will be. 750mah cells are often very fast up front, and have a noticeable fade over their span, where 900-1000 mah cells don't seem as punchy at the start, but maintain a more even level of output, and usually for a longer span.
