If you want 1.2 ah over 2.5 hours, then discharge is 480ma.

If you want to stick with a 500ma discharge, then that is 2.4 hours or 2 hour 24 minutes.

6 minutes different isn't huge, but for batteries this small, that represents around 5% of the total capacity at the 2.5 hour rate or about 4% of the 2.4 hour rate.
