Yep, the 5Ah battery will last roughly twice as long as the 2.5Ah battery.  It will also weigh more, so it could potentially affect the ergonomics of lighter tools... some seem to not notice or mind, others do.  Personal preference.

Another thing to note, though the 5 lasts twice as long as the 2.5, having TWO 2.5Ah batteries will allow one to charge while the other is in use.  This means nearly uninterrupted tool use for extra long jobs.  The 5Ah will last twice as long, but if it's your only battery it will need to recharge once depleted, and you'll get a break whether you want it or not. :-)
