Brake pads for Canti brakes

Ok I've now got my new tourer and I'm loving it but I'm not so sure about the Cantilever brakes. On my hybrid I swapped out the stock pads and replaced them with cartridge pads which I felt made the brakes much more powerful so I'm thinking about doing the same with these brakes.

What I'm wondering is: -
  • Are the cantilever (Tektro Onyx) pads the same as v-brake pads? (they look like they are to me)
  • Is it likely to make a difference, or are canti brakes just a lot less powerful than v-brakes?
