Converting large library to ePub

I use Calibre and I have a pretty large MOBI library that I plan to convert to ePub. I've noticed that ePub is a more compact format and since I use only Kindles, I know they work well on it. Is their an advantage to keeping the books in MOBI format also or am I ok with converting to all ePub formats.

Kindle doesn't support ePub, except the Fire with 3rd party apps. I wouldn't go through the trouble of converting until you have a need for ePubs.
