Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

Nickel metal hydride batteries are rechargeable and have higher energy density than nickel-cadmium and lead-acid batteries. They provide three times the capacity of nickel-cadmium cell batteries and are recyclable. NiMH batteries have steadily increased in popularity since the late 1980s. Continual increases in performance have made this chemistry an excellent choice for small, lightweight, portable, and handheld applications.

NiMH Batteries Have a High Capacity and Provide a Long-Lasting Charge

Rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery packs offer numerous advantages over batteries of other chemistries. They have 30-40% more capacity than same-sized NiCd cells and are less prone to “memory effect” than NiCd, providing a longer-lasting charge.

Rechargeable NiMH Battery Specifications:

• Cell voltage: 1.2V (nominal)
• Energy by weight: 60–120 Wh/kg
• Cycle life: up to 500+ cycles
• Self-discharge rate: 30% per month
• Charge temperature range: 0°C to 45°C
• Operational temperature range: -20°C to 60°C
• Sizes: various button and round cells
Nickel metal hydride batteries outperform alkaline and other primary batteries in high-drain and high current applications, making them a suitable replacement in many devices. Their voltage remains constant until the battery is almost completely discharged, and they have a wide operating temperature range. Though the initial cost for NiMH batteries is higher, the convenience and cycle life of a rechargeable battery can be well worth the additional expense.
