Nickel Metal Hydride

Nickel Metal Hydride’s chemical reactions are similar to Ni-Cad technology, but Ni-MH batteries typically offer two to three times the capacity of Ni-CD for any given size. This is similar to the capacity offered by Lithium based batteries.

Another clear advantage on Ni-MH is that they do not contain any toxic metals, which are due to be phased out in just a few years and will prevent the older Ni-Cad batteries from being used in new products in just a few years.Ni-MH batteries and battery packs made up of standard sizes (AA, AAA etc) are likely to remain popular for many years to come as they have high levels of safety and are very cost effective.
