One of the most commonly used batteries, NiMH and NiCd batteries power electrical devices such as TV remotes and calculators.

NIHM & NICD Batteries


Nickel Metal-Hydride (NiMH) and Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) are both nickel-based batteries used in portable electronics, equipment, electric vehicles and toys. NiCd and NiMH batteries require different charging and discharging procedures, so for this reason, can not be handled in the same way.

Power Technology recommends Tailor batteries, one of the world’s leading brands of reliable, durable batteries.

NiMH batteries

  • Well suited for applications that call for a long duration, but not a high amp load
  • High energy density and no memory effect
  • Do not perform well in applications with a high discharge rate
  • Provide longer run times than similar-sized NiCd batteries if handled correctly
  • A durable solution for applications requiring 1.2V rechargeable cells.
  • Ideal for portable electronics, equipment, electric vehicles and toys

NiCd batteries

  • Able to handle a high rate of charges and discharges (typically over 1.5-2A)
  • Demonstrate the widest temperature range tolerance for rechargeable technology
  • Terminal voltage of 1.2V
  • Lower energy density per unit volume than NiMH
  • Provides maximum available power into near short circuit loads
  • Ideal for portable electronics, equipment, electric vehicles and toys
  • Available in AA, C, D
