RS NiMH Batteries

Nickle metal hydride batteries also known as NiMH batteries are a type of rechargeable battery used every day in various household and industrial items. NiMH batteries have two to three times more capacity than a nickel-cadmium cell (NiCd) battery.
These batteries if stored in a cool, dry place can last for between 500 to 1000 charges, or 2 to 3 years. The more you charge NiMH, the longer they last.
Another name for this battery type is a secondary cell.

Features and Benefits

Rechargeable Long lifespan – the battery lifespan is expressed in charge cycles. One cycle is a complete discharge followed by a complete recharge
NiMH batteries can outperform an alkaline battery in a single charge
Advantageous for high current drain devices
Increased confidence in the devise you are using
Various battery recycle schemes available
More environmentally friendly
