Bespoke NIMH Battery Cells

Bespoke NiMH Battery Cells, are typically used in a wide range of electronic applications that are high-end and require powerful rechargeable batteries. PMBL, with many years of experience have designed, developed and manufactured bespoke NiMH battery cells for a diverse variety of mobile electronic applications and commercial products. NiMH batteries can be found in; Consumer Electronics that require re-chargeable batteries (such as Digital Cameras); Automotive and Vehicle Battery Power Units (such as cars, vans and tractors); and redundant backup and emergency power units for large scale applications within the Telecommunications and Rail Network Industries.

Timeline of NiMH Battery Cell Development: In the 1970s, NiMH Battery cells came into existence, however, its early years of development experienced slow progress. Its early, slow stages of development is attributed to the instability of NiMH's core chemical component - Hydride. Over the next decade with the subsequent advancement of new, and more stable, Hydride alloys, the required levels of stability necessary for development were met. In response to the advancements made in the 1980s, NiMH battery cells accelerated in their development and growth - delivering the excellent performance Bespoke NiMH battery cells provide today. 

The Latest in NiMH Battery Cell Design: Today, the modern NiMH battery cell offers up to 40 % higher energy density in comparison to Ni-Cd equivalent battery packs. Ni-Cd has been replaced by NiMH in a variety of markets such as, wireless communications and mobile computing. Also, NiMH is more environmentally friendly, especially in relation to their disposal as it contains only mild toxins. Although, NiMH cells tend to have a lower cycle life they are ideally suited for many hand-held and portable applications.

Advantages of Bespoke NiMH Batteries:

  • 30 - 40 % higher capacity over a standard Ni-Cd. 
  • NiMH Batteries have a potential for yet higher energy densities. 
  • Less prone to memory than the Ni-Cd. 
  • Periodic exercise cycles are required less frequently. 
  • Simple storage and transportation - transportation conditions are not subject to regulatory control.
  • Environmentally friendly - contains only mild toxins; profitable for recycling.
 

Dis-Advantages of NiMH Battery Packs:

  • Limited service life - The performance begins to deteriorate after 200 - 300 cycles. 
  •  Limited discharge current - Repeated discharges with high load currents reduces the battery’s cycle life. 
  • Longer Charge Period - Controlled Trickle Charge needed. 
  • High self-discharge - 50 % higher self-discharge comparative to the Ni-Cd. 
  • New chemical additives improve the self-discharge but at the expense of lower energy density. 
  • High Temperature Performance degradation - Performance degrades if stored at elevated temperatures, NiMH Battery Packs should be stored in a cool place and at a state-of-charge of about 40 % high maintenance - battery requires regular full discharge to prevent crystalline formation. 
  • Price - About 20 % more expensive than Ni-Cd.
