Specialist NiMH Battery Suppliers

Custom Nickel Metal Hydride Battery Manufacturers and Suppliers

If you require a Specialist NiMH Battery Supplier, PMBL have many combined years of experience in designing and developing custom designed and manufactured NiMH batteries for a wide range of industrial and commercial products and mobile electronic applications. These specialist NiMH batteries are designed for many top end applications, typically: Consumer Electronics that require re-chargeable batteries (such as Digital Cameras), Automotive and Vehicle Battery Power Units and back-up, redundant power units for significant scale applications within the Telecomms and Rail Infrastructure Industries.

Why choose a Specialist NiMH Battery Supplier?

Background of NiMH Battery Technology: Development commenced in NiMH Battery Technology in the 1970's but slowed in it's early stages due to the instability of some of it's central hydride components. Later, with the subsequent advance of newer, more stable, Hydride alloys in the 1980's, the necessary level of suitability meant that NiMH cell development has continued to grow, giving the improvements that Bespoke NiMH Batteries offer to the provision of mobile energy today.

The Latest in Specialist NiMH Battery Design: The latest NiMH battery offers up to 40 percent higher energy density compared to Ni-Cd. There is potential for yet higher capacities, but not without some negative side effects. As a result the NiMH Battery has been replacing the Ni-Cd in markets such as wireless communications and mobile computing and is more environmentally friendly, especially when considering disposal as it contains only mild toxins.

Advantages of Specialist 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 often. 
  • 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 starts to deteriorate after 200 to 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 percent higher self-discharge compared 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.
