RS PRO AA NiMH Batteries, Standard Tagged

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.

These tagged batteries are suitable for permanent installation into equipment or assembling into battery packs

RS PRO have a great range of rechargeable batteries and chargers to suit all your requirements. These batteries are cost-effective as the energy supply is recharged and reused. They are also more environmentally friendly as other non-rechargeable batteries are thrown away and replaced once used.

Charging NiMH Batteries

Charging NiMH batteries correctly is key to their performance and lifespan. All batteries are supplied with only a residual charge and should be charged at a continuous charge rate before use.
