Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

custom nimh designs for oem applications

OEM Power Cells

Nickel based batteries are a popular choice due to their low cost, durability and less complex charging requirements. Nickel based batteries also offer a much broader operating temperature range than lithium batteries making suitable for a broad range of industrial applications.

With proper system design these batteries can easily reach 1000 to 2000 cycles when limited to a maximum of 80% depth of discharge.

OEM Power CellsNickel based batteries are commonly used in applications that require fairly high discharge rates but cost is a key factor. Nickel based chemistries have fewer restrictions for transportation when compared to lithium making them popular for use inpower tools, pulse instrumentation and other electronic devices.


Protection & Management Circuits  

Lithium Ion Battery power-cells often require Protection Circuit Modules and Battery Management Systems (BMS). These features enable safer operation and stand-alone control or communication buses with connected computer systems. Many of our custom / OEM power cells are packaged with these embedded circuits to protect and extend the life of our battery products.
