Although lithium ion batteries are more expensive than more-common nickel metal hydride
cells, they offer triple the run time of the average personal trimmer and twice the power, or torque, so that the trimmer cuts hair cleanly rather than snagging or pulling it.
Duracell is bringing two Nickel Metal Hydride
(NiMH) battery charges to the market this fall.
After 15,000 cycles the cells still retained over 85% of their original charge capacity, a significant improvement over conventional, commercially available rechargeable battery technologies such as lithium ion, nickel metal hydride
and nickel cadmium.
As part of the contract, Enova will fully design and integrate its Post-Transmission 80 kW Hybrid Drive System with nickel metal hydride
batteries, providing a hybrid solution not only for new vehicles but also offering the ability to retrofit existing vehicles.
(ECD Ovonics), a company with a portfolio of alternative energy solutions that includes nickel metal hydride
batteries, hydride storage materials and fuel cell technology, recently announced its financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, reporting a quarterly net loss of $5.6 million, or 17 cents per share, compared to a net loss of $11.3 million, or 39 cents per share, for the same period last year.
Features include a large work area, automatic electronic locking system, and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) or Nickel Metal Hydride
(NIMH) power solutions with a battery run time of up to 15 hours.
(TSE: 6764; NASDAQ: SANYY), the world leader in rechargeable batteries, announced a new next-generation nickel metal hydride
battery 'eneloop' to be sold from November 14, 2005.
It reportedly provides over 15 hours of use from its built-in ChargePAK battery, a rechargeable battery with six high performance nickel metal hydride
While alkaline batteries will continue to account for the bulk of sales, such other technologies as lithium ion, lithium polymer and nickel metal hydride
will grow the fastest, the report says.
Keep lead acid batteries away from nickel cadmium or nickel metal hydride
It is electrically powered by two rechargeable 48- to 60-cell nickel metal hydride
The Revolution power train integrates a 35-kilowatt (47 horsepower) ambient-pressure fuel cell, 35-kilowatt nickel metal hydride
buffer batteries, and four electric motors connected to the wheels with single-stage reduction gears.
