AA NiCD (Nickel Cadmium) Rechargeable Batteries

NiCD batteries are typically best for low-drain products because on average, they deliver roughly one third (1/3) the capacity of Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries. Today’s cameras for example, aren’t low-drain devices. They require a lot of power to operate and therefore they fall into more of a high-drain battery category and as such, are not best powered by NiCD batteries.

By contrast, solar lighting for example, are perfect applications for Nickel Cadmium Battery use – especially AA NiCD cells.

Common applications for AA NiCD batteries aside from solar lighting are: many children’s toys and remote controls.

NiCD rechargeable batteries offer hundreds of charge cycles. A charge cycle is can be described as the run-time a battery will deliver from full to empty. A battery that provides hundreds of charge cycles can serve you many years!

All batteries self discharge. This simply means that they “leak” out power (leak is our ‘layman” term), when not in use. Simply sitting on the shelf (idle), some energy from the battery seeps out. In NiCD battery chemistry, the discharge rate is significantly slower than in NIMH batteries – another interesting feature that appeals to many. Their NiCD batteries therefore, will retain much of their total charge, for longer than NiMH. Should you only wish to use your NiCD batteries once in a while, you can be more assured that they will still have power remaining in them even if you haven’t picked one up off the shelf in months and months.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to own a handy battery tester! This device can tell you in seconds, the strength of your batteries. Whether or not they should be charged (as in the case of rechargeable batteries) and whether or not they have any strength left in them at all, (as in the case of non-rechargeable batteries such as Alkaline or Lithium batteries). Note that non-rechargeable batteries are also called single-use, throw-away, and disposable.

AA NiCD batteries are available in different mAh ratings. MAh is the abbreviation for milliampere hour. It’s what describes the capacity of the battery. The capacity can be understood by thinking of capacity as the run time the battery will give you on 1 Full Charge Cycle. A battery with 1000mAh runs longer than a battery with 600mAh.

Here is somewhat of a "drawback" that NiCD batteries have. It doesn’t have to be a drawback if you understand it and treat it accordingly. Here’s what we mean. While NiCD cells are cheaper in price than NIMH, they can experience (sustain) what is known as “memory effect”. Many people have heard the term here or there but might not be quite clear on what it means. Memory effect is result. It’s the result of charging a battery that has not fully been emptied of power first. In NiMH technology, this does NOT happen but in NiCD technology, it can. NiCD batteries must be “dead” at the time of charge so as to preserve the original, total energy capacity the battery was made with. If it’s charged before it’s dead, the battery “remembers” the new level of storage capability and this new level becomes the battery’s new total power capacity.To preserve the total run time 1 full charge cycle, always charge all NiCD batteries once they are completely empty.
