Sub C NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) and NICD (Nickel Cadmium) Rechargeable Batteries with/without Tabs
Sub c cells for building drill packs and rc battery packs
If you are thinking of buying Sub C NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) or Sub C NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) rechargeable batteries, we are pleased to offer some basics about this widely used battery.
Sub C batteries are commonly used for building and rebuilding drill packs and RC (radio controlled_) battery packs, among a host of other applications as well.
Sub C batteries physically resemble what could be described as a smaller version of the Regular or Standard C size battery. They measure 23 mm in diameter, by 43 mm in length.
They’re available in both NiMH chemistry (Nickel Metal Hydride) and NiCD (Nickel Cadmium) chemistry, both of which are rechargeable.
Many people use Sub C’s in their cordless power tools (drills etc...) and common manufacturers of these drills are Dewalt, Ryobi, Makita, and Bosch.
The Sub C cells in cordless drills are more often than not, the NICD kind and not NiMH and they come with built-in chargers that are appropriate for NICD chemistry recharging. NiMH Sub C’s however, would be the choice for use in RC toys and electric guns, and electric vehicles like cars and bicycles as a few of examples. Still other uses for Sub C NiMH batteries include: battery packs such as Airsoft, remote control battery packs, transmitter battery packs and many many other battery pack assembly jobs.
|NiMH Sub C batteries are equally used in industry as part of their own internal operations, not just inside the products they manufacture. NiMH Sub Cs because of their smaller size, have applications all their own. There are battery chargers will charge both NiMH and NiCd batteries in all sorts of sizes: AA, AAA, C, Sub C, D, and 9 Volt. Sub C NiMH rechargeable batteries are high in capacity and therefore will run, say, a drill (on battery power) for a long period of time. When we say capacity, we mean milliampere hours. This is abbreviated as mAh, and the higher the rating of the mAh, (displayed numerically), the longer the run time that 1 full single charge will give you. 1 full single charge = equals one charge cycle. The length of time it takes one full charge to become depleted of power. Sub C NiMH batteries offer up to 1000 charge cycles. Currently, the standard capacity for Sub C NiMH rechargeable batteries is between 4200 mAh and 4500 mAh (milliampere hours) and the standard rate of capacity on a Sub C NiCd battery is between 2100 mAh and 2200 mAh. The higher the mAh rating, the longer the run-time the battery will provide. Sub C NiMH batteries are available with tabs on them, or without tabs on them. What’s a tab? It’s what sticks out on either end for the purpose of soldering to another cell as is required in the building of battery packs. For many, it’s a handy convenience to have these tabs directly on the batteries already and for the do-it-yourself-er who wishes to weld the tabs on themself,(simply done by people who are familiar with the use of a spot-welder) getting them without tabs and welding them on by themself, is an option as well. Another significant difference between NiMH and NiCD technology is what is referred to as memory effect. Many people have heard the term before but aren’t quite clear on it’s meaning. We’d like to explain it for you. It will be a valuable piece of battery information to know, when making purchasing decisions. Memory Effect is actually a resulting status that can happen to a battery that has been charged at the wrong time. We know that needs a few more words, so here goes: Memory effect is what happens to a battery that is recharged before it was fully dead to begin with. If you charge certain types of batteries which can sustain this type of effect, (NICD – Nickel Cadmium in particular), before they have become fully drained of power, only the empty portion of the battery will be replenished and it is THAT NEW LEVEL of power that will become the batteries new TOTAL power capability. In NIMH chemistry, this effect does not exist. The chemistry of NICKEL METAL HYDRIDE is immune from this. That’s benefit makes the battery cost a little more than it’s NICD counterpart, but when you consider that you can recharge them worry-free that you might be lessening their memory, it’s a price well worth investing in.|
Wholesale Batteries (Sub C NIMH and all other chemistries, sizes and capacities)
Many organizations, institutions, and even individual consumers alike, prefer to purchase their batteries in bulk packaging and in large quantity. They have enough experience to know that there are a few battery sizes they use over and over again. They might have children and use their batteries in their children’s toys. They might be avid photographers and need good camera batteries in ready supply. And for a host of other reasons, they require a surplus to keep in the workshop at their fingertips at any time. Resellers (merchants) are another type of customer that needs to buy batteries in volume. However, typically they need their inventory to be blister carded, ready for retail display. Buying in wholesale quantities is the way to go to get wholesale pricing.
There is not a battery we stock that we don’t have in large quantity.
