Nickel Cadmium Battery Terminology

nickel cadmium battery

A nickel cadmium battery, often called a “Nickel Cadmium Battery” is made with a combination of cadmium and nickel combined. A nickel cadmium battery recharges when placed into an alkaline or neutral state, and when charging, recharging will occur when the battery is placed into an acid or alkaline state. Recharging a Nickel Cadmium Battery is a great way to extend the life of your NiCad batteries. A Nickel Cadmium Battery, when first purchased should be recharged under the company’s instructions. Recharging a Nickel Cadmium Battery can be done internally, but this can lead to some severe damage to your battery. The best way to recharge a Nickel Cadmium Battery is by using a trickle charger that comes equipped with an on/off switch.

How to choose Nickel Cadmium Battery Terminology

In most of these NiCad battery pv systems, the charging system creates a discharge current that flows through a NiCad battery cell. The discharge current created by these systems are higher than the recommended RCD values for NiCad batteries. The reason being that the voltage produced by these NiCad battery pv systems is so high that they require at least 4.5v to operate. The NiCad battery pv systems will also require a regulated current in order to work properly. It’s important to remember to read the specs & user guide before purchasing a NiCad battery system.

Once your NiCad battery system has been charged to the manufacturer’s recommended RCD value, it’s important to remember to keep your battery charged and ready to go as long as possible. A fully charged NiCad battery will maintain its charge for an indefinite amount of time. It’s best to keep your battery charged for an entire year. If your nickel cadmium battery should ever develop a partial discharge, do not attempt to charge it again until the battery has been completely recharged to full capacity.
