Information and Product Offerings for Wholesale AAA NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) Rechargeable Batteries
Nickel Cadmium batteries, (abbreviated NiCd) are 1.2 volt rechargeable batteries, very commonly used today in many consumer electronic devices.
AAA NiCd’s are used often in solar lighting but have other applications as well such as: clocks, cordless telephones, and remotes.
AAA NiCd batteries are best suited for low-drain devices as they offer on average,1/3 the capacity of NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries. A digital camera for instance, is a HIGH drain device and would not best be powered with NiCd batteries. NiMh batteries are most appropriate for digital cameras. Solar lights by comparison, are perfect for AAA NiCd applications.
AAA NiCd’s have a lower self-discharge rate than NiMh chemistry which is good, but on the down-side, they do experience “memory effect”. Memory effect means“reduced total battery capacity when a battery is charged before it has been fully discharged”. Recharging before empty, causes the battery to“remember” its’ now lower capacity limit so when charging your AAA NiCd’s, it’s best to wait until the batteries have been completely drained of power before re-charging. In this way, you will not reduce the overall power limit of the battery, protecting your investment, as well as the performance of the batteries.
