In the last week, we described you all the details of lithium battery C-rating. Today, we would discuss the Nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery C-rating. Compare with normal Ni-MH batteries, the high-discharge rate Ni-MH battery is usually used for RC model and power tools, but how high can it be?

Ni-MH battery

The Nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery is an improvement from nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery as it replaces cadmium with a metal that can absorb hydrogen.  Grepow Battery Monday - Ni-MH battery Nickel-metal Hydride batteries can provide a higher capacity, have less obvious memory effects, and are more environmentally friendly.

High-discharge rate Ni-MH battery

However, Nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries are generally not suitable for high-rate charging and discharging.  They are widely used in model toys and electric tools and are safer to use than lithium batteries.  [caption id="attachment_3191" align="aligncenter" width="819"]Grepow Battery Monday - Advantages of Ni-MH battery Advantages of Ni-MH battery[/caption] Normally, the Nickel Metal Hydride battery could be discharged with a maximum 3C rate, but Grepow's batteries can achieve the maximum rate of 15C. There are three different series of Grepow Nickel Metal Hydride batteries that have a high discharge rate:  Our "LP" series, which stands for low power. This means the medium discharge rate is within a 5C rating.  Then we have the "HP" series, which stands for high power. This means that it has a discharge rating of 10C. And the "UP" series, this stands for Ultra-high Power.
