Spend less and power your electronic devices longer by switching to NiMH batteries. A single rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery can replace hundreds of disposable alkaline batteries. Compared to NiCd batteries, NiMH cells have higher capacities and are non-toxic. They also last longer than rechargeable alkaline batteries. Staples® offers a wide selection NiMH cells from different battery manufacturers.

Choose Between Standard and LSD NiMH Batteries
NiMH cells are especially ideal for frequently used, high-drain devices like digital cameras, toys, and portable media players. They supply a steady voltage of 1.2 volts and can last up to 500 recharging cycles or more. To keep them in peak condition, make sure to recharge them before they discharge below 50 percent of their original capacities. NiMH rechargeable batteries can also self-discharge when left unused. A regular NiMH cell loses 1 percent of its charge every day and goes completely flat in about 3 months. For this reason, you should recharge the ones you have in storage every 1 or 2 months.

LSD or low self-discharge NiMH cells are identical to standard ones but lose their charges slower. Also referred to as hybrid and precharged NiMH, these only lose 10 to 20 percent of their capacities every 6 months. While you need to charge regular NiMH cells before use, these are ready for use out of the box. You only need to recharge the LSD NiMH cells you have in storage every 6 to 9 months to keep them in peak condition.

Other Factors to Consider When Comparing Different NiMH Batteries
These batteries come in different sizes. The most common ones are AA, AAA, C, and D cells. The devices you have will determine the right ones to pick. Besides physical dimension, each type has a different energy capacity. Storage capacity also varies between regular and LSD models for a given size. For example, you can find standard NiMH AA batteries with energy capacities between 1,200 and 2,700mAh but LSD varieties have a maximum capacity of 2,500mAh. LSD NiMH AAA cells also have lower capacities than standard ones. This is due to the separators built into LSD batteries to slow down electrical discharge. To keep the same dimension as regular NiMH cells while making room for these components, the precharged versions end up with lower charge capacities.

Do NiMH Batteries Suffer From the Memory Effect?
Modern NiMH cells do not develop memory effect. Technically, this can occur with successive partial discharges but any observed loss of capacity is reversible. Correcting it requires fully discharging and recharging the batteries for a few cycles.

Can You Charge NiMH Batteries With the Same Charger Used for NiCd Cells?
No. To avoid overcharging these batteries, only use smart battery chargers designed for NiMH cells. These usually have microprocessors that regulate charging voltage and optimize power delivery.

Can You Mix NiMH Batteries With Other Rechargeable Batteries?
You should not mix batteries of different capacities and/or chemistries. While NiMH and NiCD cells are both 1.2-volt batteries, they discharge at different rates. A nickel-zinc battery has a nominal voltage of 1.65 volts and also discharges faster than NiMH cells. Combining different types of rechargeable batteries can damage the power cells as well as the electronic device drawing power from them.
