The most common rechargeable battery types are NiCd, NiMH, Li-ion and lead-acid. Their key characteristics are:
Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) is a mature and well-understood technology. They are used where long service life, high discharge current and extreme temperatures are required. NiCd is one of the most rugged and enduring batteries. It is the only chemistry that allows fast charging with minimal stress. Main applications are power tools, medical devices, aviation and uninterruptable power supply (UPS). Due to environmental concerns, NiCd batteries are being replaced with other types.
Nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) is replacing NiCd in many applications as it contains only mild toxic metals and provides higher specific energy. NiMH is used for medical instruments, hybrid cars and industrial applications.
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) is replacing lead and nickel-based batteries in many applications, due to safety concerns and higher energy density. However, Li-ion needs a protection circuit and it is a more expensive option. High cycling capability and low maintenance demands reduce the cost per cycle over many other types. With rapid advances being made with Lithium-Ion battery technologies, their relative performance will continue to improve over the coming years.
Lead Acid is the oldest rechargeable battery technology. Lead-acid is rugged and is economically priced, but it has a low specific energy and limited cycle count. Lead is toxic and cannot be disposed of in landfills.
- Flooded - generally have the highest water usage and must be accessible.
- Low or maintenance-free - are designed to use less water. Generally do not need water added during normal vehicle service life.
- Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA), either absorbed glass mat (AGM) or gel design, are sealed from the atmosphere by one-way valves. Adding water is not necessary.
- Calcium - is usually sealed/maintenance-free. They have advantages with improved corrosion resistance, reduced gassing, lower water usage and lower self-discharge.
