The Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) is the best battery when performing in extreme hot and cold temperatures. Not only is it versatile in performance, but it also has a great shelf life. What this means is that regardless of how long it is not in use, it will continue to perform at a high-quality level. In addition, this battery is extremely forgiving when abused. If properly maintained, the Nickel Cadmium battery provides over 1,000 charge and discharge cycles.
For many years, NiCd was the preferred battery choice when it came to two-way radios, emergency equipment, etc. However, in the late 1980s, the ultra-high capacity of NiCd established a turning point for the standard NiCd. Packed with more active material into the cell achieved this. The standard NiCd remains one of the most rugged and forgiving batteries. The NiCd battery needs proper care to attain its longevity benefits.
