Nickle metal hydride batteries also known as NiMH batteries are a type of rechargeable battery used every day in various household and industrial items. NiMH batteries have two to three times more capacity than a nickel-cadmium cell (NiCd) battery.
These batteries if stored in a cool, dry place can last for between 500 to 1000 charges or 2 to 3 years. The more you charge NiMH, the longer they last.
Another name for this battery type is a secondary cell.
