nickel-metal hydride cell
- A cell similar to a nickel cadmium cell, except that the anode is a hydrogen-absorbing alloy. The nominal voltage of such a cell is also approximately 1.2V, it provides greater energy density than nickel-cadmium cells, enhanced performance, no memory effect, and eliminates concerns over cadmium toxicity. Its abbreviations are NiMH cell. Also called nickel-metal hydride battery (2).
