NiCad Batteries. Storage, Safety, and Cycle life

NiCad Batteries. Storage, Safety, and Cycle life

Page view

Being one of the best options for using in the products that require their portable power delivery to be powerful enough and at the lower temperature at the same time. These batteries are widely used for power tools and toys as cars. Being rechargeable they provide to be an excellent source for providing power and reliability of providing power again and again.

Here we will discuss some facts about the storage and life of these batteries.

Can a NiCad battery be stored?

This is a very common question that many people come up with. This is because their portable power requirements require them to have a lot of batteries charged and stored at the same time. Other than this kind of person, some ask about storing these batteries because they have to carry them around and safety is one of their major concerns.

These are some factors that you will need to consider while storing a NiCad battery.

Temperature conditions.

When you are storing your NiCad batteries, it is very important to notice the storing temperature. The optimum temperature for storing the NiCad battery is between -20 degrees Celsius and 45 degrees Celsius. When the batteries are stored at their optimum temperature, they stay safe for a longer time.

Charging status.

Whenever you want to or have to store your NiCad batteries, one thing that you must make sure is that you check the charging status of your battery. It is not a good practice to keep the charged batteries in storage places because they can be dangerous in one way or another.

The best way to store a battery is to keep its charging between 0% and 40% so the battery will not be significantly dangerous.

Connection conditions.

Storing a battery is never a safe thing unless you take proper precautionary measures. This is because if the ends of the battery come in contact with any metallic surface, they can make a circuit and they can also create sparking. Here are some things that you can do for storing your battery.

?Taping the ends of the battery.

?Keeping the batteries in a plastic container.

?Getting a professional battery storage bag.

All of these methods depend on your need of storing the battery.

Atmospheric conditions.

The last thing that you must consider is that the place where you are storing the battery must not be damp or wet. IT must also not be cold or very hot. The best way for storing the NiCad battery is to keep it in a cool and dry place.

Are NiCad Batteries Dangerous?

Just like most of the batteries, these batteries are also somewhat dangerous to us. These batteries do not seem to be very dangerous because they do not have any acid in them like other types of batteries, but the chemicals present in them can be very dangerous for us.

The potassium hydroxide present in the NiCad batteries is very dangerous if the batteries are raptured. Here we will discuss some dangerous conditions of the NiCad batteries for us.

Corrosive to skin.

If the NiCad battery is punctured or ruptured, the potassium hydroxide present in the battery can come out of it. If it comes with a contact without skin, it can be very corrosive for the skin because it can leave burn marks on the skin. On contact, you must rinse it immediately with water, vinegar, or a boric acid solution.

Permanent damage in the eye.

The potassium hydroxide present in the NiCad batteries is also very dangerous for the eyes, it comes in contact with the eye, it can cause permanent damage to the eyes so you must try to be as safe as possible. ON accidental contact, rinse the eye with water as soon as possible, and consult a doctor.

Sparking and fire.

One last hazard of having NiCad batteries is that they can be the cause of a fire. This is because of their high-power delivery options. If they are kept in a circuit and that circuit comes in contact with a metallic surface, this can cause sparking and that sparking can ultimately be a cause of fire.

How long do NiCad batteries last?

The life of the NiCad batteries is also a major concern for most people. This is because many of the users have been using their batteries for years now and they are still good to provide enough power. This property of NiCad batteries makes them exceptional for long-term usage for portable power delivery.

On average a good quality made NiCad battery that we used with good care can last for up to 15 to 20 years, but this mostly depends on some things. Here we have discussed those.

Depending on the way you use them.

The way of using a battery affects its life the most. This is because every battery is made with a certain natural element in it and that element has its lifetime. This lifetime is also known as a term known as the half-life of the atoms of that element. When the batteries are used in rough conditions, the element starts to decay faster that causes the battery to lose its life faster.

Depending on the temperature that they are used in.

Temperature is another factor affecting the life of a battery. For a battery, you must use it only in the range of its optimal temperature. If you use the battery in extraordinary hot or cold temperatures, it will not only affect the life of the battery, but it will also cause problems for the power delivery of the battery.

These were some things that can be the deciding factor of how long your NiCad batteries will last for.

Conclusion.

NiCad batteries are so widely used that people use them to come up with different questions related to the safety and life of the batteries. Here we have discussed some major security factors about this battery and we also told you how you can make your battery last longer by taking care of some specific things.
