This chemistry will be replaced with nickel-metalhydride; however, NiCad
batteries still hold a major share for power tools, two-way radios and medical devices.
Top tip: If you're shopping for a cordless power tool, remember that lithium-ion batteries not only deliver increased performance, but also have a longer run time than NiCad
- and they're a lot lighter too.
Available as a 110-volt AC tool or as a cordless 24-volt DC unit with two rechargeable NiCad
The Wachusett Recycled Resource Center, Boyden Road, Holden, accepts button, rechargeable NiCad
, small sealed lead acid and alkaline batteries for recycling.
Sealed lead-acid batteries can deliver 30 to 50 watt-hours per kilogram, NiCad
can deliver 45 to 80, NiMH can deliver 60 to 120, and li-ion can reach as high as 180, according to a site run by Isidor Buchmann, founder and CEO of Cadex Electronics, a maker of battery test equipment and chargers in Vancouver, BC.
The devices recharge any 100 percent discharged flooded or sealed lead-acid batteries and NiCad
batteries within eight hours.
The Pocket Pixel can run for up to two hours continuously using rechargeable NiCad
The InCharger unit has a universal ac input and is configured for gel, flooded lead acid, AGM or NiCAD
batteries with 12 or 24 Vdc selectable output, said the company.
The heavy-duty 36V hammerdrill/drill/driver, Model DC901KL, was engineered with a 36V NANO phosphate Lithium ion battery that provides two times more recharges than traditional NiCad
batteries, DeWalt says.
4 volt NiCad
battery, it produces around 350 fps at a cyclic rate averaging 750 rpm on full auto.
, lead acid and batteries containing mercury are all classified as hazardous waste - as are unsorted mixed loads.
Market research firm, Research and Markets, Dublin, Ireland, has released a new forecast for thin film NiCad
batteries extending beyond 2011.
