NBS designs and manufactures smart custom NiMH battery packs (Nickel Metal Hydride) and chargers for a variety of applications. Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries are an excellent low cost / short lead time option when considering a new battery design. These cells are a good choice for portable handheld equipment, and an acceptable alternative to lithium batteries. NiMH is not considered a hazardous material, and is not subject to the UN/ST38.3 regulatory safety transportation testing requirements that govern lithium batteries. With no safety testing or additional safety circuitry required, NiMH battery projects typically involve lower cost and less time to market than Lithium-based cells.
