But what are NiMH batteries, and why should you choose X-Met Metals to dispose of these?
What are NiMH batteries?
NiMH batteries are a specific type of recyclable battery. NiMH is an abbreviation for nickel metal hydride, and this type of battery is a popular option for a wide range of uses. The NiMH battery replaced older Ni–Cd batteries for portable consumer use, across the European Union as part of the battery directive.
What are NiMH batteries used for?
NiMH batteries have a variety of uses, including:
- Consumer electronics- from flashlights to children’s toys, the NiMH battery is one of the most popular installed in small, portable consumer electronic devices.
- Electric vehicles- all first generation electric vehicles used NiMH batteries, but now the vast majority of new models use lithium ion batteries instead, except for a small handful of hybrid vehicles.
As the technology becomes more outdated, the question about what to do with old NiMH batteries arises.
