Nickel-cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd)

Nickel-cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd) of BYD Energy

The Chinese BYD Energy was established in 1995. Currently, taking into account its production volumes it is amongst the world’s top manufacturers of power sources. It manufactures nickel (Ni-Cd and Ni-MH) and lithium (Li-Ion, Li-FePO4 [LFP]) technology cells. BYD Automobile focuses its operations on developing electric cars powered by LFP systems it manufactures itself in cooperation with Daimler AG. The other focus entails energy storage systems (ESS) used as energy stores for renewable energy sources (primarily solar panels).

Standard Series

The standard series delivers the benefits of Ni-Cd technology – very good price to parameters ratio, high reliability and long lifetime, very broad temperature range and relatively high capacities.

High current Series

The high current cells series is an excellent choice for receivers requiring a high operating current (up to 10C continuous drain and 15C pulse operation) and low cell impedance. These cells also deliver all the advantages of Ni-Cd technology (very good price to parameters ratio, high reliability, long lifetimes, very broad operating temperature range).

High temperature Series

The high temperature series delivers all the benefits of Ni-Cd technology – very good price to parameters ratio, high reliability and long lifetime. Additionally, the high temperature cells feature very good charge and lifetime properties (up to 4 years) at increased temperatures (+50oC) and are an excellent solution for emergency lighting and/or devices with rechargeable battery buffer operation is required. One should remember that high temperature cells cannot be charged quickly.
