The current stock of NiMH solar light batteries consists of AA NiMH 600 mAh 1.2 Volt rechargeables.  Why are NiMH so popular?  It’s like this:

1.  No memory effect.  That means that they will charge to their rated capacity for the duration of their life cycle (about 2 years) in full sunlight.  NiCd batteries will develop a memory of charging to lower capacities during cloudy days  (say, it’s sunny for the first couple of hours then a storm moves in, thus only getting enough charge for part of the evening).  Then, on the next sunny day, the battery will have a lower capacity (ceiling) to which it will charge.  Thus, a memory of only being able to charge to 80% (for example) of its intended capacity.

2.  No Cadmium!  Cadmium is considered a toxic element and needs to be disposed of properly via recycling services.  Many stores (Target, Staples, Best Buy, etc.) often offer receptacles at their stores where they accept batteries for disposal/recycling.  This is the sure way to divert the Cadmium batteries from landfills.  NiMH rechargeable batteries can discarded in the trash, but it is of course best to recycle them as with their Cadmium counterparts.  Why use Cadmium batteries?  They are cheaper than Metal Hydrides and are more readily available at many online stores…. until now!

3.  NiMH can replace NiCd batteries for solar garden lights.  Just be sure that if your light uses 2 or more batteries, then use 2 or more NiMH rechargeable batteries to get your lights energized.

4.  Metal Hydrides are typically more expensive than Cadmium batteries, but not at Your Solar Link.  They are the same price!  So, you will be getting a superior battery at the same exact price, no strings attached.

These batteries go fast, but Your Solar Link is constantly replenishing their stock with NiMH rechargeable batteries and will be adding various mAh ratings soon.  If they are sold out, just send them a quick message that you would like to get on the list to expedite processing for the next shipment.

Cheers from Your Solar Link!

Solar on!
