NiCad / NiMH Battery Packs
We can duplicate any battery sample which you provide or alternatively a new pack can be designed.
It is good practice to incorporate over-temperature cut-outs and perhaps current limiting devices within the pack for safety reasons. Advice is available based upon the operating temperature range current drain and your other design criteria.
It is possible to combine NiCad or NiMH cells into any arrangement to create a battery pack. To create a useful drawing for us to work from there a few easy steps to follow.
1. I need a small 7.2V 1300mAh battery pack
2. 7.2V / 1.2V = 6 cells
3. Looking at the table on the previous webpage I can see that the AA or the 4/5 A cells have a high enough capacity. One of my requirements was a small pack so I shall choose the AA cells for lower overall volume
4. Either of the following configurations would work but the second suits my application better
