About NiMH Batteries:
There are many advantages of using NiMh Airsoft batteries, including longer lifespan, lower sensitivity, and simpler chargers and routines required for use. The main advantage of Nickel Metal Hydride cells are that they have a much longer lifespan than standard lithium polymer cells. Nickel metal hydride cells usually last into the 1,000 cycles range compared to lithium polymer cells, which last on an average of 150-250 cycles. NiMh cells also have a much less sensitive chemistry than Li-po cells lowering the risk of fires that are associated with Li-po batteries. Another major advantage of nickel metal hydride cells is that they do not require any maintenance to ensure their performance. They do not exhibit memory characteristics like Nickel Cadmium batteries, which require a periodic discharge. This does not affect nickel metal hydride cells, so battery maintenance is not required.
Please Note: NiMH batteries MUST be charged using a NiMH charger.
