Unlike traditional NiMH batteries, the Powerex Precharged batteries can be stored for an extended period of time without substantial loss of power and are ready to use out-of-package. A common problem that plagues rechargeable batteries is that they need to be recharged about once every one to three months even if they are not used. This issue was tackled by developing advanced electrode materials to reduce the rate of power loss during storage. As a result, the Powerex Precharged batteries retain up to 85% of its charge even after one year of storage. The Powerex Precharged batteries are shipped pre-charged and ready to use.
The Powerex Precharged batteries differ from the competition in that they boast higher capacities as well as increased power retention in storage. The Powerex Precharged batteries can be recharged up to 1000 times and perform extraordinarily well at elevated temperatures. In addition, the Powerex Precharged batteries feature a low-impedance design and can deliver a high burst of current.
