Generally speaking, NiCd and NiMH batteries can be interchanged. But we always recommend that you follow the instructions given on the battery pack. It ensures safety and effectiveness for both the battery and your device. NiMH batteries are better in quality and performance compared to NiCd batteries. So, in your case, there is no need to switch over to NiCd batteries.
I don’t know much about cordless phones. What should I consider before buying a cordless phone battery?
There are quite a few crucial factors to be considered before buying cordless phone replacement batteries. Settle on a battery that holds charge for many hours. Regarding power capacity, energy density, chemistry and many other factors, NiMH batteries are considered much better than NiCd batteries. Rechargeable NiMH batteries are reliable, high performing and eco-friendly as well. Authenticity is also a crucial factor while choosing a battery.

My cordless phone accidentally fell into water. I tried drying the battery using a hand fan. Can I disassemble the battery to wipe it clean?
No. Do not disassemble your battery at any cost. Disassembling a battery generates gas and exposes the electrolyte present inside. Short circuit may also occur. It’s a good thing you did not use a hair dryer on the battery as high heat may cause further damage. Reassemble your phone, if it doesn’t work, you may have to replace the battery as using a damaged battery is dangerous. We recommend that you replace your battery. Go for good quality cordless phone replacement batteries.
It’s always a hassle to cycle a stored cordless phone battery several times before using it. Is there any other way to keep the battery conditioned and ready for use?
Yes, there is. You can discharge your battery before storage if you are not going to use the battery for a couple of weeks. If the battery is not going to be used for a long period of time, then charge and discharge it 2 to 3 times every month. This way, you can use the battery directly whenever need arises.
I charged a fairly old NiMH battery with a NiMH charger. After about 10 to 15 minutes, I noticed smoke coming out from the battery? What’s wrong?
As it’s a rather old NiMH battery, we think the smoke emission is due to problems with chemicals used in the battery. Do not reuse the battery as it may cause further damage to the charger and your cordless phone. As a replacement, you can opt for high performing NiMH batteries like the Uniden BT-8001 Cordless Phone Battery, if it’s compatible with your cordless phone model.
