V-Tech 80-5848-00-00 Battery
Say goodbye to old and exhausted NiCd batteries and equip your V-Tech cordless phone with the V-Tech 80-5848-00-00 Battery. Once they are replaced, you don’t have to change cordless phone batteries for a long time! When compared to NiCd batteries, this NiMH battery offers 40% higher energy density and is eco-friendly too. So, consider buying the V-Tech 80-5848-00-00 Cordless Phone Battery that is worth your investment!
I was previously using a NiCd battery for my cordless phone but replaced it with a NiMH battery. Should I store the NiMH battery in the same way I stored the NiCd battery?
Not really! NiCd and NiMH batteries are stored differently. You would have probably stored your NiCd battery in a fully-discharged state. But, following the same storage procedure for your NiMH battery is not advisable. Say for instance, if you are using the V-Tech 80-5848-00-00 Battery, you need to store it in a fully-charged state.
When does the internal resistance of a NiMH battery exceed its limit? What is the outcome of this problem?
When a battery is overcharged or its external terminals are connected with a conductive material, then there are chances of short circuit. Short circuit might sometimes raise the electrolyte temperature or build up internal gas pressure. At this stage, the internal resistance of a NiMH battery increases. Consequently, the electrolyte leaks and causes serious damage to the battery. To overcome this problem, modern NiMH batteries come designed with a safety vent, which allows the excess gas to escape the cell before it ruptures and leaks.
I see a lot of dust accumulated in the battery compartment when I open up my cordless phone. Will this dust affect the performance of my battery?
The chances of dust affecting your cordless phone battery’s performance are high! So, do not overlook cleaning up the battery compartment and the battery itself. The best way to clean the battery compartment and your NiMH battery is by rubbing them with a clean pencil rubber or a rough dry cloth. Avoid using liquid cleansers to clean, because this will not only damage the battery, but your cordless phone as well. If you are using the V-Tech 80-5848-00-00 Cordless Phone Battery, use the above cleaning procedure to enhance its performance.
I have heard that NiCd batteries should be compulsorily recycled as they are highly toxic. But NiMH batteries don’t contain the deadly toxic, Cadmium. So, can I just dispose dead NiMH batteries?
Basically, it is highly recommended that you recycle all rechargeable batteries, regardless of whether they are NiCd or NiMH. Even though NiMH batteries do not contain the highly toxic Cadmium, it has a combination of less toxic chemicals, which when spilled in large amounts, might cause small hazards. Hence, you should recycle Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries the same way you do for NiCd batteries. Batteries Direct strongly recommends battery recycling! So, drop the dead NiMH battery in a tightly-sealed plastic bag and ship it back to us. We will take care of the rest!
