About this product


Product overview

• Hybrid batteries are the next generation of rechargeable batteries combining the benefits of alkaline batteries with the performance of rechargeable batteries• Supplied fully charged and ready to use out of the box • Can be used to power low drain devices (clocks, remote controls) as well as high drain devices (digital cameras)• Long storage and shelf life and retain their charge for up to 12 months • Use with any NiMH battery charger• Provide high power even at low temperatures down to -10°C• Re-charged over and over again - up to 1000 times • Low cost per use (less than 2p per charge) in comparison to disposable alkaline batteries• Long life cycle and use of non-toxic materials makes them the eco-friendly alternative to disposable alkaline batteries

Whereas standard rechargeable batteries must be charged before first use, Hybrid batteries are supplied fully charged and ready to use. They have a very slow discharge rate and can retain their charge for up to 12 months, which makes them ideal for use in a wide range of devices. They are suitable for use in high drain applications such as digital cameras as well as low drain devices such as clocks and remote controls. Hybrid batteries perform especially well in low temperatures - as low as -10°C - making them ideal for outdoor use in winter as well as in high temperatures during the summer.Hybrid batteries can be used in any standard battery charger with a charge time of 1 hour or more, but it is not recommended to charge the batteries in a 30-minute or 15-minute charger as this could affect the battery performance.With up to 1000 life cycles, these batteries can be charged over and over again, which means their cost per use is much lower than a disposable alkaline battery (approximately 2p per charge per cell) and as they contain no harmful materials and are recyclable they are the environmentally friendly option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought these two cells on-line because my local Maplin Store only had three packs in stodk and I required four.

Asked by: Neazo
It would depend on the voltage requirements for that 40W and the number of cells being used.

I've tried to charge these with your charger  N65CX and the charger light does not turn off from red even after 12 hours of charging. Instructions supplied say that charger lights go out when charged then trickle feed but this does not happen.

I am using your  N45HX  Hybrid  "C"  cells in a piece of test equipment.  When they need re-charging what current and time do I have to provide  ? Also your  N46CY  hybrid "AA"  cells re-charge current and time ?  Thanks.  

Asked by: Derrick
The item will charge fine in a NiMh chargers but it is not recommended to charge the batteries in a 30-minute or 15-minute charger as this could affect the battery performance.
