Engineers are looking to use the renewable energy sources around us to power the products we use. Thus reducing our carbon footprint and cost too.
In this application note we examine the V500HT NiMH cell from VARTA Microbattery and its use as a battery to power outdoor lighting after being charged using solar energy.
The V500HT NiMH cell is a highly capable 1.2V NiMH cell that is manufactured in Germany and is UL approved.
It can be trickle charged and has a good over charge capability. Pls see the attached cell data sheet for its full specification.
It can be combined into packs consisting of up to 10 cells to give various voltage levels up to 12V (10 cells at 1.2V each).
Farnell stock this cell as the single cell.
Plus also as many different packs with different voltages. Click here to see them all.
To see the specific packs on the application note click on the VARTA part number below that you are interested in.
Clearly, these packs once charged can be used to power many other applications too.
