1.2V Battery Information
A 1.2V battery is a battery that has the smallest voltage. It is usually made of nickel-cadmium (NiCD) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) chemistry. It is usually used for smaller household electronics such as the electric shaver. NiMH battery doubles the NiCD battery capacity.
1.2V batteries are rechargeable and have longer shelf life than other batteries. 1.2V NiMH battery is also known as the “household type” as it is commonly used in most household devices. However, there are certain devices that require 1.2V NiCD rechargeable batteries only.

Which battery chemistry should I choose for my 1.2V battery-operated household devices?
NiMH batteries are the “household type” rechargeable batteries, so these are the most preferred ones. There are also replacement sizes and battery chemistry available. However, such devices as the power tools and outdoor solar lighting specifically require NiCad batteries only, so it is best to check with your device’s specifications and manufacturer to get the best possible performance.
What is the main difference between NiMH and NiCD 1.2V battery?
The main difference lies in usage and environmental issues. Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries are eco-friendly and used in digital cameras, electric shaver, and other household items. In some cases, these batteries are not interchangeable. For instance, NiMH batteries have “high capacity” and low self-discharge, making it very ideal for use in digital cameras. On the other hand, NiCad batteries are the best fit for outdoor solar lights and power tools. Nickel Cadmium batteries produce a high discharge rate initially. NiCad also maintains better strength during cold weather. The best thing to do is to check your device about specific battery recommendations to optimize your device’s functionalities.
