Do You Really Need Lithium or Will Nickel Metal Hydride Suffice?

In recent years, the use of lithium-ion batteries has been steadily growing. You find them in applications historically dominated by nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and nickel cadmium (NiCad) batteries.

Is the lithium-ion battery so superior that it should replace NiMH batteries in all applications? When is NiMH a better solution? What attributes does it have that are better than lithium-ion?

In this webinar, we answer those questions while reviewing the background and history of both battery chemistries and looking into the weight, risks, costs, and more in comparing lithium ion to nickel metal hydride.
