Nickel Cadmium Vented Type Batteries

HBL offers the widest range of nickel cadmium pocket plate batteries available from any manufacturer. We offer high, medium and low rate battery types allowing you to select the most cost effective battery based on your load requirements.

The field proven pocket plate electrode for nickel cadmium batteries is still considered to be one of the most reliable, robust designs of any battery. They survive in high temperature environments where lead batteries regularly fail – and perform in low temperatures when lead batteries need dramatic oversizing and risk freezing.

Nickel cadmium batteries are deployed where the customer demands the highest reliability and long lived batteries. Often the battery of choice for utilities, railroads and oil and gas installations – the pocket plate battery has a proven track record from the Arctic to the deserts of the Middle East.

HBL’s NCPP batteries are available as 1.2 V single cells & multi-voltage blocks.

NCPP ranges comply with IS 10918 & IEC 60623 and certified by Intertek – USA.
