SAFT – Nife Nickel cadmium batteries

SAFT’s Ni-Cd battery is the most reliable battery available. These batteries are used to ensure safe operation in demanding applications. Saft Nife Ni-Cd batteries combine exceptionally good electrical properties with a very strong physical structure. The wide range of products offers the right battery for every requirement of different applications.

The advantages of Ni-Cd batteries include a very long service life (over 20 years in local use), low life cycle costs, low need for maintenance, durable design, reliability (no sudden crash) and a wide operating temperature range (-50 °C to +70 °C).

The most common application for Ni-Cd batteries is local use e.g. substations, alarm and emergency lighting systems, railways, solar systems, telecom and aircraft batteries.
