Abstract The recently commercialized nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery is well suited to applications where high energy density, high rate charge discharge and good service life are required. In order to achieve charge-discharge and cycle life characteristics of Ni-MH cells a new high energy density positive electrode is required. In this work the electrochemical properties of foam nickel electrode and sintered nickel electrode are studied by using life cycle tests and cyclic voltammetry techniques. It is evident from the results that the foam nickel electrode is suitable for high-energy applications and the sintered nickel electrode is suitable for high rate applications.
