  Consumer concerns drive rechargeable battery developments | KOMO 1000 News Radio - News, Weather and Sports - Seattle, ...
Now, major battery makers are recharging their offerings with new models that promise to hold their power longer and don't have to be plugged in for hours before the first use.
They're made of the same elements as standard nickel-metal hydride rechargeables, but the nickel-metal alloy is treated with a chemical process that allows the batteries to hold their juice longer, the company said.
The batteries, which also are fully charged out of the box, can hold their power for up to two years when they're not being used, Sanyo said.

  Rechargeable battery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rechargeable batteries are batteries that can be restored to full charge by the application of electrical energy.
Some types of rechargeable batteries are susceptible to damage due to reverse charging if they are fully discharged; other types need to be fully discharged occasionally in order to maintain the capacity for deep discharge.
Reverse charging is when a rechargeable battery is recharged with its polarity reversed.

 Battery (electricity) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A battery explosion is caused by the misuse or malfunction of a battery, such as attempting to recharge a primary battery, or short circuiting a battery.
When a battery is recharged at an excessive rate, an explosive gas mixture of hydrogen and oxygen may be produced faster than it can escape from within the walls of the battery, leading to pressure build-up and the possibility of the battery case bursting.
This battery is notable in that it contains a liquid in an unsealed container, requiring that the battery be kept upright and the area be well-ventilated to ensure safe dispersal of the hydrogen gas which is vented by these batteries during overcharging.

 | Nintendo - Customer Service | Nintendo DS - Battery FAQ |
Battery life largely depends upon the game being played, but it can last about 10 hours, which is comparable to the Game Boy Advance SP.
We recommend charging the battery pack completely before its first use, or after you have not used it for a long time (the battery should be recharged at least once every six months).
Yes, it is possible to play your Nintendo DS while the battery is recharging; however, this will cause the charging process to take longer than the typical four hours when the system is not being played at the same time.

 Halfbakery: Rechargeable Battery Analyzer
One of the most common causes of premature failure in rechargeable batteries is backdriving; if a somewhat weak cell is put in a series with a stronger one, the stronger one may push current through the weaker one, damaging it severely.
I would propose that a rechargeable battery charging unit that includes a function to cycle batteries and measure their performance on the charge/discharge cycles.
To put it another way, the concept of measuring battery performance is hardly new, but I'm unaware of any efforts to use such data for 'grouping' similarly-performing batteries, nor of any devices optimized toward that goal.

 Steve's Digicams - Rechargeable Battery Information
The low rate pulse maintenance charge ensures that batteries are not overcharged when left in the charger for extended periods of time and are always ready to use.
Common to all types of rechargeable batteries is a thing called "self discharge" where the battery actually loses power even though the device it's in is turned off.
I'm not a "battery wizard" and I don't know the exact rate of self discharge (it varies between capacity and battery chemistry) -- but it is something you should be aware of.

 PC World - NEC Develops Organic Battery For IT Use   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
TOKYO -- NEC researchers say they have developed a new type of rechargeable battery that is based on organic compounds and could be useful in a wide range of IT-related applications.
The Organic Radical Battery, or ORB, is based on a similar cell structure to a lithium ion battery, of the type commonly found in devices such as notebook computers and cell phones, but with one significant difference: instead of using poisonous ingredients like lithium and cobalt, it uses an organic compound called PTMA.
With enough current supplied the battery can be charged to about 80 percent of its capacity in just one minute, which could make it suitable for wireless applications where fast charging is advantageous, said Satoh.
