NiMH Battery Module Suits Electric Transport Applications

Saft Batteries’ new VH Module nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries are designed for urban mobility applications such as electric bicycles, scooters, the Segway and other personal electric transportation vehicles. These second-generation VH Module batteries are composed of complex electronic systems, which manage the charge and the discharge of the battery to extend the battery’s life cycle. In addition, Saft’s VH Module features a parallel installation of several modules to increase the capacity, gain of energy when braking, and continuous current up to 50 A. The VH Module features recent innovations from Saft for enhanced performance and maximizing the battery’s service life. The housing, connections and safety electronics have been improved to provide a more reliable and top-quality energy source. The module features a state-of-charge indicator (LEDs or 2-wire bus) for easy monitoring and maintenance.
