Q) What is the nominal voltage of a fully charged nickel-cadmium cell?
A) 1.2 volts
A nickel-cadmium cell is more commonly referred to as a, "NiCad battery". A NiCad battery is a type of rechargeable battery using nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. NiCads have a relatively low internal resistance, they can supply high surge currents which makes them a good choice for portable radio transceivers.
