FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T6A10)

Q) What is the nominal voltage of a fully charged nickel-cadmium cell?

A) 1.2 volts

NJ2X Notes:
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.
