Nickel-Cadmium (NiCad)
The nickel–cadmium battery is a type of rechargeable battery using nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. The abbreviation NiCd is derived from the chemical symbols of nickel and cadmium. NiCd batteries have a longer shelf life of around 10 years. The NiCd batteries sold on this site are High Temperature NiCds batteries with outstanding charge/discharge characteristics at both room temperature and high temperature up to 70°C (158°F).

Warning: Batteries, battery terminals, and related accessories can expose you to chemicals including Cadmium and Cadmium compounds, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov.


Edge-lit Exit Signs
An edge-lit exit sign or an edge-lit stairs sign is a type of sign that uses LEDs to illuminate a clear acrylic panel with the word EXIT or STAIRS printed on it. The LEDs shine on the edges of the panel, making the word and the arrows (if any) stand out. The rest of the panel appears transparent or mirrored, giving a sleek and modern look to the sign. Edge-lit signs are often used in places where aesthetics are important, such as hotels, restaurants, or offices. Edge-lit signs are also energy-efficient, durable, and easy to install and maintain.
