The performance of a commercial-grade 1.2-V/6-Ah nickel/metal hydride cell is reported in terms of discharge characteristics and cycle life. The cell is comprised of compacted, metal hydride negative electrodes, made out of a stoichiometric $AB_2$ -Laves phase with nominal composition $Zr_{0.5} Ti_{0.5} V_{0.6} Cr_{0.2} Ni_{1.2}$ , and sintered nickel positive electrodes. The cell can withstand prolonged charge–discharge schedules with little deterioration in performance. The effect of varying discharge rate and temperature is also examined.
