Nickel-zinc batteries are mercury free


Nickel-zinc batteries are mercury free

Developed as an ideal cost-effective and highly-reliable substitute to conventional primary silver oxide (Ag2O) button cells, the new mercury-free primary nickel-zinc(NiOOH) batteries from VARTA Microbattery are manufactured with high quality raw materials, leakage protection, size, shape, and quality standards equivalent to popular mercury-free primary SR silver-oxide (Ag2O) products. As nickel-zinc cell pricing is not tied to the volatility inherent in the silver market, end product pricing for retailers and OEMs is not adversely effected by material cost fluctuations. VARTA Microbattery's nickel zinc cells may be confidently specified for use in a wide range of miniature, low voltage power source applications in which high-reliability, eco-friendly mercury-free cells are required. The ZR Nickel Zinc (NiOOH) System is particularly suited for watches (analog and digital) as it notably complies with the requirements of the international IEC 60086-3 standard for watch batteries. Moreover, the cells are highly appropriate for use in such medical devices as blood sugar indicators, insulin pumps and thermometers, as well as in electronic calculators, laser pointers, toys, and remote control applications.
