Dispose of batteries properly. Ni-Cads in particular are far from biodegradable

As a designer and manufacturer of battery belts and other associated power equipment, I have been asked to write an article about the benefits and disadvantages of the various battery technologies, with particular reference to the sort of applications used by readers of this journal. My notes here havelithium X130e been necessarily generalised, and are not necessarily related to any manufacturer's specific product, although I have used a few examples from manufacturer's product lists for comparison purposes. In particular the major manufacturers are continuously improving their products, so any cost, capacity or weight comparisons I make may not apply to the particular devices you are familiar with.

First of all, before we start, when dealing with batteries, please observe the following safety notes:

Do not dismantle any battery, most of the chemicals are poisonous and/or corrosive.

Do not dispose of batteries by trying to burn them, or otherwise get them too hot, since the chemicals will be forced out of the case, often violently.

Dispose of batteries properly. Ni-Cads in particular are far from biodegradable or environmentally friendly, so you shouldn't just put them in the dustbin, and in fact the use of Ni-Cads are prohibited in some countries.

In my experience, most confusion with electrical matters stems from folk not understanding the basic concepts and terminology. If you appreciate the difference between an Amp (I don't mean an amplifier!) and a Volt, between series connections and parallel connections, own and know how to use a simple lithium X200 multimeter, then you will be able to understand the following notes and be able to avoid getting into all sorts of trouble with basic battery usage and maintenance, so read on....
