Ni Cd batteries are not prone to sudden failure as they are not prone to corrosion phenomenon due to superior electrochemistry.Advantage Ni Cd Lead Acid batteries are rated for C10 discharge rate where as Ni Cd batteries are rated for C5 discharge rate therefore they can provide longer backup duration when needed. Highly resistant to abuse and harsh environment. . Highly reliable and long service life. Expected life in stationary applications in 20 years.
