Properties of hydrogen-absorbing alloys, anode coils

Hydrogen-absorbing alloys, also known as metal hydrides, are made from a compound of rare earths such as misch metal, nickel and cobalt.

Applications of hydrogen-absorbing alloys and anode coils

They are used in the AA and AAA Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries available commercially.
They are also used for various other articles such tools and household electrical appliances.
When compared to lithium-ion batteries that are used for the same purposes, what these batteries lack in compactness they make up for in price.
In addition, when compared to the nickel-cadmium batteries used for similar purposes, Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are clean and harmless, which explains their usage through Europe and elsewhere.

Supporting the future through hybrid cars

“Hybrid cars”. In fact, the batteries used inside hybrid vehicles are made from Nickel-Metal Hydride. On top of this, a large amount of magnets containing rare earths are found in hybrid cars, meaning, in effect, that these cars are supported by rare earths.
