NICAD - NiCad - NICD íV Nickel Cadmium --

"The standard rechargeable RC battery. The most common type of battery in use, although it is being phased out of production because of environmental concerns. Easily rechargeable, RC hobbyist must be aware that continued charging of this type of battery when it is still partially charged will lead to """"cell memory"""" and decreased runtime and performance.
These batteries are best stored at about 1/4 charge íV it is recommended to use a 30 ohm resistor across the + and íV sides when storing NiCad fully discharged,. NiCads produce 1.2V per cell (resulting in 7.2V for a 6 cell pack). NiCad (as well as NiMH) packs should run around 150* after a good full run. A standard NiCad pack can usually provide about 3 to 4 runs a day without damage to the cells, as long as the pack is allowed to cool before charging."
