NIMH - NiMH - Nickel-Metal Hydride (NIMH) --

"A common rechargeable RC battery. This type of battery has no """"cell memory"""", but features slightly less voltage than nickel-cadmium batteries. This means that for racers it is slightly less desirable but for most RC hobbyists these batteries are better because of less concern for maintenance.
They are best stored at around 1/2 charge to fully charged to maintain performance. NiMH batteries tend to offer higher initial voltage and longer run times than NiCads (but like NiCads, they still produce 1.2V per cell), and their ease of use makes them popular among RC crowds. A typical NiMH pack will temp at about 140* - 150* after a good run, and if allowed to cool before charging, should safely provide around 4 to 5 runs a day without damage to the cells."
