  • Samsung Display to Increase Production of Ni-H Batteries
  • August 3, 1998 (SEOUL) -- Samsung Display Devices Co., Ltd. said it will gradually increase production of rechargeable nickel-hydrogen batteries to 100,000 units a month by the end of 1998.
    Most nickel-hydrogen batteries were imported before the company developed its own product in late 1996.

    Nickel-hydrogen batteries are widely used in camcoders, notebook PCs and cellular phones.

    Samsung Display Devices said its nickel-hydrogen battery capacity reached 1,900 mAh, surpassing Japanese products, which have a capacity of 1,750 mAh.

    The company said the batteries will be used primarily in camcoders.

    The company said it will develop other kinds of rechargeable batteries, such as lithium-ion and lithium-polymer batteries, this year.
