After more than two decades of flawless service in demanding hybrid electric vehicle and consumer applications, NiMH battery technology offers many attractive attributes for telecom and other stationary applications. Yet, despite a demonstrated need for an advanced battery replacement for VRLA in challenging installations, major users are hesitant to adopt new battery technologies given past experience. Telcordia GR-3168-CORE "Generic Requirements for Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Battery Systems for Telecommunications Use", is a new standard that should be published before the opening session of Battcon 2012. This paper will examine the attributes of NiMH technology in light of the requirements outlined in GR-3168-CORE.
