FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62675 has been prepared by subcommittee 21A: Secondary cells

and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes, of IEC technical committee 21:

Secondary cells and batteries.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
21A/550/FDIS 21A/560/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

RECHARGEABLE SINGLE CELLS
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies marking, designation, dimensions, tests and

requirements for sealed nickel-metal hydride prismatic secondary single cells.

NOTE In this context, "prismatic" refers to cells having rectangular sides and base.

When there exists an IEC standard specifying test conditions and requirements for cells used

in special applications and which is in conflict with this standard, the former takes precedence.

2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and

are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For

undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any
amendments) applies.

IEC 60050-482:2004, International Electrotechnical Vocabulary (IEV) – Part 482: Primary and

secondary cells and batteries
3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in the IEC 60050-482, as

well as the following apply.
3.1
sealed cell

cell which remains closed and does not release either gas or liquid when operated within the

limits of charge and temperature specified by the manufacturer

Note 1 to entry: The cell is equipped with a safety device to prevent dangerously high internal pressure.

Note 2 to entry: The cell does not require addition to the electrolyte and is designed to operate during its life in its

original sealed state.

Note 3 to entry: The nickel-metal hydride cell, however, may release gas towards the end of its life due to the

accumulation of hydrogen in the cell.

[SOURCE: IEC 60050-482:2004, 482-05-17, modified – The existing note has been developed

into Notes 1, 2 and 3 to entry.]
3.2
nominal voltage

suitable approximate value of voltage used to designate or identify the voltage of a cell or

battery

Note 1 to entry: The nominal voltage of a sealed nickel-metal hydride rechargeable single cell: 1,2 V.

Note 2 to entry: The nominal voltage of a battery of n series connected cells is equal to n times the nominal

voltage of a single cell.

3.3
rated capacity

capacity value of a battery determined under specified conditions and declared by the

manufacturer

Note 1 to entry: The rated capacity is the quantity of electricity C Ah (ampere-hours) declared by the

manufacturer which a battery can deliver when discharged at the reference test current of 0,2 I A to a final voltag
