HODDESDON, United Kingdom - ANSMANN has launched the maxE/maxE+ range of long-lasting rechargeable NiMH batteries that are ideal for use in industrial portable equipment applications.

Typically, rechargeable batteries have not been used in industrial portable equipment due to their characteristic to rapidly self-discharge in just a few weeks, making it necessary to regularly re-charge batteries before equipment can be used, particularly if its use is infrequent.

However, the low self-discharge feature of the maxE/maxE+ batteries, which remain 85 percent charged even after a year, overcomes this problem, making them suitable for a whole range of industrial portable applications for which only traditional throw-away alkaline batteries would have previously been used.

Pre-charged for immediate, out-of-the-packet use, the maxE/maxE+ batteries are available in seven different sizes including the AAA, AA, C, D and 9V E block. SubC and flat-top AA sizes are also available for use in battery pack assembly. The maxE batteries support a maximum charge current of up to 1200 mAh and can be re-charged in a standard charger. To provide even higher capacities maxE+ batteries are available in AA (2500 mAh) and E block (250 mAh) formats.


The worldwide headquarters of ANSMANN AG is in Assamstadt in Germany. The division ANSMANN RACING has its office in the "Hobby Town" of Nuremberg.

This truly international company has further subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Great Britain, Macau, Italy, France, Sweden and Baltics. Around 50 World Sales Partners take care of the worldwide sale
