Default Re: Who makes the best NiCads?

Ni-Cds and low temperatures. Maybe the chemistry improved over the years but those folk interested in Clansman radios will know that they use Ni-Cd batteries and the radios came with a battery extension lead for use in "low" temperatures when the poor squaddy was supposed to stuff the battery inside his jacket to keep it's temperature up. A Clansman battery inside one's jacket must be the most uncomfortable thing I can think of!
