People are trying to use metal hydrides
as hydrogen storage devices.
can undergo a process called reversible chemisorption, allowing them to store and release extra hydrogen held by weak chemical bonds.
The hydrogen storage research at HRL Laboratories is focused on destabilizing light metal hydrides
so that they more easily release the hydrogen.

According to Mudawar, "This process is reversible, meaning the hydrogen gas may be released from the metal hydride
by decreasing the pressure in the storage vessel.
This property is particularly noticeable in rechargeable batteries such as Nickel Metal Hydride
recently announced it has purchased the hydrogen business of New Jersey-based metal hydride
product developer Ergenics, Inc.
Digi-Key is stocking lithium, nickel-cadmium and nickel metal hydride
batteries in a wide variety of sizes as well as battery packs made with SANYO batteries.
Vancouver, British Columbia-based proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell (FC) and metal hydride
hydrogen storage products developer and manufacturer Palcan Fuel Cells recently unveiled a new two-wheel electric scooter powered by its two-kilowatt (kW) FC stack system at a FC conference in Vancouver.
Uniross is a global leader in rechargeable batteries and chargers, offering a complete range of long-life Nickel Metal Hydride
batteries that last up to five times longer than alkaline batteries and can be recharged whenever desired or needed for at least three years.
For this study, the global nickel battery market has been segmented into two battery chemistries, nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride
The XRT currently uses six metal hydride
canisters for fuel storage, which weigh approximately 30 total pounds.
