Like other nickel-cadmium batteries (regardless of what brands is), it has high self-discharge rate and is not environment-friendly due to the cadmium content the battery contains.

However, as with other nickel-cadmium batteries, it suffers from a high self-discharge rate and contains cadmium, the use of which has declined in recent years due to its [[wikipedia:Cadmium poisoning|toxicity]]. This, along with the memory effect common with other nickel-cadmium batteries, led to it being discontinued and replaced by nickel–metal hydride batteries like the [[NeoChamp]].
