General info Edit

The external of the battery was mostly in gray with N3-U and Tamiya labels on it. later revision of the same battery has the green recycle label on the lower part of the battery.

Compared to the Mini 4WD Ni-Cd Battery, the regular Ni-Cd battery from Tamiya has lower electric output.

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 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.
