A comparative study of electrochemical characteristics of alloy compositions hydrogensorbing type AB5 – Nickel (as an activator, a conductive additive), depending on the size distribution of the components have been done. Results have determined that for simplification activation and increases of discharge capacity Metal-hydride an electrode the composition consisting of a powder hydrogensorbing of an alloy with the sizes of particles from 50 to 100 micrometers and the electroconductive additive with diameter of particles less 0,5 micrometers is optimum.
