Rechargeable batteries such as Ni-MH, Li-ion and PbA batteries for hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) applications produce trace amounts of hydrogen gas due to the electro-chemical processes during battery charging/discharging processes. Especially, as the battery reaches its full state of charge, over-charged current causes more liberation of hydrogen during the electrolysis reaction. As such, a typical HEV battery package requires a proper hydrogen ventilation design.
