Continuing from a special issue in Batteries in 2016, nineteen new papers focusing on recent research activities in the field of nickel/metal hydride (Ni/MH) batteries have been selected for the 2017 Special Issue of Ni/MH Batteries. These papers summarize the international joint-efforts in Ni/MH battery research from BASF, Wayne State University, Michigan State University, FDK Corp. (Japan), Institute for Energy Technology (Norway), Central South University (China), University of Science and Technology Beijing (China), Zhengzhou University of Light Industry (China), Inner Mongolia University of Science and Technology (China), Shenzhen Highpower (China), and University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa) from 2016–2017 through reviews of AB2 metal hydride alloys, Chinese and EU Patent Applications, as well as descriptions of research results in metal hydride alloys, nickel hydroxide, electrolyte, and new cell type, comparison work, and projections of future works.
