A nickel hydrogen rechargeable battery contains an electrode group made up of positive and negative electrode put together with a separator intervening therebetween. The positive electrode includes positive-electrode active material particles each having a base particle composed mainly of nickel hydroxide and a conductive layer that covers the surface of the base particle and is made from a Co compound containing Li. The negative electrode includes a rare earth-MgNi-based hydrogen storage alloy containing a rare-earth element, Mg and Ni. The total amount of Li contained in the battery is in a range of from 15 to 50 (mg/Ah) on the condition that the Li is converted into LiOH, and that the total amount of Li is found as a mass per Ah of positive electrode capacity.

A nickel hydrogen rechargeable battery has a positive electrode and a negative electrode. The positive electrode includes positive-electrode active material made of nickel hydroxide particles in which magnesium is dissolved, and the negative electrode includes rare earth-MgNi-based hydrogen storage alloy powder. At least either one of the negative and positive electrodes includes as additive at least one selected from a group including zinc and zinc compounds. The content of the additive ranges from 0.2 to 1.5 part by weight per 100 parts by weight of hydrogen storage alloy in the negative electrode, and ranges from 0.3 to 1.5 part by weight per 100 parts by weight of positive-electrode active material in the positive electrode.

A negative electrode for a nickel-hydrogen rechargeable battery is a strip-shaped negative electrode, the negative electrode being formed of a core body and a negative mixture layer covering the core body and containing hydrogen-storage alloy particles, including a main section, both sides of which face the positive electrode with the separator intervening therebetween as viewed in a rolled state where the negative electrode forms the electrode group with the positive electrode and the separator, and an outermost circumferential portion and an innermost circumferential portion that are protruding from ends of the main section in a rolling direction and facing the positive electrode with the separator intervening therebetween only with one side, wherein the hydrogen-storage alloy particles contained in the outermost circumferential portion and the innermost circumferential portion have an average diameter larger than an average diameter of the hydrogen-storage alloy particles contained in the main section.
