Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Akkus
German term or phrase: Nl-Ca Geräte
Es geht um Akku-Geräte für den Heimwerker.

Während bisher im Text immer von NiCd Akkus die Rede war, taucht plötzlich der Begriff Nl-Ca Geräte auf.

Fehler des Schreibers oder Editors? Nickel wird mit "ni" abgekürzt und Ca wäre streng genommen Kalzium...

Explanation:
It's nickel-cadmium (batteries) - just as your previous instance - the Germans use both abbreviations. I imagine there is more than one author involved.

Makes sense, because this is used in consumer language, not just technical - and "NiCd"cannot be pronounced.
