This paper presents the preparation procedure and conditions of the air electrode for metal hydride/air secondary battery, which has been developing for high energy density applications such as electric vehicles and solar power energy storage. The prepared air electrodes used different types of carbon as the conducting material with bi-functional catalyst for oxygen evolution and reduction, Bi<sub>2</sub>Ru<sub>2</sub>O<sub>7-z</sub>, and PTFE. The air electrode’s performance was examined with a three-electrode cell with 6 mol/L KOH solutions. The carbon material and preparation conditions affected the internal structure of the air electrode, and this caused a large difference in the polarization behaviors of the air electrode. The SEM and EDX analysis of the air electrode was also performed to show the internal and surface structure.
