What is a lithium-ion battery forklift?
Forklift lithium-ion batteries have a very high energy density, a low discharge rate, and no memory loss. While lithium is a lighter material, these batteries still require either a bodybuilder or a machine to move, weighing between 500 and 2,500 pounds.
What kind of batteries are forklift batteries?
Forklift batteries are usually Flooded Lead-Acid or Wet Cell batteries, which contain charged plates suspended in a mixture of sulfuric acid and water. In a battery, the electrolytes are suspended between two oppositely charged plates within a mixture of water and acid.
What are the characteristics of a lithium battery?
The lithium-ion battery (Li-ion) has many desirable characteristics, including high energy density, long cycle life, and high power density (Table 2). Because of these characteristics, along with their ability to discharge rapidly, they are ideal for portable electronics.
Benefits of Using a Lithium-ion Forklift Battery
Reduced energy bills. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion forklift batteries are more energy-efficient and charge faster.
Longevity of the equipment.
Downtime is reduced.
Labor costs are reduced.
Productivity is improved.
Less Environmental Impact.
