Taking time to properly care for your forklift batteries could save you turnaround time and improve your bottom line. Let us design a forklift battery handling solution that will meet your needs and keep your operation running smoothly.
Forklift Batteries & Chargers That Keep Your Business Moving
A typical forklift battery, if cared for properly, should last between five and seven years. However, this is rarely the case due to poor charging practices. Abel Womack carries an extensive line of batteries and battery chargers based on your material handling application to ensure your forklifts and pallet jacks achieve optimum performance- every day, every shift. All our forklift batteries come with a comprehensive warranty and are backed by our outstanding product support. Selection of the correct battery is a necessity to achieve optimal results. Batteries are not only sized differently but even batteries of the same size and configuration have different power profiles, based on the cell technology. As they therefore have different price points, matching the right battery to your specific requirements is prudent.
Battery Chargers have evolved in the last decade and now offer a multitude of choices. For traditional one shift operations, today’s high frequency chargers are much more flexible and energy efficient, permitting the same charger to charge batteries of multiple voltages and to do so at an AC:DC efficiency rate of 92%- reducing your electrical requirements.
For heavy usage and multiple shift applications, multiple batteries per vehicle with battery changers is still popular. That said, some applications lend themselves to “fast” charging and” opportunity” charging. This technology allows a battery to run extended periods of time by permitting the battery to be charged periodically throughout the workday rather than only being charged once while off shift. Under the right circumstances, these technologies can result in one battery lasting for long run times, eliminating or at least mitigating the need for battery changing. To determine the applicability of these technologies, a free analysis of your workday requirements is strongly recommended.
