Consider the Fast Charge Option
Regarding the recharging the forklift battery, there is an old rule of thumb which goes something like this: use the battery for a shift of around 8 hours, charge it for 8 hours and afterward let it cool and rest for another 8 hours. This formula has changed for numerous work operations which run more than one 8 hour shift. The fast charging alternative has become a really popular alternative to traditional charging and since its evolution; many companies have opted to make the switch.
What Are the Benefits of Fast Charging?
Less Charging Time
It may take a typical charger to charge a battery from 20% charged to 100% charged in about 8 hours. Fast charging could now accomplish this same charging in roughly an hour to an hour and a half! Numerous companies use scheduled break and lunch times to complete this vital job.
The fast charge batteries will normally need a single-point watering system. This system means that users do not need to remove the battery from the lift truck to be able to water it.
There is a thermistor placed near the center cell on each new fast charge battery that helps it to monitor temperature. The charge rate is reduced and could sometimes stop when the temperatures get to a particular level. This is key so that the battery does not overheat. This method can unfortunately lead to an undercharged battery. There are several specific fast charge brands of batteries which use inter-cell connectors, extra thick posts and copper inserts so as to increase conductivity and reduce heat generation because of the higher current. These features help to allow the battery to accept a higher charge rate for a longer period of time.
These equipment have seen their overall productivity increase greatly ever since the fast charge battery system was created. In the past, companies used to require more than one machinery when they were operating around the clock; nowadays they could save a lot of money and utilize one forklift twice as much in a day with by using the fast charging batteries.
