Consider the Fast Charge Option
When it comes to recharging the forklift battery, there is an old rule of thumb that goes something like this: utilize the battery for a shift of around 8 hours, charge it for 8 hours and then let it cool and rest for another 8 hours. This formula has changed for many work operations which run more than one 8 hour shift. The fast charging choice has become a very common alternative to traditional charging and since its evolution; numerous businesses have opted to make the switch.
What Are the Advantages of Fast Charging?
Less Charging Time
It could take a standard charger to charge a battery from 20% charged to 100% charged in approximately 8 hours. Fast charging could now accomplish this same charging in approximately an hour to an hour and a half! Lots of businesses use scheduled lunch and break times to accomplish this important job.
The fast charge batteries will normally need a single-point watering system. This system means that users do not require removing the battery from the lift truck to be able to water it.
These new fast charge batteries have a thermistor located close to the center cell so as to monitor temperature. Once the temperature gets to a specific level, the charge rate is reduced and occasionally even stopped in order to make sure the battery does not overheat. Unfortunately, this method could result in an undercharged battery. There are several specific fast charge battery brands that utilize inter-cell connectors, extra thick posts and copper inserts in order to increase conductivity and reduce heat generation due to 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 production increase significantly since the fast charge battery system was created. In the past, businesses used to require more than one machinery when they were operating around the clock; now they could save much money and utilize one lift truck twice as much in a day with by utilizing the fast charging batteries.
