For years the lead acid battery has been at the centre of every truck development. While the technology is simple and accessible, is also provides a number of issues such as large heavy weighted trucks, a regular need for battery maintenance and longer charging times.
Power Towards a Sustainable Future
At HC-Forklifts-UK, we now offer the next generation of Lithium-Ion powered forklifts and warehouse equipment. Thanks to years of market leading research and development, we offer the technology which provides businesses with significant performance advantages in the warehouse.
Market Leading CATL Li-ion Technology
Partnering up with Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd (CATL), a leading global supplier of lithium-ion battery products for electric vehicles, we ensure maximum efficiency, safety and comfort at minimum costs. It’s these sorts of advantages which has led to CATL working with numerous global car manufacturers including BMW, Volkswagen and Jaguar Land Rover.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Li-Ion batteries absorb much more of the energy input, with less waste. They also have the potential to replace old Diesel Counterbalance forklifts, making them the perfect choice for a greener future.
Thanks to a greater energy density compared to lead-acid batteries, Li-Ion batteries ensure longer working times, increasing truck availability. They can also last up to four times longer than conventional batteries and can be fully charged within 2 hours.
Longer Service Life
Li-Ion batteries come with a naturally long service life. They can go on for 4,000 full charging cycles with at least 80% residual capacity.
Reduced Energy and Battery Maintenance
Thanks to maintenance-free batteries, the operating costs of Li-Ion trucks are significantly less compared to lead acid powered trucks as there is no topping up of water or checking acid levels, saving you time and money.
Using an advanced Battery Management System, we ensure real-time monitoring of the battery status including heat management and over charge protection.
Cold Store Friendly
Did you know Li-Ion batteries maintain high performance at temperatures below freezing, making them suitable for cold store applications?
