Less maintenance, lower costs, environmental sustainability, and overall worker satisfaction are a few key benefits of using next-generation lithium-ion batteries (sometimes called LIBs) in forklifts.
These batteries offer a broad range of advantages for many warehouses and distribution centers because of the ease of charging. Opportunity charging provides the ability to plug in the battery without taking it out of the forklift, as opposed to swapping batteries its lead-acid counterpart requires.
High-throughput operations tend to see the biggest bang for their buck when using LIBs, but the benefits are broader than just the return on investment. As the technology behind these batteries advances, we see a broader range of companies using them.
Here are the 7 biggest reasons for your company to explore using lithium-ion batteries:
Lithium-ion forklift batteries are more energy-efficient and charge faster than lead-acid batteries, saving you time and money.
Your lithium-ion battery will typically last two to four times longer than a lead acid battery. This helps you keep up with those long workdays.
Lithium-ion batteries don’t need to be swapped out and can be opportunity-charged during operator breaks.
Lithium-ion forklift batteries don’t require traditional maintenance like watering or equalizing.
Operators can enjoy longer run-times and zero decline in performance as the battery discharges with forklifts powered by lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries have no emissions and their longevity may mean less battery disposal in the future.
Businesses can reclaim the area being using as a charging room for additional storage.
