Consider the Fast Charge Option
There is an old rule of thumb about recharging batteries of forklifts. It goes something like: utilize a battery for 8 hours, charge it for 8 hours and then finally, allow it to cool for 8 hours. This formula has changed for lots of work operations which run more than one 8 hour shift. The fast charging choice has become an extremely popular alternative to conventional charging and ever since its development; lots of businesses have chosen to make the switch.
What Are the Advantages of Fast Charging?
Less Charging Time
It could 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 30 minutes! Numerous companies utilize scheduled break and lunch times to accomplish this important task.
The fast charge batteries would usually need a single-point watering system. This system means that users do not require removing the battery from the forklift in order to water it.
These new fast charge batteries have a thermistor located next to the center cell in order to monitor temperature. Once the temperature gets to a particular level, the charge rate is reduced and sometimes even stopped so as to make sure the battery does not overheat. Unfortunately, this process could lead to an undercharged battery. There are several specific fast charge battery brands which use extra thick posts, copper inserts and inter-cell connectors in order to decrease heat generation and increase conductivity 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 since the fast charge battery system was created. Before, companies used to require more than one equipment when they were operating around the clock; nowadays they could save much money and utilize one lift truck twice as much in a day with by utilizing the fast charging batteries.
