Release Date:2022-12-26 Views:522

There are two types of batteries for electric forklifts, lead-acid batteries and lithium batteries. From the perspective of battery type, the choice of forklift battery is not complicated, but some other factors often make it difficult for decision makers to decide! For example: capacity, charging speed, cycle life, brand, price, etc., choosing a matching battery is related to the follow-up of the enterprise production operations, so selecting the correct forklift battery is critical.

Nowadays, environmental protection is an issue advocated by all walks of life. With the advancement of lithium battery materials, lithium-ion batteries can be quickly charged at any time on electric forklifts, and their advantages such as long life are becoming more and more prominent. The advantage of electric forklifts is that they are quiet and environmentally friendly. I believe everyone can understand this, and there is no pollution when working indoors. At present, most of the batteries used in electric forklifts on the market are lithium batteries. Of course, there are also lead-acid batteries. So what are the advantages of using lithium batteries for forklifts compared to lead-acid batteries?


Compared with large batteries such as lead-acid and nickel-cadmium, lithium batteries do not contain elements that pollute the environment such as cadmium, lead, and mercury, and are pollution-free. When charging, it will not produce "hydrogen evolution" phenomenon similar to that of lead-acid batteries, and will not corrode wire terminals and battery boxes, which is environmentally friendly and reliable. Lithium-ion batteries can be cycled more than a thousand times, with a lifespan of 3-5 years, no memory effect, and no need for frequent replacement.

The lithium-ion battery pack has an intelligent BMS lithium battery management and protection system, which can effectively automatically cut off the main circuit for failures such as low battery power, short circuit, overcharge, and high temperature, and can feed back data to the APP to let users know in real time Battery usage, smarter forklift lithium battery system and high alarm, these are functions that traditional lead-acid batteries do not have.

It can be charged quickly and requires less maintenance. For industries with special needs, such as warehousing and logistics, airport freight, etc., lithium batteries can be charged in "fast charging mode". Within 1-2 hours, the battery can be fully charged to keep the vehicle fully charged. Load, uninterrupted work; at the same time, after the lithium battery is self-packed, there is no need for any special water filling, regular discharge, etc., which can greatly reduce the follow-up.

Lithium batteries have so many benefits, but the overall cost and subsequent replacement costs may exceed lead-acid batteries! Therefore, consumers can make comprehensive choices based on long-term operating costs when choosing.
