Lithium Ion Forklift Battery

Although it may seem like lithium-ion batteries are a relative newcomer to the material handling world, they’ve actually been around for a few decades - and as the huge advantages to electric forklift and other electric material handling equipment becomes more apparent, it’s a good time for owners and decision makers to invest in this technology. At Madland Toyota-Lift, we’ve got the skinny on why you should take a deeper look at lithium-ion batteries for your material handling fleet, including superior options for charging, extending the life of your equipment and - bonus - helping the environment. See below to find out how lithium-ion batteries can recharge your operations.


Excellent ROI

Lithium-ion batteries are built to save you money on maintenance, electricity, labor and infrastructure in your material handling operations. This technology allows electric-powered forklifts and other material handling equipment to operate for more than twice the amount of time than traditional lead-acid batteries before preventative maintenance is due.

Superior Charging With Lithium-Ion Batteries

For those running 24/7 material handling operations or those who need their electric forklifts to charge up quickly, lithium-ion batteries can be charged much faster than traditional batteries, can be charged anytime with no cool-down period and eliminate the need for battery swapping. Lithium-ion batteries last more than two times longer than lead-acid batteries.


Extended Equipment Life

Besides the fact that lithium-ion batteries are virtually maintenance free, using lithium-ion batteries in electrically-powered material handling equipment and forklifts has a beneficial impact on the life of the equipment itself. Lithium-ion batteries use a constant, non-diminishing charge and don’t require specialized care instructions for longer life.


Expanded Environmental Benefits

Are you interested in helping your material handling interest become a more environmentally-friendly operation? If so, you should know that lead-acid batteries are more harmful to the air quality in your warehouse space than lithium-ion batteries. Traditional lead-acid batteries contribute more than 50 percent of carbon monoxide over their lifespan than lithium-ion batteries.


Outstanding Uniform Operation

A large part of measuring the efficiency of your material handling warehouse operations can be calculated by comparing uptime to downtime. Lithium-ion batteries for your forklifts always maintain a consistent voltage and one lithium-ion battery will last as long as two to three lead-acid batteries to get the same work done.


Cleaner, More Organized Work Area

Once your material handling fleet is operating on lithium-ion battery power, you can decide how best to utilize that space that used to house the battery room. Without the fumes and spills inherent in lead-acid batteries, your operators will be free of handling recharging drudgery tasks and can focus on more efficient warehouse operations.
