Not all batteries are made equal. Did you know every battery type serves a specific functionality? The two main battery types are stationary batteries and “starting” batteries. It is very important that you find the correct battery for your particular application, as the wrong choice can affect both the battery’s efficiency as well as its lifespan.
Fork trucks play an often invisible, but critical role in today’s e-commerce driven economy. However, these workhorses are only as capable as the batteries that power them, and those batteries can be something of an enigma for the distribution center manager and the material handler alike.
Regular preventative maintenance, such as capturing battery temperatures, can spot problematic batteries before they fail. Monitoring this factor along with monitoring charger functionality can reduce the potential for thermal runaway or a catastrophic system failure.
