Consider the Fast Charge Option
There is an old rule of thumb regarding recharging forklift batteries. It goes something like: utilize a battery for 8 hours, charge it for 8 hours and then lastly, let it cool for 8 hours. This formula has changed for a lot of work applications that run more than one 8 hour shift. The fast charging choice has become a really common alternative to conventional charging and ever since its development; lots of businesses have opted to make the switch.

What Are the Benefits of Fast Charging?

Less Charging Time
It could take a typical charger to charge a battery from 20% charged to 100% charged in around 8 hours. Fast charging could now accomplish this same charging in approximately an hour to an hour and a half! A lot of companies utilize scheduled lunch and break times to complete this vital job.

Easier Refills
Frequently, fast charge batteries also need a single-point watering system. This system means that users do not require removing the battery from the lift truck in order to water it.

Temperature-Sensitive Design
There is a thermistor placed close to the center cell on every new fast charge battery that helps it to monitor temperature. The charge rate is reduced and could sometimes stop once the temperatures get to a particular level. This is key so that the battery does not overheat. Unfortunately, this method can result in an undercharged battery. There are some particular fast charge brands of batteries which utilize extra thick posts, copper inserts and inter-cell connectors in order to increase conductivity and reduce heat generation due to the higher current. These features help to allow the battery to accept a higher charge rate for a longer time period.

The overall productivity of these machinery has been greatly better ever since the development of the fast charge battery system. In the past, businesses used to require more than one equipment when they were operating around the clock; nowadays they could use one lift truck twice as much in a day and save a lot of money by using the fast charging batteries.
