How to choose batteries for electric forklifts?

Electric forklifts are important logistics equipment commonly used in fields such as logistics and manufacturing. Battery is an important component of electric forklifts, which directly affects the performance and service life of the vehicle. Therefore, it is particularly important to choose a suitable battery for electric transport vehicles.

In the electric forklift industry, batteries are the most important condition to ensure the driving of the entire vehicle. Therefore, there are generally two types of batteries commonly used in the electric forklift market, one is lithium batteries and the other is lead-acid batteries. These two types are commonly used in electric forklifts. Currently, we use lithium batteries on the market. What are the advantages of lithium batteries and lead-acid batteries? The advantage of lithium-ion batteries is that they provide a constant high power supply that does not decrease with battery discharge. Regardless of the State of Charge (SOC) level, the forklift will operate at the same performance. In daily material handling activities, electric forklifts powered by lithium-ion batteries typically require approximately one hour of charging per shift to operate continuously. Charging can be done at any time and at any convenient time. The intelligent built-in BMS will alert the driver when the charging level is low. Lead acid batteries typically require 7-10 hours of uninterrupted charging, depending on the charger. For shift operation, a battery replacement system is the only possible solution, which requires investment, space, and frequent battery replacement is laborious. If these costs are added up in the long term, lithium-ion batteries for forklifts are a very good investment.

Lithium batteries have charging memory, and the charging memory characteristics of electric forklifts allow the battery to be charged randomly and intermittently without affecting its lifespan. Users can efficiently use their work and rest time to replenish their battery, making it convenient for them to coordinate their work. The manufacturer of electric transport vehicles stated that the lifespan of lithium batteries is also very long. Lead acid batteries have an average cycle lifespan of 1200 times (approximately 6000 hours of operation), while lithium iron phosphate batteries have a cycle lifespan of over 4000 times (approximately 24000 hours of operation). In practical use, lithium iron phosphate batteries still have a capacity of over 65% after more than 4000 uses, while lead-acid batteries have a capacity of less than 50% after 1200 uses.

The importance of lithium batteries for electric forklifts determines their stability and durability at work. The emergence of lithium battery forklifts is a trend, and the rapid development of the logistics industry requires a forklift with short charging time, long usage time, stable performance, ability to withstand high-intensity work, and high degree of automation and intelligence. The emergence of lithium batteries has added a bright spot to the development of the forklift industry.
