Before the widespread application of power lithium-ion batteries, lead-acid batteries had always been the main source of power for industrial vehicles, especially electric forklifts. With the rapid development of new energy battery technology and the decreasing cost of power lithium-ion batteries, the sales and ownership of electric forklifts continue to increase, and the market for the batteries they are equipped with is quietly changing. With the market orientation of national policy inclination, energy conservation, and environmental protection, and the continuous strengthening of environmental awareness, it is an inevitable trend for lithium batteries to gradually replace lead-acid in the next 3-5 years.

Nowadays, "lithium batteries" have completely integrated into our lives, and the commonly used mobile phones, electric vehicles, and power banks all use lithium batteries. Due to different applications, the requirements for lithium batteries vary greatly, resulting in many types of lithium batteries. Performance, durability, lifecycle time, and cost all depend on which battery chemistry and battery type is used. Generally speaking, forklift manufacturers will customize or develop corresponding lithium batteries to provide maximum safety and integration, while maintaining the overall quality and reliability of the forklift.


What are the benefits of choosing lithium batteries for electric forklifts?
Longer service life

Lithium batteries for forklifts have a long service life. With the further development of lithium-ion battery technology, the lifespan of the battery can reach about 3000 capacity cycles, which has great advantages compared to traditional lead-acid batteries with about 1000 charging cycles. In most applications, the same lifespan of a lithium-ion battery is equivalent to three to four lead-acid batteries. In addition, the service life of traditional lead-acid batteries will also be affected by later maintenance, such as leakage, improper cleaning and charging, or balanced lead-acid batteries, which will greatly reduce their lifespan.

More convenient maintenance

No maintenance is a major advantage of lithium-ion batteries, which can reduce labor costs and improve productivity. Traditional lead-acid batteries require weekly maintenance to maintain their health. Lead acid batteries have a high labor intensity, and if not properly maintained, their lifespan can be greatly shortened. Lithium ion forklift batteries, on the other hand, do not require any daily maintenance except for inspecting cables and connectors and wiping dust.


Three fast charging is more convenient

One of the main advantages of lithium-ion batteries is that they are designed with special consideration for ease of use, especially in fast charging. Whenever possible, they can simply plug in the power, even if it's only a few minutes. It can provide longer charging capacity, and even if it cannot be fully charged, it can be stopped and recharged during the idle period after completing the task.

Better safety

Lithium ion batteries for forklifts require less maintenance and handling, making them a safer choice. The battery is completely sealed and its normal state is very stable. So there are no issues of corrosion, vulcanization, acid overflow or pollution, which is also beneficial for the environment. The BMS system can communicate with forklifts and send information about battery status, such as discharge levels, which are visible on standard forklift displays. If any problems occur, an error code will be displayed, and in the worst-case scenario, the battery will automatically shut down the forklift in a safe way. To provide maximum security, performance, and reliability.

Five higher efficiency and lower cost

Lithium ion forklifts can charge quickly, and the 1-3 hour fast charging mode is suitable for multi shift operations. Instant charging and use eliminates the time and safety risks of battery replacement, providing stronger power. Another advantage of lithium-ion batteries is that they provide a constant high power supply that does not decrease with battery discharge, and the power output can completely replace internal combustion forklifts. Lead acid batteries usually require 7-10 hours of charging without interruption, which naturally results in lower work efficiency compared to lithium batteries. In addition to maintenance time, labor, and replacement costs, these costs are calculated in the long run. Choosing lithium-ion batteries for electric forklifts is indeed a very good investment.
