In the industrial sector, forklifts are important because they make it possible to carry and transport heavy objects quickly and effectively. A forklift, however, is only as good as its battery, which serves as the machine's heart. It's important to have a dependable power source that can keep up with the demands of the job given the rising demand for productivity and efficiency. Industrial Batteries Australia (IBA) Forklift battery chargers are useful in this situation.
Forklift battery chargers are essential components for any forklift that runs on industrial batteries. These chargers provide a reliable and efficient way of recharging your batteries, ensuring that your forklift is always ready for the next job.
Here are some of the benefits of using Forklift battery chargers for your forklift:
Faster Charging Times: Time is of the essence in the industrial sector, and downtime can be costly. IBA supply a specialised charger range that can charge your forklift batteries faster than traditional chargers, reducing the time it takes to get your forklift back up and running, while safely providing increased daily Battery use for your Electric Forklift where required. This means less downtime and increased productivity.
Increased Battery Life: Our Forklift Battery Chargers are designed to extend the life of your forklift batteries. By charging your batteries at a steady rate and maintaining the correct voltage, these chargers can help prevent damage to your batteries and increase their overall lifespan.
Reduced Energy Costs: Our Smart Battery Charger range requires less energy to charge your Batteries than conventional chargers since they are more energy-efficient. This equates to cheaper energy bills and lower long-term costs.
Improved Safety: our Battery Chargers are designed with safety in mind. They have built-in safety features that prevent overcharging and overheating, which can irreversibly damage your batteries and potentially pose a safety risk. By using our range of battery chargers, you can ensure that your forklift is operating safely and efficiently.
Any Electric forklift that is powered by a Lead Acid Forklift Battery needs to have a suitable Battery Charger in order to operate correctly. The standard rule of thumb is to supply a Charger that has a start charge rate of 1/8th or 15% of the overall AH Capacity (for example an 48v / 800ah Battery - 48v / 100amp Charger). If the Charger start rate is lower than this standard, this is fine, but please allow for longer required time to charge the Battery. It is important that the start rate of Charge is not above 20% of the Forklift Batteries overall capacity when used with a standard conventional Charger. This is to ensure that the internal heat inherently built up as part of the Battery charge process is controlled, overcharging the Battery can result in diminishing the life of the Battery over time.
