Smart Fast Charger
- SUITABLE FOR:24/36/48/72/80 Volt Batteries
A specialised Smart Forklift Battery Charger that IBA have been supplying to the market for almost 10 years, with a heavy increase on standard charge output current designed for the Fast Charging of Forklift Batteries during Forklift usage shifts to greatly extend daily Electric Forklift run times and allow greater daily flexibility for Electric Forklift usage that is over and above a standard 8 hour usage shift. A standard Conventional Charger is designed for overnight Charging only, these Chargers can be used at any time of day. This package can include an optional closed loop Battery and Charger communication device, fitted to the Battery that communicates real time battery information to the charger to ensure precise Fast Charge supply and battery protection from the inherent stresses of Fast Charging. Designed for very high usage Electric Forklift applications, and the removal of Second shift Battery options for extended daily usage. These "Hybrid" (Transformer driven HF) Fast Chargers are designed and manufactured in Italy, and are an extremely robust and proven reliable charger option.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is fast charging?
Charging the battery during down periods throughout the day at a controlled and increased rate of charge. This keeps a high state of charge in your forklift battery perfect for multiple shifts operations and can potentially remove second shift battery requirements.
Each charge cycle effectively provides a controlled 'fast charge' to the battery to increase usable battery capacity, resulting in much longer battery run times.
Why should you use specilaised charger when Opportunity or Fast charging your Forklift Battery?
A Battery's life span is determined by the number of charge cycles that it can perform.
When a battery is on a charge, the greatest degree of deterioration occurs in the last 20%, or the gassing stage.
If a battery being opportunity charged is plugged into a standard charger (instead of a specialised Opportunity or Fast charger) throughout the day, and is not discharged more than 80%, a week's worth of wear will be experienced in one day.
This effectively turns a five year battery into a one-two year battery. This is where the terminology “Opportunity Charging” has derived from. A conventional or standard charger used for this type of charging will irreparably damage a battery.
