Forklift batteries


 Forklift batteries serve two functions, to start and power the vehicle, and to add counterweight. They must be able to provide power, dependability, and longevity throughout numerous deep cycles. Lead-Acid batteries are the preferred battery type for Forklifts because they are both practical and economical.

MORE INFORMATION

Industrial flooded batteries are quite large and heavy. Although they vary in size, they can often weigh up to 4,000lbs or more. The basic architecture of an industrial steel case battery consists of small, self-contained flooded battery cells connected by battery bars (which link the individual cells in a circuit, housed within a steel battery case).
