In order to create an effective working environment, energy efficiency and alternative energy sources have emerged as top priorities in the South African warehouse industry. CES Forklift & Liugong has invested in the development of energy-efficient forklift batteries that will continue to operate your electric 3-wheel or 4-wheel forklifts even during load-shedding.
Why Lithium-ion Forklift Batteries
Lithium ion forklift batteries are quickly replacing lead acid batteries in South African warehouses as electric forklifts become the norm. As a result, lithium ion forklift batteries offer safer and more efficient industrial battery solutions for your warehouse applications.
Since lithium ion batteries offer significantly more advantages for productivity, such as:
Opportunity charge time: faster
Liugong’s lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in less than two hours and go from 0% to 50% in just over 30 minutes.Additionally, forklift drivers can take advantage of the opportunity charging benefits to charge the forklift battery during breaks or just before load-shedding without sacrificing battery life because they do not require a cool-down period.You can work well past any level of load-shedding because a charge can last up to eight hours.
Lead-acid batteries have a shorter lifespan than lithium-ion forklift batteries.Because our Lithium ion batteries have a lifespan that is comparable to that of our forklifts, you won’t need to buy multiple sets of batteries to keep your forklifts running.
Increased energy densities:
The battery can store more energy in a smaller space thanks to the use of lithium salt as an electrolyte and the most energy-dense chemistry currently available.As a result, Lithium-ion batteries are able to withstand a greater number of load cycles, lose less energy during charging cycles, and maintain a constant maximum power level. Additionally, the electronic controllers of these batteries guarantee reliability and safety.
Lithium ion batteries improve voltage delivery stability at any charge level and produce less heat.Because the cylindrical cells are designed to not touch, a safety hazard in one cell will not directly affect adjacent cells.The cells are also protected from damage by being harder to penetrate and generally harder to damage because of their cylinder shape.They are safe to use because of this, as well as other ergonomic designs and chargers that are simple to use.
System for Managing Batteries:
A battery system is made up of a number of modules, or multiple cells connected in series.Each module has a safety system, and the entire battery system has a superior BMS that controls all battery activity, whether it’s charging or charging from an outlet.You can optimize your energy consumption by monitoring battery usage with this system, which ensures that you are always aware of how well your battery is performing.
