Get the most out of your forklift battery
When you are charging a forklift battery, there are a few things you should and shouldn’t do. This will ensure the battery life is as long as it is supposed to be and you get the most out of your forklift.
- Look out for the power level of the battery
- Manage forklift usage
- Make sure to choose a well-ventilated area when changing your battery
- Neglect the battery
- Interrupt a charge halfway through
- Leave the drained battery uncharged for a long time
There are other important factors you should pay attention to when taking care of your battery. It is important to keep an eye out for the water level in a battery. When the water level is low, the battery plate can be exposed to the air and possibly cause permanent damage. You should also schedule regular maintenance on your lifts to extend the life of your battery.
