Consider the Fast Charge Option
When it comes to recharging the forklift battery, there is an old rule of thumb that goes something like this: utilize the battery for a shift of about 8 hours, charge it for 8 hours and after that let it cool and rest for another 8 hours. This formula has changed for many work applications which run more than one 8 hour shift. The fast charging option has become a very common alternative to traditional charging and since its evolution; a lot of businesses have opted to make the switch.

What Are the Advantages of Fast Charging?

Less Charging Time
It may take a typical charger to charge a battery from 20% charged to 100% charged in approximately 8 hours. Fast charging could now accomplish this same charging in approximately an hour to an hour and 30 minutes! A lot of businesses utilize scheduled break and lunch times to complete this important task.

Easier Refills
Frequently, fast charge batteries also need a single-point watering system. This system means that users do not have to remove the battery from the lift truck to be able to water it.

Temperature-Sensitive Design
There is a thermistor placed near the center cell on every new fast charge battery which helps it to monitor temperature. The charge rate is reduced and may sometimes stop once the temperatures get to a particular level. This is important so that the battery does not overheat. Unfortunately, this method could lead to an undercharged battery. There are several particular fast charge battery brands which utilize inter-cell connectors, extra thick posts and copper inserts in order to decrease heat generation and increase conductivity because of the higher current. These features help to allow the battery to accept a higher charge rate for a longer period of time.

The overall productivity of these machinery has been greatly better ever since the development of the fast charge battery system. Before, businesses used to require more than one machine when they were operating around the clock; nowadays they can save much money and utilize one forklift twice as much in a day with by using the fast charging batteries.
