Forklift and Material Handling

OE customers in fields such as Material Handling, Aerial Work Platform, and Floor Machines work with us to improve the performance and reliability of their equipment. Our solutions are plug and play, reducing time to market and the need to modify designs.

The PB-48-75 is an industrial-grade battery pack designed as a direct replacement for lead acid batteries used in forklift and automated-guided vehicle (AGV) applications. The lithium battery outperforms the conventional lead acid battery in size, weight, cycle life, and energy density, and power output. All that, at a lower operating cost and cost per cycle. Here is an example of how our lithium battery compares with lead acid.

Lithium Power can design-in existing battery compartment dimensions while meeting or exceeding the application’s energy demands. With the unique ability to connect batteries in parallel for both charging and discharging, our modular designs allow for scalability as well as ease in transportation and maintenance.
