Lithium battery forklift is designed to solve the problem that conventional forklift causes, and bring optimisation of usage. It introduces significant benefits, if switched over.

The benefits includes:

1. Environment friendly, No harmful emission;
2. The lithium-iron-phosphate battery does not cause any heavy metal pollution, because it comes with no harmful materials;

Comparing to conventional Lead-Acid battery forklifts:

1. No water refilling required,
2. No shift batteries, gantry cranes or staff required to change batteries out
3. No dedicated ventilated charging area required
4. Standard charge in 3 hours, allows opportunity charging anytime, a 20-min quick charge will give you 1.0 hour; or our 2-hour fast charger is an option
5. The battery is approx. 30% more efficient than lead-acid battery. The 80V270Ah lasts up to 10 hours and 80V540Ah up to 20 hours operating time for a 2.5 tonne forklift
6. No eye wash station required for safety, because there is no hazardous acid liquid;
7. Expected life of 4000 full charge cycles while lead-acid battery can only provide 1200 charging life cycles

Comparing to gas forklifts:

1. No labour required for replacing gas bottle;
2. Saving of $15-$18.00 per LPG tank per shift on fuel bills;
3. It is cheaper to maintain, the service cost if about half of that for a gas/diesel forklift, much less moving parts;
