Forklift Battery Safe Installation and Charging
Batteries used in forklifts are expensive pieces of equipment that are quite large weighing many pounds. The job of charging and installation of these batteries is something that should be planned out ahead of time in order to make certain that these procedures are able to be done properly and safely. Maintaining correct handling and a sound charging method could really increase the battery's usual life span.
It is essential not to connect the battery to the charger until it is at 20% capacity or lower. By charging the battery when it is more than 20 percent, the battery's lifespan can really be shortened. On around every 5th charge cycle, the charger should be set on the weekend or equalize setting, depending on which model of charger you are using.
The cycle of charging should not get interrupted. You should avoid utilizing the battery for a few hours when the charge cycle is done. By practicing these methods, you could help ensure that you get the maximum battery performance available.
Be certain to have the charger turned off while in the process of hooking up the battery to the charger. Connect the charger to the battery and not the forklift. This is a common mistake that could accidentally cause damage to both the forklift and the charger. In addition, it is very vital that the battery amperage must match that of the charger.
Do not ever allow the battery to deep discharge or completely discharge. This will shorten the battery life greatly and can even prevent the charger from being able to activate. If the battery charger reads that there is no activity in the battery, it would not start the charge cycle. If this situation happens, a technician will need to be called in order to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to begin.
