Considering making the switch to lithium for your forklift fleet? Here at Papé Material Handling, we’re here to help you maximize the efficiency of your fleet and operation. Did you know that lithium batteries last twice as long as lead-acid and gel batteries? In this edition of the Papé Material Handling blog, let’s take a look at the benefits of transitioning to lithium batteries.
Lithium batteries require less energy, so you’ll save up to 15% in energy costs when you switch to lithium batteries from traditional led-acid or gel batteries.
Bye Bye Maintenance
Lithium batteries do not require maintenance, so you’ll save on time and resources when making the switch to this longer lasting modern alternative.
With energy savings combined with less frequent replacements, lithium batteries can reduce operational costs by 50% over time. Lithium batteries last twice as long as their traditional lead-acid and gel counterparts. Longer battery lifetimes paired with lower electricity usage leads to savings on utilities and replacement batteries.
Goodbye Battery Rooms
Lithium batteries are easily charged on the lift truck. That means you don’t need to build and maintain expensive and space-consuming battery rooms. Save on space and time, and use your warehouse space for other key operational and storage needs! Plus, this makes for safer working environments.
Lithium batteries are designed to keep machinery charged longer. This is good for your fleet–and good for the environment. You’ll enjoy less charging time and less frequent need to replace batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer than standard led-acid and gel batteries, but once a lithium battery does finally need to be replaced, we’ve got you covered. That’s right; Papé will recycle, re-use, or dispose of lithium batteries in full compliance with the laws and environmental standards.
