Forklift Battery Charging and Safe Installation
Lift truck batteries are quite big and are very pricey pieces of machines. They weigh thousands of pounds. The job of installing and charging these batteries is something which must be really planned out ahead of time in order to make sure that these procedures could be completed properly and safely. Maintaining a sound charging method and proper handling could really increase the battery's standard life span.
It is vital not to connect the battery to the charger until it is at 20 percent capacity or less. By charging the battery when it is more than 20%, the battery's lifespan could actually be shortened. On about every 5th charge cycle, the charger has to be set on the equalize or weekend setting, depending on which type of charger you are utilizing.
The cycle of charging must not get interrupted. You must avoid using the battery for some hours once the charge cycle is complete. By practicing these methods, you will be able to help ensure that you get the maximum battery performance available.
Make certain the charger is turned off before hooking up the battery to the charger. You then can connect the charger to the battery. This is a common mistake that could accidentally cause damage to both the forklift and the charger. Additionally, it is very essential 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 significantly and may even prevent the charger from being able to activate. If the battery charger reads that there is no battery activity, it will not start the charge cycle. If this situation occurs, a technician must be called to be able to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to begin.
