-- Helmar Parts is proud to retail PBM Battery chargers as their exclusive dealer in North America. These chargers have a smart design, connecting to the battery and focusing on providing the fullest charge and maintaining the long lifespan. It communicates to determine how much charge is required for a session -as not to give too much and cause premature cell failure.
Battery-powered forklifts may use lead-acid, while others use lithium-ion. Lead-acid batteries require a small level of maintenance regarding fluid balance, deep cycle charging, and lead sulfate buildup. They are cost-effective and can last for a long time, depending on the care that they receive. Without proper care, they can freeze up or overheat, necessitating replacement.
"PBM is known for being reliable in the field of lead-acid battery chargers," a spokesperson for Helmar Parts said. "Having a smart option makes it less likely that a forklift will die in the middle of operations and require a sudden replacement owing to premature cell failure and overcharging. Many operators favor lead-acid batteries because of the environments in which they use forklifts."
Indeed, lead-acid remains one of the more popular options for powering forklifts, pallet jacks and lift trucks. They have a smaller startup cost and consistent performance with the right care.
