It is very much the debate of our time. Diesel or Li-ion battery power.
When it comes to the cars we drive, it certainly seems like the batteries have won, with fossil fuel cars being banned in the UK from 2040 if the government meets its target. However what if we are looking at warehouse trucks and material handling equipment for the retail, manufacturing, and distribution industry?
Regardless of whether you’re thinking about new reach trucks, electric forklifts, or vertical order pickers, it’s important to consider all of the elements when looking at diesel vs Li-ion batteries, from day-to-day running costs to operating environment and maintenance. So, let’s begin.
In the material handling industry, productivity and efficiency are two important keys to success. There are only so many hours in the day, so whenever a company can find a way to do more in less time, they gain a competitive advantage. For some operations, especially food processing, 3PL, and other multi-shift applications, lithium-ion forklift batteries provide that extra edge by reducing labor costs and improving productivity.
BSLBATT Lithium Forklift Battery (www.lithiumforkliftbattery.com), a China NO 1 in exporting LiFePO4 forklift battery for the replacement SLA battery market, has recently unveiled its new BSL Series Lithium Material Handling Battery, optimized for the challenges of the modern warehouse environment. It also introduced its new cloud-based fleet management software, GPRS+GPS, which optimizes fleet uptime, maximizes efficiency, and reduces the total cost of ownership.
BSLBATT’s new Lithium Material Handling Battery is specially designed to minimize the total cost of ownership in material handling applications. Switching from a lead battery to the Material Handling Battery may yield savings of up to 1.125 million euros over the battery’s lifetime for an average-sized fleet of 25 forklifts. Retrofitting communicator allows all information to be presented via the truck’s onboard display without any additional external instruments. The battery offers exceptional electrical performance and advanced safety features.
BSLBATT’s new through the cloud system on the batteries, GPRS, GPS function, users are able to see key parameters such as battery location, status, BMS information, discharge current, charge current, and charge status in real-time. Simple, traffic-light-style reports enable energy consumption and productivity to be optimized. The software also notifies users immediately of any issues in the fleet using state-of-health information, allowing corrective action to be taken before uptime is affected. Preventative maintenance can also be scheduled automatically.
BSLBATT has a wide range of technologies and expertise to help you embrace the path ahead in intralogistics. This includes market-leading battery technologies, chargers, charging algorithms, battery management systems, consulting, and support. BSLBATT’s chargers enable both fast and opportunity charging and are specially optimized to work with GPRS, GPS, and BSLBATT’s range of material handling batteries.
