Forklift Battery Safe Installation and Charging
Forklift batteries are quite big and are really costly pieces of equipment. They weigh thousands of pounds. The task of charging and installing these batteries is something which must be really planned out in advanced in order to make certain that these methods can be completed correctly and safely. Maintaining correct handling and a sound charging procedure could really increase the battery's usual life span.

Standard Charging
It is suggested that the battery is not connected to the charger until it is at or lower than 20% capacity. By charging the battery when it is more than 20 percent, the battery's lifespan can really be shortened. On about every 5th charge cycle, the charger should be set on the equalize or weekend setting, depending on which kind of charger you are utilizing.

The charging cycle must never be interrupted. As soon as the charge cycle is done, you must avoid utilizing the battery for a few hours. By practicing these procedures, you can help ensure that you get the maximum battery performance available.

Charger Maintenance
Be certain to have the charger turned off when 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 which could inadvertently cause damage to both the forklift and the charger. Additionally, it is really vital that the battery amperage should match that of the charger.

The battery should never be allowed to completely discharge or deep discharge. This would ultimately shorten the lift of the battery 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 should be called in order to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to start.
