Why Lead Acid Battery Forklifts Are Not Going Away Soon
It might seem like the world is quickly moving away from lead acid batteries and increasingly becoming dependent on lithium-ion batteries for their forklift trucks. However, despite this traditional lead acid powered battery forklifts aren’t going anywhere soon. Dawsongroup material handling goes into a few reasons why.
One of the main advantages of lead acid batteries is their cost-effectiveness. They are significantly cheaper than lithium-ion batteries and can provide comparable performance, making them an attractive option for businesses that need to keep their operating costs low. Additionally, lead acid batteries have a longer lifespan than lithium-ion batteries, which means they can be used for longer before needing to be replaced.
Lead acid batteries are also known for their reliability. They have been used in forklifts for decades, and their performance and limitations are well understood. This means that maintenance and repair costs are usually lower than for lithium-ion batteries, which are a newer technology that is still evolving and the limits are still unknown.
