How do you know which battery technology is the best? There are no simple answers, but UniCarriers has the tools to analyse your operation and guide you in the right direction. Generally, the higher the utilisation of your fleet, the quicker return on investment you will get with Li-ION batteries, especially in multi-shift operations.
But there are several other reasons to choose Li-ION technology. You can start using your existing charging room for other purposes, and there is no need to invest in battery change equipment or special ventilation. On top of this, Li-ION batteries consume much less electrical power than traditional forklift batteries.
Once your operation is analysed, UniCarriers will provide you with an operational profile and an ROI calculation. This makes it easy to make the right decision.
Li-ION batteries from UniCarriers are specifically designed to provide maximum performance and safety. Li-ION batteries offer higher and sustained voltage levels, resulting in faster driving and lifting performance compared to traditional lead-acid batteries, especially noticeable at lower battery charge levels. The specially-developed communication between battery and truck ensures safe operation, and makes sure the truck will automatically shut down if required.
Charging the Li-ION batteries are easy. Connect the charger and the truck will automatically shut down and charging begins.
With a fast charging rate of 1C the battery will be fully charged in one hour. Position your chargers where you want, preferably nearby the coffee machine and the truck will always be ready to go with a charged battery.

Depending on your utilization and charging possibilities the Operational Profile will be an important tool to optimize batteries and charger for your truck fleet. UniCarriers offer a range of Li-ION battery capacities and complementary chargers to fit most various requirements.
As we continue to develop our Li-ION technology, more and more of our forklifts will become available with Li-ION batteries. Here's the machines which are currently available to order with the new battery options.
With the special UniCarriers easy access charge arm, charging will be very easy.
Any UniCarriers truck with a Li-ION battery can be charged with a charger specified to the same or higher voltage. The battery will automatically tell the charger to use the correct voltage.
Is Li-ION the best battery solution for your business? With basically no maintenance and significantly reduced energy consumption, these batteries can make a difference in almost any materials handling operation, but it can be hard to understand the impact.
That's where UniCarriers can help. By analysing your fleet, studying how the trucks are used, measuring your energy consumption and examining your current charging patterns, we can help predict the time, energy and money that can be saved by switching to Li-ION.
