Forklift Battery Charging and Safe Installation
Forklift batteries are fairly large and are extremely expensive pieces of equipment. They weigh thousands of pounds. The job of charging and installation of these batteries is something which should be planned out in advanced so as to make sure that these methods could be completed safely and correctly. Maintaining proper handling and a sound charging procedure could majorly 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 percent capacity. By charging the battery when it is more than 20%, the lifespan of the battery could really be shortened. On roughly each 5th charge cycle, the charger needs to be set on the weekend or equalize setting, depending on which model of charger you are utilizing.

The charging cycle must never be interrupted. Once the charge cycle is complete, you must avoid utilizing the battery for a few hours. By practicing these procedures, you could help ensure that you get the maximum battery performance available.

Charger Maintenance
Make sure the charger is turned off prior to hooking up the battery to the charger. You then could connect the charger to the battery. This is a common mistake which could inadvertently cause damage to both the forklift and the charger. It is also really vital that the amperage of the battery should match that of the charger.

The battery must never be allowed to to deep discharge or to completely discharge. This will ultimately shorten the lift of the battery and may even prevent the charger from being able to activate. If the battery charger reads that there is no activity in the battery, it will not start the charge cycle. If this situation happens, a technician would need to be called in order to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to start.
