Forklift Battery Safe Installation and Charging
Batteries utilized in forklifts are costly pieces of equipment that are pretty large weighing many pounds. The task of installing and charging these batteries is something which must be really planned out in advanced so as to make certain that these procedures could be completed safely and properly. Maintaining a sound charging procedure and correct handling can majorly increase the battery's standard life span.

Standard Charging
It is important not to connect the battery to the charger until it is at 20 percent capacity or less. By charging the battery when it is more than 20 percent, the battery's lifespan could really be shortened. On roughly each 5th charge cycle, the charger should be set on the weekend or equalize setting, depending on which model of charger you are utilizing.

The cycle of charging should not get interrupted. You must avoid using the battery for some hours when the charge cycle is complete. By practicing these procedures, you can help make sure that you get the maximum battery performance available.

Charger Maintenance
Make sure the charger is turned off before hooking up the battery to the charger. You then can connect the charger to the battery. This is a common mistake that can inadvertently cause damage to both the charger and the forklift. What's more, it is very important that the battery amperage must match that of the charger.

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