Battery Life – How long do forklift batteries last?
Industrial batteries manufactured today are usually warranted to deliver a total of 1,500 cycles. A cycle is normally considered to be one discharge and one recharge. At a frequency of one cycle per day, a five year life is expected. Many factors can alter the life achieved by the user. Battery life may increase if the user focuses on these areas:
- Proper watering
- Regular cleaning and neutralizing
- Maintaining batteries at a proper temperature
- Discharging to as near 80% of capacity as possible prior to recharging.
