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:

  1. Proper watering
  2. Regular cleaning and neutralizing
  3. Maintaining batteries at a proper temperature
  4. Discharging to as near 80% of capacity as possible prior to recharging.
