What is a smart charger?

A smart charger is able to diagnose the forklift battery, obtaining pertinent information for the charge. The Hawker Life Plus charger can determine the precise amount of recharge needed, regardless of voltage, AH capacity, age of the battery or state of discharge. So there is no chance of a mismatch between the charger and the battery as the charger. Other benefits of a “smart charger” include less heat generated and less watering needed. The Hawker Powertech™ is also a smart charger that will charge a wide range of AH capacity, as long as it is the same voltage. For other models, check with the manufacturer specifications.
