Forklift Battery Charging and Safe Installation
Lift truck batteries are fairly big and are really pricey pieces of equipment. They weigh thousands of pounds. The job of charging and installation of these batteries is something which will need to be really planned out in advanced so as to make sure that these procedures could be completed safely and correctly. Maintaining a sound charging method and proper handling could really increase the battery's standard life span.

Standard Charging
It is suggested that the battery is not connected to the charger until it is at or lower than 20% capacity. By charging the battery when it is higher than 20 percent, the battery's lifespan could actually be shortened. On around every 5th charge cycle, the charger should be set on the weekend or equalize setting, depending on what kind of charger you are utilizing.

The charging cycle must never be interrupted. As soon as the charge cycle is complete, you must avoid using the battery for a few hours. By practicing these methods, 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 can 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.

Do not ever allow the battery to deep discharge or completely discharge. This will shorten the battery life greatly and could even prevent the charger from being able to activate. If the battery charger reads that there is no battery activity, it will not start the charge cycle. If this situation happens, a technician would need to be called to be able to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to begin.
