How to choose an Electric forklift battery

Electric forklifts are powered by batteries, and there are two primary types of batteries available.

  • Lead-acid batteries
  • Lithium batteries

Lead-Acid Batteries

Lead-acid batteries can be further divided into two categories:

  1. Maintenance-Free Lead-Acid Batteries:

These batteries do not require frequent checks on the liquid level and there is no maintenance fee. They are suitable for high efficiency usage.

  1. High-Power Tubular Lead-Acid Batteries (Liquid Traction Lead Acid Battery):

The Lead-Acid Water Battery is a type of battery that requires regular maintenance to function properly. The battery fluid needs to be checked regularly and refilled if necessary, but notice to be taken not to overfill it. Overfilling can cause overflow and corrosion of other parts during charging. Proper maintenance of the battery is crucial for its performance and longevity, as the water level in the electrolyte decreases over time due to electrolysis and evaporation. To prevent damage or shorten the battery’s lifespan, distilled water should be added promptly to maintain the proper electrolyte level, and battery’s performance and extend its lifespan.

Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries charge quickly but the cost of replacement is high.


It is recommended that you choose maintenance-free lead-acid batteries. There is no maintenance fee, and the battery replacement cost is not high. It is environmentally friendly, energy-saving, and cost-effective, and it is more suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises.
