Forklift Battery Charging and Safe Installation
Forklift batteries are fairly large and are very costly pieces of machinery. They weigh thousands of pounds. The task of charging and installing these batteries is something that should be really planned out in advanced so as to make sure that these procedures are able to be completed correctly and safely. Maintaining correct handling and a sound charging procedure can really increase the regular lifespan of a battery.

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 more than 20 percent, the battery's lifespan could actually be shortened. On about every 5th charge cycle, the charger must be set on the weekend or equalize setting, depending on what type of charger you are using.

The cycle of charging should not get interrupted. You should avoid using the battery for some hours when the charge cycle is done. By practicing these procedures, you will be able to help ensure that you get the maximum battery performance available.

Charger Maintenance
Be sure to have the charger turned off when in the process of hooking up the battery to the charger. Connect the charger to the battery and not the forklift. This is a common mistake which can inadvertently cause damage to both the forklift and the charger. Moreover, it is very important that the amperage of the battery must match that of the charger.

The battery should never be allowed to to deep discharge or to completely discharge. This will ultimately shorten the lift of the battery and might even prevent the charger from being able to start. If the battery charger reads that there is no activity in the battery, it would not start the charge cycle. If this situation happens, a technician must be called to be able to re-set the charger prior to charge being able to start.
