Why choose lithium-ion batteries for Hyster forklifts?

  • Integrated lithium-ion batteries are capable of faster charging than traditional lead-acid batteries, and no battery exchange is required, helping support higher uptime.
  • A single lithium-ion battery can replace multiple lead-acid batteries, freeing up charging space
  • Lithium-ion forklift batteries enableopportunity charging during breaks to maximise handling time over two or three shifts, and reduce overall costs
  • There are no gaseous emissions or risk of acid spillage so are particularly well-suited to operations where hygiene is a priority, such as food, beverage, and pharmaceutical production
