There is more to battery and charger care than you might originally think
Proper battery and charger maintenance means productivity and smoother operations as there is no forklift downtime.
Cells that are weak and go undetected will cause undue stress to the battery, causing more frequent charges and a shorter overall battery life.
Corrosion on a battery builds heat that lowers battery run time and its lifespan. There may also be other serious safety hazards.
Bad cables give you false voltage, maintenance code and amp readings, which will keep you from properly addressing diagnostic problems.
Charging a battery incorrectly increases the chances of a short battery life.
