Consider treating your industrial forklift battery is just like a small child.
Both require a lot of attention and if you don't give them what they need it, you’re in for a miserable time.
Like a child, a battery needs eight hours of play, eight hours to recharge (sleep) and eight hours to cool off.
If you let them play too long their tempers begin to heat up. Don’t give them enough energy and they get tired real fast and start acting up again. And don't forget to give them a good drink. But not too much, or they will spit up all over and that will be a real mess. And remember when it is time, no matter what, they have to be changed!
As the child grows older, that unlimited energy begins to dwindle. When he reaches his final years he finds it hard to last the whole day. Batteries are the same way. They begin to slow down as they reach their golden years. Going through an entire day becomes more difficult. Finally, when they can no longer keep up, they are retired.
To determine the health of your battery, here are a few points to consider:
So if your "child" isn't as lively as they used to be, giving them some special attention may help prolong their useful lives.
