Video: Why Battery Monitoring Saves Money & Optimizes Performance

Improper care of forklift batteries is a common, costly mistake. Batteries are an investment, one that fuels your fleet, so if they are neglected it will impact your bottom line. In fact, after forklifts, batteries are the most expensive asset in your warehouse.

While most new batteries have a lifespan of approximately 1,500 cycles — lasting up to five years — reaching that projected number of cycles with each battery isn’t guaranteed. Getting the most ROI from each battery you buy requires proper charging, cleaning, and maintenance.

Why Invest in Battery Monitoring?

Battery monitoring technology is an investment that pays off because it easily lets you drive efficiency by monitoring your batteries, the charging habits, and the rotations of equipment – all of which saves money. According to SupplyChain 24/7, battery monitoring and regular scheduled maintenance can help a business avoid major pain-points caused by unexpected equipment issues and it can reduce the costs of doing business.
