The Main Differences Between Lead-acid Battery and Lithium Battery For Electric Forklift


When choosing an Electric Forklift, the first and most important part you need to take it into consideration is the Battery. It not only has a big influence on the price, but also the performance.

Here I listed the main differences between this two kinds of battery for you to compare. We made this form for our client who is being troubled by battery choice.

We can clearly see that the continuous working time of Lead-acid battery is twice as long as Lithium`s, while it also requires twice recharging time. If you need the forklift to work for the whole day, lead-acid battery will be the best choice. Charge the battery in the night, tomorrow morning it will be ready to support 8hrs work.

The biggest advantage of lithium battery is that it has much longer life span, more environmentally friendly and nearly no maintenance required. But when you take the price into consideration, it`s hardly to say which one is better as the unit price of one lithium battery equals 3~5 lead-acid batteries. The higher price has chocked off the demand. However Leadacid batteries have existed since the late 19th century. As a mature technology, they have a low cost for their high performance, easily recycled and simple to charge. That`s why it is still widely used in the electric forklift.

And good news is that WINGS forklifts adopt Lead-acid & Lithium battery exchange system as an option, which means you can use either of those two kinds of battery without other refit. You may start to wondering how much it is. Well, it depends on the load capacities and models. But one thing for sure it is more economical.
