Mitsubishi forklifts are designed to be smooth, safe and easy to operate, making them suitable for safe, clean and productive lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Benefits of Li-ion forklifts include rapid recharging, zero maintenance, no dangerous acid spills or gas emissions, and long runtime.

Li-ion batteries naturally take charge faster than lead–acid batteries and can be ‘opportunity charged’ to less than full capacity. Lead–acid batteries, on the other hand, can succumb to negative sulfation effects if they are not charged fully or left in storage too long. Full charge for a lead–acid battery takes around 8 h, whereas a Li-ion battery will charge in 1–2 h, with no cooldown period required, and work for up to 20 h.

Lead–acid batteries also produce hydrogen gas when charging, meaning users have to be careful where they charge them. Li-ion batteries can be charged anywhere, as there is no gas emitted from the battery. This eliminates the need for a ventilated battery charging space and is especially advantageous for those working in the food and pharmaceutical industries, or anywhere a clean environment is of import.

Just one Li-ion battery is required per machine and it never needs to be removed, eliminating the risk of injury when changing batteries. Li-ion batteries don’t contain acid, which eliminates the risk of acid spills and the need for associated safety measures. They also don’t require water, making them maintenance-free.
