Welch Equipment offers forklift battery options for all categories of lift trucks and for nearly all manufacturers. We also offer state-of-the-art chargers and all types of battery handling equipment to keep your operation running smoothly.
Lead Acid Batteries
Lead acid batteries are still the standard in most material handling operations. While innovations like valve regulation have greatly improved safety and battery life, these batteries function in much the same way they have for decades. Although lead acid batteries possess a bit lower energy density than higher tech options, they have the ability to maintain a steady voltage as they run down, they can function over a wide range of temperatures and they can be reliably depleted and recharged over hundreds of cycles.
Lithium Ion Batteries
Lithium-ion batteries are quite a bit more expensive than standard lead acid, but for certain applications they are the perfect solution. They can withstand very cold temperatures and are ideal for cold storage operations. They are also perfect for multi-shift operations because they charge up to eight times faster and are 30% more energy efficient than lead acid.
Welch provides both new and used industrial battery chargers for all sorts of operations from single shift, light duty warehouses to around the clock, heavy use enterprises. Ask about our battery and charger rental and lease options.
