Lead Acid Battery vs. Lithium-Ion Battery

Let’s take a closer look at some of the major advantages of Electric Pallet Jacks with state-of-the-art lithium battery technology.

Dramatic cost savings:

Because lithium ion batteries last so much longer than traditional lead acid batteries, the cost savings begin to add up quickly and end up being substantial over the much longer life span of this game-changing pallet jack power source.

Other factors that contribute to a more cost-efficient warehouse operation include:

  • Far less money spent on energy for charging batteries
  • Less time and labor expended by workers swapping out lead acid batteries
  • Less time and labor spent maintaining and watering lead acid batteries
  • Less energy wasted (a lead acid battery burns off 45-50% of its energy in heat, while a lithium battery loses only 10-15%)

Worker safety:

Hydrogen fumes and “acid splash” are a health and safety concern for workers maintaining lead acid batteries. Risks include sulfuric acid contacting their clothing, skin or eyes. Though not always adhered to, OSHA Guidelines call for nearby eyewash stations and for workers to wear personal protective gear (goggles, rubber or neoprene gloves and aprons). Such potential health and safety hazards are eliminated when using lithium batteries.

No battery rooms required:

Due to the space needed for charging and the risk of spills and fumes, most companies that run multiple electric pallet jacks powered by lead acid batteries handle the time-consuming recharging tasks by dedicating some of their valuable warehouse space to a separate, well-ventilated battery room.

Opportunity charging:

So-called “opportunity charging” (or charging pallet jack batteries when opportunities arise; for example, during breaks or in between tasks) is one of the great advantages of lithium batteries. However, the same practice will significantly shorten the life of a lead acid battery
