Heavy Duty Battery Chargers

Heavy-duty forklift battery chargers are built with demanding applications in mind. They feature more robust transformers and more brutal build quality than many other products on the market, which enables them to function in situations where other devices couldn't.


 Operating engineers who frequently use forklifts and related commercial equipment will often turn to these devices when energizing vehicles that frequently get run down. Those who need chargers capable of withstanding elevated levels of mechanical stress may also want to invest in heavy-duty chargers due to their enhanced housings.


Reinforced Battery Charger Technology

The most notable thing about heavy-duty battery charger boxes is that their housings are far more durable than those found on consumer-grade models. While this might not be the most vital feature to operating engineers concerned about charging their equipment too weakly, it can help them withstand much more physical force than standard chargers ever could. Treating charging gear is always important, and no crew should put their kits through undo stress.


Nevertheless, these units should stand up to most environments quite well. They usually charge deep-cycle batteries with more force, meaning that charging times may be shorter once you switch to them. 


Electrical Chargers

In certain situations, they may also charge a battery cell much more thoroughly than otherwise. That's because of the working principle behind how these devices operate. Electrical chargers are direct current power supplies that pump out a series of electrons through a specific pathway.


Anything that's in this path gets exposed to a stream of electricity, which would force the electrical potential of a substrate to switch electrical direction. Over time, this causes two different chemicals inside a battery cell to separate. After the charger is withdrawn, the substances can touch and put out an electrical current. 


Voltage Regulators

Heavy-duty chargers feature potent voltage regulators and other sophisticated components that make this process more efficient. Though you'll need more electricity from a battery than you initially put into it, using a heavier-duty charger can go a long way toward reducing the amount of work involved.


Matching Heavy-Duty Chargers To Vehicles

All battery chargers must be matched to the equipment they're going to energize. Look at the type of adapter your existing chargers use and the voltage your vehicle expects. Though many forklifts operate on the same voltage, you'll need this information before you get a replacement. 


Fortunately, it should be easy to locate these figures. Pack-in chargers are often relatively weak compared to aftermarket models, which makes them attractive to those who've found that their existing devices consistently undercharge their cells.
