Forklift batteries

What Are the Main Types of Forklift Battery?

There are two kinds of battery: "DIN CELLS" are fitted in 80% of newer forklifts while "BRITISH STANDARD CELLS" (BS CELLS) are found in older trucks. Electric forklift trucks utilise traction batteries as their source of power and most of them can last a very long time. Modern batteries are connected together using bolted connections but traction forklift batteries (old types) are made up of several individual cells, which may be identified by having a ventcap. All are linked together to form a battery.

Among some of the most popular types, forklift trucks operate at 24v, 36v, 48v, 72v and 80v.

The most popular of our forklift batteries are ordered for these types of forklifts:

  • Reach trucks
  • 3 wheeler electric counter balance
  • 4 wheeler electric counter balance
  • Pallet trucks
  • Pallet stackers / Ride on
