PRESS: Batteries and chargers - something new under the sun

Jul 25, 2016

Excerpt from our latest press published in DC Velocity:

"Two product categories that haven't changed much in the last 10 years—batteries and chargers for lift trucks and mobile devices—are undergoing a transformation.

If you've been operating under the assumption that the batteries and chargers you will use to power your forklifts and mobile devices a few years from now will be pretty much the same as the ones you've used for the past decade, you'd better sit down. We have news for you: This normally staid product category is on the verge of a revolution.

 

Advances in technology are fostering a wave of innovation in chargers and batteries—both very large ones, such as those for electric lift trucks, and very small ones for mobile devices like bar-code scanners, RFID readers, and printers. There's a lot going on, and we can't cover every recent development in this short article. But we can offer a few examples of the capabilities that are turning old-school equipment into 21st century tools. Here are five that bear watching:
