Tailored to meet the high demands of modern supply chains, ePicker's batteries are redefining operational efficiency and safety. From extended lifecycles surpassing 4000 cycles to rapid and convenient charging options, these batteries are not just about power – they're about transforming the way we work. Dive into the world of ePicker's innovative solutions and see how they're paving the way towards a more efficient, safe, and sustainable future.
Extended Battery Durability:
Lithium-Ion batteries boast a lifespan surpassing 4000 cycles, significantly outlasting the 500-1000 cycles of lead acid batteries. This extended life is due to Lithium-Ion batteries enduring multiple times more cycles than their lead acid counterparts. Furthermore, charge cycles for Lithium-Ion batteries are calculated by the percentage of charge used, not simply by each connection to a charger. For instance, a 10% charge utilizes only 1/10th of a cycle in Lithium-Ion batteries, as opposed to lead acid batteries where it counts as a full cycle.

Convenient Charging Options:
Unlike lead acid batteries that require lengthy 8-12 hour full charge cycles to maintain balance, Lithium-Ion batteries excel with opportunity charging. This feature allows them to be quickly charged for short periods, such as 10 minutes during a break, optimizing shift work and reducing the overall ampere-hour requirements in vehicles.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency:
Lithium-Ion batteries typically achieve an impressive 95% efficiency rate or higher, meaning the vast majority of stored energy is usable. In contrast, lead acid batteries usually have an efficiency of about 80 to 85%.
Rapid Charging Capability:
These high-efficiency batteries have the advantage of faster charging, reaching full charge in just 2-3 hours compared to the 8-hour requirement of lead-acid batteries. This rapid charging significantly reduces downtime in operations like warehouse work.
Variety in Lithium Battery Technology:
Lithium-Ion batteries, named for their active materials, are made using different chemical compositions. The two most significant types for the forklift industry are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC).
NMC, a well-known technology in the automobile and manufacturing industries, is prized for its high energy density and compact size. However, it poses risks of inflammation or explosion under certain conditions. Despite these risks, its light weight and high energy density keep it in use in some material handling products. In contrast, leading manufacturers, including ePicker, opt for LFP technology for its robust electrochemical performance, low resistance, high current rating, long cycle life, thermal stability, and safety even under stress. LFP batteries, especially in larger equipment like electric nodes, pallet trucks, or forklifts, offer superior safety as they do not catch fire or burn when punctured, making LFP technology a safer choice.
