Forklift battery getting Hot?

The very act of using your forklift battery causes heat. Lead acid batteries create energy from the chemical reaction taking place inside the cells. One byproduct of this action is heat. If your forklift is does a lot of heavy lifting or has a extreme demand of charging and discharging, heat can result. The optimal temperature is 77 degrees. If your forklift battery is running at a higher temperature you need to call BPS to find out why.

We have the tools, equipment and experience to determine why your forklift battery is running too hot!

Call 1-800-878-2779 for expert battery service today!

One way we learn more about the state of your battery is by bringing our Load Bank.

Specific Gravity is the true marker of your forklift battery’s condition. The required Specific Gravity for every unit is printed on the battery.

We have the tools and supplies to adjust your battery to its proper specific gravity at your location!

The weaker the Specific Gravity the faster your battery will run out of power.

We adjust the Specific Gravity to the exact specifications for each type, style and model of forklift battery. 

Terms to Understand!

Specific Gravity (Sp. Gr. or SG): Specific Gravity is a measure of the electrolyte concentration in a battery. This measurement is based on the density of the electrolyte compared to the density of water and is typically determined by the use of a hydrometer (see “HYDROMETER”). By definition, the specific gravity of water is 1.00 and the specific gravity of the sulfuric acid electrolyte in a typical fully charged battery is 1.265-1.285. Specific gravity measurements are typically used to determine if the battery is fully charged or if the battery has a bad cell.

Load Tester: An instrument that draws current (discharges) from a battery using an electrical load while measuring voltage. It determines the battery’s ability to perform under actual discharge conditions.

Hydrometer: Device used to indicate density or specific gravity of electrolyte solutions.

We Can’t Make your Old Battery New Again, but we can make it deliver what it is capable of.
