Forklift Battery Regeneration
Expand the lifespan of your batteries
If you would like to revive your old and used Forklift batteries, saving money and waste, then battery regeneration may be just what you are looking for.
What is Battery Regeneration?
Battery regeneration can recondition used forklift batteries. Provided the lead acid battery is in good mechanical condition regeneration can restore a large percentage of a battery’s original capacity. The regeneration process uses state of the art technology to desulphate the battery cells and return lost capacity to the battery.
What causes batteries to lose capacity?
After repeated operating cycles (charging and discharging) batteries loose capacity and efficiency. This is because on each charge, tiny lead sulphate crystals are deposited on the lead plates inside the battery. These hard crystals build up over time and prevent the battery from accepting a full charge. This process is caused sulphation and is the main reason for batteries losing their capacity. Good battery care can help increase a battery’s lifespan, including:
- only charging once a day,
- checking water levels regularly,
- letting the battery cool and rest
- not running a battery below 20% capacity.

These sulphate crystals can not be removed with a normal charger. Replacing old batteries is expensive and not very environmentally friendly.
Why Choose battery regeneration
Battery regeneration can reverse the sulphation process and restore the performance of your old forklift batteries. This service offers significant cost savings compared to replacement with either new or used batteries. See a cost comparison below.
Battery regeneration is also the environmentally friendly option.
