Toyota BT Optio series was introduced, immediately by the majority of enterprises. DFDS Transport Solutions AB’s Sören Franzén stated: “BT Optio series continues the Toyota forklift series family design concept, the BT Optio series battery, appearance, performance, and other aspects of the upgrade, especially in the climbing performance, safety performance has been comprehensively upgraded, BT Optio with the door frame tilt; Automatic level of the fork; A variety of safety features, such as driving and turning speed control, and new “orange seat belt”
When the Bt Optio Series battery reaches the end of its service life, the lead-acid battery equipped with BT Optio will experience a variety of issues, including decreased use time, insufficient battery kinetic energy, battery maintenance and other issues, and decreased forklift use, all of which will reduce the efficiency of the company’s logistics operations. In terms of battery selection, lithium batteries completely outperform lead-acid batteries in all performance metrics. When considering lithium batteries as an alternative, the following are the best options:
Lithium LiFePO4 vs Lead discharge curve
The discharge curve of the lithium-ion battery is much flatter in the picture, whereas the voltage of the lead-acid battery changes dramatically during discharge, implying that the voltage change at the battery terminals is very small over a wide operating range, which is the most intuitive. When the battery is low, the lithium-ion battery still has a lot of power, but the power of the lead-acid battery is obviously insufficient. The graph below shows that the voltage measurement difference between 40% and 80% of the DoD value for a 48V lead-acid battery is approximately 6.0V, whereas lithium iron phosphate is only 0.5V!
Lithium vs AGM Soc estimation by OCV method
And the use of lithium batteries can effectively reduce the charging time from 8-10 hours to 1-2 hours, which can also greatly shorten the battery charging time (and does not require any cooling at all). Not only in terms of usage and charging, lithium batteries are also completely superior to lead-acid batteries in terms of service life, maintenance-free, and safe use.
