LIFETECH

The LIFETECH™ high-frequency, smart chargers can operate in four separate charging profiles* —
IONIC for standard flooded batteries: VRLA for Hawker valve regulated batteries, AGM for absorbed glass mat batteries and cold storage profile batteries.  In ionic mode, flooded batteries can be charged using the ionic mixing technology by pulse currents. This special technology allows electrolyte to be precisely mixed and completely converts the battery’s active material.

 

Advantages

  1. Ionic charge profile and electromixing reduces overcharge, heat, and water consumption.
  2. 16- 20% start rate.
  3. Opportunity charge capable
  4. Auto equalize every 5th cycle
  5. An ABS flame-retardant enclosure to enhance the innovative energy converting technology.

Power Tech Forklift Battery Charger.High-Frequency Intellicharger™

POWERTECH™

High Frequency Intellicharger™

The PowerTech High Frequency Intellicharger saves you money on your utility bill through three important characteristics. First, PowerTech operates with a power factor of approximately 100% due to its high frequency design helping to reduce cost.  Second, it is extremely conversion efficient.  PowerTech’s high frequency power supply operates at efficiencies of approximately 92% over the full charge cycle. (Tested SCR units showed a range of 80-84).  Lastly, batteries require more than 100% of the removed power to be returned in order to be fully and evenly charged.  PowerTech’s patented intelligent software achieves full charge with less overcharge by using a pulsing electromix to stir electrolyte and by accurately assessing battery condition in order to terminate without overcharge.

Advantages

  1. One PowerTech charger can recharge batteries from 450 up to 1600 AH without adjustment as long as they are the same voltage.
  2. You will consume at least 25% less water due to less overcharge and heat.
  3. Longer battery life and fewer maintenance related expenses due to cooler temperatures.
