    Default BYD Forklift Ad

    An ad in Modern MaterialHandling magazine says:

    "1 Battery x 3 Shifts x Forever"

    Their website says 18 hours, but .....

    Their website is real fancy, but sucks informitively.
    Byd-forklifts.com

    Seems to be a Chinees outfit.

    Iron Phosphate battery technology

    Sounds interesting -technologically speaking....

    I remember the last wave of Chinese electric forklifts......the phone co Telecom bought 700 of them.....not one lasted to the end of the warranty period......the importer defaulted and left for destinations unknown,Telecom copped the loss and sold the lot for scrap.

    Lithium Iron Phosphate is supposed to be The Big New Thing for RVs - immature systems lead to people *taking them back out* (in spite of their very real performance) - and probably contributed to the bankruptcy of Hymer/Roadtrek.

    It may well be the real technology of the future, once it's actually mature....

    Funny side note (that has nothing to do with forklifts) - Hymer/Roadtrek was forced into the receivership at almost the exact same time as I was test driving one of their products at a local dealer - avoided buying one in part because I discovered this doing follow up research that night. For the entire rest of my life it's always been vendors going kaput *after* I bought their stuff.

    Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are used a lot in heavy AGV and LGV applications. The ones I have seen used most often are Valence which initially went bankrupt about 6 or so years ago but emerged with a robust albeit expensive solution that works pretty well. It is now part of Lithiumwerks . . . Safe 12-48V Lithium Ion Battery Manufacturers, Large Batteries
