Flux Power unveils new 500Ahe lithium battery line for end rider forklifts/pallet jacks
Flux Power Holdings, Inc., a developer of advanced lithium batteries for industrial applications, announced the beta version of its 500Ahe LiFT Pack lithium-ion battery for end rider pallet jacks, the newest entrant to its LiFT Pack line for Class III lift equipment (forklifts).
In response to customer requests for a higher power lithium storage alternative to legacy lead-acid batteries, Flux developed and is now releasing the beta version of its 500Ahe LiFT Pack model E3 battery for end rider pallet jacks which carry a standing driver in addition to a pallet load. End Riders are larger, heavier and more powerful than walkie pallet jacks, Flux’s initial target market, requiring a more robust energy storage solution. Flux’s strategy has been to build industry awareness and adoption for its lithium-based LiFT Pack solutions, starting with smaller, widely-deployed walkies, and then to extend into larger, more complex solutions such as end riders.
Flux CEO Ron Dutt, commented, “Flux Power is transforming the industrial battery sector with its expanding line of lithium battery packs that significantly exceed the performance of traditional lead-acid batteries at a significantly lower total cost of ownership. Our state-of-the-art lithium solutions solve a variety of existing performance challenges with a common theme: longer run times, sustained high power performance, limited maintenance and a greener solution. Flux delivers these advantages at price points that significantly lower the total cost of ownership compared to conventional battery offerings.”
Flux has secured leading OEM and global customer technical approvals for its 250Ahe, 135Ahe and 80Ahe LiFT Pack models that power walkie pallet jacks. National and regional material handling operators with significant Class III material handling needs have piloted Flux LiFT Packs and are now moving into initial or expanded deployments. These customers have experienced the performance benefits of Flux LiFT Packs and are thrilled to find a viable alternative to legacy solutions.
The 500Ahe LiFT Pack model E3 beta will initially be available to select partners and customers for field trials, please contact sales@FLUXpwr.com
