Keeping You Informed
Did you know that the individual cells, which house the energy generating parts of the forklift battery, are arranged slightly differently for various kinds of forklift batteries? The usual cell arrangement for 12 volt forklift batteries (6 cells) is a single row of 6 cells; for 24 volts (12 cells) it is either two rows of 6 cells each or three rows of 4 cells each; for 32 volts (16 cells) it is four rows of 4 cells each; and for 36 volts (18 cells) it is three rows of 6 cells each. We strive to provide you with this info—and so much more—here on our forklift battery management page.
