This forklift model, available for sale and hire from Angus, features an Iron Phosphate battery that offers optimal power, swift recharging, and zero maintenance.

To hire and buy Electric Iron-Phosphate forklifts, you might need to do a fair bit of research, but the BYD ECB ATEX Iron-Phosphate forklift we offer for sale and hire in the UK offers all the features you need in even the most demanding work environment, including:

  • A 1-hour speedy charge option
  • A powerful 80V 540Ah explosion-proof battery that side-loads for convenience
  • 10,000 hour or 8-year battery warranty
  • Special equipment: double joystick controller, synchronized steering, and air conditioning

The process of producing them is even more ecologically friendly than lead-acid.

Since these batteries don’t need to charge as often, when you rent or purchase an Iron-Phosphate forklift there are also cost savings in powering equipment and no need to waste time or labour switching batteries. It’s also worth noting that lead-acid batteries can lose up to 50% of the energy they store as they emit heat, whereas that number is only up to 15% for Iron-Phosphate batteries.

Energy efficiencies

When considering whether to hire or buy an Iron-Phosphate forklift for your UK projects in areas like Leicester, Northampton, Birmingham, Nottingham, Warwick, Derby, West Midlands, and East Midlands, you may like to know that its lighter batteries weigh about a third as much as lead-acid batteries which means less energy gets wasted lugging them around, and forklift designs have evolved for better performance, ergonomics, and more comfortable conditions for the driver.

It’s also possible to get more performance when renting or buying a smaller Iron-Phosphate forklift than before since the Iron-Phosphate batteries are at least 95% efficient compared to the 80-85% rate of efficiency you can expect from a lead-acid battery.

Why hire and buy Iron Phosphate Forklifts?

If you are looking for Iron-Phosphate forklift sales & hire in the UK, than you know that one of the main benefits of Iron-Phosphate batteries is their extended lifespan that lasts 3000+ cycles compared to the standard 500-1000 cycles you can expect from a lead-acid battery. This longer lifespan allows you to get more full cycles from Iron-Phosphate batteries based on the percentage of charge than from other types of batteries, and charging times are much shorter.

A lead-acid battery needs a full charge once it gets depleted; otherwise, the battery’s total capacity may be damaged or reduced prematurely over time. When you hire or purchase Iron-Phosphate forklifts, you can charge the unit during a 10-minute break or during lunch without damage, which is called “opportunity charging.”

Iron-Phosphate technology features two primary chemical components: Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (NMC) and Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP).

These chemicals make up the rechargeable Iron-Phosphate batteries used in forklifts and a variety of other equipment today, with NMC featuring as a well-known compound in the manufacturing of electric cars, where energy density and size matter most.

LFP also offers a high level of energy density for its size without the risk of inflammation which is why many international and UK manufacturers and sellers of Iron-Phosphate forklift equipment have switched to this technology. With LFP batteries, you can also expect 2000+ cycles, whereas NMC batteries come in slightly lower at 1000-2000 cycles.

Our Iron-Phosphate forklifts are available for sale and rental across the UK, feature good electrochemical performance thanks to this Iron-Phosphate technology, and some of the vital benefits include a high level of current, excellent thermal stability that ensures the battery isn’t likely to explode, and a long cycle life.

Iron-Phosphate batteries that use LFP are also safer and more tolerant of abuse which makes them ideal to hire and buy for larger equipment such as pallet trucks and electronic forklift trucks. You’ll find that many Iron-Phosphate forklifts that are available for sale and rent in the UK are less likely to have batteries that burn when punctured and won’t catch fire, which is of vital importance in a warehouse scenario or wherever workers are present.

If you look at BYD ECB ATEX Iron-Phosphate forklift sales & hire at Angus, you’ll see that BYD uses LFP technology, and these batteries often get labeled “explosion-proof even if they get punctured during a workplace accident. Despite these batteries’ impressive capacity, they often feature a “speedy charging” option that takes approximately one hour, making Iron-Phosphate forklifts a perfect rent and buy for a large variety of projects across the UK.

The Iron-Phosphate batteries and forklifts available for sale and rental from Angus also feature more extended warranties than lead-acid batteries, and a single battery lasts longer than one workday for most equipment. The cells inside an LFP battery are also sealed and don’t require any maintenance like a lead-acid battery that might need to get topped off with water on occasion.

The increased safety, energy density, and lack of maintenance make this technology highly valued for powering heavy equipment like forklifts, where long hours and heavy loads are the standard.
