Flux Power Holdings has announced that it has completed development of a lithium-ion battery solution designed to power large, Class 1 forklifts.

Flux has also provided an update on order and shipment activity for its Class 3 LiFT Packs.

Flux's Class 1 lithium-ion battery pack is a high performance and cost-effective alternative to lead-acid for powering forklift equipment. This solution delivers six to eight times the power of its Class 3 LiFT Pack and costs approximately four times that of Flux's Class 3 LiFT Packs. The Class 1 evaluation pack also incorporates new wireless performance monitoring capabilities that enables the customer to track the battery's state of health and location. Flux's (unnamed) potential customer has identified a near term need to install new batteries on 60 Class 1 forklifts located at various locations.

Interesting to note is the fact that the company's battery pack for Class 1 forklifts utilises much of the base design of a pack developed for airport ground service equipment. In fact, a Flux GSE pack was tested earlier this year in the US by several leading airlines: the GSE pack was utilised extensively over a five-month period and performance exceeded customer expectations. Flux is now in dialogue regarding a possible future deployment of its airport GSE solution with several different clients.
