Espex unveils IMHX plans

03 June 2019

Espex Batteries will be displaying its new fast-charging technology at IMHX in Birmingham this September.

The new lead-acid traction battery range is designed specifically to offer rapid recharge and ‘opportunity charging’, rivalling lithium-ion batteries in multi-shift operation while being significantly more economical, says the firm.

Chief executive of Espex Batteries, Amit Ghosal, explains: “Lead-acid batteries are popular choices in the UK logistics scene – and beyond – for many practical reasons. Adding in fast-recharging makes them an even stronger prospect in the face of competition from lithium-ion rivals, and this move will really seal our position as the go-to supplier of forklift traction batteries.”

An additional benefit of the new range is that, unlike with lithium-ion batteries, existing electrical mains wiring and battery chargers can be used, rather than needing to be replaced.
