V-Force V-HFMForklift Battery Chargers

The One Battery Charger To Satisfy Every Need

We're revolutionizing modular charging with a smart, connected and efficient battery charger.

Unparalleled Efficiency

With efficiency levels up to 97 percent, the V-HFM3 is more efficient than other high frequency chargers on the market.

More power has been packed into a smaller, stackable footprint that saves space and energy.

97% charge efficiency

An Intelligent Charging Assistant

Smart sensors and intelligent displays, including automatic voltage sensing and color LED indicator lights, make charging easy, safe and reliable. Automatically apply the correct charging profile upon connection without the use of a monitoring device.
