Faster Charging, Extended Run Time and Longer Life

V-Force Lithium-Ion Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are ideal for multi-shift operations utilizing opportunity charging. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion provides:

Up to 40 percent greater energy efficiency
Up to 40 percent greater energy efficiency
Higher sustained voltage properties
Higher sustained voltage properties
Higher rate of return during any charging event
Higher rate of return during any charging event
24-hour period
Up to 22 hours of run time per 24-hour period

V-Force Lithium-Ion Enhances the WP Series

The fully integrated V-Force Lithium-Ion ESS optimizes battery life, performance and value with:

  • An integrated, on-board charger 
  • An in-truck display of battery levels and warnings
  • A battery management system that prevents abuse and operation outside of warrantied conditions
  • Connection to an early warning system that alerts the operator before it stops truck operation

Safe and Maintenance-Free

Lithium-ion battery packs are sealed units with no watering or battery change-outs required and can be safer than lead-acid batteries. During charging, they avoid exposure to harmful acid and vapors and eliminate the need for expensive ventilation systems. During use, the battery management system measures individual cell temperature and voltage while providing deep-discharge, short circuit and overcharge protections.
