BYD electric forklifts have unique 'Battery-for-Life'

BYD electric forklifts have unique 'Battery-for-Life'

The biggest headache with traditional electric forklift trucks is the time, trouble and cost involved in constantly having to recharge them as well as the risk of damage to the battery due to improper maintenance, which leads to expensive battery replacement. But now a new concept in battery technology is completely redefining the performance users will come to expect from their electric materials handling equipment.

Electric Boats, Small Ships and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

Electric Boats, Small Ships and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

Electric vehicles, meaning free running vehicles with electric drive and carrying their own electricity storage are one business, whether sea, land or airborne. The components and even the complete electric drive trains are increasingly made by companies not restricting themselves to one of these applications. Despite our definition of marine electric vehicles omitting the traditional large diesel-electric and nuclear-electric ships and submarines, the marine EV sector is second only to the land sector in market value, aircraft being some way behind as yet.
