Hamburg: At its 2018 trade press conference, Jungheinrich presented the ETV 216i as the first reach truck with an integrated lithium-ion battery. A major advantage of lithium-ion technology is the ability to recharge the battery even during short breaks to increase the truck's availability. By equipping the truck with a new on-board charger mounted directly on the Li-ion battery, Jungheinrich is now making the lithium-ion reach truck even more flexible. Equipped with its own charger, the ETV216i can be charged at any standard 400V 16A high-voltage socket. This enables charging at various points in the warehouse without the need to provide a specific charging infrastructure on site. Also, the vehicle does not have to be driven to the charging station, so that unnecessary journeys can be saved. A 2500 mm long coiled cable allows the vehicle to be parked in any position to the power outlet. When the reach truck is in use, the cable is safely stowed in a storage compartment. The maximum charging current of 140 A allows the completely empty battery to be fully charged in just four hours. Even with the on-board charger, the truck's battery can be charged with an external charger and the quick charge socket can still be used.
