Maximum power at all times.

With constantly high performance.

Li-ion batteries perform better than lead-acid batteries. Greater depth of discharge and a constant voltage characteristic mean that more power than with lead-acid batteries is available even when the battery is running low. The batteries recover energy during braking, and a better overall efficiency rating enables them to save up to 20 percent more energy. In addition, communication between the battery and the charger ensures efficient and fast charging.

Back in the race again faster.

Extremely short charging times.

Li-ion batteries are always charged and ready for use across shifts. After an intermediate charge of only 30 minutes, a 24 V battery will have reached 50 percent of its capacity. For an 80 V battery, it only takes 53 minutes. Full charge is achieved in 80 minutes for the 24 V battery and in 105 minutes for the 80 V battery. Boost and intermediate charging possibilities, such as during breaks and downtimes, ensure 24/7 availability of your vehicles, while increasing flexibility in your day-to-day warehouse operations.

Ready to start at all times.

Without any waiting times.

Li-ion batteries are always ready for the next lap. With no need for breaks. They are completely maintenance-free and do not release gas. Thus, there is no need to spend time or money on maintenance, battery servicing or other infrastructure requirements. Downtimes are also a thing of the past with li-ion batteries.

Stay in the race three times as long.

Thanks to a particularly long service life.

Just like a good sprinter, li-ion batteries are impressive at all stages of the race. That is because the batteries last three times longer than traditional energy storage units. Their extraordinary endurance and consistently higher efficiency rating secure your investment, while saving on power costs.

“Globally, no other brand has more lithium-ion industrial trucks in service than Jungheinrich. We are technology leader in this field and set the standards.”

Dr. Lars Brzoska, Member of the Board of Management in charge of Marketing & Sales, Jungheinrich AG

Peak performance with a top-level team.

A perfectly synchronised system.

A world-class runner needs team backing to reach top performance. And the same goes for li-ion batteries. Full potential is only achieved when everything works together perfectly. As the only system supplier for intralogistics, Jungheinrich offers you a complete, interconnected system in which the battery, charging unit and vehicle perfectly communicate with each other, thus significantly reducing power requirements. We can achieve this level of perfection because we are currently the only manufacturer of industrial trucks anywhere in the world that produces its own li-ion batteries and also implements them for you. And our team approach means we are there for you at every stage of your li-ion project. Whether for retrofitting a single vehicle or converting entire truck fleets. Our consultants are there to help you throughout the process, from planning to implementation.

A pioneer in li-ion technology. Series-ready vehicles in use since 2011.

In the race for electromobility in intralogistics, Jungheinrich has confidently taken the lead and has mastered lithium-ion technology like no other. Right from the start in 2011 – the EJE 112i was the first series-ready li-ion vehicle ever – we have been rigorously developing the technology here at Jungheinrich Energy and Drive Systems (EDS), and have constantly expanded our portfolio of forklift trucks powered by li-ion batteries. Almost our entire fleet is now li-ion ready.
