Applied Energy Solutions and AllCell Technologies launched the Superion lithium-ion battery system for pallet jack applications. The system offers fast charging times, small size, low weight, and improved efficiency. Faster and more efficient charging allows operators to do away with extra batteries and battery swapping equipment while simultaneously saving money on electrical bills. The electrolyte level does not need to be monitored, leading to further operational savings. Options range from 5.4 kWh to 10.8 kWh. AllCell’s technology employs a composite material manufactured from phase change materials (PCM) and graphite that effectively absorbs and distributes heat through the battery pack to avoid hotspots and limit maximum temperature.
