Reducing Operating Costs with the BYD lithium iron phosphate forklift

In the figure above the hidden costs of operating a BYD Lithium Iron Phosphate forklift are compared to those typically found in forklifts powered by common lead acid batteries or by internal combustion engines.


Since the BYD battery never needs to be replaced, there are no costs associated to changing the empty battery with a charged one. The BYD battery is maintenance free, and does not need to be manipulated. These maintenance costs are zero with a BYD forklift. In addition, the BYD lithium iron phosphate battery consumes approximately 40% less energy while charging and discharging than a common battery.

BYD solution:

Common lead-acid batteries need to be replaced every 4-6 years. This means that for a period of 10 or more years, 2 or even 4 new expensive lead-acid batteries will need to be purchased. With a BYD forklift, with its extremely long life battery life, this investment is no longer necessary.
