At HD Forklifts, you’ll find brand new forklift batteries at great prices. Our extensive range of forklift truck batteries include a variety of voltages and cell types, with positive plate capacity from 120 Ah to 1550 Ah, and in various sizes.

If you’re looking to buy a new forklift battery, simply provide us with the number of cells and the battery type and we will be more than happy to send you a quote. If you’re not sure what type your battery you need, you can check the identification label or sticker on the side of the existing battery. If this isn’t possible, give us a call and we’ll do our best to help. Once we’ve identified the battery you require, we will attend your site and remove the old cells from the tank. We will then clean the tank and rebuild the battery using brand new cells, new bolts, connectors and packing. We will also assemble a new harness.

What Are the Main Types of Forklift Battery?

There are two kinds of battery: “DIN CELLS” are fitted in 80% of newer forklifts while “BRITISH STANDARD CELLS” (BS CELLS) are found in older trucks. Electric forklift trucks utilise traction batteries as their source of power and most of them can last a very long time. Modern batteries are connected together using bolted connections but traction forklift batteries (old types) are made up of several individual cells, which may be identified by having a ventcap. All are linked together to form a battery.

Among some of the most popular types, forklift trucks operate at 24v, 36v, 48v, 72v and 80v.

The most popular of our forklift batteries are ordered for these types of forklifts:

  • Reach trucks
  • 3 wheeler electric counter balance
  • 4 wheeler electric counter balance
  • Pallet trucks
  • Pallet stackers / Ride on
