AMETEK Prestolite Power's opportunity charging concept leverages a lift truck operator’s break time to recharge battery power and wirelessly keeps track of efficiency, existing power and other key parameters that help a warehouse run smoothly with reduced downtime and significantly less space.

"If your facility is still changing lift-truck batteries, you're burning money with every charge! Not only is it time-consuming, but battery rooms are useless space that should be making you money instead of wasting it. When you add to that the low efficiency of older chargers, and the safety and environmental risks involved in handling heavy batteries, changing really isn't the way to go.

The safer, more efficient, cost-saving method is opportunity charging. Opportunity charging ensures that your team will never have to do another battery change again. You can clear out that battery room and put that space to good use. Instead, when your driver goes on a break, he or she can simply plug in the lift truck. That way, the battery charges without ever leaving the vehicle. No charges, no extra batteries, no extra work. Just a simple, smart solution.

You might be wondering how batteries can charge so fast. Well, at AMETEK Prestolite Power, we've been making industrial chargers for almost 100 years from our headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. And, we offer the best high frequency chargers in the business. In fact, one like the AMETEK Eclipse II Plus can charge the average truck battery in a fraction of the time compared to a conventional charger. But don't take our word for it! Right now, our customers have tens of thousands of opportunity chargers that work in the field - saving them money and making their facilities work smarter everyday. And with over 400 technicians at the ready throughout North America, they've got power they can rely on.
