OneCharge Inc., Irvine, Calif., reached an agreement with Combilift to fit its trucks with lithium-ion batteries.

"OneCharge lithium batteries have developed full integration with Combilift electric lift trucks," says Niall Crehan, U.S. vice president of sales for Combilift, Greensboro, N.C. "OneCharge Inc. has worked closely with us to meet the high standards and specific needs of our electric trucks."

"We’re excited to be the first lithium battery manufacturer in the USA to be approved by Combilift. It allows us to offer our solutions to many new customers and to provide better support to many of our customers who already enjoy OneCharge lithium batteries in their Combilift lift trucks," adds Tim Karimov, president of OneCharge. "We have been focusing on promoting lithium batteries for use in the material handling equipment for over 6 years, and are happy to see the growing acceptance of this technology in this market."

OneCharge lithium batteries have full communications integration with the whole line of Combilift electric lift trucks. The plug-and-play configuration allows a lithium battery to integrate seamlessly into the truck, retaining full functionality of the battery state of charge indicator and low battery warning system.
