Flux's 24-volt LiFT Pack

Lithium battery developer Flux Power Holdings, Inc. has secured an order for its Flux's 24-volt LiFT Pack batteries to power the electric pallet jacks of a US based consumer packaged goods company.

The Californian company’s industrial ESS Li-ion LiFT Pack S5, was designed for use on Class III pallet jacks or "walkies," which are small forklifts operated by a user walking alongside.

The announcement follows technical approval of the Flux packs by the forklift OEM's, Toyota Material Handling Group North America and Crown Equipment Corporation.

As the packaged goods company assessed Flux's 250Ahe LiFT Pack battery, before expanding its evaluation to the 80Ahe and 135Ahe models

The packs produce 2000 cycles before battery capacity is 80% of the original size and able to produce 180Amp and max peak current, according to Flux.

Ron Dutt, Flux Power's CEO, said was excited to have secured approval for their lithium battery packs.

He added: “We are pleased that Crown and Toyota recognise the value our advanced lithium battery packs bring to their key customers and thank them for their support in making this happen. “Today's technical and purchase approvals are significant milestones that build Flux's reputation, brand and market position."
