AccelRate Power Systems (Vancouver, BC, Canada), a developer of rapid battery chargers, announced its receipt of an initial stocking order from Carney Battery Handling Ltd. (Canada) for AccelRate Smart Chargers. Carney has placed its initial order for the full range of AccelRate SC battery chargers, which can fully recharge any 24 V, 36 V or 48 V forklift, walkies or aerial lift batteries in two hours, with no negative impact to battery lifetime.

"Using AccelRate’s unique, high-speed Smart Chargers, a typical Canadian 30-unit forklift operation could save up to one million dollars annually," said AccelRate Vice President of Motive Power Pierre Gadbois. "Carney Battery Handling has recognized the many advantages of AccelRate Smart Chargers, including the elimination of expensive battery-charging rooms by some operations."
