The benefits of our battery repair services include:
The most common cause of battery repair is a sulfated battery. If a battery is undercharged, it can lead to excessive sulfation. This can also occur in batteries that have sat uncharged for an extended period. High temperatures will accelerate the sulfation process if batteries are left in a partially charged state as well. Excessive sulfate will cause the cells of the battery to give low specific gravity and voltage readings, and it won’t become fully charged. However, if the sulfation process has not gone too far, we can rebuild the battery and restore it to a serviceable state.
Your battery may also undergo excessive self-discharge. This occurs when a forklift battery is in a charged state, and a local electrochemical reaction occurs within the cells, causing gradual discharging. A small amount is normal. However, the discharge rate is temperature-related and can increase as the temperature rises.
