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.
