Quality Contruction


forklift battery,forklift batteries,24v forklift battery,36v forklift battery,48v fork lift battery

Lead bars, or “pigs” are continuously fed  into the grid casting machines. The machines heat the lead to a liquid  state, and then rapidly pour preset amounts into the molds to produce the grids. Once pasted with lead oxide, they become the "plates" that make up each cell of a battery.  

Construction >

As they are removed from the conveyor, each grid is inspected for proper thickness, stacked and palatalized for transport to the pasting area. Positive and Negative plates are cast using separate specialized molds. Different cell sizes use different molds, which requires retooling between production runs.

The positive and negative grids go to separate pasting areas. The positive "paste" has a reddish color and the negative paste has a dull gray color. Quality control personnel are ever present during this critical stage.

The finished plates are then dried and cured in large ovens to harden the "paste" material. Once cured, the positive plates are wrapped, and the positive / negative plates are placed in the correct order with “separators” between them in preparation for initial cell assembly.

Prior to inserting the "plates" into the "cell" jars, they are clamped tightly in a hydraulic jig, and the opposing rows of positive and negative plates are soldered together to form the positive and negative “straps”. The positive and negative posts are also formed during this process. Again, quality control is paramount at this   stage.

The charged cells finally merge with the trays for final battery assembly. The lead intercell connectors are put in place and the delicate process of soldering them in series begins. Any mistake at this stage could cause a lead melt down, which would damage the cell(s), requiring them to be removed and scrapped. Upon completion, quality control personnel thoroughly inspect each battery.  

About GB Battery

Battery Water Level Monitor Lights

Blinky™ Battery Watering Monitors

18-125-15, 18-125-17, 18-85-21 battery. 18-85-23, 18-85-25, 18-85-27 battery. 36v forklift battery

Philadelphia Scientific’s family of battery watering monitors allow watering on a labor-saving “as-needed” basis instead of a hit-or-miss schedule. Watering too frequently can cause electrolyte boil overs, which reduce battery capacity by three percent for each occurrence. Lack of water in batteries creates a low electrolyte level, eventually causing permanent damage to the cells.

The Blinky™ family of monitors will help ensure your electrolyte levels are never too low or too high. They feature the industry’s brightest LED, so they are much more visible. The new Smart Blinky Pro™ introduces an audible dimension of electrolyte level notification. 

And, the installation forgiveness zone reduces the potential for damaging monitors during installation 

and provides a far wider voltage operating zone.

SmartBlinky Pro™ $75

24v battery, 12-125-15 battery. Replacement forklift battery. 12-125-13 battery, 12-85-13 battery

SmartBlinky Pro™

Ideal for applications in which the electrolyte level indicator cannot be seen (e.g., fast and opportunity charging where the battery never leaves the truck) because the LED is mounted outside the battery on the battery cable near the connector. And, Smart Blinky Pro adds an audible dimension of electrolyte level notification.

  • LED blinks green when electrolyte is OK; red and green when filling will be needed soon; red when water is needed.
  • SmartBEEP issues a beep sequence indicating if a battery needs watering and how long the battery has been without water.
  • Patented Smart Sensing Technology eliminates false indication, prevents unnecessary watering and minimizes boil overs
  • Easiest installation

Advanced LED light indication

  • Easy to see and use: The bright LED flash pattern  means that a SmartBlinky Pro is as easy to see as it is to understand.   Intuitive green LED indicates level is OK and Red LED (with  audible  alarm) means water now.
  • Simple installation on cable: Universal voltage and  polarity means the installation is simple and cannot damage the device.  ANYCELL technology means it is almost impossible to put the probe in  the wrong location. 
  • Protects your battery investment: The SmartBlinky Pro helps protect against battery dry-out, a major failure mode for industrial batteries.
  • Inexpensive and cost-effective: Over a battery's  lifetime, a SmartBlinky Pro battery watering monitor saves a surprising  amount of time - or labor cost - and delivers a rapid return on investment.
