Hawker® Evolution® is a new valve regulated gas recombination battery with gelled electrolyte, accepting up to 80% DOD 5. This range is suitable for use in forklift trucks, pallet trucks, electric vehicles and automatic transport systems. The cells have a greater capacity than most other maintenance free batteries on the market. The full benefits of Hawker Evolution’s high performance is optimised by using the battery in combination with our high frequency smart chargers, Lifetech, Lifeplus or Life IQ, which allow a short charging time of only 8 hours in condition of 60% DOD or 12 hours charging time at 80% DOD 5.
Thanks to the benefits offered by the Hawker Evolution technology, (no water topping up, very low gas emission, no acid leakage .), which requires a much simplified charging room, this range offers significant operational cost benefits. With minimal gas emissions it is ideal for use in sensitive environments such as the food industry. The Hawker Evolution battery range is available in DIN and BS dimensions, complying with standards DIN/EN 60254-2 and IEC 254-2.
