In some warehouses and DCs, lift truck batteries are taken for granted. Much like car batteries, they're treated as something that can essentially be ignored until there's a problem. But a lift truck battery is not a "set it and forget it" piece of equipment. Rather, it's a complex device powered by electrochemical reactions; compromise the battery's ability to efficiently produce those reactions and you'll diminish its performance and lifespan.
