Applied Energy Solutions Releases New Technology in Lithium-Ion Product

Friday, January 11, 2013

Applied Energy Solutions ( has released a brand new advancement in green technology to the world of material handling. They have announced their use of lithium-ion in a battery and charger pack for pallet jacks. CEO, Vern Fleming said, "Specializing in industrial applications and advanced technology has always been a part of Applied Energy Solutions’ goals and we will always strive to provide these solutions to our customers for added choices.”

The lithium-ion technology provides a much more energy dense and efficient chemistry over the traditional lead acid batteries commonly found in these material handling applications. This causes the battery to require less energy to be returned to a full state of charge, leading to considerable amounts of energy savings and great reductions in the user’s carbon footprint. The new product is also virtually maintenance free because the electrolyte level does not need to be monitored. The lithium-ion charger and battery pack also allows vehicle performance to reduce very little as the battery is discharged.

The lithium-ion battery and charger pack will be displayed during MHI’s ProMat 2013 at the Applied Energy Solutions booth #972.

Applied Energy Solutions manufactures industrial battery chargers for forklifts, pallet jacks and other battery powered transportation equipment in Upstate, New York. AES specializes in fitting the proper battery charger for the specific material handling application; high frequency charging, cold storage, rapid charging, opportunity and multiple-shift charging. All products are made in the USA from design to final assembly. For more information on the full complete line of AES battery chargers, call 1.800.836.2132 or visit
