Upgrade Your Lift Truck Batteries
Increase your cashflow by updating or replacing your lift truck batteries.
Develop more profitable and sustainable operations by upgrading your forklift lead acid batteries or adopting alternative fuel technologies like lithium-ion and hydrogen.
40% LIFETIME GAIN
TPPL batteries are designed for shallow state of charge and opportunity charging, offering 40% more cycles than other lead acid batteries.
2-4X CHARGE RATE
Lithium-ion batteries have 2-4 times the charge rate of lead acid batteries and can be charged almost anywhere at any time.
3,000+ CHARGE CYCLES
Lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen-fuel cells last the service life of a forklift, handling more than 3,000 full charge cycles.
5 MINUTE REFILL
Hydrogen fuel cells provide the highest level of performance with less than 5-minutes of refill powering 6-8 hours of run time.
Our Advanced Power Solutions
Our goal at Alta Motive Power is to provide you with the industry’s best industrial motive power battery or fuel solutions, including lift truck lead acid, lithium-ion batteries, and hydrogen fuel cells. We start with a discovery process to determine which power source is right for you, then compare the benefits of different manufacturers. Our proprietary modeling software lets us engineer the right power solution for your unique needs. We help you reduce your total cost of ownership and increase your productivity and performance.
Lead acid forklift batteries offer some of the lowest costs of acquisition. Traditional Flat-Plate designs are a tried-and-true technology, perfect for smaller operations. Tubular lead acid batteries offer increased performance and reliability. And Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries, combined with a battery monitoring device, provide increased throughput for partial state of charge operations, opportunity and fast charging, and minimal maintenance.
Lowest total cost of acquisition
Developed technology with a range of capacities
Lithium-ion forklift battery technology stores energy more densely than lead acid. The batteries can be smaller, which affects everything from the environmental impact to the space they take up in your machines. Forklift lithium-ion batteries deliver a more consistent voltage longer and have an increased lifespan compared to lead acid batteries. And because they charge quickly there’s no need for bays of spare batteries, or for operators to spend time swapping those batteries out.
More voltage for longer run time
No need for spare batteries or storage room
Hydrogen fuel cells offer the densest energy storage and best performance in the industry. For high-throughput operations running 24/7, the benefits of hydrogen are unmatched. They provide a completely continuous voltage output with zero battery droop, and a full shift can run after less than five minutes of charging. The benefits of hydrogen fuel are currently cost-prohibitive for smaller operations, but those costs are projected to drop over the next 5 to 10 years as the technology becomes more widespread.

Benefits Of Alta Motive Power Solutions
The number one goal in almost all manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and distribution centers is to perform your activities with high productivity and profitability. Our advanced power sources can help you achieve both and are easily integrated into every facility to replace your current lift truck batteries or fuel.
Optimize Your Power & Space
Lead acid batteries have the lowest cost of acquisition. Many facilities already have the required charging infrastructure in place for them, making replacements and upgrades an effective and affordable option. Alternatively, lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen fuel cells recharge in a fraction of the time and require little space to recharge. Switching to these power sources can increase the uptime of your lift trucks and free up square footage.Contact Us To Learn More
Improve & Extend Performance
TPPL batteries offer key benefits over traditional, flat plate lead acid battery technology. They are less averse to opportunity charging and require less maintenance. Lithium-ion and hydrogen technologies deliver even greater benefits, including a constant voltage over a greater Depth of Discharge (DoD). Lithium-ion batteries have a lifespan of more than 3,000 cycles, hydrogen fuel cells are designed to last a lifetime, and both last longer per charge than lead acid batteries.Contact Us To Learn More
Control Ongoing Maintenance Costs
Realizing maximum ROI of your advanced power solutions means keeping up with service and maintenance where needed. While traditional, flat plate lead acid batteries offer the lowest cost of acquisition, they require the most maintenance, including charge times and watering and equalizing the batteries. FLEX® Premium Thin Plate Pure Lead batteries are sealed to minimize this maintenance. Lithium-ion and hydrogen power sources have no need for equalizing or watering, eliminating the risk of damaging these investments by overlooking simple maintenance.Contact Us To Learn More
