Go Power! Unveils New Pallet Jack & Liftgate Solar Charging Solution

| March 23, 2018

Go Power

The newest charging solution from solar industry leader Go Power! pairs its best-selling solar charging system with a new component to make dead liftgates and pallet jack batteries a thing of the past.

The first of its kind, the Dual Charging System, (or DCS) was engineered specifically for charging both liftgate and pallet jack batteries. The unique component–The Auto Switching Power Control unit–allows the DCS to automatically switch from charging pallet jacks to liftgates, depending on what is plugged into the unit. The DCS not only saves time, it reduces fuel costs by making deliveries more efficient.

The DCS uses solar to solve many common battery problems truck operators face daily. Topping off liftgate and pallet jack batteries with solar extends the life of the batteries from months to years. According to the American Trucking Association, in 2015 trucks in the USA consumed 54.3 billion gallons of fuel for business purposes. The DCS eliminates the need for idling while operating a liftgate, saving up to $25-40 per day in fuel costs, according to data retrieved from Go Power! liftgate installation

The kit also features Go Power’s flexible, low-profile solar modules. These solar panels are a mere 1/8-inch thick and are 82% lighter weight than traditional panels. The modular panel design also allows for easy expansion if required for service routes with limited daylight locations. The Go Power panels deliver continuous battery charging for both the liftgate and the pallet jack while driving or parked. The come with a standard 5-year warranty and, according to the company, a 2-year ROI.
