Go Power! Offers Pallet Jack and Liftgate Solar Charging Solution

November 30, -0001

Go Power! has paired its solar charging system with a new component for work trucks. The dual-charging system was engineered specifically for charging liftgate and pallet jack batteries.

An 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. Topping off liftgate and pallet jack batteries with solar power extends the life of the batteries from months to years, according to Go Power! The DCS eliminates the need for idling while operating a liftgate, saving up to $25-40 per day in fuel costs.

Minimal modifications are required to the truck or trailer and only basic tools are needed to secure the solar panels and wire them into the truck's electrical system.

The kid includes Go Power's low-profile solar panels, which are 1/8-inches thick and lighter weight than traditional panels. The modular panel design allows for easy expansion if required for service routes with limited daylight locations. Panels are covered by a standard five-year warranty.
