Minit-Charger is a battery fast charging technology that is designed for on-road electric vehicles, automated guided vehicles, material handling, airline, marine and transit applications . Minit-Charger systems recharge batteries faster, and safer than any other system, while actually extending overall battery life.
Minit-Charger can safely and efficiently charge a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) or Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) in 10 minutes (depending upon battery size). The Minit-Chargers systems provide a convenient, safe and reliable method for recharging electric vehicles.
Minit-Charger enables a more environmentally-friendly, energy and cost efficient means of recharging forklifts, automated guided vehicles, airport ground support equipment and other mobile material handling equipment. Eliminating the need for petroleum-based fuels commonly used in material handling vehicles, Minit-Charger is a clean system that emits no harmful emissions. The Minit-Charger system recharges batteries four- to six-times faster than conventional chargers, with battery life that is equal to or longer than those using traditional charging methods. Unlike conventional charging methods that require changing batteries after they are depleted, Minit-Charger can recharge batteries at opportune times, eliminating the need for vehicle operators to remove them from the truck during breaks and shift changes, resulting in enhanced worker safety, productivity and energy and battery cost savings.
Since the launch of Minit-Charger, the company has operated in excess of 25 million charger-shift hours, and there are currently more than 4,300 Minit-Charger units in operation that power over 5,000 lift trucks in the United States and Canada.
