TOP ADVANTAGES OF THIN PLATE PURE LEAD BATTERIES

Top Advantages of TPPL Batteries

The last thing you need in your warehouse is unscheduled downtime due to a failing battery. At HAWKER®, we’re committed to providing reliable, progressive motive power solutions to keep your battery fleet up and running.

Our customers need batteries, chargers, and accessories that can adapt to various applications and environments. While there’s a buzz around lithium-ion batteries, this power solution is best suited for heavy-duty applications. Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology is better suited for light to medium-duty applications, or applications with a throughput of 180% or less. Thin Plate Pure Lead batteries, such as our HAWKER FLEX® battery, could provide many benefits to your warehouse at a more cost-effective price. We’re proud to offer this industry-leading, flexible power solution to our customers!

Benefits of Thin Plate Pure Lead Batteries



HAWKER® TPPL technology ensures battery performance through design. Assembled using a thin grid design of high-purity lead, TPPL batteries offer more available power via more plates per bloc or cell and increased plate surface area. These batteries have a higher charge acceptance and thrive with frequent recharging. TPPL batteries require virtually no maintenance (zero watering) saving you time and money, and are 99% recyclable - making them environmentally friendly. But the advantages don’t stop there! TPPL batteries provide you with the power you need, whenever you need it.
