HAWKER® has expanded its line of virtually maintenance-free, high-performance HAWKER FLEX®  Li3 Lithium-ion battery offering with the addition of an 80-volt model. Engineered for fast recharge, long run times and to deliver high energy capacity in a smaller footprint, the latest HAWKER FLEX® Li3 Lithium-ion battery 80V model provides customers with a premium power solution catered to meet the energy demands of a variety of heavy-duty applications, including those converting from LP- and diesel-fueled equipment to fulfill sustainability requirements.

In concert with the increasing demand for higher voltage industrial equipment, the addition of our 80V HAWKER FLEX® Li3 batteries will fill the current needs of the most demanding operations. Whether a narrow aisle fork truck lifting over 400” or a pneumatic tire outdoor fork truck carrying very heavy loads, HAWKER® will identify the lowest cost of ownership power to meet and exceed all operational demands through data and modeling with our state-of-the-art HAWKER® EDGETM software. "We are excited to support our customers with the addition of our HAWKER FLEX® Li3 80V battery.” said Dean Portney, HAWKER® VP Sales & Marketing. “We will continue to enhance and expand our exceptionally designed and engineered lithium product offering.”

• Capacity: 17.8 to 35.7 kWh (222-444 Ah)
• Can maintain a high State of Charge (SoC) as a result of its fast recharge capability and longer forklift truck run time
• Eliminates battery changes for peak productivity
• Maintenance free – no watering, battery cleaning or long equalize charges
• Integrated Battery Management System (BMS) is designed to Automotive Functional Safety Standard ISO 26262
• BMS supports greater safety, reliability and battery life by performing auto-diagnosis, voltage limitation (charge and discharge) and communication of performance data
• Optional forklift truck integration via CAN protocol
• Engineered with multiple layers of safety
• CE certified to meet EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements

HAWKER FLEX® Li3 Lithium-ion batteries are available in multiple voltages, including 24V, 36V, 48V and now 80V. Additionally, fast- and opportunity-charging HAWKER FLEX® Li3 batteries with high output HAWKER LifePlus® MOD3 chargers provide added user convenience and enhanced fleet efficiency. Utilizing a proprietary HAWKER® EDGE™ modeling software, HAWKER® can work directly with the customer to right-size a HAWKER FLEX® Li3 battery and HAWKER LifePlus® MOD3 charger to their vehicle fleet, helping to eliminate the unwanted downtime and unnecessary stress associated with premature battery failure from improper installation, equipment fitting or charging practices.
