The BYD dual-charging system
The BYD dual-charging system – available initially for the IFOY Award-nominated ECB50 counterbalance fork lift – offers two charging ports to the material handling equipment, effectively doubling the charging speed when connected to a pair of charger guns each offering 200A when plugged into a single compact, intelligent BYD charger. In environments where high productivity relies on maximum availability of the material handling fleet, such as high-throughput warehouses and cross-docking facilities, the BYD dual-charging system will ensure high levels of uptime.

In 2020, BYD celebrates its 10th year as a manufacturer of Lithium Iron-Phosphate battery-powered fork lifts. “We are excited to announce the BYD dual-charging system as we celebrate our 10th anniversary as a fork lift manufacturer,” says Blade Feng, fork lift business unit director at BYD Europe. “As a pioneer in the rapidly developing Iron-Phosphate powered fork lift sector, we are continually innovating to ensure our customers are provided with the means to operate at maximum efficiency with the smallest-possible impact on the environment. Our dual-charging system not only provides rapid charging, but also does so in a safe and sustainable manner.
BYD is also launching to the market its second-generation BYD PTP20P Stand-On Pallet Truck. Initially scheduled for its world premiere at the cancelled LogiMAT 2020 trade fair, this completely re-engineered high-speed truck, with a driving speed up to 12 km/h, features superior stability, flexibility, and a floating driving system for optimal traction, a 2000kg load capacity, and has a fixed platform and side panel.
Like all BYD material handling equipment, the BYD PTP20P is powered by BYD Iron-Phosphate battery technology, ensuring high levels of reliability and uptime, and a highly competitive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

When compared to equipment powered by traditional lead acid batteries, BYD batteries require no maintenance, have a shorter charge time, a longer working life, and use considerably less energy. BYD fast-charging technology allows the charging time to be reduced to just one hour. Furthermore, BYD batteries can be topped-up during short breaks in operations with no detrimental effect to the integrity of the battery, thus guaranteeing maximum uptime at the lowest-possible cost.
“As a leading manufacturer of new energy vehicles and a global leader in the manufacturer of electric buses, our tried-and-tested Lithium Iron-Phosphate battery technology is at the heart of all of our material handling equipment,” concludes Blade Feng. “With maintenance-free operation and an up-to-40% reduction in energy use compared to equivalent capacity lead acid battery-powered equipment, BYD trucks are particularly well-suited for multi-shift applications and enable both distribution partners and operators to make an easy investment decision.”
