Lithium-ion Battery Pack for Floor Cleaning Machines
Floor Machine Batteries: Everything You Need to Know (Types, Maintenance, Cost)
When purchasing janitorial cleaning equipment, the main focus typically relies on finding a machine that fits your budget and will provide your facility with a range of benefits such as improved worker productivity and enhanced cleaning results.
Some of the most popular machines are battery powered, because they can boost worker productivity by 30% or more when compared to cord electric equipment. They also allow the operator to clean beyond the length of a cord or without being restricted to the nearest outlet.
Aside from identifying these obvious benefits of a battery powered machine, little thought is often given to the type of battery or required maintenance of your equipment’s batteries.
However, batteries are a costly component of your janitorial cleaning equipment investment. Maximizing the life of your battery will help you achieve a faster return on your investment and save you from having to replace costly batteries.
Battery powered floor machines are essential for facility maintenance crews to get the job done. This is why many floor sweeper/scrubbers utilize JB BATTERY deep-cycle batteries. The JB BATTERY’s lithium-ion battery packs for floor cleaning machines contains 6V, 12V and 24V batteries can maintain peak capacity for longer periods between charges, which results in greater vehicle reliability and lower annual operating costs. With JB BATTERY latest technology, these battery plates transport a greater watt-hour per liter and watt-hour per kilogram, producing the best flooded lithium-ion battery packs on the market.

What is a lithium ion battery?
MA30 13B Lithium BatteryLithium ion batteries are spill proof and maintenance free, but they use a chemical compound, typically lithium cobalt oxide or lithium iron phosphate, to charge.
Lithium-ion battery pack, or Li-ion batteries for short, have lithium ions that bounce back and forth between the cathode and anode of the battery during charge and discharge.
Lithium-ion batteries are all about the movement of lithium ions. In short, when the battery is charging, the ions move one way and when it is providing power the ions move the opposite way to supply power.
How to properly maintain lithium ion batteries?
To preserve the life of lithium ion batteries, it will be critical to properly maintain the batteries during every charging procedure. They are especially susceptible to heat.
Lithium ion batteries have several components that degrade over time.
Store the batteries in low temperatures and always allow the battery to cool down after charging before using it again.
How much does a lithium ion battery cost?
Lithium batteries are by far the most expensive. They can be as much as double or triple the price of wet-flooded batteries, but offer the operator the increased convenience of no maintenance and a long battery life.
The increased cost of a lithium battery can be offset by the number of times it can be recharged. Lithium ion batteries will also reach a full charge more quickly when compared to Gel, AGM, or wet flooded batteries.
Advantages of Lithium Ion Batteries
Longest Life, General Charge Cycles Range Between 880-1500
Smaller, Lighter Weight
Disadvantages of Lithium-ion Battery packs
Sensitive to Heat
Difficult to Dispose
