We will provide a forklift battery system solution: low cost lithium ion battery packs combined with a proprietary battery management system that provides much faster charging than is available today. We will use readily available commodity (non-proprietary) lithium ion cells. The battery management system will comprise power electronics and software controls. Our battery system will be provided to OEMs for new forklifts, and offered as a replacement for lead acid in existing forklifts. We will offer a patent protected battery management protocol that provides up to 5 x's faster charging than available with existing lithium ion and lead acid battery solutions. We will use commodity lithium ion cells so that the base cell cost will be much lower than most other lithium ion cells.
