Trojan Battery Company teams up with two other industry powerhouses—Lester Electrical and Pack Mule—to showcase its lithium-ion batteries for use with Lester’s Summit II Charger and in Pack Mule’s material-handling equipment.

HORSHAM, PA—March 14, 2023, Trojan Battery Company, a leader in deep-cycle battery technology, partners with Lester Electrical, a global leader in industrial battery chargers, and Pack Mule, a major manufacturer of electric industrial vehicles and carts, to display Trojan’s lithium-ion batteries at ProMat 2023 in Chicago, Illinois, March 20 –23. "Trojan has a close working relationship with Lester Electrical that lets us fine-tune our batteries to Lester chargers for a superior customer experience,” said Trojan’s Director of Business Development for Lithium-Ion and Emerging Technologies Darren Brittain.

See the Trojan/Lester Prototype Battery Pack

Lester Electrical will showcase a prototype Trojan/Lester Battery Pack with a Lester-designed tray, Summit II Charger, and Trojan’s GC2 24-Volt Lithium-Ion Batteries in booth N8427. Trojan and Lester are working to bring the complete package to market. “This prototype, developed cooperatively between Lester Electrical and Trojan Battery Company, brings 150+ years of combined experience to the Class 3 pallet jack industry. It offers users unparalleled charging and battery technology as well as unmatched value,” said Lester Electrical Development Manager Lucas Berndt. The package offers several advantages. Lester and Trojan cooperatively built the charger profiles to optimize efficiency and ensure safe charging. Unlike other technologies, Trojan’s GC2 24-Volt Battery charges faster, delivers longer runtimes, and accepts opportunity charging, increasing productivity. Further, the Summit II Battery Charger employs an intuitive and free Bluetooth® app and cloud connectivity so users can review charge history records and anomalies from the field and increase accountability.

Pack Mule Offering Trojan’s Lithium-Ion as a Premium Selection

Pack Mule will showcase the Trojan CG2 48-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery as a premium offering in two of its vehicles: the BCT-9000 NXG Burden Carrier and the PCT 3500 NXG Tugger. Visit booth S3841 to see these products. This premium option combines lithium-ion batteries that increase run times and accept opportunity charging with rugged, high-capacity vehicles that decrease maintenance and round trips. The lithium-ion batteries also last much longer than flooded lead-acid or AGM, cutting replacements and total cost of ownership. “Trojan Battery’s range of lithium-ion batteries boost efficiency, productivity, and ultimately provide the highest return on investment when paired with Pack Mule vehicles. We chose to partner with Trojan because they are the most established, trustworthy brand that has proven their products are a cut above others,” said Director of Engineering and Quality Assurance William Hoose.
