GNB Industrial Power, a Division of Exide Technologies, LLC offers a new lithium-ion battery that takes motive power battery performance to the next level. The GNB LiFTFORCE LPX 2.0 has greater energy density, improved integration and communication capabilities, and a wider application range–all at a lower cost compared to the first generation LiFTFORCE LPX offering.


The LiFTFORCE LPX 2.0 provides increased cycle life and lower maintenance requirements for Class I, II, and III forklifts as well as Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and other demanding applications relative to conventional lead batteries. It’s an ideal solution for large distribution centers and companies that run heavy-duty or multiple shifts looking to lower their operational costs.


The LiFTFORCE LPX 2.0 features:

  • Data logging capabilities to generate usage and status reports
  • Option for remote communication for full integration into GNB Cloud, a battery and charger management tool that enables users to leverage live fleet data to customize and compare various motive power options, simulating performance before deployment
  • Ability to accommodate vehicle CAN Protocols


  • 24/7 forklift operation using the same battery with only short bursts of recharging needed while workers are on breaks
  • Freed-up floor space for storage and operations due to the ability to use wall chargers; this also eliminates the need to shuffle cumbersome batteries in and out of the forklift
  • Lower maintenance requirements than lead-acid batteries due to the eliminated need for watering
  • Specialized electronic BMS (Battery Management System) that monitors the status and health of each battery?
