Innovations in Battery Life: How Long-Lasting Batteries Enhance Floor Cleaning Efficiency

Extended Operational Time

Long-lasting batteries allow floor cleaning equipment to operate for extended periods without frequent recharging. This is particularly beneficial in large commercial spaces where downtime can disrupt cleaning schedules and efficiency. The truth is, many battery manufacturers have opted to build batteries according to price-points, foregoing long lasting, high-quality batteries for a product that is just good enough. Fullriver has stayed the course, continuing to build the same long lasting AGM batteries they have from the beginning. Fullriver Battery’s high-capacity AGM batteries are designed to provide consistent power, ensuring uninterrupted cleaning cycles for years of usage.

What makes a Fullriver Battery Long Lasting?

Many batteries currently being promoted in the floorcare industry tout many similarities to the Fullriver DC Series. These batteries are in an AGM format, they are sealed and maintenance-free, and consist of a high percentage of lead for their plate composition. But, as they say, the devil is in the details. These batteries are posing in an application that really demands deep-cycle capabilities, but they hardly qualify for this title.

Instead of being comprised of thick plates, with ample active material, they instead rely on thin-plates, which as noted in the fine detail of their literature, may not be discharged lower than 40% depth of discharge. Thus, the operator is hampered from accessing all of the capacity that the battery has to offer.

In stark contrast, the Fullriver DC Series allows operators to use the full capacity that the battery was built with, without the worry of voiding the warranty or damaging the battery, without needing to stop when the job is halfway done and charge the battery pack.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Traditional and even newer battery technologies often require regular maintenance, such as water refills, corrosion checks, software updates, and wire harness upgrades. However, AGM batteries from Fullriver Battery are truly maintenance-free, eliminating these recurring tasks. This not only reduces labor costs but also minimizes the risk of battery-related issues that could affect the performance of cleaning equipment.

Enhanced Reliability

Battery reliability is crucial for floor cleaning operations, especially in environments where consistent performance is necessary. Fullriver Battery’s innovative technology ensures that their batteries deliver dependable power, reducing the likelihood of unexpected failures. This reliability translates to more efficient and effective cleaning operations.

Advanced AGM Technology

Fullriver Battery utilizes Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) technology, which offers several advantages over traditional lead-acid batteries. AGM batteries are spill-proof, have a longer lifespan, and can withstand deeper discharge cycles. These features make them ideal for demanding floor cleaning applications.

High Cycle Life

One of the standout features of Fullriver Battery’s products is their high cycle life. This means the batteries can be charged and discharged many times before their performance starts to degrade. For floor cleaning equipment, this translates to fewer battery replacements and lower long-term costs.

Faster Charging Capability

In addition to long operational times, the ability to recharge quickly is a significant benefit. Fullriver Battery’s products are designed for faster charging, allowing floor cleaning equipment to be back in operation sooner. This is particularly useful in busy commercial environments where time is of the essence. Charge with up to 25% of the battery’s rated capacity.

Consistent Performance

With reliable and long-lasting batteries, floor cleaning equipment can maintain consistent performance throughout its operational life. The extensive quality control measures that are observed in our factory guarantee every battery will have the same long-life and resilience as the next. This consistency ensures that cleaning tasks are completed to a high standard every time, contributing to overall efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Investing in high-quality batteries from Fullriver Battery can lead to a lower total cost of ownership for floor cleaning equipment. The reduced need for maintenance, fewer replacements, and decreased downtime all contribute to cost savings over the equipment’s lifespan.


Innovations in battery technology are playing a pivotal role in enhancing the efficiency and reliability of floor cleaning equipment. Fullriver Battery’s advanced AGM batteries provide extended operational times, reduced maintenance, and consistent performance, making them an ideal choice for the industry. By investing in these innovations, businesses can achieve greater efficiency and lower long-term costs, ensuring their cleaning operations run smoothly and effectively.
