The Beelift from DocMagnet is a permanent-electro battery-operated lifter that has an external battery charger. According to the company, the external battery charger provides assurance that the unit is always charged and is never out of production. This means it does not need to be plugged in overnight to charge. It features push-button technology, anti-demag while under load, a lithium-ion battery, low-battery alarm, tilt sensors and an auto-on function for remote operation. There is also a built-in degaussing feature for removing more residual magnetism that standard lifters may leave behind.
Lifter units come in standard sizes of 500 lbs, 1,000 lbs, and 2,000 lbs.
