DC Powered Vacuum Lifters
12 Volt Battery Powered Lifters for Applications where Standard Power is Not Available
ANVER’s Battery Powered Vac-Pack Vacuum Generators contains the same features as the standard Electric Powered Vac-Pack Vacuum Generators but include a rechargeable 12 Volt DC battery, making it suitable for handling non-porous loads. It is commonly used for special applications where AC power is not readily available below the hook. Two main standard generators can be easily mounted to hundreds of potential lifting pads and beams. They recharge with standard 115 V AC power. We have recently redesigned these Vac-Packs with the latest new pumps, controls and batteries and they work better than ever. Contact factory for recommendations based on your application.
If you are considering a battery system make sure you are informed. Get the specifications and compare them to a standard lifter. Our years of experience tells us that a standard lifter is usually a better choice (cheaper, faster and more reliable) in all but a few applications.

Some Information about Battery Powered Vacuum Lifters:
When other alternatives won’t work
Fine for worksite Glass Handling
Battery powered lifters are generally not suitable for semi-porous or porous loads as these lifters require considerably larger, higher powered vacuum pumps with correspondingly larger, massive battery arrays. Our larger BAE1-GEN2 battery Vac-Pack uses a 3.2 CFM Pump and a 75 amp hour battery which is fairly large. Going above that gets expensive fast.
OK for smooth stone handling but marginal for rough stone.
If, however, you need a lifter in the field, a battery unit is worth considering. Battery powered lifters are best suited for jobsite installation work in the glass and polished stone industries, as forklift attachments, and for other specific applications where a power source is not available.
Battery lifters which use foam pads are generally of marginal use; if the surface is not too rough, they can work, however with a slightly rougher surface they will not.
Battery lifters are not Production Grade nor recommended for the Metals or other Sheet and Plate Industries
All Battery Lifters are slower to attach require more maintenance and are more expensive.
The Battery’s size and estimated duty cycle is limited. Pulling a vacuum severely taxes all battery units. You will find most have but a few hours at most of usability per day. Any standard powered unit will out-perform a battery unit multiple times over for usually far less.
Battery powered lifters are more expensive and difficult to maintain, as they require more complicated electrical components and power controls. All batteries can die if not properly maintained. Instances of battery failures are lessened when equipment is used regularly.
We build battery lifters for appropriate applications but you should realize the technologies current limitations. We build battery vacuum lifters using the latest battery power technology. This technology is improving but still has major limitations for vacuum lifting.
