Choosing the right battery size—and the charger to complement it—can certainly be confusing. The reason there's not a straightforward answer is due to the fact that most companies don't have a straightforward material handling operation. Each operation is unique in its own way, which dictates battery and charger needs. That means "size," in many ways, is relative.
