Why it’s time to switch to rechargeable marker lights

Categories: Business Case

In a tight economy, every business is looking for ways to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and maintain their competitive edge. If you’re a haulage operator, one way to achieve all of these goals is by switching to rechargeable marker lights.


Traditionally, marker lights have been powered by disposable batteries, which can be costly and inefficient. Thankfully, there is a better option available: rechargeable magnetic marker lights. While the initial investment in these lights may be higher than traditional marker lights, the long-term cost savings can be substantial.

At Illumiload, we have crunched the numbers and found that a fleet of trucks that replace 16 batteries per truck each month could save thousands of dollars in the first year alone by switching to rechargeable magnetic marker lights. Think about it – the cost of disposable batteries can quickly add up, not to mention the time and effort required to replace them. By switching to rechargeable marker lights, you can reduce your operating costs, increase your productivity, and minimise your environmental impact.

One of the biggest advantages of rechargeable marker lights is their ability to increase your fleet’s productivity. With disposable batteries, downtime is inevitable when batteries die and need to be replaced. This can result in delays and reduced efficiency. However, with rechargeable magnetic marker lights, you can easily recharge the batteries. This means you can spend less time worrying about your equipment and more time focusing on your business.

“After 15 years of moving oversize loads dealing with extra lights that were once on ropes, then to ratchet straps, then battery powered, Illumiload has gone above with and beyond with a hard-shell case filled with 16 magnetic rechargeable lights. This is by far the best set I’ve ever used, and they can sit in my toolbox on charge and ready to go! I’ve already ordered another set!” – Robbie Taylor, MTS Trucking.

In addition to cost savings and increased productivity, rechargeable magnetic marker lights are also more sustainable. Did you know that Australia produces around 3,300 tonnes of lithium-ion battery waste each year? Using rechargeable marker lights can help reduce this waste. Choosing rechargeable lights extends the life of the light’s battery and is a simple way to demonstrate your commitment to sustainable business practices.

Finally, rechargeable magnetic marker lights require less maintenance than traditional marker lights, which means less time and money spent on frequent battery replacements and proper disposal. By making the switch to rechargeable lights, you’ll free up resources that can be directed towards other critical aspects of your business.

In conclusion, switching to rechargeable magnetic marker lights is a smart investment for any haulage operator looking to optimise their operations and maintain their competitive edge.
