Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Box - 10 Watt Panel - TLA7713

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (4 Customer Reviews)

Replace one of the 10-watt solar panels on your TorkLift PowerArmor solar-powered battery box or retrofit an original PowerArmor box to charge your stored battery using the most inexpensive and plentiful energy source out there.

I added the extra 10 watt solar panel to my TorkLift Power Armor battery box. Installation was fast as the battery box was already pre-drilled for the extra panel. All the hardware and connections were included. My batteries stay maintained and are always ready for the road!




by:

I had previously bought a Forklift PowerArmor Battery Box without the Solar Power Kit. Having decided to add the Solar Kit I ordered the kit and received same in good order as has been my experience with e-trailer. The problem came as I was installing the unit in the box. The directions said to use the machine screws with clips to attach the solar panel to the lid. The trouble was the clips they sent were for sheet metal screws not machine screws. The hardware bag had 4 #8 machine screws and 4 #8 sheet metal screws that were supposed to be used to screw the electrical connector to the battery box except the predrilled holes in the battery box were to large for the screws machine or sheetmetal. I used the sheetmetal screws to hold the solar panel to the lid and ran to the hardware store to purchase 4 stainless steel machine screws,washers and nuts to hold the electrical connector to the battery box. I have no idea if the solar panel is working that's going to be a wait and see deal at this time




by:

Product is great - But I was very displeased to find out that these units sell for $ 109.00 to $ 119.00 on the internet elsewhere. I will not be using etrailer.com in the future.




by:

Just received panel, great service as always. Adding to existing battery box.

  • Is Regulator Needed when Installing Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Box
    For your two batteries you would not need to install any type of regulator with the 10 watt solar panel part # TLA7713. This wouldn't put out enough wattage/amperage that it would require regulating for your batteries. The picture I attached shows it wiring directly to a battery.

I have also included a link to the installation instructions which is where the picture came from.

The shorter cable that attaches to the panel directly is 12 inches long and the cable that attaches to the harness and runs to the battery is 38-1/2 inches.

  • Can the Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Be Used Alongside Other Battery Chargers
    The risk that you run of charging your batteries with multiple sources at once is overcharging them. This can also be an issue with a single source but not likely with what you mentioned because I would be willing to bet each of these has built-in protection form overcharging save for maybe the 12 volt pin on the 7-way but this most likely won't provide enough amps for this to occur. In summary, you can us the Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Box part # TLA7713 while also...

  • Solar Panel Recommendation for Charging Deep Cycle Battery Installed on Trailer
    We don't carry fuse panels or deep cell cycle batteries so those two things you'll have to source elsewhere. Basically what you are wanting to do is very possible but it really comes down to you picking out the best battery for your application. Which is going to be the biggest one you can find. We do have a solar panel option we can help with. I recommend the Solar Power Kit from Torklift # TLA7713. This is a 10 watt panel that will maintain the charge to boost the life of your battery...

  • Using TorkLift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713 with Two 6 Volt Batteries
    The Torklift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713 referenced in your question will work with both 6 volt and 12 volt batteries. You will only need to add an 8-amp regulator # TLA7715 if you are planning on using 4 or more batteries and you are connecting two of the TorkLift Solar Panels. Since you are using two 6 volt batteries, you will not need a regulator. I have attached an image that shows the wiring instructions when using two 6 volt batteries that you might also find helpful.

  • Solar Panels on Utility/Cargo Trailer With Option to Expand
    You'd need a battery on your trailer to power the items you mentioned as a solar panel on a trailer would not have enough power for all of them at any given time. You'd want to use a solar panel like the # TLA7713 to charge that battery as needed but it would not be ideal for powering accessories directly. Refrigerators draw quite a bit of amperage so you'd need a decent battery plus possibly additional panels. With the Y-kit part # TLA7714 you can add more. Each of the # TLA7713 panels...

  • Recommended Solar Battery Charger for Scout Troop Trailer
    For your Scout Troop's new trailer, I recommend taking a look at the TorkLift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713.

The 10 watt panel will maintain a charged battery or can bring a depleted battery back from 50 percent life.

  • Solar Panel Recommendation for Charging Battery On Trailer
    You could use the Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Boxes # TLA7713 to charge the battery you have on your trailer. This won't plug into a 7-way, but if you wired the output wire to a # 30717 you could make it a quick-disconnect style connection.

    What you are seeing on the lid of TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7708R are not holes. They are like plugs/rivets so if you wanted to install a solar panel, # TLA7713, you would have to pop them out first. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

    The TorkLift PowerArmor battery box # TLA7708RS has the following internal dimensions: 26-1/2" long x 7-3/8" wide x 12-9/16" tall. You would have to place your batteries next to each other and measure them to determine if both will fit in this box. Provided the batteries are wired as a 12 volt system the solar panel can charge them. But charging 2 batteries will take twice as long.

You will also need the regulator part # TLA7715. I attached an install video that shows the panel being installed on a similar trailer battery. The breakaway system part # 20099 would be a great option to as it has a charger built into it. I attached an install video for this as well.

  • Considerations for Choosing Solar Panels and Inverter for 16-Foot Enclosed Trailer
    As you consider your needs and establish your budget for a solar power system for your enclosed trailer I recommend you start with a read of the help articles I have linked for you. A ground-up solar install is a significant undertaking and the best results come with careful planning. If you can budget for an all-inclusive high-capacity set-up, like the Go Power Solar Flex Kit # 34275012, you can avoid the issue of ending up with less power than you need.

  • Parts Needed to Convert Van to Conversion Van with Solar Powered Components
    To convert your van into a conversion van we do offer a couple of different products in terms of charging your power sources via solar power. I recommend the 10 Watt Torklift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713. This is a solar panel that can be used to charge 12 volt batteries. You can then use a Power Inverter like the Wagan # WC3720, which will convert your 12 volt DC power to 115 volt AC power. AC power is required for the operation and charging of the electronics in your conversion van. I...

  • How to Charge & Maintain Trailer-Mounted Battery on Dump Trailer
    7-way vehicle wiring can deliver a maintenance charge to keep a charged trailer battery at full charge while you're driving but it will not be able to deliver enough current to re-charge a depleted battery. That will require a shore-power charger like one of the CTEK units, such as # CTEK56353. Another option is a solar panel charger like # TLA7713 which works continuously as long as light is available. For use with one battery you'll also need a 8-amp regulator, part # TLA7715. This...
