TorkLift's battery box has exceeded my expectations. It houses four 100AH lithium-ion batteries that are maintained by the attached solar panel. The box was installed in minutes on my trailer and locks keeping the batteries safe from theft. The quality of the material and the workmanship are first rate. By using some additional solar panels I can now boon dock for much longer periods of time.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


I am so thrilled with this battery box. I was a little concerned about how well it's size would do on my relatively small 16+ foot trailer. However, it fits great and the quality of the box is excellent and worth the investment. If I had one suggestion for improvement, it would be to include side wall liner to protect against accidental sparking while the user is trying to (clumsily) connect several batteries inside the box. However, I highly recommend.

Used on my boat trailer to secure the battery for a power winch install. This is the way to go over hand winching.

Package was delivered early which was very helpful. etrailer.com always provides great customer service.
The product was as expected and came with all parts and instructions. The battery box was easy to install and fit into the area on my trailer as expected. This is a super product for adding additional batteries to a travel trailer.

Box works great, but it will not shut properly and allow
It to be locked. The tabs are not correctly cut out and welded. Luckily it is being used on my property and not a movable trailer so I don’t have to worry about it being stolen.


Comments
The Torklift box definitely should be able to lock. I will have customer service reach out to you to look at warranty for the box.

I like this box a lot, but when it arrived it was bent some, which made it difficult to get the lid off. I wanted to start using it and it would have been a hassle to return it, so I deal with it. After installation (and battery installed) I almost never take the lid off, so it doesn’t matter that it is bent. The lock is a little difficult to operate because of the bend. For the cost of this it should be perfect!

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


I leave my trailer in a remote location for six months of the year. I wanted the security of a lockable box for my batteries. I purchased the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box, converted my trailer to two x 6 volt batteries and added the solar panel. Super great choice. The batteries are trickle charged when I am away and box is super secure! Installation was easy. I had to purchase two extension arms for the box as my spot was behind my gas tanks. Called the team a etrailer and they quickly the additional hardware. I also called about solar charging of the batteries. This team is super knowledgable and offered a tremendous amount of information.

This has been a great purchase and I have shared with my fellow campers too!

Thanks guys for all the help!


Comments
It has been a super product. I think that the only weak link is the connector from the panel to the outside of the box. That is clearly showing UV damage. I do not know if any of your customers ever used the external female plug to the battery for anything else - I did and found the box is wired backwards based on RED being hot! I did check all my wiring to make sure red is to positive inside the box. Since I dry camp, I bring in 30-40 gallons of water per trip. I purchased a 12v self priming water pump and proceeded to connect the same type trailer connector to my pump Did not want to have to keep opening the box up. To my surprise the pump ran backwards. I used the alligator clips to the battery and the pump ran correctly. I determined that female connector on the outside of the box is not wired with red to the positive. I simply reversed my connection and the pump runs correctly now. Great product. Wish you had a ventilated security box for my honda e2000 generator.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


No more wanting to take the travel trailer out and go to find the batteries dead or even worse stolen. I would absolutely say this lockable battery box with solar panel is a great product and very well built. Even before I installed this on my travel trailer the sun was hitting the solar panel at an angle in the garage and I tested the for voltage, (19 volts DC). I was totally sold on the ability of this solar panel, the solar panel was in my garage and not in direct sunlight. Although I could have installed this box with all supplied parts and hardware I took it a step further, cut some angle iron and welded the angle iron mounts on top of the frame. Turned out real nice and looks real nice too! This box looks like it should have come with my travel trailer manufacturer. Very happy costumer, feel secure about the ability to lock up my batteries and they stay charged too!


Comments
Thank you for following up on your products. We are very happy with our purchase and so glad that your products are such good quality. Have had many camping friends ask questions about were we purchased our secure battery box and we just had to share! As we travel around the state parks and camp grounds we always have people asking us were we got this setup, hope this helped your sales go up. We just know everyone is as happy as we are and thank you again for such a nice product!

I put this on the tongue of the travel trailer and put 4 Battleborn GC1000s in it. No issues like interference with sharp turns. Looks good too.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


Overall good product but have made my own improvements which, for the price, cost it a star. I did add some stainless steel security screws in place of some of the aluminum rivets. I also had to seal around the edge were the diamond plate attaches to the main frame. The diamond plate makes a gap and it takes on a lot of water in the rain, especially when driving in the rain. Lastly I had to replace the liner they provide with some outdoor carpet. The liner which is supposed to neutralize spilled battery acid was getting a white sticky powder from all the water the box was taking on. Since I only use non-spillable batteries, the outdoor carpet is doing a much better job.

A year of owning it through new England weather and it still looks like new! Used self tapping screws to mount directly on frame. Had to use 2x4 pieces to keep battery from moving since I have a slightly smaller battery

The battery box was pretty beat up, but once I got it straightened back out it works as advertised. Quality piece.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


It did not fit in the space behind my propane tanks and the stabilizer bar supports. I had to have it retrofitted by an RV repair shop and they installed it at a 30 degree angle. I would not have bought it if I knew it was not going to fit flat. Make 100% sure if you buy one that you have enough room first. It cost me $xxx to get mine installed.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


Earlier this year I decided to upgrade my DC Power systems on my travel trailer. The project included two roof mounted 160Watt solar panels, 6volt golf cart batteries, and a 2kW AC Inverter. I chose the Torklift 5 battery security box because I needed to fit in 4 @ 6 volt deep cycle golf cart batteries. With this box, which can contain up to 5 batteries, I installed 4 golf cart batteries, and used the divider to create a separate section for my power junction and switch box. This was extra convenient because I wanted a secure space to install the source / disconnect switch and 300Amp fuse for my 2,000 watt inverter. (See pictures)

I had plenty of room to install an A/B/Both/Off marine switch, a common bus, and the 300 amp class T fuse block, safely segregated from the battery compartment.

The solar keeps the batteries topped off at all times, and the inverter will power everything in the coach except the Air Conditioning (which in Alaska I never use).

The Battery box fit perfectly between the twin propane tanks and the forward bulkhead of the coatch body. The securely locking cabinet will prevent theft of the batteries while in storage.

Love it !

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


I'm using this as a battery box for my custom truck. I built a bracket to mount it to the inside of the frame. The box is ok. Upon opening the lid I found a couple of deep scratches on the back of one of the diamond plate walls. I get it... it's inside the box and out of view, but it still bothers me a little. The lid is finicky. When I rotate it down to close it, I have to "jiggle and wiggle" it before it is able to slide into the close (locking) position. My last gripe (so far) is the huge sticker with the TorkLift logo that's stuck to the front of the box. I paid a fortune for this thing, and there's no way I'm going to advertise for them on top of it all. It took a lot of effort (heat, goo gone, etc) to get that thing off. That alone is what motivated me to come on to review it. I also believe it is over-priced for what you get. After seeing it, holding it, and adapting it for my requirements... I should have just built one myself.

Nice secure box for the battery. I did change out the lock to a barrel lock which matched my other locks on my trailer. But the box itself is really nice and had enough room for the batter and the shunt for my battery monitor.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


Nice battery box, I have four golf cart 6V batteries, and they fit perfectly. If you use the divider there is room for other equipment like a charge controller, etc. I am using this for a small solar power system. I had to work with the lock a little to make it work, I shortened the strike lever and bent a little bit but no big deal. Nice product.

Review from a similar PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


I have 4 Trojan T-105 6 volt batteries installed in this box. They fit nicely with a little room at each end, ( as it is designed for up to 5 ). I installed a couple of 2x2 aluminum angles to keep the batteries in position. The box is great, keeps my batteries securely anchored and safely stored out of sight. The box sizing was a perfect fit behind my propane tanks. The lock on the box was a little sticky but I ground the tab down a bit and it works fine now. The aluminum checker plate has not oxidized and the black wrinkle finish is tough and durable. Just don't try to wax it. I'm still trying to get the wax out of the little grooves :)
5 stars all the way.

This battery box worked out perfectly. Greg was awesome in helping me figure what I needed. Just to help clarify, the box does come with a 8amp power regulator. It's hidden under the solar panel and you have to remove the panel from the lid to see it, otherwise you would not know it's there.

  • Does Solar Panel of TorkLift PowerArmor Need to Disconnect When Attached to Battery Charger
    Basically nothing happens or has to happen if the batteries connected in the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box # TLA7710RS also end up connected to a charger. The solar panel would not get damaged and the batteries would not get overcharged.

    When the solar panel of the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box - 6V and 12V Batteries # TLA7710RS has direct sunlight it is capable of producing 10 watts of power to charge your battery bank. If you wired the charger up in series like your batteries are currently it would work on all of them. 10 watts isn't exactly a high charge but if the batteries are stored in good condition and fully charged and this would have access to a lot of sunlight it would keep them topped off.

    You'd want to install the 8-Amp Regulator for TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Battery Boxes # TLA7715 to the underside of the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box # TLA7710RS. This will allow you to open the lid to view the condition of the batteries and will protect it from elements.

  • Can Wire Extenders be Made to Add Length to Torklift Solar Panel Tool Boxes
    Since there isn't a longer wire extender available for the Torklift solar panel battery boxes your best option will be to make one. This won't be difficult as basically all you need to do is splice in two new wires to the length you need. You'd want to use 12 gauge wire like part # 12-1-1 (sold by foot) spliced into the current wires. For butt connectors then we have the part # DW05745-5 for a set of 5.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for Solar and Vehicle Charged Trailer Batteries with Inverter
    I can absolutely help you with this trailer. First, I recommend using the etrailer 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # e99011 along with ring terminals # 44-5310A. This will easily allow you to convert your 4-way wiring and also add your trailer brakes using # 10-1-1. Then you can use the 10 inch # AKEBRK-35-SA for the 4 hole mounting flange or 12 inch # AKEBRK-7-SA brake assemblies for the 5 bolt mounting flange.
