Video Transcript for TorkLift Battery Boxes - Trailer Battery Box - TLA7710RS Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box. This is gonna work for 6 and 12 volt batteries, and it comes in a diamond plate aluminum. So this locking box is going to be a really great option to transport your batteries when you're out on the road. It's going to give you the power to maintain a charge in your batteries with the solar panel that's built into the lid. And again, since it is locking, it's gonna keep everything secure so you don't have to worry about any tampering or theft while you're out on the road. It also comes with the hold down straps, a sturdy lid with a built in lock, and it also has access holes in the back for your wiring and hardware.Now again, this is locking.

It comes with two keys. The lock is going to be on this side here. Swing that around so you can see it. And the way that works, you can see there's a little tab here that comes through our box, on the other side there's a little L shaped bracket, so whenever you wanna unlock this, swing this back around. With it locked, that's gonna hold it in place so we can't get in there.

There's no way to pry that open. But as soon as you lock it it's going to allow you to push that lid over, and now we can tip it up to get into our box. There isn't a solid hinge on this, it's just held on the back with tabs. So you wanna be careful when you're taking off that lid that you don't drop it. Of course, you do want to also make sure that you unplug your solar panel before you take this off.

The plug's gonna be on the one inside.So once we take that off. I'll give you a little better look at what's inside. There is a battery mat that comes with this that's inside there right now. And that helps to protect your batteries as there sitting there. So I'll tip this up.

You can see that mat sitting down in there. It's just gonna provide a little extra stability for those batteries, help keep any rain or any debris from getting in there and causing corrosion over time. Move that out of the way to give you a better look at the mounting holes. There's also wiring that comes pre installed for that solar panel. So you're gonna hook up that ring terminal to the negative side of your battery. The end with this little yellow connector will go to a fuse holder, which will go to the positive side of your battery. It does come with the fuse holder.So if we move this out of the way, and get a look at the bottom there you can see all those slats. There's gonna be one at the very edge on either side, as well as several going all the way down. These are gonna serve, kind of, a multi purpose function. These are going to allow us to mount the box to that bumper, or trailer frame, or wherever we're gonna mount this. It's also going to allow us to run the straps through to secure the batteries down, and it also serves as some ventilation to make sure that we have proper air circulation for our batteries. So whenever you get those installed, you'll put this battery mat back over there, and you've got the wiring there as well. In the back there's also two holes on either side to allow you to run the battery cables out, so you don't have to worry about making any holes in addition in here to get your wiring in or out of here as you need it.There are also little notches all along the box on either side. That's for the divider that it comes with, so you can divide this into two. You just want to make sure that the batteries are all on one side. So you can house some other stuff in here, as well, if you'd like. Those dividers, well, it's just one divider, that attaches together. So you get two screws or carriage bolts to connect those together through the square holes and then they just drop down into those slots to divide your box. It does come with the carriage bolts and the wing nuts to connect those. You just wanna make sure that the wing nuts are not on the same side as your batteries, so you don't cause any accidental connection between those two and ground out your battery.It does come with five straps to hold those batteries down. Your fuse holder, and a Y extension for the solar panel, so if you need to run another Y off of there to connect an additional battery that will help you to do that. And we have some different options for our hardware. The self tapping screws that it comes with are going to be for that closed or boxed channel frame. If you're mounting it on there or there's also some hex bolts to mount it if it's an open channel frame that you're mounting it into. Or you do have the option to mount on the little rubber washer over the head of the bolt, and that's just to help prevent any abrasions on the battery mat or causing any contact and damage on your batteries themselves.Now again, this is made of a sturdy aluminum. So it's going to not only be a light weight, but it's also going to resist rust so you don't have to worry about this getting rusty over time or causing any rust spots on your camper, or your truck, or wherever you choose to mount this. As far as locking or re-attaching our lid, just wanna make sure the solar panels are on the right side and then place the lid back over those tabs. Make sure the wiring is out of the way so you don't smash it, same thing with your fingers. That's just gonna drop over, and then you're just going to push it. So there's that little L shaped bracket on this side, so that's going to push in. You might have to press down to get that to go all the way across or all the way in the channel. There it goes. And then once that's in place you can lock it back down. Again, this is going to have a black powder coat for extra durability so you don't have to worry about that lid looking gross over time.And as far as the dimensions on this, the outside dimensions for just the box is going to be 58 1/2 inches long, so from end to end, and then 7 5/8 inches wide, and 12 3/4 inches tall, so from the bottom of the box to the top. With the lid that does increase the length and width of this a little bit. The lid itself is going to be 59 1/2 inches long, and it's going to be 9 5/8 inches wide, so from front to back. The height doesn't change with the lid on it. The access hole in the back is going to be 2 inches in diameter, and the solar panel is going to give you 10 watts of power. This does have a lifetime warranty on the aluminum box and a 25 year warranty on the solar panel itself. And that's gonna do it for our look at the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box.

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. 390009

Review from a similar TorkLift PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


Very easy to read directions with everything I need to get up and going. Just add a couple of cables to the mix and I get my two batteries up and running and keep them charged. Will be using it on my R-Pod trailer while boondoggling. Hoping that the solar panel will keep batteries charged when I'm not using the R-Pod. That way, they will be charged when I'm ready to go. Happy to have it lockable so that there is less of a chance of theft of batteries. 381634

The capacity of the solar panel is only strong enough to maintain a 90 - 100 % charged battery. ANY drain (detectors, radio display panel) on the battery, while in storage, will negate the maintaining power. I disconnect my fully-charged battery before storage. 314074

Perfect. Compact, sturdy, safe, and easily fit onto my trailer A-frame. exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. My two 6-volt batteries, with water filling system fit with ease. Thanks 484401

Review from a similar TorkLift 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 ! 529556

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! 398868

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.

At this time we do not offer an enclosed security box for your Honda e2000 generator at this time.

Review from a similar TorkLift 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! 289329

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 highly recommend the TorkLift Solar Locking Battery Box TLA7708RS. It is well made and protects your batteries from theft. The solar panel maintain a charge as advertised. Changes I would suggest are upgrading the 4 screws on the solar wire entrance port to stainless steel, and providing foam inserts to keep the batteries in place once installed. The battery tie downs provided won't keep the batteries from shifting if travailing on rough roads. I used marine grade connectors/shrink wrap, high end battery jumpers, and wire looms so once installed it is a "forget about it" project until the batteries require replacement down the road. A wire kit providing these items and lengths of various gauge wire would be a good product option for this box. Will upgrade to two 6 volts batteries when these wear out. 184826

Installed this in less than an hour. Good quality, but be warned...the edges around the top of the box are very sharp! The box didn't fit my battery rails as indicated by the dimensions provided, so I had to use a different mounting (alternative provided in the installation instructions). Easily takes two Class 24 batteries. So far not a problem. Might change the lock, since it looks like one of those "everybody" has a key locks. 500594

Purchased a year ago. Great storage and security for my 2 batteries at the front of my travel trailer. Works as advertised. I like the extra storage on one side for my tools and other items that I don't necessarily want to store elsewhere. I put my tools in a large plastic bag, so if moisture gets in (there are some holes on the sides and bottom that are good for air circulation - which I like) the tools don't get wet and rusted. 381825

Great company, horrible product!! The slots cut for the lid to attach to are 1 1/8 to big allowing the lid to slid and making it extremely difficult to align. a piano hinge would make more since. The lid is about an 1/8 to small. It's EXTREMLLY difficult to close and almost impossible to lock! The battery tie down is nothing short of a joke!! It very sad as this company normally does an outstanding job. I've been a customer for a 2 years and will still continue to shop here! 323347
