Video Transcript for TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Torklift PowerArmor solar locking battery box. This will accommodate two 6-volt or 12-volt batteries and is in a diamond-plate aluminum pattern. Part number is TLA7712RS. The Torklift locking battery box is a perfect solution for charging your batteries, maintaining your batteries and also keeping them safe and secure and attached to your trailer so you won't have to worry about the theft. You'll be able to mount this in many different location, whether it's a trailer frame, an RV, camper bumpers, trucks, or just about anywhere else. As you can see, we've got a nice large solar panel here.

This is going to create 10 watts of charging power for us, so when we've got two batteries or a single battery in here that's going to be able to charge up any batteries that have about 50% life in them yet. It will bring those up to a full charge. It's also going to trickle charge or maintain your batteries while you've got them stores. That way we can maximize the life. Now the kit's also going to come with two battery straps that you're going to need to hold down your dual batteries. We're using a single setup here so we've just got the one installed.

That's going to hold in place nicely as we're traveling. We've got four slots in the bottom of the box that will allow our battery straps to go down and through. We've got a very large opening here in the rear that allows for all of our wires to pass through even solid larger battery terminals. Another function of those slots and this larger hole is to provide proper ventilation for our battery so we don't have any issues. Now we've got heavy gauge bright tread aluminum diamond-plate, as you can see here. It's very lightweight and rust-proof.

Our full frame all the way around and our lid is going to be a black powder-coated finish. It's going to be very rugged and very durable. Now they stand behind their products very well at Torklift, too. The box itself is going to offer us a lifetime warranty, so we're never going to have to worry about that. The solar panel they give you a 25-year warranty on it, so they really believe in their products. Now that we've gone over our features let's take a look at how to get our box installed.

We're going to be using a single battery setup. The first step we're going to do is take our battery strap, place it down through the slots in the bottom of the box. Now there is a felt pad here. This felt pad is used to cushion your battery while we're driving around. As you can see, we've cut four small slits on it. These are going to match the four slits on the bottom of the box that allow the straps to come through. We'll just slide this down through the pad and through the slit and then right back up through here on the other side. Now on the way back up you may need to just lift that pad up a little bit, help push it through. It's a snug fit but that's going to be nice for any dirt or debris or anything like that that wants to get up through those slits. Now that we've got that run through let's just set it down here where we're going to be installing it. Now these could be put any number of places. In our case today we're going to mount it right here between the a-frame. This is just for position purposes just so you can get an idea of size. We're not actually going to be physically mounting it for the demo today. These can also be mounted on the underside. You can mount these on the rear bumpers. Really it's a limitless possibility. You can even put them right in the back of your pickup truck if you'd like. With it in place so we know where we want it, now let's place our battery in. Then we'll bring our strap around and we'll secure it. We'll just place the tag end through the middle gap and then push it right back through that outside slot. Then we can pull it down tight. If you notice there it rested on that handle. I like to get it behind the handle or underneath the handle so if it slips off there we're not going to lose that tension. The extra we can just tuck down here out of the way. Nice clean look, our battery is secure. As far as the wires go we've got a large opening right here in the backside, plenty large enough for a standard battery terminal to come right through just like that. Now let us start making our connections. As we put our positive side on or we put our power wire on we also want to install the small piece of wire that has the ring terminal, the quick disconnect, and the inline fuse holder. That will be placed right on our power. We'll tighten that down. Now we'll bring out our pigtail and we'll run the black side that also already has the ring terminal on it over to the ground side on our battery. As you'll see, we've got all the mounting hardware that we're going to need to get this affixed onto our trailer. We also have a couple of plates. Now these plates are going to make it nice for tying into maybe the frame rail of our trailer or wherever we need that additional support. They're slotted to give us plenty of mounting options. We could bring them right here along the side, whatever's going to work best in your particular situation. Now for our final connection we'll hook up our quick disconnect here. That will be the last one you want to do. The last thing you want to do is connection power into our source. Now these wires that we've connected, those are going to run right over to the solar charger to that quick disconnect. If you're running your batteries in series or if you're going to run two 12-volt batteries and tie them in to make a 24-volt system, the black wire you want coming out on your ground terminal post and your power wire you'll want to be on the power wire that runs out to your camper. Now for securing our batteries we just place our locking lid down and on. Then we'll push it towards the lock side just like that. Turn our key. As you see, our battery box is secure. Then we'll just make our quick connection here and that's going to allow us to run that power coming from our solar panel right into our batteries. Now that we've got our battery installed and secured, that will complete today's look at the Torklift PowerArmor solar locking battery box, part number TLA7712RS. .

This box was very easy to install on my 2016 Shadow Cruiser 24' trailer. The box barely fit between the rails on the battery tray, which made the installation very easy. I had to take some seamers and open up the angle a little bit for it to fit in there. It worked out though, because it is nice and snug in the battery tray. The instructions were very helpful with offering 3 other options on how to install the box if it won't fit in the battery tray on your specific trailer, and it provides very good hardware for each option. The instructions also have a very easy to read wiring diagram for using one or two 12 volt batteries or two 6 volt batteries. I'm excited to use the solar trickle charger on my two new 6 volt golf cart batteries. The two 6 volt batteries fit inside the box perfectly, and there was enough room to move them to one side so you could stick your hand down in the bottom of the box to grab the battery hold down straps. I'm thinking I will be very happy with this battery box. 636177

Easy to install. So far it is working great. Have 2 12 volt batteries installed inside for my camper. and I will see if it is really working in a couple weeks when I go back to check on it and hopefully my batteries will not be dead. 318357

Do you have a question about this Battery Box?


  • Availability of Insulated Battery Box for Lithium Batteries in the Cold
  • None of our battery boxes, like the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box # TLA7712RS, are insulated so you will need to account for that with your Lithium batteries. The particular battery box you were looking at has the solar panel to help keep it charged when your trailer isn't connected to your tow vehicle. If you are looking for a way to add something like that then I highly recommend installing the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D because it not only...
