Video Transcript for Review of TorkLift Battery Boxes - Marine Battery Box,Trailer Battery Box,Camper Battery Box - TLA77

Today we're gonna look at the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Single Locking Battery Box. This is gonna be a great option for your enclosed trailer, marine trailer, really any time where you're gonna have your batteries mounted onto your trailer and you need to keep them secure. Not only is it gonna keep our batteries from being messed with, but it also is going to provide a solar panel on the top of our box to keep our batteries charged while we're traveling. This is going to maintain that charge to boost the life of our batteries, and it also helps to bring our batteries back from about 50% life. So if they're depleted pretty far down to about that 50% mark, we can bring them back to a full charge with our solar panel. That is permanently mounted to the top of our lid here.

We'll also have our wiring connection. It's gonna be a waterproof connection, so we don't have to worry about any shorts or anything like that. It's just a little plug that goes into the side of the box, and then if you are not using that you can always unplug it and put the little cap over the top to keep any water or debris from getting in there.Now, again, this top is going to be locking. It comes with two keys. If you lock the box, you can see we can't move our lid to take that off, so no one can get in there and mess with our batteries.

Unlock it, now we can slide it over, tip it back and remove it. You can see our screws there at the top holding our solar panel in place. We'll also have our wiring connection inside there. The one end is gonna have a ring terminal, that's gonna connect to our negative side of our battery and then this side with that little red and yellow connector is going to go to our fuse holder there. It comes to that fuse holder, and a 10 amp fuse so that we can make sure that we're protected there.

And then if I tip the box back, you can see that we'll have a hole at the back that's going to allow any wires to come out of the box. Makes it easy to route everything out. And then at the very bottom, we'll have a little felt pad for our batteries to sit on.Pull that back and see we'll have several slots in the bottom of that box, which are gonna serve a couple different purposes. It's gonna allow for venting, to keep any heat or gas buildup inside our box, and then it also allows a couple mounting positions for our batteries as well and for our box itself. We get an assortment of hardware to mount this up, whether it's on an A frame trailer or whatever we're mounting it to, along with a couple brackets to get it mounted up.

It does come with instructions listing out a couple options as far as the mounting position to make it a little easier to get that installed. Again, that comes with your kit. So we don't have to worry about our boxes overheating, our batteries overheating inside our box there. The built in tabs on the box, we're gonna make sure that that locks really securely into place and then this is gonna be made of a durable steel on these black portions, and then it's gonna have a heavy gauge bright tread diamond plate aluminum, so it's gonna make the box overall more lightweight than it would be if it was just solid steel, and that also is going to be rustproof.This product is made in the USA and as far as the dimensions, the outside going from the longest point here is gonna be 17 and three quarters of an inch long, and then eight and 13/16th inches wide, and 12 and seven 16th inches tall. The solar panel is gonna have a power of 10 watts, and this does have a limited lifetime warranty from TorkLift. So overall, this is gonna be a great addition to your trailer, whether it's a marine trailer or a boat trailer application, or really anything where you're out on the road to help keep your batteries safe and lasting for a long time. And that's gonna do it for our look at the TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Single Locking Battery Box.

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. 729256

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

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


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

Review from a similar TorkLift PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


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

Review from a similar TorkLift 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! 398868


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.

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

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

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!

So far so good. Easy to install. A little pricey. Will have to see how well it holds up to use and abuse. Hopefully it will turn out to be worth the money. Fast delivery. Will update after a little use. Way too early to tell how long it'll last and if the solar function works as promised. 719360

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. 718929

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

Review from a similar TorkLift PowerArmor in Battery Boxes


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

The issue is that the your vehicle wiring may not be rated high enough to wire it to a 7-way and you risk overloading your truck's wiring.

The same would go for the marine battery sizes I found. As long as it's a standard 12 volt marine or automotive battery, this box will accommodate it nicely.

  • Adding a Second Trailer Battery to Power Trailer Accessory Lights
  • While you can add a second battery to power lights, this is going to require a second, 12 volt auxiliary battery; this is the same concept you were thinking of but a breakaway system battery isn't going to have the power or amp hours needed for your lights. Doing this is fairly simple as you will just need to start by mounting Battery Box # 329-HM318BKS to your trailer frame with some self-tapping screws and washers, like you can see in the linked video review of this box.
