Will 2 Interstate 6 Volt Golf Cart Batteries Fit & Charge in a TorkLift PowerArmor Solar Battery Box

Question:

Hello, I have 2 Interstate GC2 232Ah 6 volt golf cart batteries. Will they fit and charge ok in this unit? Thanks

Expert Reply:

Yes, you can charge 2 Interstate 6-volt batteries in the TorkLift PowerArmor solar locking battery box # TLA7708RS. The only thing to really consider is the length, width and height of each battery.

With that said, the internal dimensions this box are 26.50 length x 7.375 width x 12.5625 height (26-1/2 x 7-3/8 x 12-9/16).

Insert the positive and negative battery cables into the box through the 2-inch hole. Connect the positive cable from the camper to the positive terminal on one of the batteries. Install one cable connecting the unused negative terminal on the first battery to the unused positive terminal on the second battery. This configuration will create a 12 volt power source from two 6 volt batteries. Take a look at the diagram I included.

The solar panels will provide power for stored batteries by bringing them back from 50 percent life. There is a lifetime warranty on the aluminum box and 25-years on the solar panel.
