Don’t worry about battery life with HiddenPower and ExtendedPower

HP-boxBefore the installationWe love hearing installation stories from our customers, especially when they add extensions and more layers to the stories they have already shared with us. When we originally featured Blanco1 in this blog, he had just received and unpackaged his Torklift HiddenPower and was excited to get it installed. This time, we are sharing his story and thoughts about the installation of his HiddenPower and what he thinks about it now that he’s used it. Here’s what forum user Blanco1 previously said about the HiddenPower: “What’s awesome about it is that it bolts inside the frame rails under the truck and saving me what limited space I have above.”

Now that his HiddenPower battery installation is complete, here's what Blanco1 has to say about his new HiddenPower:

“I personally think this was a great and yet simple idea, I never would have thought of and when I learned about it, I had to get it. Thanks Torklift.”
                               –Blanco1, Rv.net

There we go again, thinking outside of the box, or in this case, underneath the box.

hidden-power-battery-mountThe installed HiddenPowerAs an added bonus, you can also get the HiddenPower Wire Harness like Blanco1 did and “tie it into the main charging wire which feeds the 7 pin connectors located both in the bed of the truck and by the tow hitch.” This kind of wiring for batteries also allows for a quick disconnect of the HiddenPower battery to help aid in future battery maintenance by getting it off the truck in literally less than 2 minutes as well as tying in to your trucks charging system.
