Availability of Insulated Battery Box for Lithium Batteries in the Cold

Question:

Are your battery boxes insulated to keep a lithium battery above freezing in colder weather or would I have to build rack inside camper? Thanx

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 allows you to draw power from both your alternator and solar but it also has smart technology inside that reads your specific battery type and adjusts how it operates so that your battery can be charged 100%. For a solar panel you can use the Go Power # 34273836 which is rated for 10 Watts like the solar panel that came with the box you were looking at.
