SUMNER, Wash., — Torklift International released a product allowing customers to have spare battery power whether they want to run their speakers all night or they need to run their lights for some after hours work.
The HiddenPower is a battery mount that attaches underneath the truck body in order to house a spare battery. The battery is tied into the vehicle’s charging system to ensure the driver has a fully charged spare battery at all times.
“Auxiliary batteries were a huge add-on in truck accessory shops in the 60s, 70s and 80s back when it was easy to place an extra battery under the hood of your truck,” said Torklift International VP of Operations Jack Kay. “But as technology expanded for vehicles, more factory-installed products were placed under the hood of the truck resulting in less and less space. Now, there is no space under the hood. The space for the extra battery went away, but the need for the extra battery didn’t go away.”
