      Whether you need portable power on the work site or a second   battery to run the fridge, an auxiliary battery box is the perfect solution.  The  ArkPak AP-730 provides 12V and 240V power, can be used as a 12V battery  charger,  battery management system, and a dual-battery system all in one.

      The ArkPak AP-730 is compatible with all 4WD batteries,  including  lead acid, calcium, gel and AGM of up to 130Ah in size. A time-saving  feature is  the easy step-by-step guide that takes you through the new battery  set-up  process, remembers the last battery you used, and will warn you if  there’s a  fault with the battery. Once you’ve dropped in your battery, ARK  tells us you’ll  get up to three days of continuous 240V power, or up to seven  days of 12V power  from a 130Ah deep-cycle battery based on the power  consumption of a 37L  fridge/freezer.

      If you’ve got someone in the family who simply won’t leave home   without their slice of technology, a built-in 300W inverter provides 240V power   without the need to run an external inverter or additional cabling. Power is   delivered through the 240V mains socket, two 12V cigarette lighter ports, a 5V   USB connection, external high-current terminals or via the 50A Anderson plug,   all of which can be used simultaneously.

      As well as being a portable power station, the ArkPak has a   built-in 7AMP seven-stage Smart Charger. It’s designed to regulate the charge  to  the internal 12V battery throughout its life just by leaving it plugged in  at  home. So you don’t have to worry about checking the battery every few hours,  the  ArkPak has a Time Tracker function. It’s essentially an on-board  microprocessor  that constantly assesses the state of the battery. It tells you  both the  percentage of battery remaining, and the number of hours until it’s  full during  charging via an interactive LCD screen.

      A beaut feature for those struggling to find room for a second   battery under your bonnet is the now inlcuded DC-DC 12V Car Charger that lets   you charge up and run your ArkPak via your vehicle’s 12V lighter socket. What   this means is you can charge your ArkPak using the 4WD’s alternator just like a   conventional dual-battery system.

      If you’re staying in the one place   for a while and don’t want to flatten your starting battery, you can also   recharge your ArkPak using the 240V charging adaptor, the Anderson plug, or   even via solar panels.

      Important: Appliance  guide is based  on the ArkPak being fitted with a 12V 130ah deep cycle  battery.  Rating and running times are a guide only, dependent on the  use and  conditions.

      What size battery can it take?
      Internal dimensions of the case as follows 330mm  L x 180mm W x  240mm H. Call us for price

      How long will it last?
      It depends on the overall current draw of your  appliances, we  tested the ArkPak fitted with a 130Ah battery and it ran a 37L  Portable  fridge for up to 7 days.

      What is the built in charger?
      The built in charger is now a 7amps for both AC &  DC now on the  ArkPak AP-730 smart charger designed to charge, condition and  maintain the  battery. This charger works from 240V mains power or through your  vehicles  12V socket with the now included DC-DC car charge adaptor.


      What types of batteries are compatible with the ArkPak?
      The ArkPak can accept Lead Acid, GEL, AGM, LiFePO 4 and Calcium   batteries. With the initial setup of the ArkPak simply choose your battery  type  and size and the ArkPak will tailor the usage and charge rate based on  your  choice.

      What type of inverter is in the ArkPak AP-730?
      The ArkPak has a built in 300W continuos 600w  peak modified sine  wave inverter.

      Will the modified sine wave inverter damage my electronic  equipment?
      Unfortunately there is a misconception about  modified sine wave (MSW)  inverters in the market; in short most portable  electronic equipment that  you will be using with the ArkPak while out camping,  use a transformer which  generally converts your home’s 240V AC power to 12V DC  then charges the  device. So whether you are using a Modified Sine Wave inverter  or a Pure  Sine Wave (PSW) inverter, the appliance’s transformer is giving the   electronic device the necessary current and voltage it requires to operate   safely.

      Can I charge from my vehicles 12V outlet with the AP-730?
      Yes, you can charge the ArkPak from your  vehicle’s 12V socket  utilizing then now included DC-DC car charge adaptor. You  need to ensure  your vehicle’s 12V socket is rated to 120W and fused at 15amps.

      How much is the DC-DC car charge adaptor?
      Now included with the Arkpak AP-730 version      

      Can I charge from Solar Panels?
      Yes, you can connect your solar panels directly  to the top  terminals or accessory socket on the ArkPak AP-730, this method  charges the  battery directly and bypasses the built in charger.  You just need  to make  sure you have a solar charge controller so that it stops charging your   battery when it reaches the maximum recommended voltage charge for that  battery.

      Can I charge from my vehicles’ alternator?
      Yes, you can charge from your vehicles’ alternator by setting up the ArkPak  as  an auxiliary battery through a dual battery system, this method charges  the  battery directly and bypasses the built in charger.      

       

      Does my alternator fully charge my batteries?
      Alternators pump out up to 14.1V only, most  batteries require a  charge rate of 14.4 -14.7V to properly give the battery  100% charge. The  built in charger of the ArkPak gives each battery type the  correct charge  rate to ensure the batteries are 100% charged every time.

       

      Can I charge from a generator?     
      Yes, you can charge from a generator using the 240V adaptor or if the  generator  has charging leads you can connect them to the top terminals on  the ArkPak.       

       

      Can I charge and use the ArkPak at the same time?
      Yes.  All sockets are input-output sockets and can be used simultaneously       

       

      Can I jumpstart vehicles with the ArkPak?
      Yes, you can jumpstart from the ArkPak – provided  the battery you  place in the ArkPak has high cold cranking amps which are  designed to start  vehicles.

       

      What are the external dimensions?      
      440mm L x 240mm W x 330mm H.
