Ark Pak Portable Power

When it comes to needing power in remote locations, Ark Corporation in Australia has been supplying it for over 30 years. The ArkPak is the culmination of years of R&D, product testing and Australian ingenuity.

Portable 12V Power

Place a 12V battery inside, and the ArkPak becomes a 12V battery charger, a portable power station, a battery management system and a dual-battery system all rolled into one - which can be re-charged in 4 ways, including DC-DC from your vehicle when you're on the move.

The ArkPak has space for up to a group 31 130 Amp hour battery offering a lot of power at your fingertips. With a 130 amp hour battery the ArkPak can run a 40L fridge for up to 168 hours keeping your beer and food cold for days.

The ArkPak has two (2) 10 amp 12V sockets to allow for multiple 12V devices to be charged. Further to this the ArkPak also has a 2.1 amp USB socket for easy charging of your phone.

110V Portable Power

The ArkPak also has a 110V plug built into the system. This allows you to run a small TV, portable power tools or even charge your laptop. This is where the two variants differ. The ArkPak 715 offers an internal 150W inverter for the 110V whereas the ArkPak 730 offers an internal 300W inverter.

ArkPak 715 v ArkPak 730

There are a number of Key differences between the 715 and the 730. The first is that of battery compatibility. The ArkPak 730 has been designed to be compatible with not only the more common batteries but also with Lithium Ion (LiFePO4) and Calcium batteries. These batteries, while more expensive, are based on more modern concepts and offer superior storage, charge and discharge properties.

The second key difference between the two is the inverter size. The ArkPak 730 has an inbulit 300W inverter compared to the 150W on offer in the ArkPak 715. This allows for the use of more demanding 110V appliances. No it still wont run your wifes hairdryer. 

The final Key difference between the two items is the AC charging capacity. The ArkPak 730 has a 7 amp AC charging capacity in comparison to the 4 amp on the 715. For many this wont make much of a difference but if you are intending to charge at home only then the 730 with charge significantly faster.

There are a number of other minor differences between the two units such as; time tracking technology, Net Watts display and a multifunction display. And of course the ArkPak 715 comes with nice silver highlights compared to the all black 730. 

Charging your ArkPak

The ArkPak 715 and ArkPak 730 are both capable of charging by four (4) different methods. The most common method and the easiest method is by using the supplied DC-DC charger and plugging in to your vehicles 12V socket. The battery can also be charged directly through the use of either the Anderson Plug or the external battery terminals. This means that using your preexisting solar panel to charge your ArkPak will be fine.
