ArkPak 715 Portable Battery Box
The ArkPak 715 is a super simple portable power option for your 4 wheel drive, camper trailer, or really anyone who loves to camp off the beaten track and wants power on the go to charge your favourite devices, a portable fridge, led lights etc. It comes complete with everything ready for you to just add your battery of choice, and will accept up to a 130 amp hour, group 31 size battery. You can use either a flooded deep cycle battery like in many RV’s, a Gel battery, or our recommendation for the best performance and versatility in this type of application is to use an AGM battery.
The ArkPak 715 is a great alternative to installing a permanent dual battery setup in your vehicle or RV and comes complete with a 7 stage smart charger that can be charged via 110V main power when at home or whenever power is available in camp, as well with the included 12V DC/DC charger that you can connect to your vehicles 12V socket while on the road. The DC charger will charge at up to 7 amps, while the AC wall charger charges at up to 4 amps.
You just insert your chosen battery, power the unit up, and the on board ARK smart charger does the rest. Super easy! The smart charger automatically senses the battery type and adjusts the charge algorithm to optimize the battery charge. When your not using the ArkPak 715 you can leave it on the AC charger at home and it will keep your battery topped up and maintained in good health, ready for your next adventure. The on board LCD screen will provide details about the battery charge state, and the current level of charge in the battery.
Getting power out is easy. On the front of the ArkPak 715 is a master key switch that turns power on to the power outlets. It features 2x 10 amp 12V cigarette plug style outlets, which is where you can plug in your portable electronics using a USB adapter, 12V lights, a portable fridge, or any other 12V accessories you like to use around camp. The ArkPak 715 also features a handy 150W modified sine wave inverter that is great for charging a laptop, camera or drone battery, or other small accessories that need 110V. The inverter also has a 5V USB plug on it for charging USB accessories.
The Ark PaK has terminal posts on one end of the box and an Anderson Plug connection at the other end… both of which can be used to hook up 12V gear, or to connect a solar panel or other external charge source to the Ark Pak. It’s important to note that when using these external charge points, you’re connecting directly to the battery inside and bypassing the ArkPak’s onboard charger, so you’re solar panel should have its own charge regulator to avoid overcharging the battery. Something most panels come with as standard.
All of the outlets on the ARk Pak are fused with easy to replace automotive ATC fuses located under the lid, and the kit includes a simple mounting bracket if you want to mount the unit semi permanently into your setup.
All in all, the ArkPak 715 is a great way to power your camp site or overland adventures when on the go. If you’ve got any questions about the Ark Pay 715, or any ARK products, fire us an email and we’re happy to help!
