The only Portable battery box on the market with 7 Stage AC & DC Charging built in

The ArkPak seven stage smart charger is based on an advanced software program that monitors your battery. 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

Smart charge will select from the following cycles to optimise your battery’s performance.

Stage 1: Testing - Checks the battery capacity when the ArkPak is first turned on and predicts the hours left until fully charged.
Stage 2: Charge - commences recovery of battery back to peak voltage. Charges the battery up to a set voltage at which point the battery is approximately 95% charged. Please note if you are using an external charging source (e.g. solar panel) the screen will show “external cycle” after a few minutes of charging since the internal smart charger is bypassed.
Stage 3: Bulk - Period just before boost when volts are constant.
Stage 4: Boost - Peak charge for maximum performance. Battery is charged for 1.5 hours at constant voltage. At the end of boost the battery is 100% charged.
Stage 5: Resting - Allows the battery to consolidate after boost. The ArkPak ceases charging and allows the battery to rest while allowing voltage to drop to float voltage.
Stage 6: Float - Maintains performance and prolongs battery life. Battery is continually monitored and voltage is maintained at 13.5V (13.7V for lithium iron phosphate) by automatically adjusting charge current for 500 hours.
Stage 7: Re-Awaken - Exercising the battery and avoiding sulphation build-up. After 500 hours of conditioning the charger automatically returns to charge cycle.

Charging the Battery using Solar Panels (not supplied) You can charge the battery via the external terminals using a solar panel array. To do this the isolator switch must be in the ‘on’ position. The smart charge PCB will be bypassed with this configuration so there will be no control over battery voltage. It is important to use an external voltage regulator (not supplied) when using solar panels. The main data screen will show “external cycle” after a few minutes of charging. In this case the time left figure is not displayed and the normal charging stages are bypassed.

Charging the Battery with an External Charger using the External Terminals or Accessory Sockets Connecting the battery via the external terminals or accessory sockets to an external charging source can be done as long as your charging source is regulated. The reason is because this method bypasses the internal smart charger. The main data screen will show “external cycle” after a few minutes of charging in this case.

The ArkPak AP730P 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, the Arkpak AP730P has a built-in 300W PURE SINE WAVE 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.

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.

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 Lead 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 AP730P?
The ArkPak has a built in 300W PURE SINE WAVE Inverter

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 AP730P 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 AP730P, 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.
