The New ArkPak Is Rugged Enough for Outdoor Enthusiasts, Yet Clever Enough to Capture a Tech Geek's Attention
Denver, Colo. – December 2, 2013 – The ArkPak isn't just a box that holds a deep cycle battery – it's a 12V battery smart charger, an inverter that provides 120V AC power, a solar energy storage device and a 12V DC power source for everything from game refrigerators to laptop computers. Campers and hunters can use the ArkPak to power their camp site, while computer geeks can use it as a high-capacity uninterruptible power supply.
The secret to the ArkPak is the battery. Unlike other portable power packs, the ArkPak's battery is totally configurable and replaceable. The options are endless.
Because the ArkPak takes all main types and sizes of 12V battery, it's easy to find a deep-cycle marine or RV battery to fit inside. Battery capacity can be as high as 130 amp hours, which is three to four times bigger than comparable products. ( For comparison, Goal Zero's 23000 Yeti 400 has a capacity of 33 amp hours.)
As a portable power unit for a hunting trip, the ArkPak can power a game refrigerator for days without a recharge. As a power supply for a camp site, the ArkPak can be used to charge and recharge tablets and phones. for days. As an uninterruptable power supply, the ArkPak can run a 90W laptop computer for an entire work day (with a 100ah battery installed).
Photographers can use the ArkPak as a power source for a portable studio. Off-road enthusiasts and RV'ers can use the ArkPak as the second battery in a portable dual battery system. Tailgaters can use the ArkPak to run an LCD television while they wait for the game to start.
