With a wide range of 12V battery types & sizes available on the market today, choosing the right battery for your Ark battery box can be confusing without a little help - which is where we come in.
Ark recommend deep cycle batteries for use in our power battery boxes. These will give you the prolonged, steady release of power most people are looking for when camping, boating and 4WD’ing. There are 3 main types of deep cycle batteries (as shown opposite) - AGM, Gel, Lead Acid.
Battery size is measured in amp hours (ah) and most batteries range in size from 60 amp hours up to 130 amp hours. The larger the amp hours, the more power you will have available to you. A typical and highly suitable battery size for the ArkPak, commonly available in most stores, is the Group 31 size deep cycle battery.
Ark recommends an AGM battery for this purpose as it combines longevity of power with sufficiently high cold cranking amps to get your flat battery started.
