Good for $200!
I managed to score a second hand one for $200. For this price it is awesome value.
BUT don't try and charge it through your cigarette socket on your car... you will blow things up lol.
It needs a direct cable to your battery.
UPDATE: Well that was a waste of money in the long run. It slowly stopped working - now is just an expensive battery box.
Purchased in March 2019 for $200.00.
My Ark Pak was great ( while it worked). Then I contacted Ark Corporation about getting it fixed and they charged me an extra $200 and everybody disappeared. NoArk. No money.
Purchased in January 2015 at Bunnings Warehouse for $499.00.
Not as claimed, but OK
It does all the things it should, but with issues
Very noisy fan makes charging in a sleeping area not an option
Open Circuit Alarm always going off (just Google it)
240volt adapter will die early, replacement is $$$$$
Support is good, the people at Arkpak have much online support
But when you are paying north of $400 for an empty box, should you expect such issues?
No problems with the item as it does what it says

I have a tip if interested
If anyones ac adapter doesn't work anymore, do what I do and use my laptop one. It works for me, try it before forking out for a new one. We charge ours with 150w solar whilst camping to run our 60lt evakool frige freezer/lights, charge phone etc.
Questions & Answers
For some reason when charging battery in arkpak on 240v it charges for about 15 sec then goes to discharge cycle and will not charge. it will charge battery when connected to solar panels. Could it be the AC adapter?
