    Great product and power source

  4. Michael s says:

    Great power source, love the metered output via regulation. Awesome tool and power network for electrical needs and emergency use.


  5. Only a couple days left until I draw a winner! So great to see so many comments. I’ll be drawing a winner at random and including people who signed up via email as entrants too. I’ll email the winner and will post who it was only if they want me to.

    Good Luck!

    Living in Hawaii where some people still think we live in grass shacks. I’d love to be the winner so I can power up my small shack I call a home and finally live with accommodations others take advantage of.

    Too often in my NAPA career, I see campers stocking up on multitudes of deep cycle batteries to keep fifth wheel electrical operations going. This is a much more sustainable option to the power drain/environmental issue with decreased battery purchases (therefore less lead, etc., to contend with recycling). I own a small Solio solar charger that I like a lot, but it doesn’t have nearly enough “juice” to cover 3 people’s electrical needs when camping. This would be really helpful to have! Great review, thank you!

    Awesome review! Wouldn’t mind winning that Ark Pak either.

  9. Susan P says:

    That is pretty neat. We have been looking for something like this in an emergency or to use once we get into camping mode again. :)

  10. Diane R. says:

    ArkPak seem great for a beginner car camper and as a back up power source at home during storm system.

    Thank you for the great review!

    I really need a set up like this! I would love to be able to head for the hills without worrying about keeping my laptop and cell phones charged.

  16. Johnny Hudd says:

    Looks like a great contingency tool

  17. Andrew Malinovsky says:

    That would be very handy to have during storm season.

  18. Bernadette Connolly says:

    This sounds fantastic!!!

    Cool set compact easy to use!

  20. Chris Hanson says:

    An ArkPak and solar panel combo looks like a great setup for back country adventures. Thanks for the thorough review.

  21. Larry says:

    Very nice review. I have the ArkPak & have been promoting it to all my friends, especially those concerned about having a stealty form of auxillary power if the SHTF. Just fired off your review to them.

  22. alex chan says:

    Great review of its uses. Love the portability of it.

    Great review. Great piece of kit for sure.

  26. Daniel says:

    This will be great for our outdoor activities, offroading, eapecially when the electricity goes out.. Haha

  27. V.Mazun says:

    Shared your review with a friend, he ended up ordering one the same day. Now hes on his way to death valley going to use it to charge camera gear and macbook.

  28. Todd Eden says:

    Definitely on the ‘must buy’ list

  29. Eric Bainbridge says:

    ArkPak would be a real sweet addition to my VW Westfalia – fingers crossed!!

  30. Michael Declerck says:

    The ArkPak looks great. Been looking at using it as a more affordable option to some of the GoalZero options in our off-grid cabin. Nice review!

  31. George Bao says:

    Arkpak looks awesome! Awesome review and pictures as well!

  32. Matthew Dickinson says:

    I’ve been looking at this for our honeymoon expedition.
    Good review!

  33. Wonderful review of the awesome ArkPak!
    I use home oxygen and a bipap machine (24/7), both of which require an electrical outlet to operate. Having the ArkPak would bring so much freedom into my life! It would allow me to get out of the house again! I can’t tell you the number of nights that I have sat in fear of an electrical outage due to storms in my area. Being able to win the ArkPak would change my life in so many positive ways! I could go camping again, and fishing, without fear of a dead battery and my machines shutting down! That would be so amazing! I love to do those things and haven’t got a chance to do them for many years. Thank you very much for this opportunity to win the amazing ArkPak!

  34. Stuart says:

    I saw this at the Overland Expo in Flagstaff last weekend. What a great product for 4×4 backcountry adventures!

  35. Eric says:

    great review, been toying with making my own but this is real nice. Only think is I wish it had a solar controller built in to make it more of an all in one unit. I currently use a Duracell power 600 with a 28 amp hour battery and 70 watt solar panel. For camping it is great but I dont think it would be enough during any real emergency.

  36. Jeff McCallum says:

    Thank you for the excellent review. I have been working on researching power options for some long camping trips.

  37. Kevin Klasman says:

    Having a silent source of renewable power would be very useful.

  38. Linda says:

    I like it.It is a good start towards setting up a small solar system.

  39. Kirstie Szlasa "Birdie" says:

    It would be great to own one of these. My husband and I are cleaning up an old hunter’s cabin in the Adirondacks and we need some power here! I’ve been reading your blog and am excited about the possibilities at our own place on the other side of the country. Thanks for the great videos – keep’em coming!

  40. Tullyworkernick says:

    I would love to win

  41. Paul Schreer says:

    Great review. I was shown the ArkPak and introduced to your Blog by the same person. After checking it out myself, I would like to have one in real life. It would be a perfect companion for my off-grid adventures. Cheers!

  42. Imogen says:

    We don’t have ANY 240V imput on our bus… I’m thinking this would be a very handy little jigger.

  43. John W says:

    Great write up! This or your DIY solar generator are on the list for this summers camping. Being able to bring the cpap will keep the wife from beating profusely in my sleep!

  44. Blaine says:

    The ArkPak looks well make. Great review. It is really helpful to see how it could be used and your comments are exactly would I would have asked about. I am a HAM so I already use Andersen Power connectors with all writing an essay my radio gear.


  45. fngrpntr says:
