Battery Management System
The Time Tracker is a sophisticated battery management system that monitors your battery through the interactive LCD screen. The screen displays things like battery current condition, battery capacity remaining, charge time remaining, current charging cycle, battery type, battery size selection. The new ArkPak will fit up to a group size 31 battery(approx. 130Ah) Batteries are not included with the device for shipping reasons most likely. But hey I like that because then I get a good price on the unit itself and I can choose what kind of battery I want to put into it. BatteryPete recommends using an AGM/Gel/ or Lithium type of battery. They are more expensive than a traditional lead acid battery but you get what you pay more with anything in life. Batteries are no exception! Nor can a traditional lead acid battery be shipped via common carrier because they are not a totally sealed battery.(They can leak, and they out gas with charging and discharging) Because of the type of device we are referencing here and the usage options that are available to the end user. We want you to get the most out of this device. Learn more about AGM batteries here. BatteryPete even offers some of the best in lithium battery technology from brands like CTC and Super B. The new ArkPak comes with a new Integrated 7 Step Smart Charger as well. The 7 stage smart charger monitors your battery through the following cycles to optimize performance:
Stage 1: Charge – Commences recovery of your battery back to peak voltage. Then charges the battery at 6 amps up to a set voltage, at which point the battery is approximately 90% charged.
Stage 2: Testing – Checks the battery capacity and predicts the hours left until fully charged.
Stage 3: Bulk – The period just before boost when the volts are constant.
Stage 4: Boost – Peak charge for maximum performance. Battery is charged for 4 hours at constant voltage.
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 13.2V.
Stage 6: Float – This maintains performance and prolongs battery life – as your battery is continually monitored and the voltage is maintained at 13.2V by automatically adjusting charge current for 500 hours.
Stage 7: Condition – This exercises the battery and avoids sulfide build-up. After 500 hours of conditioning the charger automatically returns to charge cycle.
- AC Input 110VAC
- DC Input via your Vehicle (While running/driving your car, truck or Rv will charge using its internal charging system via the alternator)
- Anderson Plug / Socket (Ac Input)
- Solar (DC or AC) (Will depend on how your system is set up or where you place the ArkPak in the mix)
