Kick­start the Boat

Soundings - - Equipment -

When the boat won’t start be­cause of a dead bat­tery, one of Weego Por­ta­ble Power’s four com­pact jump starter bat­ter­ies can get you back un­der­way. The small­est lithium-poly­mer bat­tery in the line is 5.5 by 3 by .675 inches, weighs a lit­tle over half a pound and holds a charge for one year. The larger mod­els hold a charge for two years, have built-in, high-lu­men LED flash­lights, strobes and SOS fea­tures and are wa­ter, dust and dirt re­sis­tant. They are also ca­pa­ble of charg­ing a USB phone, lap­tops or other 12-volt ac­ces­sories. The largest bat­tery, the Weego 66.1, is 9.25 by 3.25 by 1.5 inches and weighs in at 2.5 pounds. It can restart all gas en­gines and diesel en­gines of 5 liters or more. Recharge time is un­der 3 hours. They can be charged up to 1,000 cy­cles and are war­ran­teed for 18 months. You can also use them to start your car or other 12-volt ve­hi­cle. Price: $70 to $200.
