Tiny New Car Jump Starter Avoids the Long Slog Home
Salt Lake City, UT – The late afternoon sun is sinking below the ridge line as you and your buddy return to your car at the end of a full day of backcountry skiing. You’ve been on the mountain since your dawn patrol departure after poring over topo maps under the glow of your car’s map light. You’ve had a powder-filled day that’s left you smiling from ear to ear, but now you’re exhausted and cold as the temperature is quickly dropping while the sun sets. You step out of your skis, put the key in the ignition and turn.
Click click. Click click. Click.
You left the car’s map light on all day. It’s battery is now dead, and you’re 12 miles up a dead-end road at a remote trailhead, outside of cell service with no one else in sight.
But unlike your friend, you don’t panic. Instead, you quietly open up the glove box and retrieve your Weego, a tiny new jump starter that fits in the palm of your hand. You plug in the alligator clips that connect to your car’s battery, turn the device on, and get back inside your car to turn that key again.
