Tech review: Portable Weego JS12 can jump your car’s battery
I’m obsessed with power. Not the king-of-the-world kind of power. I mean the keep-your-phone- charged power.
Sooner or later, the world is going to run on battery power. Cars are sure headed that way. My guess is that most cars will be electric in 50 years.
Solar power relies on batteries to store the energy for later use. And I can’t think of too many people who don’t plug in at least a cellphone each day to charge up its battery.
Rechargeable batteries and external battery packs have really taken advantage of advances in technology. Batteries are smaller and more powerful than ever, and consumers are starting to see some real benefits.
I’m not sure anyone realized how big a part rechargeable batteries would play in our daily lives.
I’ve been using and testing various external rechargeable batteries the last few years. I’ll admit I’m a battery geek.
I’ve also been carrying jumper cables in my car for 35 years or so.
Well, there was a year or two a decade ago when I carried a self-contained jump-starter, but it was almost as big as a car battery, it weighed a ton, and it didn’t keep a charge very long.
