New Products: Weego Portable Jump Starters for Motorcycles
With the 2016 summer riding season underway, it’s important for motorcycle enthusiasts to make sure they are prepared for all kinds of problems on the road, especially a dead battery.
Weego’s line of Jump Starter Battery+ models are ready to energize the riding season by giving riders the ability to jump-start a dead battery with the included clamps in the kit, or making it easier than ever with an all-new accessory, Powersports Tether. The 24-inch-long tether connects directly to the motorcycle’s battery terminals and can be plugged into a Weego Jump Starter, eliminating any need to remove the seat whenever jump starting.
This is a perfect, ultra-convenient solution for any emergency engine-starts required while away from home. An included SAE trickle-charge adapter also allows the same tether to be connected to a trickle charger for regular battery maintenance. When getting ready for the motorcycle season, simply connect a trickle charger to the SAE connector to recharge the bike’s battery.
The Weego jump starters are small enough to fit in your pocket, under your seat or tucked away in your pannier. And are powerful enough to not only jump start your bike’s engine but will bring a smartphone, most laptops or any USB device back to life.
“Whether riding in town or across the country, a dead battery is going to ruin your day. Fortunately, our jump starters will get you back on the road quickly and safely: no clumsy cables, no stranger-danger, no tow, no heavy jump box, no sweat,” said Gerry Toscani, CEO of Weego. “We understand the passion of riding and how important it is to be prepared for emergencies. With the new Weego Powersports Tether attached to the bike’s battery, an hour-plus-long emergency is cut to a few, measly minutes. And when parked at home base, the Powersports Tether doubles as a trickle charger cable to maintain the charge. It’s a complete solution. So easy.”
Weego has recently teamed up with record-setting adventure riders Simon and Lisa Thomas of 2RideTheWorld and after traveling to six continents through 78 countries in some of the most austere environments on the planet, they are strong believers in the kind of reliable power Weego brings to adventure riding.
