The Best Gear for Your Road Trip – Reviews by Wirecutter
On your next road trip, Wirecutter recommends packing a Weego 22s Jump Starting Power Pack along with the rest of your gear. After researching and testing 40 portable Jump Starters, Weego 22 “delivers the most impressive combination of power, safety features, build quality, and value of any model in our test group”.
“A road trip should be an adventure, but all adventures require a little planning (and one or two backup plans in case things go sideways). After spending 60 hours researching and testing gear for the open road, we packed all our top contenders into a Honda Fit EX and headed out on a four-day jaunt to see what kind of gear is nice to have, what’s great, and what’s absolutely essential for your next road trip.
After researching 40 portable, lithium ion jump starters and testing 12 models, we recommend the Weego Jump Starter 22s as the best jump starter for most drivers. It delivers the most impressive combination of power, safety features, build quality, and value of any model in our test group. For an accessible price, the Weego offers enough oomph to start most cars and midsize SUVs, and enough capacity to do it time after time without needing a recharge, though you should plug it in every few months to top it off. Adding one to your car can save the day when a dead battery leaves you stranded. Instead of waiting for a Good Samaritan with jumper cables or calling roadside assistance, you can use a portable jump-starter pack, which has its own high-capacity battery that attaches to your car’s battery just as normal jumper cables do.
