Weego Multipurpose Jump Starters / Battery Chargers

by Chris Grech

This month Weego launched their the full line of versatile, multi-purpose batteries to jump start vehicles in every engine size and for every budget. Guaranteeing peace of mind for moms to mechanics and beginner boaters to professional captains, the new N-Series products are premium-quality tools, fit for anyone at any time.

The N-Series includes four levels of independently lab-tested jump starters that provide the power a vehicle needs to get back on the road or in the water. Several N-Series products come complete with tactical-grade flashlights and also bring phones, tablets, laptops or other accessories back to life via 5V USB, 12V and 19V outputs.

Packed with durable, high-quality components and backed by a crazy-long 18-month warranty, the N-Series line is designed and engineered in the United States at a quality and price point that ensures maximum value. Each product includes ergonomic, patented Smarty Clamps® – jump starter clamps that incorporate sight and sound cues to guide users through the jumping process, making them not only the easiest to use but also the safest.

N-Series Products and Features:

•N66 – Most powerful – for big gas engines up to 10L (diesel up to 5L). Powers phones, tablets and other portable devices, including 12V and 19V electronics; 600-lumen dual LED flashlight; IP65 rated.

•N44 – Most popular – for gas engines up to 7L (diesel up to 3.5L). Powers phones, tablets and other portable devices, including 12V and 19V electronics; 500-lumen dual LED flashlight; IP65 rated.

•N22 – Most efficient – for gas engines up to 5L (diesel up to 2.5L). Powers phones; 250-lumen dual LED flashlight; IP65 rated.

•N22S – Most affordable – for gas engines up to 5L (diesel up to 2.5L).

Unlike competitive jump starters, Weego guarantees products will perform as promised. Amp readings are verified, engine compatibilities are tried and true and lumen specifications are accurate. With no governing agency to verify portable-power product specifications, trust in a brand is critical to ensure safety and Weego is a brand that users can trust.

Imtra Professional Grade LED Deck Lights

by Chris Grech

A couple weeks ago IMTRA released the Offshore and PitMaster series LED deck lights engineered and manufactured by Vision X for the recreational and commercial marine markets. The new lights provide superior illumination with durability and reliability that is ideal for boats or anywhere a quality, durable light is needed. These are the real deal.

The new Offshore series LED deck lights are available from 3,300 to over 11,000 effective lumens, while the PitMaster series lights are available in models providing 11,000 to over 22,000 effective lumens. Both series are offered in a selection of beam patterns from narrow beam and extra wide floods, to elliptical patterns for projecting light exactly where it is needed and away from where it is not. IMTRA offers customized engineered solution services with 3D vessel modeling and deck lighting simulation to design a precise coverage map for its customers.

All models are offered in white or black vibration dampened and shockproof anodized 6061 die-cast aluminum housings with an exclusive marine-grade Interpon 810 Polyester TGIC-free powder coating for the highest weatherability under the most extreme conditions. The units also feature a durable impact and UV resistant PCB lens; meet CE, ROHS, and IEC safety standards; and are IP68/IP69K rated for submersion to 3 meters and up to 100 bar high-pressure spray. The PitMaster series also meet UL standards. A patented Prime Drive electronic thermal management system prolongs LED and component life, and prevents LED color shifting, while the isolated copper circuit-board and reverse polarity protection defends installations from short circuits and electrical damage from stray current. The units are designed to produce a consistent lumen output throughout a temperature range of -40 degrees to over 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own basic tools (work gloves, paper grabber / ez-reacher) and to wear work boots or similar footwear with traction to help prevent slipping on rocks. This is a rain or shine event, so please dress appropriately.

We encourage you to bring your kids and set an example of caring for the environment. School, scout and community groups are welcome. Please try to give us advance notice if you are bringing a group to join us.

Volunteers are well cared for with food and drink provided through the support of our friends at the Harris Corporation, and to make things interesting, all participants are entered in a free raffle for prizes including tickets for trips with The Angler Fleet of Port Washington , and other fishing and non-fishing goodies from Fisherman Depot of College Point and other community friends and supporters.
Join us and help make a difference that you can see today and for the rest of the season.
