Weego Jump Starter Battery+ Bundle

by Chris Grech

Looking to pick up n early holiday gift for someone you know or maybe for yourself? The Weego Jump Starter Battery+ bundled with a free Weego smartphone charger is coming and it makes a great gift for anyone.

Weego is pocket sized and capable of starting 12V batteries in cars, boats, trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs and more, as well as charging phones, tablets, speakers and laptops. Incredibly easy to use, each Weego model includes jumper cables that can be attached to the terminals of a dead battery. Easy-to-follow instructions are printed on the back of each Weego for quick reference. To start an engine, simply connect the clamps to the battery terminals, attach the cable to the Jump Starter Battery+, turn the power on and start the engine. A built-in LED flashlight assists in low-light situations and a strobe with SOS function (on the two larger capacity models) draws roadside or on-the-water attention if needed. A 3-in-1 USB charging cord, 8 popular-brand laptop connectors, wall and car chargers, and a carrying case are included.

Weego Jump Starters are offered in three sizes. The JS6 Standard is capable of starting gas engines up to 4.6L and diesel engines up to 2.4L; the JS12 Heavy Duty model can easily start gas engines up to 6.4L and diesel engines up to 3.2L, and the JS18 Professional can start gas engines up to 9.6L and up to 4.8L diesels. Weego features built-in circuitry protection, an auto-off feature and jumper cables with both a fuse and diode to ensure user safety, as well as protection for the unit. Weego jump starters offer up to 1,000 charging cycles (a full charge plus full discharge), have an operating temperature from -4 to 140-degrees Fahrenheit (-20 to 60-degrees Celsius), are independently lab tested, and are backed by a "crazy-long" 18-month warranty from a company that's been in business for over 50 years.

Weego's high-quality components and durable construction guarantee long-lasting performance too. Lithium-polymer batteries only lose up to 2% of their charge per month when stored, so it's possible to leave Jump Starter Battery+ in your vehicle for a year or more and still have enough power to start the engine during the 2016 holidays!
Weego sweetens the holiday offer by bundling the Heavy Duty JS12 Jump Starter Battery+ with a free Weego Battery Pack – a $19.99 suggested retail value. The compact Weego Battery Pack is the lightest and easiest way to keep a smartphone charged, perfect for pocket or purse throughout a dawn-to-dusk shopping spree. At just under 3 ounces and about the size of a pack of gum, the rechargeable battery pack provides up to 1.5 times more smartphone charges. Quality Samsung SDI lithium-ion battery cells used in the Weego Battery Pack provide 500 charging cycles.

by Chris Grech

The annual Fall Family Fishing Festival will be held on Saturday, October 17 at Hempstead Lake State Park from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. The DEC's I FISH NY Program and Freshwater Fisheries Unit is sponsoring the event along with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP).

No fishing license is required for this event and admission and parking are free. Festival activities begin at 10 a.m. and offers fly-fishing instruction, casting practice, loaner rods, free bait, and fish cleaning services. Additionally, a display area will be set up by Trout Unlimited, DEC Environmental Education, New York State Parks as well as other fishing and environmental organizations.

Children's activities will also begin at 10 a.m. and will include pumpkin decorating, a magic show, pony rides and face painting. A casting contest where participants can catch a pumpkin or "hook" a prize will be held by the Knights of Columbus of Seaford. Casting contest prizes are provided by I FISH NY, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, The Fisherman Magazine, and Dick's Sporting Goods.

Prior to the festival, NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will stock South and McDonald Ponds in Hempstead Lake State Park with hundreds of brook and rainbow trout. DEC also stocks several water bodies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties including: Upper Twin Pond (Wantagh), Oyster Bay Mill Pond, Massapequa Reservoir, and 12 other Suffolk County lakes with brown trout.
