People have become increasingly aware of keeping an emergency kit in their car—including portable battery chargers.
Broomfield, Colorado (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
During the winter and spring of 2014, much of North America experienced inclement and extreme weather conditions. From freezing rains in Atlanta, Georgia to record-setting snowfall across the Midwest, motorists have had to deal not only with icy roads, but also with dead and dying car batteries.
“Even residents of Canada and in many parts of the Northern U.S., who generally are used to winter conditions, were hard hit ,” says Ray Torres, President and CEO of Colorado-based Checkers Industrial Safety Products. “People have become increasingly aware of keeping an emergency kit in their car—including portable battery chargers.”
According to Torres, Checkers has recently released a white paper detailing the considerations consumers should analyze before selecting a portable battery charger for personal use. Those things which should be taken into account, according to the paper, include the size of the device, its ability to power multiple devices if needed, how quickly the unit can be charged or recharged, and how easy it is to utilize.
“If a charger is large or heavy, most people simply won’t carry it with them,” he says. “Finding a unit that can fit easily under the seat, in the glove box, or even in a purse where a person can access and confidently use it is extremely important.”
Although not mentioned in the white paper available here, Torres says that Checkers Industrial Safety Products has recently introduced a new product to their line-up, called the Compact Power Charger. Measuring just 6.125” x 3” x 1.125”, this Compact Power Charger is strong enough to charge the battery of V-8 trucks as well as boat, motorcycle and ATV batteries. It can jump start up to 12 vehicles on a single charge, while also having the capability to charge mobile phones, laptops and other electronic devices.
