Glove Box Battery Jumper

car battery charger

This is the device that charges a car’s battery from the comfort and safety of the driver’s seat. Small enough to store inside a glove box, the 30-volt battery plugs into a car’s 12-volt lighter outlet. The device jump-starts a car’s battery in as little as 10 minutes, providing a two-amp “trickle” charge, even in temperatures as low as -10º F. A quick beep indicates when charging is complete. Reversing a switch allows the device to recharge in 30 minutes from a running car. It comes fully charged, providing up to five years of power. Includes a set of mini-jumper cables for motorcycles.

Solar Powered Golf Cart

solar golf cart

This is the electric golf cart that has an array of 72 photovoltaic cells built into the roof that collect solar energy, providing up to 33% more range between recharges than non-solar electric golf carts. The cart’s 160-watt array produces up to three amps per hour for its 48-volt rechargeable battery system, providing a range of up to 49 miles–approximately 10 rounds of golf–before requiring a full recharge (overnight via its 6′ long AC adapter; 15 hours via its solar array). The array also extends the life of the battery system by 60% more than other electric golf carts. Its 5 1/2-hp electric motor and 19-spline rear axle provides a maximum speed of 24 MPH and is powerful enough to enable the cart to climb a 28° incline when fully loaded with two passengers and golf bags, supporting up to 755 lbs. The cart uses rack and pinion steering, leaf springs, and heavy shock suspension to provide a smooth, even ride on its rugged 8″ pneumatic tires. A built-in speed controller allows you to limit the maximum speed, and its self-adjusting drum brakes provide reliable stopping. Includes a two-person seat with vinyl upholstery, four cup holders, and straps for securing two golf bags.
