Case Study – Weekend Adventurer needs portable power
Why I Need Portable Power
I need lights when the sun goes down and to enjoy a cold beer or two when I am making dinner for the family. Can’t forget I also need cold milk in the morning for coffee and cornflakes and I need to charge up phones and tablets, run a small TV in case the football game can’t be missed. And one more thing I need to keep the music playing when I am scaling the fish. I need portable power.
My current lead battery weighs so much I nearly threw my back out trying to carry it. Cables and connectors were always getting lost and I accidentally ran the battery down to empty one time and it was never the same again. It was ruined after a couple of trips and it’s now the world’s most expensive boat anchor.
