TowBoatU.S. operators and BoatU.S. members can get discounts on Weego jumpstarters.

TowBoatU.S. has selected Weego as its preferred jump starter. Weego is a manufacturer of jump starters and rechargeable battery packs.

“Each year, our BoatU.S. 24-hour dispatch centers receive more than 70,000 request from boaters for on-the-water assistance,” said Adam Wheeler, vice president of towing services for BoatU.S., in a statement. “The number one reason they call is for a dead battery, translating to thousands of battery jumps every year. We needed a reliable, rechargeable power pack that worked every time, all of the time. “After testing at some of our busiest locations, Weego 66 met that high standard so we’ve chosen to make Weego our preferred jump starter for our fleet of 600 towboats.”

“To be acknowledged by this world-class, professional organization of towing and recovery captains is an awesome validation of our products,” said Gerry Toscani, CEO of Weego in a statement. “TowBoatU.S. is driven to providing its members with exceptional service while on the water through their 24/7 service. At Weego, we have a similar goal. Whether you are an existing BoatU.S. member looking for a cool multifunctional tool that’s packed with features to help you stay charged, powered up and brightly lit, or you are shopping for a portable jump starter to get you quickly back to shore, we have the power that you need to boat safely and continue to have a great time doing it.”

To launch the partnership, TowBoatU.S. operators will receive a discount on products at myweego.com. The program is also available to the Members Savings’ program provided to BoatU.S. members.

Weego jump starters can jump 10-liter gas and 5-liter diesel engines proving up to 2500 peak amps and 600 cranking amps. The company offers four compact models and each one weighs less than 2.5 pounds.
