Battery charger manufacturer Powermania is sponsoring amateur sportfisherman Carson Orellana.

At 17, Orellana recently competed in the 2012 Bassmaster Southern Opens. In 2012, he also took second place in the Bass Federation Junior state championship, third place in the Federation Nation Southern Divisional and third place in the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Junior State Championship.

"I made a smart decision to use a Powermania battery-charging system," Orellana said in a statement. "Having the satisfaction in knowing that my batteries have been fully charged between tournament days gives me more confidence before heading out on the water."

"We're proud to sponsor Carson and are thrilled to know that our products help him out on the water," Powermania sales manager Randy Wang said in a statement. "At only 17 he's proven to be a tough competitor, and we're confident he'll continue to develop his skills and grow to be a world-class fisherman."
