Have you ever had your phone, GoPro, handheld GPS, or any other accessory run out of batteries while out on the water or out camping?

Have you ever had your trolling motor battery or main boat battery dry up and need a jump start?

Well, this amazing new battery charger called the “Nautic Start” can solve both problems at once.

It’s pretty darn cool!

And the best news is that it is so small it can fit in your hand and hardly takes up any space!

  • The only real con we have found with this is that it doesn’t come with an adapter for a 3-pronged electrical cord (like charging a computer, etc).
  • But other than that, it has everything you could ever need in an emergency battery charger.

Over the past few years, I have been through a couple of different backup battery chargers for my accessories (like my iPhone and GoPro while out on a boat).

Some have worked pretty well, while others barely worked…

But this Nautic Start not only works incredibly well to charge up any of your small accessories, but it can also act as an emergency jump starter for your car or boat.

The fact that it can fit in your car glove compartment, kayak storage, or boat storage area is pretty awesome.

Regardless if you buy a back-up battery charger like this from Nautic Sport or someone else, we urge every boater to have one of these in their boats.

You never know when you might need it, and it could save you a ton of time and money if you ever did have a battery problem while out in the boat (or in the woods).

Nautic Sport does sell a set of laptop adapters separately as well and they plug into the 19.5amp 3.5v port, for charging a variety of different laptops…

Thanks for the support, Salt Strong…
