Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 Now Available at Radioworld

Radioworld is excited to announce a new and revolutionary product to its ever growing line up.  The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1 are now in stock!

The Micro-Start XP-1 is a pocket size Extreme Power Lithium battery jump-starter and back-up power source for vehicles and electronics!

Whether you are riding, driving, camping, boating, snowmobiling, on your ATV or hiking, the Micro-Start XP-1 is one of the most important emergency power items you will ever purchase. It offers safety and security in a world where we rely so heavily on our electronic devices and vehicles. The XP-1 fits in your backpack, glove box, storage compartment or pocket. It is truly a go anywhere device.

Weighing less than a pound (14 oz. or 400g) and small enough to fit in your pocket, you can take it with you anywhere and remain confident that you will be able to start your vehicle, make that important call, or power other electronic devices on that long trip or outdoor adventure.

It also has a built in flashlight with S.O.S patterns!

The built-in Extreme Power Lithium battery can hold a charge for up to a year and not only jump-start most Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, ATVs, Snowmobiles and Watercraft multiple times, but can also provide hours of backup power to most of your electronic devices.

“Please note, some vehicles with highly sophisticated electrical systems may not jump-start using the MICRO-START.”

Does this all sound to good to be true? We thought the same thing, so decided to test it ourselves at Radioworld. We took our president’s BMW M3 and disconnected the battery. We then connected the Antigravity Micro-Start XP-1 battery to the car. To our amazement it started on the first try. We then shut off the car and repeated the same test 3 more times. The car started every time, each time with absolutely no trouble at all. With portable emergency power like this, in such a small package, you’ll never be stuck for a boost or emergency DC power again.

The Micro-Start XP-1 also has the following features:

– Charges and powers most electronic devices, including laptops.
– 3 on-board Power Ports: 19v for laptops, 12v standard output for all 12v Accessories, USB 5v output for charging or powering ANY 5v USB standard charged device.

NMEA 2000: Upgrading made easy!

For years plying the waters of our Great Lakes took skill and relied solely on
paper charts and the crackle of the ole marine radio! Nothing was more stressful
than plotting a dead reckoning on a raster chart during a 30 knot wind pushing
you closer to the rocks that you were trying to avoid in the first place!

Today, we enjoy and rely on electronic devices to solve our navigational and
communication problems. Take the new version of the maritime VHF radio! It
allows us to communicate our safety concerns within a third of a second for all
stations to hear. We can communicate with each other for a multitude of
reasons. We rely on radar, marine GPS Chartplotters and weather maps in one or
more marine devices.

Prices and competitive retail advantages have allowed all boaters the opportunity to own and enjoy all of these simple electronic pleasures. NMEA 2000 now makes hooking up all these devices a breeze. NMEA 2000 combines electrical and data specifications to set up a marine data network for communication between marine electronic devices such as radar, depth gauges, GPS – nautical chartplotters, navigation instruments, engine gauges, multiple tank level sensors and laptops. It has been defined by, and is controlled by,
the US based National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA). More and more
electronic manufactures are making their products to this standard.

Next time you are in the store looking for a new addition to your boat’s marine
electronics package, look for the label NMEA 2000 compliant. NMEA 2000 makes it easier to install, reduces costs and allows boaters to mix electronic manufacturers so they can enjoy the best equipment on the market. The NMEA 2000 system is based on a single backbone cable that sends messages and data in both directions.


The above drawing illustrates how a NMEA 2000 backbone can connect a power boats’
electronic device such as a GPS, VHF, compass, engine data, navigation system,
etc.

I know what I’m doing in the Spring! My Carver’s electronic devices need an
upgrade and there is no better way to do it. Come in and see us to discuss your
NMEA networking needs.
