BatteryStuff for the Non-Powersports Rider

Here at BatteryStuff, the thing we sell the most is…well, you guessed it. Batteries.

While it’s true that we’re a leading provider in motorcycle, ATV, scooter, and watercraft batteries, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t something for you, too. If you’re like me, you may not have a motorcycle or any other powersport vehicle. I have an automobile, and that’s pretty much it. While BatteryStuff may not specialize in car batteries (at least, not yet), I have found something to be very useful for my car.Booster Cables

Just the other day, my car battery died. It was…quite embarrassing having that happen if you know what I mean. But luckily for me, we sells Booster Cables, which I used to jump start my car when I needed it. I always knew they were handy, but it never occurred to me how important it would be to keep one in the truck of my car. Not just for my sake, but for helping those who were stranded like myself.

Did you also know that we also sell high powered Flashlights, Jump Packs, and other Emergency products? That’s something we all have in common. Have you ever had the power go out, and need to depend on battery powered equipment and appliances? Isn’t it pretty disappointing when you find a flashlight with dead batteries in it? BatteryStuff also carries your essential AA, AAA, C, and D Alkaline and Rechargeable Batteries. Emergencies happen to everybody, and we can help you prepare for the unexpected.

Solar PanelSo many people have found the Our Solar Panels to be a great alternative to standard energy. We offer a great variety of panels, in different sizes. We have panels as small as 2 Watts and as large as 127 Watts. Smaller solar panels are great for powering electrical devices such as cell phones and laptops for camping trips. Others use them on the dashboard of their vehicles to keep their car or truck battery maintained, especially when it’s not going to be driven for an extended period of time. The large panels produce enough power to charge large RV and Marine batteries or help with the power consumption of your home.

BatteryStuff is not just interested in providing quality products, we also believe in educating the customer and providing useful and relative information to everyone. We offer “how-to” videos, fully written tutorials, and a knowledge base with frequently asked question. Our tech line is also available if you have a question about any of our products. Just call 541-474-4421, Monday through Friday, 7AM – 4 PM PST.

Hot Summer Sun

Hot Summer SunIs it just me, or is it hot outside? Remember, batteries can be damaged by extreme heat. If you can, keep your vehicles and batteries in the cool of the shade or indoors whenever possible. Solar panels, on the other hand, work best this time of year, if you know what I mean!

Have a great summer!

Father’s Day at Pottsville, Oregon

Father’s Day was last Sunday, and I had the opportunity to spend some of my afternoon at a little festival in Southern Oregon that we call, Pottsville. Here’s a quick rundown on what this place is:

An accumulation of Oregon’s past is what you will find at Pottsville.  Founded by Eugene Debbs Potts to commemorate Oregon’s Centennial in 1959, Pottsville is home to thousands of items commemorating Oregon’s history, from its legislative halls to the local logging woods. 
 

There was live music, food, shops, children’s events, and their famous tractor pull. I got to see some vintage John Deere tractors and some aged (and outdated) combustion engines that were still running strong. It’s a nice event for the agricultural community to show off their machines.

In the course of the gathering, my eye caught an interested sight. I walked in a hanger displaying some restored classic cars, and I looked up to see this 1967 125cc Montgomery Ward Motorcycle. 1967 Montgomery Ward 125 ccI couldn’t help but imagine what this bike would look like if restored. It was a tragic tale. An older woman had been driving it for years and her home was at the top of a hill. One day, the bike died on her. She really needed a vehicle to transport her home, so she intended to fix it. But all of her mechanic friends recommended she trash it and buy one of them new and snazzy bikes. So, she put the bike on the side of a road accompanied by a sign that read $50.

Fortunately, the bike was donated to the Eugene Debbs Potts Foundation instead, and is now on display for the public to see. It’s nice to have a place like Pottsville. The people here are dedicated to displaying local history and preserving their way of life. Check out Pottsville for more information.

I had a wonderful father’s day, and my son really enjoyed the show, too!
