Committed To Safety, Innovation And Our Customers
We first launched Weego in 2014. From the very beginning, our aim was to produce the highest quality, safest, most intuitive, and most convenient portable power products on the market. Instead of following what was done before, we approached the issue of jump starting with fresh eyes, which allowed us to re-imagine the product category. For example, our patented Smarty Clamps® break new ground for safety, practicality and ease of use, and our lithium-ion batteries are safe, powerful, compact, and incredibly reliable. Five years later Weego continues to be an industry pioneer, with an expansive range of jump starters, battery packs and accessories.
Our History – From Paper To Power
Oddly enough, the story of Weego begins with a paper company called Paris Corporation. Founded by our CEO Gerry’s father in 1964, Paris is still a leading player in the paper industry. However, with the growth of technology paper began to be an industry of decline. Looking to diversify into technology (because if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em), Gerry astutely noticed an opportunity to solve the age-old problem of dead batteries.
Being a car, boat and tractor owner, he knew the troubles of dead batteries all too well. He also felt the solutions available were archaic, unsafe and inconvenient. Jumper cables and heavy lead acid jump boxes just didn’t cut it. He saw the potential for a light, compact jump starter suitable for anybody who owned a vehicle.
