Weego’s portable battery charger can moonlight as a charger for tablets, smartphones and other USB-powered devices. The Weego 44 Jump Starter ($149) works with gasoline- and diesel-powered engines, and its orange casing has IP65 weatherproof protection. An external battery includes a 500-lumen LED flashlight with a strobe function and it can flash an SOS message. Weego says the unit can recharge your devices up to 75 percent faster than wall outlets.

Garmin’s GMR Fantom radars use solid-state, pulse-compression technology to maximize target detection and identification, and pulse-expansion technology to differentiate targets from noise. MotionScope Doppler technology paints targets in different colors, and Echo Trail depicts a target’s direction of travel. Fantom radars come in 4-foot ($6,999) and 6-foot ($7,499) open arrays. Both are smaller and lighter than Garmin’s previous-generation systems.

Aydin Marine‘s 17-inch Glass Bridge Lite Display ($4,800) helps boaters match their helm stations with properly sized displays to create a glass bridge. The display has dimmable, LED-backlit screens and billet-aluminum cases that provide IP68 dust and water-ingress protection on the unit’s face, with IP65 protection on its back. The monitor has 1280×1024 pixel resolution and a 5:4 aspect ratio, and it plays nicely with HDMI, DVI, VGA and composite input signals.
