Amped Portable Power

Amped Portable Power has teamed up with FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) as the official Portable Power Partner of one of South Africa’s premier three-day-stage mountain bike (MTB) events.

Launched in November 2013, Amped has a range of portable power units that recharge USB devices such as smart-phones, GPS tracking units, lights, MP3 players, action cameras, tablets and more.

“We are very excited to welcome Amped as an official partner to the FNB W2W,” says Michael Meyer, FNB W2W MTB Director.  “As the organizers of the FNB W2W we’re continuously striving to improve the rider experience at each of the three events.  Amped will provide a fantastic service to all riders taking part in 2014.  They will be able to stay in contact with their loved ones while taking on the FNB W2W MTB Challenge.  Our team can also stay connected for longer while out on route”.

“Access to power is one of the major rider needs on events,” says Rob Wright, a keen mountain biker and Founder of Amped Portable Power.  “Communication at the event is imperative to everyone, from riders to the event crew.  Race villages are inundated with demands to charge phones, GPS devices, cameras etc.  Amped provides the power to stay in touch with work, friends and family”.

“It’s great to be associated with one of South Africa’s leading mountain bike events,” continues Wright.  “We’re looking forward to interacting with thousands of riders, sponsors and crew.  Expect a hands-on product experience and the ability to recharge all of your technology on the go”.

Amped will have a number of special offers for riders taking on the 2014 FNB W2W MTB events, including 300 limited edition FNB W2W MTB branded Carbon 6’s.  Be the first to purchase one online http://amped.co.za/product/carbon-6-fnbw2w/
