Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: True Cart Stories

Don’t get caught in your cart without a power source for your iPhone.

From Wednesday’s last round of practice at Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, we bring you this unidentified man (he works for “Menu to Venue”) and his portable iPhone charging system.

“It’s really easy and I can keep going,” he said. “I can charge two iPhones at one time, with a car battery charger.”

His rechargeable power source of choice is the Century Jumper 1000, which is designed to jump start cars. (Century’s website says the Jumper is no longer available.) But it also has a standard “cigarette lighter” type power outlet at the top of the unit. Our subject simply runs a USB cable out of his iPhone and into the port of the USB car charger cigarette lighter adapter.
