Golf technology marches on …

Sureshotgpg GW2

WHO would have thought just a few short years ago the role technology would play for the everyday golfer. Not just continued improvements to clubs and balls but with the peripheral devices that seem to have become essential for many golfers.

Who would have thought, for instance, golfers would be walking around with sophisticated satellite tracking devices on their wrists to measure distances, mobile telecommunications and now mini solar powered energy stations strapped to their golf bags.

Two of the latest releases from Sureshotgps continue the trend:

Sureshotgps SS Solar Power Pack

Some golfers in fact now carry around so many energy hungry devices with them the logical next step was to provide them with mobile recharging units.

The new Sureshotgps SS Solar Power Pack is the answer for golfers whose tech gear or mobile phone starts running low on juice on the course.

This handy device is best kept in your golfing bag, is lightweight, and recharges itself under artificial light and sunlight.

The power pack will suit most other brands of golf GPS units as well as mobile phones including iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and BlackBerry.

Sureshotgps says the power pack is a perfect companion for golfers who spend hours at a time on the course and utilise advanced golf tech gear to improve their game. Sureshotgps SS Solar Power Pack RRP $49.95
