At Battery Accessories, we have everything you need to keep your battery happy when out at sea and when moored in the marina or dock.  

Here, we recommend other fantastic gadgets to make your time onboard even better. Whether you enjoy exploring wherever you are anchored, like to relax to music, sunbathe or duck and dive, we have a device just for you!  


Polarized Sailing Sunglasses

You will be dealing with glare from the water, intense winds, and no shade, which means that no ordinary sunglasses will make the cut. You will need to have polarized lenses such as the Costa Polarized Pescador Sunglasses. These have seven different lens colours, ranging from a lowlight to very bright light options, so that every sunray type will be covered, and your eyes will be protected. They are also made from recycled fishing nets, so they are suitable for the environment at the same time. Win, win!  


Underwater Scooter

The best way of describing it is that it looks like an underwater scooter featuring double propellers which can glide you through the water so you can explore under the sea with confidence and speed. It also comes with a GoPro mount so you can take amazing videos of your underwater adventures and document your deep-sea explorations. This is also great when you do not have much time to explore underwater, but you want to see as much of the underwater world as possible.  


Inflatable Stand-Up Paddle

If you want something light and easy to store on the boat, we recommend the inflatable stand-up paddleboard because it is portable, easy to store and cheaper than its fibreglass counterparts.  


Full-Face Snorkel Mask

This is not just your average snorkelling mask; oh no, it is a full-face snorkel, meaning that you can have a 180o view under the sea. This will allow you to see more coral, sea life and anything else you may encounter underwater. Many of the full-face snorkel masks also come with a GoPro mount so that you can watch your underwater experiences back repeatedly.  


Solar-Powered Waterproof Speakers

But we all know that electronics and water do not mix. This is where the Altec Lansing Lifejacket 3 Bluetooth Speaker comes into play. Not only is the speaker waterproof, but it is also shock and sand proof, so you can also easily take the party to the beach. It also comes with 30-hour battery life, so you know it will last, and it also floats, so if you have a particularly windy day and it falls overboard into the sea, you will not lose it. That is if you can quickly retrieve it before it goes on its own adventure!
