The most common personal electronic devices include cell phones and GPS devices.

We consider all personal electronic devices (whether personally owned or provided by us) to be an "accessory" and will provide support for them as a Level 1 mechanical situation according to our mechanical support services policies. Accordingly, a SAG vehicle will NOT come out to your location on the road and provide additional assistance.

Power Charging
Relatively short battery lives can be a major issue with personal electronic devices. By far the most common way a device will fail on the road is simply running out of power and is best prevented through proper personal planning beforehand.

  • Click Here for more information about personal electronic device power sources and how to be personally prepared against running out of power for each type.

Wall Outlets
If your personal electronic device runs low or out of power on the road, you will be able to charge it as long as you need to at any rest stop location that has operational electrical outlets. We will have a wall USB power adapter and the following types of USB charging cables available:

  • mini USB
  • micro USB
  • 8 pin adapter for iPhone 6 & 5
  • 30 pin adapter for iPhone 4, 3, & original

We cannot guarantee that electricity will be available at any rest stop or how long it will take for you to charge your device, particularly if other participants also need to charge their devices.

AA USB Chargers
We will also have AA battery USB chargers and new AA batteries for sale.

  • Click Here for more information about our AA battery USB chargers.
