After the great success of ENERJUMP, Midland widens the range of jump starters to be able to startup any kind of vehicles, by introducing two brand new models: ENERJUMP WORK and ENERJUMP TRUCK.

All these models have been created with the aim of being used for different types of vehicles with different displacements.

ENERJUMP TRUCK is easy to use, place and carry.

Using ENERJUMP TRUCK is very easy: if the battery of your vehicle is dead, connect the clamps in parallel (without disconnecting the vehicle’s cables from the battery) and start your vehicle!

Thanks to its particular design and compact size ENERJUMP TRUCK can be easily stowed in tight spaces or between the seats of your vehicle, while the built-in handle allows to easily take it with you.

Recently Midland introduced their first digital PMR radio. This is what they say about this new product:
D200 Photo HQ2
This innovative device allows you to communicate using two different protocols:
– DPMR446
– PMR446
Digital technology offers important new features: first of all, it enhances communication quality, which is much clearer than with the analogue system.
In addition, digital audio processing significantly reduces sensitivity to noise and interference.
Being new on the market the digital bandwidth is less congested than analogue frequencies.
It has twice as many (16) channels as in classic PMR446, being 8 analogue and 8 digital (these last onesyou  can even double by using the dedicated programming kit, partnumber C974.01.)
D-200 allows you to make individual and group calls. In particular D-200 comes with 3 customisable buttons that can be used to make three different types of calls – standard, individual and group calls. In addition, a powerful digital scrambler will protect communications from unwanted listeners and ensure maximum privacy.

Versions: DPMR446/PMR446
Colour: Black
Channels: 8 Analogic + 8 Digital preprogrammed
Tones: 52 CTCSS + 166 DCS
Export Version 5 Watt

In the end of September Midland informed us that their model CB radio Midland 248XL was discontinued, due to a shortage of components.
But now they have good news, the factory was able to locate the ‘hard-to-get’ components and can do one more production run. End of march 2016 this new production will be available again.


Travelling for private or for business, it always costs you money. But if you look around on this planet , when on the road,  you will be at least one experience richer when you are back home again.

End of October Avera-Distributing participated in the A+A Show in Dusseldorf. This is a show about safety at work. Here we showed the new Gearkeeper line of Tool Tethering products.

plaatjeDuring A+A tradeshow a video crew came it to make a promo video

During the show we made a video about the new GearKeeper solutions for tool tethering. We hope to be able to show this video very soon.

The A+A show is about safety at work. It was my first time to do this show and I was surprised by the large number of manufacturers of fall protection, flash lights, (safety)shoes, boots and an unbelievable number of producers of gloves.

Our ‘neighbour’ across the aisle was the company Top Glove from Malaysia. They are the largest manufacturer of gloves and produce pairs of gloves this year.

In their booth they had a plasma screen and all day long the promo video of the company was shown. The video ended with the corporate song.
During 4 days of A+A show I must have heard this song over 300 times.

In The Netherlands we are too much individuals to appreciate a corporate song. But maybe I am too much on the road to be still an original Dutch guy. I loved the song and the idea behind it.

Click HERE to see the youtube video of the corporate song.

For those who are interested in the complete corporate video of the Top Glove company, click HERE.

Travelling is enriching and inspiring, so I hope that very soon we will have an Avera-Distributing corporate song. If you are a composer or writer feel free to send your ideas for such a song.

Keep singing when you are ‘on the road again’.


Recently Midland introduced the first model of a new generation of action cameras. The new H5 looks more like a GoPro, the leader in the market of action cameras.

1Midland H5 Camera with yellow cover, also a black cover is included
in the standard packing.

After the multi-year experience in this sector with the XTC models designed with a longitudinal shape, Midland presents the brand new H line, characterized by a frontal form factor, that completes the range of action cameras and covers all possible uses, such as the requirements of sportsmen or enthusiast of outdoor activities.

H5 offers a lot for very little! Its small dimensions and its ease of use make H5 the perfect solution for your leisure time or a daily use.

Its form factor allows it to be easily worn for example on your chest.
Midland H5 guarantees high performances: Full HD 30fps with a sensor able to take top quality pictures up to 12MP; the built-in Wi-Fi allows to watch and share your photos and videos, thanks to the dedicated APP iSmart DV, compatible with iOS or Android.

2The integrated 1.5 inch LCD display allows to frame or watch your videos and photos without the need of a smartphone or tablet.

The H5 is fitted with many innovative functions: self-timer (you can select the time delay to shoot a photo), Time-lapse, photo burst (to take 3/5/10 photos per second), Motion detection (the camera automatically starts recording when a movement is detected).

Besides, H5 continuously records and when the card is full, it records over the oldest videos; it is also equipped with the Slow Motion mode to watch the videos in rallenty.

H5 is supplied in a full optional packaging including 20 accessories to combine and create the best mounting solution for your requirements.

Many accessories from the XTC series can also be used for the new H5 camera. This a list of Midland accessories.

XT POD-MINI = Monopod Mount 18 cm.
XT POD-2S = Telescopic Multicam 2-Section Monopod 80 cm.
XT POD-3S = Telescopic Multicam 3-Section Monopod 112 cm.
XTC Mount = XTC Mount for Handlebars and Tubes.
XTC Cap Mount = Cap Mount.
XTC Mount = Universal Mount for Rifles.
XTC Tree Mount
XTC Bow Mount

In the world of electronics it is not always the best product that wins a race. The Midland XTC series is great in performance and price. But the look was different from action camera market leader GoPro. I think that is why Midland is starting with this new look but still the better quality supplied.

The Midland H5 is available from stock at Avera-Distributing.
