Next Gen Lithium to Power U.S. Open, WON Bass

Peoria, Ariz. – Peoria, Ariz. based Next Gen Lithium, manufacturer of premium lithium batteries, has reached an agreement to become the official battery of the 2021 WON Bass U.S. Open, and the 2022 WON Bass Open events – the Arizona, California and U.S. Open.


The agreement means that winners of the 2021 WON Bass U.S. Open, and the 2022 Opens will have their Bass Cat / Mercury prize boats powered a 36-volt Next Gen Lithium valued at $1000. Along with that, at each event, the pro angler who finishes first out of the money will receive a Next Gen Lithium 12V 100A Cranking battery, valued at $950.


Kevin Johnson, President of Next Gen Lithium said that partnering with an organization that caters to the most dedicated tournament anglers in the West made sense for the company.  “There is a lot that anglers don’t understand about lithium batteries; their benefits extend far beyond weight reduction and being able to share all of that with them is important,” said Johnson.  “An organization like WON Bass has a field of the most dedicated anglers in the region and being there at their events, makes sense for Next Gen Lithium, partnering with a first-class organization like WON Bass will help expand our brand.”


From a personal perspective, Johnson knows the reputation of the company and its events.  “Being a tournament angler myself from the West, I know what a historic event the U.S. Open is,” said Johnson. “There is not one serious tournament angler in the country who doesn’t know about the U.S. Open is, so from a business perspective, we are extremely excited to be a part of it, but this is also something I’m personally proud to announce.”


WON Bass Tournament Director Bill Egan echoed Johnson’s sentiments.  “It is always exciting to have new sponsors partner with WON Bass and our Open Series of events, but it’s even better when you have angler owned businesses support it as well as fish the events,” said Egan. “Kevin has been a long time WON Bass angler and supporter and Next Gen Lithium partnering with us to be the exclusive battery of the U.S. Open this year and the entire 2022 season is appreciated and rewarding.”
