Powerful Lithium-Ion Battery Technology Provides Safe, Reliable Energy for Military, Law Enforcement, Emergency, and Fire/Rescue Field Operations

HOUSTON -- A rugged, lightweight, 12V/100Ah portable power system, by power systems innovator Southwest Electronic Energy Group (SWE), is breaking new ground in higher capacity and  compact-convenient energy for wherever standard power sources are unavailable.   POW-R Tote®, originally employed by law enforcement for quiet electrical energy during long stakeouts, is now available to everyone from police agencies to first responders to military, fire/rescue operations and many more field applications.   About the size of a lunchbox, and weighing only 23lbs, the eco-friendly and reliable POW-R Tote uses safe, powerful Lithium-Ion battery technology to deliver 2X longer run time and 2X more power at ½ the weight when compared to a typical 12V lead acid  battery commonly used in similar applications.
