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.

Housed in a Heavy Duty Storm Case and Equipped with Low and High Power Connectors

POW-R Tote® is housed in a virtually indestructible, heavy-duty, watertight storm case to handle harsh environments.   Two power connectors come standard:   An automobile 12v auxiliary outlet (car plug) powers and recharges cells phones, notebook computers, tablets and other low power devices.  An Anderson SB50 Powerclaw® connector is also provided for higher power gear like surveillance, drugs test kits and power tools.   SWE will configure-to-order other connectors and energy capacities to meet customers unique needs.  Recharging POW-R Tote is easy with an external 115V/240V AC adapter that plugs into any outlet.
