Rugged, Lightweight Portable Power System Provides Reliable Power for Remote Field Applications
Press release date: July 31, 2014
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.
