SWE Battery Safety Awareness

Southwest Electronic Energy is excited to offer the opportunity to host a SWE Battery Safety Awareness seminar presented at your facility, or to visit and tour our facility in Missouri City, Texas for a speaker-lead presentation, or to view the SWE Battery Safety Awareness video.

There are inherent risks in the handling of battery packs made with primary lithium cells. SWE's Battery Safety Awareness seminar provides helpful information on the safe handling of primary lithium.

SWE packs are marked with the Warning: "Lithium battery, fire, explosion and severe burn hazard. Do not short circuit, charge, force over discharge, disassemble, crush, penetrate, incinerate or heat above 150 C (302 F), or the battery may leak or explode". However, knowing what to look for and how to react is also important. An informed workforce is a safe workforce.


Company acknowledges and agrees that SWE makes no representations or warranties regarding the safety video or its battery packs, including their fitness for any particular purpose. SWE specifically disclaims all warranties as to its battery packs.


In exchange for good and valuable consideration, including but not limited to the battery packs, and expressly acknowledging the adequacy of that consideration, Company releases, waives, and discharges SWE of any and all liability arising from or associated with the purchase, sale,  or use of the SWE battery packs, the safety video and seminar. This release expressly includes Company’s release of any claims under any theory of negligence, including SWE’s own negligence, and any claims for breach of warranty, strict liability, or failure to warn by SWE.
