Houston, TX, September 2 - Power systems innovator SouthWest Electronic Energy (SWE), has expanded their POW-R TOTE® line to include a variety of Solar Charger options. In addition to the AC plug-in DC Charger, POW-R TOTE can be outfitted with a 5W-124W Solar Charger thus enabling the unit to be fully remote for indefinite periods of time.  In addition, POW-R TOTE is now available in both 99Ah and 117Ah capacities allowing the user two options based on their power requirements. POW-R TOTE, originally employed by U.S. Marshals for quiet & efficient electrical energy, is available to everyone from military, emergency managers, marine, law enforcement agencies to fire/rescue operations and many more field applications. About the size of a lunchbox, and weighing only 23lbs, POW-R TOTE uses reliable, 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 virtually indestructible  in a watertight storm case which can 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, signal generators, lights and power tools. SWE will configure-to-order other connectors and energy capacities to meet customer’s unique needs. Recharging POW-R TOTE is easy with an optional external AC plug-in DC charger that plugs into any outlet or a custom or with a Solar charger which is available in increments from 5W to 124W.  POW-R TOTE also comes standard with SWE’s integrated intelligent battery management system, POW-R BMS®, which regulates the health & safety of the battery. A convenient voltmeter is also built into POW-R TOTE which indicates the power remaining in the battery at all times.

Lithium-Ion is the fastest growing type of battery because of its high energy density (weight-to-size ratio). POW-R TOTE lithium-ion delivers 2X longer run time and 2X more power at ½ the weight compared to a standard car battery. Reliable, safe, and clean with very low maintenance, lithium-ion is used in a broad spectrum of applications from land and underwater vehicles to personal items such as laptops and cell phones.
