For nearly 20 years Vertical Partners West has worked to promote a culture of integrity, innovative thinking, exceptional customer service, while creating immense brand loyalty. We aim to meet the needs of our customers whether, thru a simple, off-the-shelf power solution or an extremely complex custom solution. VPW will see you through your project.

As a premier power solution company based in the U.S. we consistently vet our supply chain to assure we are using only the highest quality resources. We source the highest quality, matched lithium-ion cells produced using advanced production techniques. Our validated manufacturing SPC (statistical product control) yields a low variation of our product’s key performance parameters. Well-structured sourcing and quality control reduces the time to certification and regulatory compliance and ultimately time to market.

TESTIMONIALS

As an action sports cinematographer I have to be ready for anything. We rarely get a second chance to catch that perfect shot, so I have to count on my equipment to be rock solid and reliable. Venom batteries and chargers have always provided the power and consistency we count on in the field.

Todd Moen Testimonial imageTodd Moen, Catch Magazine

After an extensive due diligence we decided to work with Venom Power, time has proven to be the right decision. For starters we can ship our batteries using ground transportation, being Venom is a US based company. Their superb build quality of their professional products is the best we have seen and experienced. And most important to us is their excellent support, quick, diligent and predictable, just as we need. We will most definitely continue trusting Venom Power to supply our power needs.

Todd Golley Testimonial imageTodd Golley, COO/Founder Aker - Agricultural UAV Service Provider

As a licensed commercial UAS firm, we rely on Venom batteries to power our systems so we can provide flight services and train our students. These batteries have proven themselves in extreme temperatures and under demanding conditions, and the well-balanced cells consistently perform. All of our Venom products provide consistent results that we have come to rely on, and in most cases, have outperformed the competition. We trust the Venom team for our power requirements because the batteries are well-constructed, they work better than expected, and the staff provides unparalleled customer service.
