The BLUETTI Lineup
BLUETTI has been making portable power devices for more than a decade. It continues to grow its lineup with a wider range of power output and modular designs that let people build a setup to meet their needs.
In this article, you’ll find new additions to the brand’s line of power offerings as well as new ways to use them. They can connect to your cellphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to act as a remote control or real-time monitor. BLUETTI also offers a warranty on all of its power devices.
Portable Solar Generators
Carry-along power options mean these can come along on road trips, campouts, or for crewing a long mountain adventure or fastest known time attempt.
The BLUETTI EB3A, EB55, and EB70S units can charge your cellphone, walkie-talkie, camera, lights, and more. They provide a way to stay connected to the outside world and bring along a few of the comforts of home to even the farthest destinations you can imagine.
They range from 268 watt-hours up to 716 watt-hours and can be paired with the brand’s solar panels for recharging.
The Versatile Power Monster
The AC200MAX takes portable power stations to the max and will help you power up even the most electronics-heavy campsite, such as if you are planning to work remotely on an extended running and travel adventure. It has 16 outlets to run several appliances and devices simultaneously for hours. These include the built-in 30 amp NEMA TT-30 outlet and a 12 volt, 30 amp super-powerful DC outlet made with RV enthusiasts in mind.
It also has a 2,200-watt pure sine wave inverter and a 2,048-watt-hour capacity to fulfill most power demands. If you need more, it can connect with either the BLUETTI B230 or B300 expansion battery to increase its capacity and power — up to 6,144 watt-hours.
There are seven ways to recharge — AC, dual AC, AC plus solar, solar, car, generator, and lead battery — and BLUETTI says it’s lithium iron phosphate battery has 3,500-plus life cycles to 80% charge.
Expandable Power Centers
Launched in 2022, the AC500 quickly became one of the brand’s biggest portable power station models. To unleash even more power, the AC500 base power station can be paired with the B300S to increase its capacity from 3,072 to 18,432 watt-hours. The combo boosts to a max 8,000-watt input rate (AC plus solar) to charge from 0% to 80% in one hour.
These combos can recharge in six different ways: AC, solar, car, generator, lead-acid battery, and dual charging (AC and AC plus solar). They’re options as gift ideas for outdoor enthusiasts and DIYers alike.
Home Backup Power
Equipped with a 5,100-watt-hour capacity and a 2,000- or 3,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, respectively, the EP500 and EP500Pro are both all-in-one power stations designed for home charging. But, according to the brand, they can work for off-grid power too, and you can transport them easily via their wheels.
The brand’s Smart Home Panel lets you monitor its role in your home’s grid with a 24/7 uninterrupted power supply function for keeping essential appliances running during a power failure. Flexible recharging helps the EP500 stay on.
BLUETTI makes solar panels with five different wattages, from 68 to 420 watts, which are part of the model names: PV68, PV120, PV200, PV350, and PV420. The PV68 and PV420 models are the latest additions to a range of panels.
All of the models fold for portability to your favorite backcountry campsite. And BLUETTI says setting them up with the right tilt can help capture the most solar rays for intake, up to a listed 23.4% conversion rate, which is high for most solar panels, to feed your devices throughout the day.
The brand credits the panels’ use of monocrystalline solar cells and multi-layered ethylene tetrafluoroethylene “to ensure better light transmittance, higher efficiency, and longer lifespan.”
As part of its BLUETTILOVE campaign, the brand is running a social media giveaway during its Valentine’s Day sale.
There are two options to participate: You can upload photos and share your sweetest memories or love story or post an anonymous text message expressing your affection.Shop BLUETTI
