That`s where the Bluetti EP500 comes into the picture, this is a huge power station that can be moved easily and, offers some amazing features like quick charging, solar power charging, an App to manage the power station, etc. In case of power shutdown, etc.
In case of a power failure or maintenance shutdown, the 15 outlet sources allow you to power anything from laptops and air conditioners to your electric vehicles without breaking a sweat.
In July 2020, Bluetti made the initial move to replace traditional gasoline generators with their ground-breaking AC200 Model. The AC200 featured a 2000 Watt rated inverter with 1700 watt-hour battery capacity, a large array of outlets (including a 25A 12V outlet), and up to 700W solar input with an advanced built-in MPPT controller.
