BLUETTI, A renewable energy start-up, has once again broken their records after their huge crowdfunding success with them Bluetti AC200 Power Station last year, and their latest 5.1kWh home power station, the Bluetti EP500/Pro – has pulled over $1 million in only an hour at kickstarter.com and is now fast marching to the $2M milestone.
Why Consider the Bluetti EP500 Power Station?
These new power stations feature a more elegant and minimalist look, a 12V-30A output port for the RV crowd, up to 3000W pure sine wave inverter, and, yes, seamless UPS. But the price tag of these typically premium home battery products may be more important than ever.
Starts at only $2799 for the EP500($0.55 per watt hour), makes the EP500 series quite competitive even against the giants like Tesla’s Powerwall or Sonnencore. The BLUETTI EP500 family is plug-and-play type and not only it will work as a home backup power station, you can also shove it in the trunk of your car for a road trip or van life.
Bluetti EP500 B-Lynk APP
For the first time ever, BLUETTI is offering the remote control feature on their EP500 Series. With BLUETTIs exclusive B-Lynk connection technology, you can easily monitor your EP500/Pro’s status and adjust settings it whether it is near you or a thousand miles away with (WAN & LAN Connection). No more having to walk to a unit to determine remaining battery or inverter capacity.

Bluetti EP500 Fusion Box
If the 5.1kWh/3kW specs aren’t enough to cover your needs, feel free to get two of these and connect them together with BLUETTI’s Fusion Box. You can immediately double the capacity, voltage and power, that’s MASSIVE 10.2kWh and up to 6kW output at 240V, which means not only for the vital needs, you can also run your home air conditioner, clothes dryer, in-wall electric heater and other high power appliances totally off-grid with ease.
Bluetti EP500 Delivery & Warranty
As for the most important part about crowdfunding projects – delivery and warranty – BLUETTI said they will DELIVER the EP500 in August(start shipping in late May), and the Pro will be DELIVERED two months later, in October. Since Kickstarter won’t charge your card until the crowdfunding campaign reaches its deadline, you only need to wait about 3 months after you finished the payment for the EP500.
After backing the crowdfunding project, you’ll get a 3-year warranty out of the box, and by paying additional $699, you can enjoy 5 years of peace in mind.
This year could be the time, that BLUETTI breaks through. With the groundbreaking features of EP500 family, BLUETTI has obviously widened the gap with its early competitors, and stepped into a higher stage to compete against the market leaders.
