Why do you require such a big portable power station
Many of us go for campings and RV trips, and we may have been in a situation where we would have required a good amount of electricity, for powering our mini appliances like the mini-fridge or lighting our camps.
Many times due to unavailability on the power source, our trip is not enjoyable, To address this situation, we have with us the Bluetti AC200, A Portable Power Station with long battery backup.
Generally, people who live in big houses have a fuel generator, which runs on diesel. But these power stations create air pollution, instead, people can use an electric power station like the Bluetti AC200.
