Back in July, Bluetti announced the AC300, its new solar power station. This is the industry’s first modular solar power station. Along with it, the company also announced the accompanying LFP battery module, the B300 (3,072Wh).
The Bluetti AC300 started trending really fast after the announcement, in the US. It singled out California, Texas, Florida, and New York. That being said, two months after first announcing the devices, the AC300 and B300 are finally here, available to purchase.
Why should you use Solar over Gas generators?
There are a number of reasons why you may consider using solar generators over gas ones. They provide electricity from a renewable power source, from the sun or wind. So, you’re saving the environment, essentially.
On top of that, they provide quiet operation, around 35dB. The company also highlights low maintenance for such generators, as there are barely any moving parts. Such generators also provide you with seamless UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) when power outages occur.
Gas / propane generators are bad for the environment, and that’s not all
Gas / propane generators, on the other hand, are not good for the environment. Such generators must be used outside, as they release deadly toxic carbon monoxide. They also have a higher carbon footprint, and have a lot more moving parts than solar generators.
Add to that monthly fuel costs that you need to consider, as fuel is not free, unlike the energy provided by the sun. On top of all that, gas / propane generators are also quite loud at around 70dB.
Why should you opt for the Bluetti AC300?
The Bluetti AC300 has a number of benefits over gas / propane generators. Other than what we’ve already mentioned, for solar generators in general, this generator weighs only 44 pounds. Heavy duty gas-powered generators can be a lot heavier, up to 250 pounds. Do note that the external battery, the B300, weighs 74lbs.
That’s not all, though. The Bluetti AC300 is 100% modular. It can take up to four B300 battery modules per unit, which can give you 12,288Wh of power, if you fill in all the slots. That’s plenty of power, needless to say.
This solar power module allows you to transport vast amounts of power without a problem. The Bluetti AC300 uses top-of-the-line LFP cells which have 3,500+ life cycles, which leads up to 80-percent of the original capacity. In other words, if you put the device through one cycle every day, you’ll get 10 years of service life.
The Bluetti AC300 is capable of receiving 2,400 watts of MPPT solar charging input. The device is packed with a 3,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, which is able to adjust the AC charging rate (no need for a power brick).
If you connect the AC300 with two B300 battery modules, the device can be charged with both solar and AC simultaneously. In other words, you can get up to 5,400 watts of power input.
That’s not where the benefits end, though. The device allows for the connection of the Bluetti Fusion Box Pro. If you do that, you’ll be able to double the voltage, power, and capacity up to 6,000W, 240V, 24,576Wh.
Another detail that makes the Bluetti AC300 extremely easy to use, is the smartphone app. You can control it via WiFi with ease, a Bluetooth connection is also possible.
Where can you buy the AC300?
You can get all Bluetti products from the company directly, from bluettipower.com. The Bluetti AC300 paired with one B300 battery module can be yours for $2,899. The original price is $3,699, but you can get $800 off at the moment, though that discount is valid for a limited number of devices.
If you opt for the AC300 with two B300 modules, you’ll need to pay $3,648 ($850 off the original price of $4,498).
You can also save some additional cash when buying certain AC300 solar bundles, quite a lot of cash, actually. Do note that the orders will be delivered in 3 to 5 weeks from the purchase date, Bluetti confirmed.
The Bluetti AC200 MAX is back in stock
The Bluetti AC200 MAX is also back in stock, after being sold out when it debuted. The AC200 MAX and B230 battery modules can be purchased from the company’s website.
The AC200 MAX has a standard built-in 2,048Wh LFP battery pack (with expandable battery capabilities). This device can also be connected to both the B230 and B300 battery modules, unlike the AC300, which is only compatible with the B300 module.
The AC200 MAX can provide you with up to 8,192Wh, when connected with two B300 battery modules.
If you’re interested in the Bluetti AC200 MAX, you can get it for $1,799 thanks to a discount ($300 off). Some additional savings can be received if you purchase a bundle containing the AC200 MAX. Navigate to www.bluettipower.com for more information.
