You probably remember Bluetti as we’ve covered some of their products recently. It is the Chinese renewable energy company behind successful crowdfunding campaigns like the AC200 and EP500/Pro power stations which raised more than $6 million and $3 million respectively. The newest Bluetti EB70 was announced last week and now it has officially accepted orders on its website. The launching price is $499 after the $100 discount.
Bluetti has released the EB70 power station and SP200 200W portable solar panel at the same time; This is considered a great combination offering an eco-friendly solar generator on the go, perfect for outdoor activities like camping or overlanding. The Bluetti EB70 is a portable power station weighing just over 21 lbs and featuring a foldable handle design; Therefore, you can easily carry it around by grasping the handle. Bluetti also makes it more durable with the fire-proof ABS+PC plastic exterior and rubber feet. This is one of the most compact power stations with 700W output power.
Safety is a primary concern of consumers when purchasing any power generator. Fortunately, Bluetti reduce the chance of overheating, fires, and explosions by using the stable and durable LiFePO4 battery pack and advanced internal protection controller. The station can last over 2,500 charge cycles before the capacity drops to 80%.
The 700W pure sine wave inverter is obviously not as powerful as seen on full-size power stations, however, it is more than enough to power all of your laptops, mobile devices, or small home appliances. Therefore, you can totally be confident that you will stay connected and run essential devices during adventures or power outage. Apart from 4 AC outlets, the station is equipped with two 100W USB-C 3.0 Power Delivery ports which are great to recharge two laptops like 16-inch MacBook Pro at full speed simultaneously. The two ports work independently to provide the total output power of 200W. It can recharge the MacBook Pro up to 6 times. Another benefit is that you totally can leave your bulky laptop chargers at home and bring only a single USB-C cable.
If you buy the SP200 solar panel, you can use it to recharge this power station for an eco-friendly solution. The solar input supports up to 200W, so a full charge could take around 4-5 hours, depending on the amount of sunlight. You can take advantage of your current solar panels as long as the open circuit voltage is in the 12~28V range. You can also recharge the EB70 via an included 200W AC adapter (25.2V, 8A), a cigarette lighter port on your car, or a gas-fired generator.
As compared to similar products like the Jackery (518wh/500W) or Ecoflow (576Wh/600W), the Bluetti EB70 is obviously a better choice as it offers more at the same price. This is also a great upgrade from the classic AC50S (300W/500Wh). If you’re interested, you can order the product on its official website.
