Whether you're camping, planning a big road trip, or hosting a large outdoor gathering, there's no reason to go without power. These days, there are plenty of options for portable power from traditional, noisy generators to wholly unique camp stoves capable of charging a device from the fire. However, most of these solutions are lacking in one way or another. Some are heavy and unwieldy, while others just don't put out enough power to be useful, and most have to be charged from home. But what if I told you there was a solution with ample power that could be charged just about anywhere?
Clean power from just about anywhere
Solar is a great way to generate power without taxing the environment by burning through a dwindling supply of fossil fuels. You've probably seen at least a few houses in your very own neighborhood with row after row of solar panels lining the roof, but if you've ever looked into adding solar to your own home, you know it's a lot of money up front. Moreover, it only really works if your roof is at the right angle to get lots of sun every day because the panels are too large and heavy to move regularly.
However, if you're not trying to power an entire house, a few small panels could be all you need. Small, portable solar panels can not only be arranged for optimum sun exposure, but you can also bring them on any adventure, giving you ready access to power whether you're in your backyard or in the middle of the woods, miles from civilization. It was with this idea in mind that Bluetti designed its latest power stations.
Bluetti EB70: your power source on the go
Bluetti, an international company that has spent a decade innovating power storage, produces some of the best power stations on the market and now you can get the EB70, its newest power station that works hand-in-hand with the company's compact, portable solar panels. While all of Bluetti's power stations can be charged traditionally on a home outlet or even using a car's charger, now you can also charge your power station with solar - saving you green while also cutting back on your carbon footprint.
Bluetti's solar panels aren't just small and compact, either. They incorporate cutting-edge technology to charge faster and more efficiently than other panels. Thanks to the advanced MPPT technology and the EB70's max input of 200W, this power station can be fully recharged in four hours or less from solar panels, a rate comparable to charging from a home outlet. The panels themselves incorporate monocrystalline solar cells with a light transmittance of 95-97%, keeping pace with the best in the world.
Solar innovation isn't all these power stations have going for them either. The Bluetti EB70 has a whopping 716Wh capacity and is rated at 700W. It's capable of powering up to 11 devices simultaneously and features two 100W USB type-C ports for fast charging mobile devices. The EB70 also has four 110V AC outlets capable of charging devices under 700W, two 5V/3A USB Type-A ports, two regulated 12V/10A DC outputs, a 12V/10A car port, and even a 15W wireless charging pad!
You also won't throw out your back lugging around the EB70. This power station weighs in at just over 20 lbs and can easily be carried with just one hand. The SP200 Solar Panel is only 14.3 lbs and can be mounted on an RV or set up just about anywhere with its convenient, adjustable kickstand.
What are you waiting for?
Although Bluetti normally offers a great value for your buck, for a limited time you can get your very own Bluetti EB70 Power Station and SP200 Solar Panel for the best price yet as part of the Bluetti Super Summer Sale! The EB70 is currently available in Space Grey, Vibrant Red, or my personal favorite, the cool Mint Green, starting at just $499, a savings of $100 off the MSRP. You can also bundle your EB70 with the SP200 Solar Panel starting at just $599, saving $210. These are the best prices Bluetti has ever offered and are only available for a limited time, so don't hesitate or you may find a disappointing "Sold Out".
Even more power from Bluetti
As great a power station as the EB70 is, sometimes you need even more power on the go. Fortunately, Bluetti has a variety of power stations ranging from 99Wh/26756mAh, all the way up to 5,100Wh/3,000W. Even better, the Bluetti Super Summer Sale means you can save a boatload on some of its most popular models.
Take the high performing AC200P. This deceptively small power station packs a massive punch - 2,000Wh capacity and 2,000W rating to be precise! It's solar ready and compatible with Bluetti's solar panels, capable of fully charging in under four hours. If you need it charged even faster, it can dual charge from solar and AC cutting that time in close to half. The AC200P features 17 outlets to power virtually any device, including six AC outlets, one DC12V/10A outlet, two DC 12V/3A ports, one PD 60W USB-C fast charging port, four 5V/3A USB-A charging ports, and two wireless charging spots.
For something a little less massive, the EB150 power station is also included in the Bluetti Summer Sale. The EB150 has a 1,500Wh capacity and is rated at 1000W. This power station can be charged in less than five hours and comes with a variety of outlets, including two AC 110V outlets, one 12V/9A DC outlet, one 45W USB-C charging port, and four 5V/3A USB-A ports.
Both of these incredible power stations can be bought alone for the lowest price to date, but you can save even more by bundling either with Bluetti's incredible solar panels.
