Technology continues to improve year after year and make it easier for us to do our jobs from wherever we are, even to the point where we can have electricity with us wherever we are, without having to rely on a wall socket.
For years, trying to get electricity while on the road out away from civilization, or even just tailgating, meant noisy gas generators or plugging into your car battery hoping you didn’t drain it completely before it was time to head home.
Thankfully, solar technology has been steadily improving over the years to the point where solar-powered generators are not only just as good, if not better at powering our lives, they’re much more affordable too.
Bluetti is a company that got its start just a few years ago and they make solar-powered generators that are affordable and easy to use. In fact, you can charge them in quite a few different ways including gas generators and car batteries; solar panels are just one of the ways to charge them.
The company’s newest models, the AC300 and AC200 Max bring even more power to your adventures. With 3000W and 2200W output power, respectively, these generators can keep most everything you would ever need with you going for quite a while. And the optional solar panels mean you can recharge using nature’s greatest power source.
You also don’t have to worry about recharging them quickly. The AC300 can fully charge in just 1.5 hours so you can go for a nice hike and come back ready to send more emails.
Both generators can also be plugged into additional batteries to give you a maximum of up to 12,288Wh of power storage if you need it. With Bluetti’s Fusion Box Pro, you can connect two AC300s to double the power and capacity. Get up to 6,000W of continuous power, 24.6kWh capacity in total, and 10.4kW of solar input capability.
This setup can easily be an emergency power center and run your home essentials for over a week, or with enough solar panels, you can even run your whole house, off-grid indefinitely.
Despite the fact that the AC200 MAX looks identical to the AC200P model, it comes with a lot of changes and improvements that make the AC200 Max the better option.
For starters, the AC200 MAX features higher continuous output power at 2,200W from its pure sine wave inverter, a 100W PD 3.0 USB-C port, an upgraded MPPT controller that can handle up to 900W of solar input, and a built-in 30A NEMA TT-30 outlet designed especially for RVs.
Bluetti listened to the feedback it received from some of its previous models and added Bluetooth connection and wireless controls to the AC 200 MAX. The generator can be controlled via the Bluetti smartphone app that is available for both iOS and Android, and it too supports expandable battery packs.
The AC300 does not come with an internal battery pack but its modular design allows you to mate the B300 battery module with the AC300. This new modular allows for a heavy-duty unit like Bluetti AC300 to significantly reduce the weight of each single unit but also allows you to replace any or all the batteries, if necessary, in the future. And since the system is modular, you can carry each module individually.
With everything that’s been going on this past year, it is certainly enough to make you want to get away from it all, but you don’t have to leave your gadgets and the convenience of electricity at home.
If you’re fed up with city life and ready to get out and explore nature for a while, especially if you’re able to work from home now, why can’t home be on the road? Head out of town and take a couple of these generators with you and let the road be your office.
Sending emails from a tent surrounded by nature sure sounds pretty great.
