BLUETTI AC500 modular home switchboard ends power outages

Think of the new BLUETTI AC500 & B300S modular power station as a power bank for your whole home. It can provide enough power to keep your home up and running during a single or multi-day outage – and ready to use again after about two hours of charging.

Its modular design lets you control how much power you need, and the system is portable so you can keep all your home comforts when you go off-grid…

A home power plant is designed to provide peace of mind against everything from a routine power outage to an emergency such as a hurricane or flood that can disrupt the power supply for days.

Unlike smaller systems designed to power a few gadgets, the AC500 with B300S battery packs is sturdy enough to power all your home appliances, including AC.

BLUETTI AC500 & B300S modular design

One of the best features of the BLUETTI AC500 system is its modular design.

With an all-in-one power station, you need to know in advance how much power you’ll need – and once you’ve made the purchase, you’re stuck with it. With the BLUETTI system, you can start with just one battery and add additional batteries later, up to a maximum of six.

The brain of the system – and the unit with nine different sockets – is the AC500. You then connect one or more B300S batteries to this.

Capacity

Each battery pack powers a typical home for one day, allowing you to live off-grid for up to six days. The maximum capacity is a whopping 18,432 Wh delivered via a 5,000 W inverter. You can even connect two systems together to double the capacity to 36,864 Wh (requires Fusion Box Pro, sold separately)!

You can charge the system with a whopping 8,000 W. With two B300S batteries connected, this will charge you from 0% to 100% in about two hours. So if you find yourself in a power outage situation, as is sometimes the case with natural emergencies, you can quickly charge your system before the next power outage.

Portability

The BLUETTI AC500 isn’t just a home power station, it’s also a portable system that you can quickly and easily move to a motorhome for completely off-grid trips. The unit weighs 66 pounds (30 kg) and measures 20.5 × 12.8 × 14.1 inches (520 × 325 × 358 mm).

If you’re on a road trip and can recharge at lunch stops, you’ll have 0% to 50% capacity in just 30 minutes.

But AC power is not the only way to charge the system. You can also use solar panels, a gas generator, lead-acid batteries, or even your car’s cigarette lighter.

Once parked, the system gives you more power than a typical gas generator without noise, fuel costs or pollution.

App control and monitoring

BLUETTI also removes the guesswork from the battery. The accompanying app shows you exactly how much power you are using and how much capacity is left. You can also arm and disarm the system remotely,

Likewise, while charging, you can simply open the app to see the charging speed and capacity.

Lifespan

Unlike systems that use lead-acid batteries, the BLUETTI B300S battery packs are lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP):

  • No maintenance
  • Long life (10+ years)
  • Safe
  • lightweight
  • High efficiency
  • Fast Charging

An advanced built-in battery management system (BMS) ensures that the batteries are charged and discharged to maximize their lifespan. The system comes with a 3 year warranty.

Sustainability

BLUETTI’s vision is to provide users with an eco-friendly experience while creating a sustainable future for the planet. The company has over 10 years of industry experience in both indoor and outdoor energy storage solutions.

The BLUETTI AC500 & B300S System is available today from Indiegogo with a special pre-order price.
