Modern energy storage company BLUETTI spends a lot of time thinking about power outages and natural disasters for somewhat obvious reasons. Going a step further, the brand recently introduced a comprehensive set of safety guidelines to help everyday people be as prepared as possible for unexpected and increasingly unavoidable challenges. That’s in addition to the brand’s existing range of portable power stations, which deliver brilliant backup and steadfast performance in times of need either at home or on the road. Here’s everything you need to know about BLUETTI’s latest efforts.
How to Prepare for Natural Disasters
“It’s better to prepare and prevent than repair and repent” is both the motto and philosophy behind BLUETTI’s recent safety guidelines. The guidelines aim to ensure absolute preparation for what’s become an inevitable occurrence in modern life, i.e. when extreme weather or a natural disaster disrupts power service, causes damage or injury, or—in extreme cases—prompts an evacuation of the area.
Key takeaways include the following:
- Stay well-informed via trustworthy sources such as local news outlets, emergency management agencies, and reliable social media platforms.
- Subscribe to government emergency notifications so as to expedite the delivery of important information in real-time.
- Familiarise yourself with designated evacuation pathways and assembly areas in the locality.
- Develop a comprehensive emergency kit, which includes non-perishable items such as portable water, medication, first aid, flashlights, batteries, battery-operated radios, and vital documents.
- Equip yourself with at least one (if not more) backup electricity source such as a portable power station.
BLUETTI’s Range of Backup Power Sources
Given the role of technology and communication in everyday life, it’s just as important to own a backup power supply as it is an emergency kit. BLUETTI has you covered with their full range of portable power stations, solar generators, and battery backups. Let’s take a closer look.
AC300+B300 Home Battery Backup
This 100 per cent modular system supports up to four B300 battery modules for a total capacity of 12,288Wh and a solar charging capacity of 2,400 W. There are seven different ways one can recharge this glorious product (and quickly), including wall outlet, car battery, and solar panel. Combine it with one of the brand’s Smart Home Panels to make it part of your overall home grid for an interconnected system. And when disaster strikes, it offers trusty backup power for multiple days at a time. Don’t stay home without one!
EP500 Solar Power Station
Equal parts versatile, advanced, and user-friendly, this solar power station on wheels comes with modern features like a smart touchscreen and remote app control. It uses a 5,100Wh LiFePO₄ battery and a 2,000W pure sine wave inverter to support multiple devices simultaneously and can accommodate 1,200W solar charging (amongst other things). This is the all-in-one solution you’ve been looking for and it’s presented in a sleek and compact framework.
EB3A Portable Power Station
For those on a budget, don’t fret because BLUETTI still has you covered by way of the EB3A Portable Power Station. Lightweight by design and more energy efficient than traditional counterparts, this gas-free solar generator can recharge to the tune of 80 per cent in as little as 30 minutes. While no slouch at home, it’s also compact, safe, and versatile enough for camping trips, off-grid excursions, and weekend getaways. Use its array of outlets and ports to charge multiple devices at once, including drones, phones, mini-fridges, and more.
EB55 Portable Power Station
Here we have another affordable and compact option that’s ideal for getaways and more efficient than traditional generators. It can power up to 13 devices at once and help reduce carbon emissions in the process (when recharged via solar panels). A wireless charging pad is part of the overall package and is but one among a slew of benefits lying in wait. Grab this thing by the handle and go.
EB70S Portable Power Station
Putting huge things in a relatively small package, the EB70S Portable Power Station measures 12.6 x 8.5 x 8.7 inches and weighs just over 21 pounds. Like its compact brethren (the EB55 and EB3A), this modern solution is perfect for travel but no less functional at home as a backup power source. It can be fully recharged using solar panels, which is about as close to a “free lunch” as energy consumption can get. Featuring a LiFePO4 battery and multiple ports, it delivers over 2500 life cycles of use for all your off-grid adventures or when disaster strikes.
It’s a crazy and unpredictable world out there and one can never be too prepared. BLUETTI wants to ensure maximum safety among its customers and non-customers alike. Be sure to follow the guidelines laid out above so that you’re not caught off-guard during the next power outage. And for all your backup energy needs either at home or away, check out the brand’s stellar range of portable power stations. Natural disasters, meet sustainable solutions.
