Jackery is a solid, well known brand. Their DC voltages r regulated which is not common as compared with Rockpals, Aimtom, etc. Nearly all Bluetti products have regulated DC voltages like Jackery. Jackery appear to be behind Bluetti in their technology and features. Jackery still uses Li ion to keep their weight down. Newer Bluetti have LiFePO4 which have longer life/more cycles than Li ion. Bluetti typically charges faster than Jackery.

I have both a Jackery Explorer 240 and a Bluetti EB150.

Now this is a generator.

It's simply called a power station when referred to without the solar panels.

When you add on solar panels, the power station then is able to generate and store energy, and therefore, is called a generator. The Honda EU1000 is also a generator, albeit generated by burning gas. They both have their plus/minuses. The Honda is more powerful but less environmentally friendly. As well, it is a pain to carry a tank of gas with you on your trips and reeks if you spill it anywhere. Can also be a hazard.

With the BLuetti, does anyone know if one can charge the generator (either via 12V in a car or solar panel), and use it at the same time to say power a 12V fridge/freezer?

I believe most sogens do. However, I think that some manufacturers like Jackery dont recommend it.

For the Bluetti EB150 or EB240, one cannot charge by a vehicle directly via DC unless one uses an inverter via AC.

I have been looking at Jackery and GoLabs for quite some time and have seen deals on these products pop up on RFD here and there. Is Bluetti the best one to get as a portable power station?

How long or how many hours can the AC200P operate a air pump that requires 115V AC, 3.8A, 437W?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Around 3.5 or so hours....probably around 1600Wh due to inverter inefficiencies (about 80% efficient if I recall correctly). More if you have solar panels....maybe nearly non-stop during daytime if you have 500-700 W panels.

I think that Bluetti is the top dog at this time. The AC200Max looks nearly perfect based on Will and Hobotechs reviews.

Is this really the case? Can you not just use the Solar DC input port hooked up to a 12v cigarette port using the right adapters?

I have a Bluetti AC50S in my camper van, it powers my 12v mini fridge while charging via solar or via the 12v car cigarette port when driving. It does work really well.

Too expensive imo. I went with dual battery setup. I have yet to bring something that needs AC charging so no inverter yet. 100Ah powers my 53qt fridge for daysss

100AH LiFePo4 Battery - $750
Smart DC-DC Charger w/ Solar MPPT - $260
700W Inverter - $160
Wiring Harness - $50

Total = $1220, not including the cost of your time to install.

The EB150 and EB240 at the sale prices are extremely compelling. Higher capacity, more powerful inverters, and turnkey solutions that require zero time / electrical knowledge.

If only the EcoFlow Delta Pro was available in Canada. That thing has way more power.

These could be great solutions for a shed solution LOL. Can they stay installed for the winter? Is i easy to change the batteries?

Which one, the DIY or the Bluetti?

I think if you're looking to install something semi-permanent and don't need portability, the DIY LiFePo4 option is more compelling. These lithium batteries should not be charged/discharged in freezing temps (<0c) so you need to either get a low-temp rated one (ex. Renogy self-heating batteries) or install your own 12v heating solution (ex. an RV water heating pad, pretty cheap) that will keep the batteries warm enough to use.

How safe are these Bluetti or similar solar generator units for storing in a vehicle in the summer when it gets warm and/or in the winter when it gets cold? On a road trip, is it advisable to keep these generators plugged into your 12v car cigarette socket to keep it charging while it is running a 12v appliance (ie. 12v fridge/freezer) when running the car?

Is there a product that would be able to provide intermittent A/C (120 volt) power?

My situation is a 30 amp (120 volt) RV plug ..... on a RV....... where the park power incoming voltage can drop below 103 volts.

At that point my Progressive EMS cuts power to the RV until the voltage recovers... usually within 5 minutes.

What would be ideal is some sort of device that could take over the 30 amp 120 volt A/C ....like a big honking UPS... until voltage came back on. ..at which point that device could recharge itself off of the (often crappy) incoming park power.
