Whether adventuring off the grid, or working remotely from home, a reliable power source is essential. The powerful duo of the BLUETTI AC500 power station can support up to six B300S companion batteries to offer an 18,432Wh capacity and it can withstand 10,000-watt surges while powering lights, appliances, and personal electronics off the grid.‏

Building off past models, this new power station and battery pack represent the brand’s best output performance.

This heavyweight, modular power station offers several AC and USB outlets, and wireless device charging pads. Plus, users can recharge it in seven different ways.

Powerful Duo

Last year, BLUETTI launched a modular solar power station (AC300) and LFP battery module (B300).

Now comes more powerful successors, the AC500 Expandable Power Station and B300S Battery Pack. Each AC500 power station can scale up with as many as six B300S batteries for a combined 18,432Wh of power. That’s enough to power several appliances through a power blackout.

Combined, the two units can work together as a home backup power station or a portable power station. It can also be used to run an off-grid home, work as an emergency backup, or just save you money on electric bills. Campers, RVers, and van lifers may find it provides enough power to use for multiple days before recharging.

In remote locales, where power interruptions are more common, the AC500 can provide some peace of mind. It boasts an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system to prevent data loss or hardware damage during a power outage. It can detect the blackout and start supplying power within 20 milliseconds.

BLUETTI AC500

  • AC500 is modular and compatible with B300 and B300S battery packs (18,432Wh with six batteries)
  • A 5,000W inverter (10,000W surge)
  • 7 ways to recharge
  • Built-in advanced BMS (Battery Management System)  and LFP (lithium ferrophosphate) battery for prolonged lifespan
  • Split Phase Bonding can connect two AC500s to double performance (requires Fusion Box Pro, sold separately)
  • Monitor and control with the BLUETTI app

Scale Up

BLUETTI explains the power station’s inverter uses pure sine wave for 5,000W continuous AC output and can handle up to a 10,000W surge.

The AC500 has no built-in battery, and the B300S battery pack has a 3,072Wh capacity. However, you can scale up with six battery packs, but the Fusion Box Pro accessory (sold separately) also lets you connect two AC500s. This boosts the output to 240V/6,000W and the capacity to 36,864Wh.

That’s enough juice to power essential home appliances for days or weeks. Add solar panels to the mix and you flirt with power independence at home or in your remote cabin.

Charging Specs

The brand uses a LiFePO4 battery for long-term durability and claims 3,500+ charging cycles to 80% of its original capacity. The brand estimates it will hold up for 10 years of use. This sets it apart from other power stations and banks using lithium-ion batteries since lithium iron phosphate batteries claim to offer high safety, low toxicity, and a long cycle life.

The AC500 can be charged by AC, solar, generator, lead-acid battery, and dual- or triple-charging methods.

BLUETTI has no official charge times listed for solar and dual-AC charging yet. But together, the plug-in wall outlet and solar panels can charge the AC500 as fast as an hour (max. 8,000W input).

Example lifespans powering different devices follow:

  • Laptop, 58W, 270 hours
  • Refrigerator, 360W, 43.5 hours
  • Coffee maker, 1,000W, 15.7 hours
  • Air conditioner, 1,800W, 8.7 hours
