BLUETTI EB3A Portable Power Station (600W Ouput / 268Wh Capacity)

Portable power stations make for great back-up energy solutions to have at your disposable. While the main benefit of having one is obviously the fact that these battery-powered devices provide you with a source of electrical power on demand, there are also still other reasons to get a portable power station. Firstly, by having a portable power station at hand, you can ultimately ensure that you always have a secondary source of electrical power available when needed, meaning you won’t have to rely solely on your city’s power grid during emergencies like unexpected power outages or natural disasters. Furthermore, portable power stations are also better and cleaner back-up energy sources to have in comparison to gas generators, which emit obnoxious sounds and highly-poluting noxious fumes. Lastly, by having a portable power station with you on road-trips or camping-trips, you’ll always be able to provide power to any electrical appliances and other portable devices that you take with you so that they continue running, even if your main source of electrical power runs out of juice or shuts down unexpectedly. So, if you’re looking for a portable power station that’s affordable, powerful, and reliable, then check out the BLUETTI EB3A Portable Power Station.

The BLUETTI EB3A is a portable power station powered by a 268.8Wh capacity LiFePO4 battery that’s equipped with a 600W AC Pure Sine Wave Inverter which supports up to 1,200W of Surge Power, integrating a built-in LCD Screen, a versatile connectivity panel that supports up to 430W of Input Power via Dual Fast Charging, featuring a 12-28V~8.5A Solar and 12/24V Car Charging DC Input port (shared) and a 268W AC Input port with support to 350W Turbo Charging, plus a total of 9 different output ports, including a 12V Car Output DC Outlet port, two 12V DC5521 Outlet ports, two USB-A Output ports, a 100W PD USB-C Output port, two 120V AC Outlet ports that can offer 600W of Output Power, and a 15W Wireless Charging Pad, all while also featuring 6 different recharging methods, 6 Power-Safety Functions, an Eco Mode and a UPS Mode, plus Bluetooth Connectivity, and also remote Monitoring and Smart Controls via its App.

Then, when it comes to its connectivity panel, note that the BLUETTI EB3A’s connection ports are divided into three (x3) separate sections that ultimately make it easy and straightforward for users to operate this portable power station, including a DC Output Section (at the top left and below its LCD Screen), an AC and DC Input Section (at the bottom left), and a AC Output Section (at the bottom right).

Starting at the top-left of its connectivity panel, we have its DC Output Section, which integrates a 12V/10A Car Output DC Outlet port, followed by two (x2) 12V/10A DC5521 5.5mm Outlet ports, which is then followed by two (x2) 5V/3A USB-A Output ports, and then by a 100W PD USB-C 3.0 Output port.

Then, at the bottom left of the device’s connectivity panel, we have its AC and DC Input Section, which integrates a 12-28V~8.5A Solar Charging DC Input port (which supports up to 200W of Solar Input) that also doubles as a 12/24V Car Charging DC Input port (by connecting the device to a car’s Cigarrete Lighter Power-port), along with a 268W AC Input port with support to 350W Turbo Charging, plus an AC Circuit Breaker that works as the device’s Overload Protection Switch.

Moving to the bottom right of the device’s connectivity panel, we have its AC Output Section, which essentially integrates two (x2) 120V/5A AC Outlet ports that can offer 600W of Output Power in total, while also boasting support up to 1,200W of Surge Power.

Finally, integrated at the top-side of the device, there’s also a 15W Wireless Charging Pad that can be used to recharge the battery of devices that support Qi Wireless Charging.

CONNECTIVITY

As said earlier, this portable power station also features Bluetooth Connectivity, which is used as its connection method to establish a wireless connection with its Smartphone Companion App (discussed in more detail further ahead).

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

In terms of the device’s power-source, as said before, the BLUETTI EB3A is powered by a LiFePO4 battery pack that has a total battery-capacity of 268.8Wh (12Ah), which works based on state-of-the-art Battery Management System technology.

Its 268.8Wh LiFePO4 battery system ultimately makes this portable power station capable of recharging a 60W drone around 4.5 times, a 100W-battery laptop 3.5 times, an iPhone 12 for 25 times, and a 5W battery-powered digital camera for around 50 times, as well as providing continuous electrical power for a 20W Fan for 11 hours, to a 60W mini-fridge for 3.6 hours, to a 5W Light for 30 hours, and to a 25W CPAP (Pontinuous Positive Airway Pressure) Machine for 9 hours.

It’s also important to note that the BLUETTI EB3A’s 268.8Wh LiFePO4 battery system is rated to have approximately 2,500+ life-cycles to 80% of its original battery-capacity, which means that its internal battery makes this portable power station capable of lasting around 6 to 8 times longer than portable power stations powered by traditional Lithium-Ion batteries.

On a side note, in order to guarantee that the device’s built-in LiFePO4 battery system has the best possible shelf-life, it’s recommended that users recharge the unit back to 80% battery-capacity every 3 to 6 months, so keep that in mind.

Lastly, when it comes to recharging its internal battery system, note that this portable power station supports a total of 6 different recharging methods.

The first and second methods are quite similar, as they consist of recharging the unit’s battery-system directly via its 268W AC Input port (by connecting its included AC Charging Cable either to a Wall Outlet or to a Generator) which will take around 1.5 to 2 hours, or approximately just 1.3 hours with its 350W Turbo Charging Mode enabled.

The third charging method consists of recharging the device’s battery via its 12-28V~8.5A Solar Charging DC Input port, which will take around 3 hours if connecting it to a 120W Solar Panel, or around just 2 hours if connecting it to a 200W Solar Panel.

The fourth charging method consists of connecting the device’s 12/24V Car Charging DC Input port (i.e. the same port as its Solar Charging Input port) to a Car Cigarette Lighter port, which will take between 2 to 3 hours of charging time, depending on how much Input Power your vehicle’s cigarette lighter port can provide.

The fifth charging method consists of utilizing the power station’s Dual Fast Charging function to ultimately provide it with a total of 430W of Input Power by utilizing its 268W AC Input port together with its 12-28V~8.5A Solar Charging DC Input port (meaning AC + Solar), which should only take around 1.2 hours of charging time.

The sixth and final charging method would be utilizing its optional BLUETTTI T200 Adapter (sold separately), which is a Dual AC Charging Adapter that also allows for 430W of Input Power via Dual Fast Charging.

Another great feature offered by this portable power station is that the BLUETTI EB3A also integrates 6 Power-Safety Functions, which include Overload Protection, Low-Voltage Protection, Over-Temperature Protection, Low-Temperature Protection, Short-Circuit Protection, and Over-Current Protection.

6 Power-Safety Functions

Thanks to all of its 6 Power-Safety Functions, this portable power station also features a UPS Mode that allows users to use it as their PC’s (or laptop’s) dedicated UPS System.
