I am sure we know how useful a backup power is. Oh, you don’t? Well, just as the Texans. If you rather be prepared for any future outages (knock on wood!), then you will want a device like the Bluetti EP500 and EP500Pro Home Backup Power.
Not sure whether it was the winter and ice storm that landed on some parts of Texas that triggered the demand, but man, these two modern “generators” broke 2 million dollars in funding in a day.
This is not the company’s most successful campaign yet, though. The brand’s last product AC200 Portable Power Station ended up rolling in a cool 6.7 million dollars last year. Six point seven freaking million! And that was before people are reminded how important backup power is.
The Bluetti EP500 and EP500Pro Home Backup Power packed 5,100 Wh LiFePO4 battery storage, 2,000 W (or 3,000 W in the case of the EP500Pro) pure sine wave inverter that will keep all your essential electrical-powered devices, such as water heater, heater, fridge and whatnot, running when power is down and out. In case anyone’s wondering, the battery is rated for over 6,000 charge cycle.
The Bluetti EP500 and EP500Pro Home Backup Power also boasts split phase bonding for doubling the output power, seamless 24/7 UPS backup protection, ARM + DSP dual core system, OTA remote firmware upgrade, 100W USB-C port, Bluetti ECO Mode that prevent up to 30% lost electricity, peak load shifting for power saving, and a bunch of built-in safety circuitry.
For the ultimate preppers, you will be glad to know that this little guy supports both wall outlet charging and solar charging, and it can be recharged with AC and PV simultaneously.
