BLUETTI unveils three new products at CES including the world’s first sodium-ion solar generator
Portable power expert BLUETTI is kicking off 2022 with more energy than ever, unveiling new products at this years Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Soon, consumers will be able to get deals on some of the best tech yet from BLUETTI, including the long anticipated APEX inverter, a small but mighty EB3A Power Station, and a world’s first in the NA300 sodium-ion solar generator.
NA300 sodium-ion generator: The next generation of energy storage
Kicking off another year at CES in Las Vegas, BLUETTI announced the NA300 as not only one of its new products, but a world’s first as a sodium-ion solar generator.
This first-generation sodium-ion batteries are competitive to the LiFePO4 battery cells currently present in other BLUETTI products in terms of long cycle life apart from lower energy density. However, sodium-ion wins in terms of cost, low-temperature performance, and charging speeds.
Together with its B480 compatible battery packs, the NA300 features all the same style and settings as its EP500 predecessor, but with an improvement on its 2,400W solar input to 3,000W.
While its 3,000Wh capacity is less than the 5,100Wh in the EP500, it does support up to two B480 battery modules (4,800Wh each) for a massive 12,600Wh total capacity. This allows the NA300 sustain a constant supply of electricity needs for an entire family for several days allowing for recharging by the solar panels.
Similar to the EP500, the NA300 comes equipped with four 20A plugs and one 30A L14-30 output powered by its 3,000W pure sine wave inverter. Additionally, the NA300 offers the 240V, 6000W connection via BLUETTI Fusion Box to another NA300, IoT App Remote Control for both iOS and Android.
BLUETTI is boasting its new NA300 as the fastest charging solar generator out there, as it can recharge from 0% to 80% in just 30 minutes using 6,000W swift AC PV dual charging. (3,000W Max. for both AC and PV).
The NA300 and B480 sodium-ion batteries are also unique in that they have a capacity retention rate over 85% and a system integration efficiency of over 80% in low-temperature environments as low as.4°F (-20°C). This makes these new BLUETTI products perfect for consumers requiring backup winter power, or those out exploring in low temperature regions.
Learn more about the new NA300 on BLUETTI’s website.
BLUETTI AC500: The APEX has arrived
After two years of development and much hype from fans of BLUETTI, the AC500 has finally made its debut as a new product at CES. Nicknamed “The APEX” the AC500 represents the pinnacle in power with its 5,000W pure sine wave inverter – the post powerful delivered by BLUETTI to date.
Similar to its AC300 predecessor, the AC500 is a 100% modular solar battery system, compatible with its own B301 battery modules, which offer 3072Wh per LFP pack. Also like the AC300, the AC500 is backwards compatible with BLUETTI’s B300 battery module.
This powerful inverter on the AC500 supports major specs on both input and output of the device. For example, while charging AC and PV (solar) simultaneously, the total input can achieve up to 8000W, meaning one single hour of charging can power an air conditioner for 5-8 hours, or a dryer appliance for 1-2 hours.
5,000 watts come from AC charging, providing steady and reliable backup power to AC500 owners in a multitude of emergencies. The 3,000W of 3000W PV (solar) charging provide a welcomed element of sustainability to the AC500 that is more friendly to the environment. Furthermore, one hour of PV charging can power an electric saw for 2-4 hours or a professional computer for 4-6 hours.
In addition to the 5,000W power output, two AC500’s can be paired to provide a massive 240V, 10,000W output power system (Split-phase bonding, home circuit integration by BLUETTI Smart Home Panel).
The BLUETTI AC500 can be found in the CES 2022 section of BLUETTI’s website.
EB3A Power Station: A small but mighty new BLUETTI product
The third and final new product announced by BLUETTI is by far the tiniest, but that doesn’t mean it lacks power.
Previous models of BLUETTI’s compact power station line followed a consistent naming pattern like the previous EB55. The EB3A however, breaks the mold as the “A” in its nomenclature represents its “advanced” technology.
For example, the EB3A’s 600W pure sine wave inverter and 288Wh of LiFePO4 battery pack provide big power in a small footprint. With the additional ability to support up to 200 watts of solar input, the EB3A will arrive as a sleeper contender to other competitors in the entry-level power station segment.
Continuing its trend of small and simple design, the new EB3A is the first BLUETTI product in the sub-3,000Wh range that no longer requires the bulky power brick on its cord to recharge. In fact, a single cable can recharge the EB3A at a rate of 600W, replenishing from 0-80% in just 20 minutes.
If you already have other portable power stations, the EB3A could serve you just as well as lightweight compact power on the go while your other stations recharge at your home base. Check it out for yourself.

Bluetti’s latest battery tech debuts in a solar generator that can recharge 80% in just 30 minutes, more
At CES 2022, Bluetti is bringing new battery tech that delivers faster charging, alongside its “APEX” product, the AC500 5,000W inverter, and more. Here’s what you need to know.
Bluetti’s NA300 Solar Generator is a world-first
One of the most interesting announcements Bluetti is making at CES 2022 is the world’s first sodium-ion solar generation. The NA300 system and its B480 battery module use sodium-ion technology to speed up charging dramatically and improve performance in low-temperature environments. Bluetti says that its sodium-ion battery can charge from 0% to 80% in under 30 minutes at room temperature and has a retention rate of over 85% in low temperatures around.20°C (-4°F).
This new battery tech is making its debut in the NA300 system, a comparable system to the EP500 Pro. The new system has a built-in capacity of 3,000Wh with support for up to two B480 battery modules at 4,800Wh each. Like many of Bluetti’s other systems, the NA300 has four 20A plugs and one more 30A output port. It can also handle a whopping 3,000W of solar charging input, making it one of the fastest solar generators out there. With AC input, the battery can be recharged up to 80% in just 30 minutes.
‘APEX’ finally arrives in Bluetti’s 5,000W AC500
The star of the show for Bluetti at CES is the long-await “APEX” system, the Bluetti AC500. This product, which has been in development for around two years, can deliver a massive 5,000W of power using its pure sine wave inverter, the most powerful inverter the company has ever used on a product and one of the most powerful on the market today.
The design of the AC500 is similar to the AC300 in that the system itself doesn’t have built-in batteries, but is completely module with batteries such as the new B301. That latest module has 3,072Wh of battery power per pack, and AC500 can use up to six of those units at once for a whopping 18,432Wh of energy storage – enough to power an entire family through days of a power outage.
As for recharging that massive system, Bluetti says you can charge over AC, solar, or both for up to 8,000W of power input. AC charging on its own can hit 5,000W of input, while solar charging can hit up to 3,000W.
EB3A promises to be a killer travel companion
Bluetti is certainly best known for its bigger batteries and inverters, but the company is coming to CES 2022 with an advanced new portable battery bank. The Bluetti EB3A has a 600W pure sine wave inverter and a battery capacity of 288Wh. The battery can support up to 200W of solar input, too.
Best of all? The EB3A utilizes just a single cable for charging, ditching the need for a bulky power brick for recharging. Plus, it can recharge at speeds of up to 600W, with a 0%-80% recharge in a mere 20 minutes.

From portable solar generators to home power backup: 3 things BLUETTI wants you to know
This advertising content was produced by our advertiser, and does not reflect the opinions or point of view of Vox Media or Vox Creative.
The energy solutions company BLUETTI is ready for 2022. With announcements spanning sodium battery power stations, solar panels, and all-in-one home power solutions, energy-interested consumers have plenty to watch for. Fans of the brand might be eagerly awaiting news about the BLUETTI APEX — a new product rumored to be introduced this year— but until then, the brand’s product range is expanding with smarter power solutions for around the home.
As part of the annual CES (Consumer Technology Association) trade show, BLUETTI shared three major details about their new 2022 lineup.
The next generation of energy storage: the sodium-ion battery
BLUETTI is introducing a sodium-ion solar generator-NA300 and its compatible battery pack, B480.
The NA300 and B480 seamlessly inherit all the style and appearance settings of the predecessor (the EP500 Pro solar generator) However, the NA300 further outstrips the EP500 Pro’s incredible 2,400 watts (W) solar input to 3,000W and thanks to 6,000 AC PV dual charging, it can recharge from 0 to 80 percent in 30 minutes.
The NA300 provides a capacity of 3,000 watt hours (Wh), less than the 5,100Wh of the EP500 Pro. Favorably, it supports up to two B480 battery modules (4,800Wh each) for a whopping total capacity of 12,600Wh, and the unit can sustain the constant supply for a family’s electricity needs for several days (or even a week in grid failures or natural disasters) with a solar input supplement. Additionally, the NA300 offers a 240 vault (V)/6000W connection with another NA300 via a fusion box, an iOS or Android compatible IoT App Remote Control, and more of the EP500 Pro’s merits.
This first-generation sodium-ion battery rivals the LiFePO4 battery cells (which are widely used in other BLUETTI products) in security and long cycle. Although its energy density is lower than the LiFePO4’s, the former excels in cost, quick charging, and low-temperature performance because of its chemical characteristics. Given its ability to perform exceptionally well in low-temperature environments, the sodium-ion battery is a perfect winter power solution.
In the case of power failure, the necessary electricity consumption of an American family is about 5KWH.
The long-awaited APEX finally arrives: BLUETTI AC500
After two years of development and product iteration, the BLUETTI AC series is introducing the mightly APEX: the BLUETTI AC500. This new power solution features a groundbreaking 5,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, which is the most powerful inverter that BLUETTI has ever shipped, and might be the most powerful inverter in today’s market. The APEX inherits the design language of its predecessor (the AC300) and is a 100-percent modular solar battery system. It works with its own battery module B301 (3072Wh Lithium Iron Phosphate, LFP, per pack) and is backwards compatible with the B300 battery module that BLUETTI included with the AC300 in 2020.
The APEX can work with up to 6×B301 battery modules per unit, adding up to a groundbreaking 18,432Wh. This kind of energy power is strong enough to sustain a family’s basic needs for days during emergencies or power outages.
Turbo Charge: With AC and PV (solar) simultaneous charging, the total input can achieve up to 8000W. The breakdown? One hour of charging could power up an air conditioner for up to eight hours, or a clothes dryer for up to two hours.
5000W AC Charging: This model is able to quickly charge to full, steady backup power in case of emergencies.
3000W PV(solar) Charging: Sustainable energy, which is clean and friendly to the environment. One hour of PV charging can power up an electric saw for up to four hours or a professional computer for up to six hours.
The 5000W pure sine wave inverter provides a clean and safe power output. Two AC500’s can be paired for a 240V, 10000W output power system.
The Tiny Yet Mighty Model: BLUETTI EB3A
Lastly, BLUETTI introduced one of its smallest power units: the EB3A. Not long ago, the company released the last compact model, EB55, and now BLUETTI has brought another even smaller unit to the brand’s CES booth: the EB3A.
Unlike the previous compact model (the EB55), EB3A’s name stands out among other BLUETTI products. According to the company’s staff, the “A” stands for “advanced”, given its 600W pure sine wave inverter and the 268Wh LiFePO4 battery pack under its hood. The new model also supports up to 200 watts of solar input, making it a big catch in the entry-level power station market. The EB3A is also BLUETTI’s first model in the sub-3000Wh range that doesn’t need a bulky power brick to charge. One cable can charge the EB3A at a Rapid rate of 600W, bringing it from zero to 80-percent-charged in 20 minutes.
With its affordable price and impressive capabilities, the EB3A might just start a revolution among ultra-portable power stations.
A Lithium Power Station/Solar Generator With A 30 Amp Plug For RVers
We have seen a lot of portable lithium power stations or solar generators with AC outlets, but have you ever seen one that has a 30 amp outlet, compatible with RV campers out of the box? The inergy Apex is the first one I have seen.
The 30 amp plug will let you use the 30 amp cable you usually plug into the campground or your gas generator. There are also 6 regular AC outlets available on the inergy Apex, next to two USB A ports and two USB C PD ports.
The Main Features of the inergy Apex
With 1100 watt hours of lithium battery capacity, it’s a lot like the Yeti 1000. It has a 1500W, 3000W pure sine wave inverter that can only be utilized fully with the 30 amp RV plug found on the Apex. Six AC outlets are rated at 1000W max.
1100 watt hours and 15A AC outlets capable of outputting 1000W make it a great option for powering an off-grid home or camper.
Two USB C PD charging ports are rated at 5V 3A, which is pretty low for being a USB C PD port. There are also two regular USB A ports, rated at the same 5V 3A.
The RV plug is what sticks out on the Apex compared to other similar solar generators. Being able to plug your RV camper directly into it is a nice feature to have. This port maxes out at 12.5 amps (1500W) so it won’t run most air conditioners found on RVs, but it will handle everything else, including some microwaves.
A MPPT charge controller is built-in, making charging via solar panels an efficient way to charge the unit. It supports up to 500 watts of solar panels, making it possible to charge it from 0 to 100% in less than four hours.
With support for solar panels rated up to 26V VOC, and 30 amps, it can handle bigger panels than the Yeti which supports up to 22V. Panels like the Renogy 160W is rated at 22.9V and compatible with the Apex.
Is The inergy Apex The Best Solar Generator For RV Camping?
It is the first 30 amp lithium power station I have seen on the market, but that doesn’t automatically make it the best power station for RV camping in general. So what is good and not so good about it?
If you plan on using the 30 amp plug, the inverter can handle 1500W continuously with a 3000W surge. If you, however, are planning on using the 100V AC outlets (of which there are six in total) the inverter can only to 1000W continuously, but 1500W in total combined when using all the outlets.
This has been criticized, and maybe fairly so depending on who you ask, it can be seen as slightly misleading, but if you’ve read the manual this is something you would know from the start. Since it’s in the manual, I can’t be too harsh about it.
I would bet most people won’t even come close to using 1000W at any time, especially not if you only plug it into an RV to charge the house batteries, your electronics, and watch TV.
So what are the pros with the inergy Apex solar generator?
It’s lightweight, comes with an MPPT charge controller built-in, has a 30 amp RV plug, six(!) AC outlets, USB ports including USB C PD (capable of charging USB C electronics), and it’s also very portable with the built-in handle on top.
The fact that it can handle large solar panels is a big pro that most other solar generators struggle with.
The inergy Apex is sold in different kits which includes solar panels and lights, making it easy for beginners to get into solar power and solar generators.
Inergy sells kits with either solid panels or flexible panels and you can choose how many panels you want. The more panels, the faster the Apex will recharge.
Can I Run My RV Air Conditioner With The inergy Apex?
No. The inergy Apex has a 1500W/3000W surge pure sine wave inverter, which is not powerful enough to run an RV air conditioner. A 13,500BTU AC requires about 2800-3000W to start, and 1500-2000W continuously to run. Smaller portable ACs might work, but will drain the batteries quickly.
Since a regular 15A 120V AC outlet can handle up to 1800 watts (although only 1000W on the Apex) the 30 amp plug on the Apex is only good for using electronics rated above 1000W but under 1500W.
Can I Plug a 50 Amp Fifth Wheel or Travel Trailer Into the Inergy Apex?
Yes, you can use a 50 amp cable, all you’d need is a 30A to 50A adapter.
What Is A Power Station/Solar Generator?
A power station, also called a solar generator, is basically a box with 12V batteries, an inverter, and a solar charge controller. The inverter turns the 12V battery power into 120V, which can then be used with regular outlets put on the box. USB ports and 12V outputs are also common.
These portable boxes can usually be charged in several ways. Through regular AC wall outlets, 12 cigarette plugs in cars, and by solar panels.
They’ve become increasingly popular with people that spend a lot of time outdoors camping since they’re a gas-free solution that can take care of your power needs and be recharged with portable solar panels.
I own a refurbished Yeti 1000 power station which I plug straight into my travel trailer, paired with 400 watts of solar, and it covers about 90% of my energy needs. I only have to start up my gas generator when it’s cloudy for several days.
Solar generators need external solar panels in order to charge their batteries, so the name solar generator is somewhat misleading since it cannot generate energy on its own like a gas engine generator.
What Are The Best Alternatives To The inergy Apex?
Solar generators are becoming increasingly popular and there are lots of brands that are trying to gain market shares in the product category. There are a couple of high-quality solar generators that stick out that compare to the inergy Apex.
Goal Zero Yeti 1400
The Goal Zero Yeti 1400 has more battery capacity, a more capable pure sine wave inverter, faster USB-C ports, Wi-Fi features that allow you to control and monitor the solar generator with an app on your phone, and can be charged with solar panels. It doesn’t include an MPPT charge controller which is sold separately. There is also a Yeti 1000. I have compared the two in a post that you can find here.
The Bluetti is one of the best solar generators on the market right now. If you don’t need to use more than 1000W at a time from the outlet, this is one to consider. It doesn’t have a 30 amp plug, but you could still plug it into an RV camper with a 15A to 30A adapter.
If you’ve looked into solar panels, you probably recognize the name Renogy. They sell a lot of solar panels, and have also created the Renogy Lycan which is very similar to the Yeti 1000. If you’re thinking about buying from Renogy, you can use my link to save 10% on your purchase. Disclaimer: I earn a percentage on the sale, but it doesn’t cost extra for you. (Excludes GEL/AGM batteries and sale items.)
Jackery Explorer 500
A smaller option capable of a lot of the same things the bigger solar generators is the Jackery Explorer 500. It has a 518Wh battery, a 500W inverter, and enough ports for most camping needs. I wouldn’t plug it straight into my travel trailer, but its portability makes it very outdoor-friendly.

Solar Powered Generator Review: Advice From An Electrician | Myrtle Beach, SC
Are you considering getting a generator for your home or business? Having your own generator will bring you many benefits, particularly if there’s a power outage. Some rural areas suffer from regular power outages, and the only way you can ensure that you’ll always have power is to invest in a generator.
If you own a business, you’ll know that having a power outage can cause many issues. It will stop your company from functioning as it should and will also reduce your profits. To avoid such problems, you can ask an electrician to install a generator.
If you’re interested in becoming more environmentally friendly, you may also like to invest in a solar-powered generator. There are many solar-powered generators available on the market, including the Titan solar generator, Yeti 3000, and the Inergy Apex. These products all have similar features but are also unique. It’s important to carefully compare these products before making a decision about which generator is right for you.
If you live in Myrtle Beach, SC. and are unsure about which generator is best for your home, you can contact a Mister Sparky, electrician. for more advice. Their team of highly skilled electricians can also carry out other electrical work such as maintenance and repair as well as rewiring.
Titan Solar Generator Vs. YETI 3000
When compared to the Yeti 3000, the Titan Solar powered Generator is more powerful as it can produce 3000-watts and can surge up to 6000 Watts. The Yeto 3000 can produce 1500 Watts of power and can surge up to 3000 Watts. The Yeti generator has the added benefit of being able to be controlled by a Wi-Fi mobile app. It also has a lithium rechargeable battery.
The Titan solar-powered generator can expand its battery capacity by adding battery packs, which will increase its power capacity. The Yeti 3000 solar powered generator has good quality batteries that also have a high capacity. If you want to extend it’s battery capabilities, you’ll need to purchase a Yeti Tank Expansion Battery pack, which are external lead-acid batteries.
The Titan solar-powered generator has rechargeable batteries that are durable and long-lasting; they have a lifespan of between ten and twenty years.
There are three different ways to charge the batteries of both the Titan and the Yeti 3000 solar generators. They can both be recharged from the sun with the solar panels, or using the AC outlet or from a car with the external charger cable. The Titan solar-powered generator is more effective than the yeti when being charged by the sun; it can handle up to 2000 Watts from solar panels at a time. This is four times higher than the Yeti 3000.
The Yeti 3000 solar powered generator has the added advantage of being portable. It comes with a cart that allows it to be moved easily on hard surfaces. If you’re trying to move the cart on any uneven or softer surface, it’s a lot harder, and it may get stuck. This seems to defeat the purpose of creating a portable generator.
The Titan solar generator, on the other hand, definitely isn’t portable. It’s quite large as it’s been designed with power in mind and can provide enough energy for a whole household. This makes it very heavy, and you won’t be able to move it easily.
Both the Yeti 3000 and the Titan are quite expensive. They are similar prices, but the Titian is generally sold for slightly less.
Titan Solar Generator Vs. Inergy Apex
Unlike the Titan generator, which has been designed to be situated in one place, the Inergy Apex is very portable and lightweight. This allows you to use the generator for a selection of different situations, including camping or for if there’s a power outage in your home.
The Inergy Apex has a smaller lithium-ion battery then the Titan, and as a result, it’s able to create less power. You won’t be able to power too many appliances at the same time with the Inergy Apex as you can with the Titan generator that can be used as the main source of electricity for your home. In fact, the Inergy Apex can produce about half the power output of the Titan. Like the Yeti 3000, the Inergy Apex solar generator can produce 1500-Watts and can surge to 3000 watts.
Like the Titan solar generator, the Inergy Apex allows three different charging methods, either from the sun, a car battery, or the AC grid power. When charged by solar energy, the inergy Apex’s panels are likely to get hot as it doesn’t have temperature compensation like the Titan does.
The Titan generator can produce a lot more power than the inergy Apex, and the price reflects this. The inergy Apex is an excellent product if you’re looking for a smaller, lightweight, and portable solar powered generator. The Titan can power a whole house, and while it costs more, if you use it regularly, you can save a lot of money on your utility bills.
The Titian solar generator is very efficient, durable, and easy to use. It’s been well designed and is manufactured using good quality Components. It’s also able to save power while running, which helps increase the longevity of usage.
Many similar solar powered generators only allow you to create enough energy to power small electrical items or appliances and aren’t able to power energy-consuming products such as fridges or microwaves. On the other hand, the Titan solar powered generator is very powerful and has six power outages, which allows you to power a wide selection of appliances simultaneously. This is due to the internal system construction that will enable it to produce extra power.
