Great product. the AC200P is big, weighing in at over 60 lbs, but thats because it has so much battery capacity. Its small enough to take with you camping and big enough to pull duty in an emergency outage to keep your fridges and freezers (and a hot plate and some lights) up and running for days.
While it can charge from a wall outlet, in case of disaster those won't be available. I have three of the Bluetti SP200 solar panels that, when hooked up, can charge the unit from 30% to 100% starting at sunup until about noon. So, if you are using power during the day as well, those three panels are enough to make up for what you use in the evening and then some.
The unit's generour 12a/150v solar input limit means you can even double the number of panels I have to six (set them up in series) and still stay within the voltage limit. 6 panels would be way over the wattage limit of 700, but the MPPT controller takes care of that so if you are in a cloudy area, you can overpanel like crazy on the PV circuit to make up for it. Alternatively, there is a separate, inexpensive accessory - the D050S Charging Enhancer - that lets you plug up to 500w more solar into the AC charge outlet... so if you are getting good sun you could pour in a full 1200w, which would give you some pretty serious power.
The AC200P uses industry-standard XT90 plugs to connect to your solar panels (an XT90 to MC4 connector is included so you can use industry standard connectors on the panel side) and that means you can run an extension from your panel array to wherever your AC200P is sitting. In my photos, I have the panels soaking in about 400w/8a of power out in the back yard, and my AC200P is sitting indoors out of the hot sun. Out in a forest somewhere the panels would be in a clearing and the AC200P in the shade, or on a table within the camp site. I used a single-piece, true-10-gauge oxygen-free bare cord, with XT90/XT90S connectors crimped on to make a 50 ft extension. With 10ga wires, there is no loss over that distance when measured at either end.
The Bluetti AC200P is great for power outages, hurricane preparation, RV backup power and a mobile power station for rural areas with no electricity. Can power anything with moderate power use including full refrigerators, clothes washer, some power tools not exceeding 2000 watts continuously. Touch screen is very informative of the system use with battery power indicator, input and out power being used, cell condition, error history and other info about the system. The only small issue I had was the touch screen was a little sensitive when adjusting the time and date. The package includes cables for connecting solar panels, a car charger and a power supply to charge with ac outlet. A bit heavy at approximately 61 pounds but can be lifted with built in handles or can be moved with hand cart for long carrying distance. Overall, a powerful backup power station in the size of a 16in x 15in ice cooler.
I bought the AC200p Bluetti right after Texas had the winter power outage February 2021. Our house didn't have power from Monday at 8am to Thursday at 5pm. I wanted to add a way to have power even if the grid was down. I own two gas generators and even bought a couple of Mr. Heaters to keep the house warm using propane. Like they say it happens once it is a warning happens twice it's on you. I wanted a Solar Generator able to do a fast charge just in case I needed to charge them off the gas-propane generator The AC200p Bluetti has that option to buy a second power supply which I did. One hooks up to the solar panel connection and another standard power connection. I hooked up the solar panels and the additional power supply in parallel. I also installed a smart Alexa power switch just in case I need to charge them in a real emergency remotely or verbal command. I found used solar panels on Facebook marketplace. four 400 watt panels total 1600 watts "2 panels in series plus 2 panels in series equals both sets of series in parallel" 46v +46v=92v @ 10amp at each series grand parallel total 92volts @ 20 amps. Yes, I over paneled the setup. The AC200p Bluetti does have a 12amp limit but the built in charge controller limits the amps to under 12amps. In cloudy or rainy days over paneling does still give you a great charge rate. This setup is 100% off grid and with the ability to say Alexa turn on Solar Generator to insure it is charged 100% during any storm or bad event it does give you that peace of mind. There is a negative that I have to say I use about 80 watts 24/7 which last about 20 hours before it discharges the battery below 15% but have never had it run completely out and only noticed it after it had been cloudy and rainy for like 4 days straight. So I tested how long before I had to charge it just under 20 hours. I power my Internet Fiber box, Router, Coax wifi box, 2 wyze cameras, Ring security system, house phone, FireTV local tv station recorder, and the magic jack phone. You know the stuff that should never be without power. The setup I have works better than I expected and the only thing is if it is rainy and very cloudy just check on it but if you noticed I put a wyze camera on it. So I could be hundreds of miles away from home and use the Alexa command to charge it if need be even during a power outage. So next time Texas has a winter storm with the Bluetti AC200P and a few Mr. Buddy Heater, we will be just fine but in a true emergency the propane-gas generators will be used until the electricity comes back on. Lastly, the setup is a setup and forget about it setup unless it been rainy or very cloudy for over a day....then I look to see if is okay.
Lastly before someone asks as you saw in one of the pictures usually around 12pm to 1pm the Bluetti AC200p is Charged 100% so I set the timer on the portal AC unit and let it run for like 5 to 6 hours during hot sunny days. The Charge rate is usually at 720 watts from solar but the AC output is about 1,000 watts so it discharges slowly and usually about 5pm to 6pm I let the Bluetti AC200p charge fully again for the night. Yes since it is 100% off grid....need to use as much electricity as I can produce....why waste it!
I just received the AC200P and first of all, it was WELL packaged! When I opened it had a 54% charge so I let it fully charge overnight. After it fully charged, everything I put on it worked flawlessly! I purchased this as a backup power unit should the power go out during a storm and after my initial tests, I can rest easy knowing I have backup power for CPAPS, fans, refrigerator, freezer and other major appliances. I read a lot of technical specs but here are some real-world tests I ran.
The first thing I tried was my Keurig DUO and it drew roughly 1400w making a cup of coffee. I started to go with the EB150 but I’m glad I went ahead with the AC200P. The inverter on the EB150 wouldn’t have had enough power to run it. Next onto the full-size fridge. I’m actually surprised at the wattage that pulled. 155W when the compressor was running. So, this would have easily run it for several hours which would come in handy during a power outage. Next, I tried the 4-slice toaster and again, no problem. It ran at 1700W.
All in all, if you are looking for a power backup solution to help you during a storm, this is it. I’ve looked at a LOT of units and the AC200 is by far the best all-in-one unit out there.
The only con I’ve found so far is the weight but that comes with territory. Weighing in at 60lbs, if you plan to move this around, get a cart. That will save your back.
Final thoughts, this is an amazing unit. It is so versatile and there are a lot of uses for the AC200P. I highly recommend it!
I was so excited to get this for use in power outage or outdoor power source. Unfortunately it will not charge within about 5 seconds of being plugged in it gives me fault code 41. It is a BMS temperature error. The unit is sitting in my 70 degree house there is no extreme temperature. Hopefully customer service will have a solution, will update review when this happens. Extremely disappointed after paying so much for the unit.
Update: they did give me a full refund but I don’t know if I will ever buy again from them. This was a new unit out of the box that did not work. They did say sorry for the inconvenience, but words only do so much for me.
