    Bluetti AC200MAX Review (Pt 1) – Intro & Features

    Last summer, I did an extensive review of a portable lithium power station from a company called Bluetti. The model AC200P boasted impressive power with a 2048-watt-hour LiFePO4 battery pack and a 2000W pure sine wave inverter.

    The AC200P performed well in my off-grid camping tests. It was able to power any appliance in our RV and charged up pretty fast via solar or our gas generator.

    Well, it’s nearly a year later now, and Bluetti had contacted me again and asked if I’d like to review their newer upgraded model, the AC200MAX. It has improved charging and output power performance specs, plus new features that addressed a few of my AC200P dislikes. So I decided to take them up on the offer.

    PT2 In-Depth Testing and Demos, Charging & Discharging

    In Part 2 of my Bluetti AC200MAX review, I do in-depth testing of its charging and discharging capabilities. Using the AC charger + 1000 watts of solar panels, I was able to input approximately 1200 watts of charging power even without a perfectly clear sky. Another test was to see if it would power my Coleman Mach 3 13.5K BTU RV air conditioner and for how long. Also, I tested out the 30 amp 12VDC power port.

    Stay tuned for the Part 3 Video – Likes and Dislikes after a few weeks of real-world camping and final thought on this offering from Bluetti.
