    In this video, I introduce you to the Bluetti AC200P portable power station. I go through its many features and capabilities. With a 2000 watt pure sine inverter and 2000 watt-hour battery, the AC200P can power pretty well anything an RVer would need for off-grid camping.

    I'm planning to do two more videos soon. The next video will have charge and discharge tests and demos of the Bluetti powering various things around our RV. Then I'll take the AC200P out camping for 3 days and see how it performs in real-world usage.

    In part 2, I test the Bluetti AC200P portable power station's different charging methods. First with the 411W AC power brick, then use 3 200W Bluetti folding solar panels and via 8.2 amp 12V car charger.

    Then I test various things around my RV it can power like our air conditioner, Instant Pot, microwave, toaster, air compressor, etc. I also do a total output power capacity test using the AC inverter output @ 600 watts.

    Overall I was impressed with the AC200P's 2000W inverter. It's robust and puts out stable, consistent power with terrific 4800 surge capabilities. I even tried it at greater than 2000 watts. In my test, it was able to put out 2150 watts for about 2 minutes before the overload function kicked in.



    For the part 3 video, I'm taking the Bluetti along with us on a 3-day off-grid RV trip. I let you know how it performs and give you my pro and cons as I see them.

    Now, in part 3 of my Bluetti AC200P 2000W portable power station review, I take the system out on a three-day camping trip off-grid. We head into the British Columbia backwoods and camp in a beautiful forest campsite.

    I show you how it performs in a rigorous real-world situation with limited solar power due to the cloudy rainy west coast weather. Then I give my overall pros/cons plus final thoughts.



    Cons:

    - "All in One Solution," but it fails; the whole system is down.
    - Heavy for some at 60 pound
    - Much more costly than a 2000W gas generator
    - The display is difficult to read in bright light
    - If the display quits or is damaged, the unit can't be used
    - 2000 watt-hour can be misleading (1680 usable in my test)
    - No cords included for the 12V 25A output port

    Pros:

    - Robust 2000W pure sine inverter w/4800W surge capacity
    - Quality construction, fit & finish, and excellent accessory cables
    - LiFePO4 battery pack rated at 3500+ charging cycles
    - 700-watt solar input max and input voltages of 35V to 150V
    - Can charge with both inputs simultaneously for up to 1200 watts
    - 12VDC 25 Amp output port. Good for RV applications
    - Bluetti has good brand recognition and reviews
    - Can charge and discharge both AC & DC at the same time
    - Detail information provided via the touch screen display
    - Variable fan speeds Not too loud on low below 1500W output
    - Small form factor considering the power. 16.5 x 11 x 15.2 inches
    - Stylish looks but doesn't stand out too much
    - Solid handles for lifting or locking up
    - Lots of different output ports for powering multiple devices
    - 2-year warranty
