The BLUETTI AC300 power station has been released and the BLUETTI AC200 MAX is back in stock, plus two new battery packs, the B300 and the B230.
Back in August 2021, we announced that BLUETTI, the portable solar storage pioneer, would soon release a new 3000W pure sine wave inverter — the AC300 and its accompanying lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery module, the B300. I’m happy to announce that the wait is over — the new BLUETTI AC300 and B300 are available now on BLUETTI’s website for their debut sale, along with the AC200 Max, which is back in stock as of 9/15/2021.
BLUETTI AC300 Details and Specs
The BLUETTI AC300 is a rectangular power box with two sturdy handles on the top of each side for lifting the unit. The AC300 doesn’t come with a built-in battery pack. Instead, its modular design allows you to connect the separate heavy-duty B300 battery. With this modular design, the AC300’s weight is reduced significantly, making it a much easier system to carry when the unit and the battery module are separated. This design also allows you to easily replace its batteries as necessary.
The BLUETTI AC300 comes with a 3,000W pure sine wave inverter and a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller that supports up to 2,400W of solar charging. A single AC300 supports up to four battery packs for a total possible capacity of 12.3kWh.
Are Solar Generators Better than Gas/Propane Generators?
There are several reasons you should consider buying a solar-powered generator instead of a gas or propane-powered generator.
- Solar generators are much quieter (35dB) than gas generators (greater than or equal to 70dB).
- You can use solar generators in your house (once charged) as a free, clean, endless renewable power source. Gas generators emit deadly, toxic carbon monoxide and must be used outside, making it difficult to run power cords to inside devices. And they have a higher carbon footprint than solar generators because they use fossil fuels for power.
- Solar generators are extremely low maintenance because they have very few moving parts. Gas generators are like cars – they require more maintenance due to many moving parts.
- Solar generators provide a seamless, uninterrupted power supply (UPS) when power outages occur.
- Gas generators also have additional monthly costs for dirty fossil fuel instead of solar generators, which use the free natural fuel from the sun.
You can continue using the free energy from the sun for the life of your solar panels, which is usually about 25 to 30 years.
Save Yourself Money and Help Save the Environment
Besides saving money by using a solar generator, you’re also doing your part to help save the environment and improve your health at the same time. The noise from gas generators is annoying, but the air pollution from gas generators contributes to climate change and respiratory diseases.
Solar Generators are Lighter with the Same Amount of Power
Gas-powered generators also weigh a lot more than solar-powered generators, sometimes up to 250 pounds. In comparison, BLUETTI’s heavy-duty, solar-powered AC300 weighs only 44 pounds, and the external battery B300 weighs 74 pounds. Generally, the more powerful the solar generator, the heavier it is. But, it’s still lighter than gas-powered generators. This makes solar generators easier to move around to wherever you need them in your home when you lose power. You can also use solar generators in your RV, van, or even when camping in the great outdoors. You’ll get the same amount of power with a solar generator as you would with a gas generator.
Modular Solar Power with Battery Packs
The AC300 doesn’t come with a built-in battery. Instead, it has a modular design perfect for the heavy-duty B300 battery module that can be easily installed and removed, making it easy to move around and replace the battery. Changing a battery is easier and safer than messing around with a gas generator.
With BLUETTI’s Fusion Box Pro, you can add two AC300 units for double the voltage, power, and capacity. The dual setup can act as an emergency power center and run your home essentials for over a week. With enough solar panels, it could keep you off the grid indefinitely.
While connected to two B300 battery modules, the AC300 can be charged with solar and AC simultaneously, adding up to 5400 watts of power input.
The AC300 uses top-of-the-range lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells with 3500+ life cycles leading up to 80% of the original capacity.
Control the AC300 Easily with an App on Your Phone or Tablet
All of this technology can be controlled by a complex yet easy-to-use smartphone app via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The BLUETTI AC200 MAX is Back in Stock!
The BLUETTI AC200 MAX quickly sold out when it was first released. However, both the AC200 MAX and the B230 battery modules are now available to be purchased again.
The AC200 MAX has a standard built-in 2,048Wh LFP battery pack and upgrades the popular AC200P (2000WH/2000W).
The BLUETTI AC200 MAX features continuous output power at 2,200W from its pure sine wave inverter. It includes a 100W PD3.0 USB-C port and an upgraded Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller that handles up to 900W solar input. The machine also includes a built-in 30A NEMA TT-30 designed for RVs. The BLUETTI AC200 MAX also supports Bluetooth, which means you can control it wirelessly with the BLUETTI smartphone app for both iOS and Android. The BLUETTI AC200 Max also supports expandable battery packs.
The AC200 MAX can use both the B230 and B300 battery modules, unlike the AC300, which only accepts the B300 battery module. At full capacity with two B300 battery modules, the AC200 MAX boasts up to 8,192Wh!
BLUETTI is offering a discount coupon on the AC200 MAX for a limited time, which brings the price down to a low $1,799, which is a $300 savings. Additional savings can be made by purchasing bundles.
