MacRumors Giveaway: Win a 2400Wh Bluetti EB240 Power Station From MAXOAK

For this week's giveaway we've teamed up with MAXOAK to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Bluetti EB240 Power Station, a high-capacity portable battery that's ideal for emergency power, power outages, off-grid living, camping, and other similar purposes.

The EB240 Power Station features a 2400Wh battery that supports a maximum of 1000W continuous power draw, though it can support up to 1200W for two minutes. The Power Station is equipped with a 3C high rate LG battery cell designed for automobiles, which MAXOAK says has a 2500+ charge life cycle.

Priced at $1600 after a $200 discount on the Amazon site and another $95 off with promo code "bluetti15," the EB240 features a compact design with easily accessible ports and a handle to make it simple to transport wherever it's needed. The EB240 Power Station measures in at 20 inches by 14.4 inches by 6.5 inches and it weighs 48.5 pounds.

There are two AC 110V outlets for household devices like televisions, refrigerators, CPAP machines, and similar high-powered appliances, along with a 12V9A Cigar Lighter to support car-powered devices like miniature fridges and car vacuums. There's a 45W USB-C port for charging laptops, iPhones, and iPads, along with four 5V3A USB-A ports for other smaller devices and accessories like cameras, lights, smartphones, and more.

Recharging the EB240 can be done in 12 hours through a wall outlet, but for off-the-grid power, it can be recharged using a solar panel with efficient MPPT technology built in (solar panel not included). A pure sine wave inverter and a battery management system protect devices from overvoltage, overcurrent, short circuiting, and temperature issues.

With 2400Wh, the EB240 can charge a smartphone up to 255 times before it runs out of juice. It can charge a tablet 88 times, a camera 400 times, and a 60W laptop 34 times. It can power an 800W refrigerator for 2.6 hours, a 100W LCD TV for 24 hours, a 10W light for 204 hours, and a 60W CPAP machine for 34 hours. Power level is available through an included LCD screen.

This is one of those products that at first you're like, "Oh cool! I should get one!" Then you look at the price and it suddenly stops being so cool.

Yeah, I always think these big power stations are neat. They do come much cheaper, just without quite as much battery capacity.


The power in my town frequently goes out and if it does on a hot day, that's a really big problem (in the desert).
This 2.4 kWh PowerBank would be perfect to keep fans or an EVAP cooler running for several hours until the power returns.
I feel like a sucker but I entered the contest (first time in my life). Of course I won't win and my email will get sold to spammers - but what the heck

We definitely don't sell your email addresses. We only collect them so I can email winners when contests end. I try to be very respectful of the privacy of our readers with our giveaways!

Goodness sake people, it isn’t intended to be backup for your house if you live in California or South Australia. This is portable power for weekends away or for powering a low power drill etc. at off grid locations. It would be great kept in the back of a farm utility. I reckon it would be so worth it for a tradie who also likes going camping
it isn’t suitable for microwaves or even running a domestic fridge. It would not start up a decent sized fridge, which can need over 2000w to start up before settling down. And the power outputs of their examples are a tad low which doesn’t help.
if you want power backup for a house you will need a bank of these (there are much cheaper ways of doing that, eg a bank of gel batteries, or more cheaply a sine inverter generator running on petrol, or diesel if longer term).
