MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Massive 2000Wh Bluetti Portable Power Station

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with MAXOAK to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh Portable Power Station, a Bluetti AC50S 500Wh Portable Power Station, or a Bluetti AC30 300Wh Backup Battery, all of which are fantastic to have on hand for camping, RV use, off-grid living, power outages, emergencies, and more.

bluetti AC200P 1
Priced at $1,599 after a $100 discount from Amazon, the Bluetti AC200P is just about one of the biggest and most powerful portable power stations you can get.

The AC200P features a 2000Wh battery that supports a maximum of 2000W continuous power draw, which means it can be used with a wide range of appliances. It works with refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers, small air conditioners, grills, CPAP machines, heaters, and more. Many portable power stations are not able to support high-powered appliances, so this is a good choice if you need to run something that draws a lot of power.

At 60 pounds, the Bluetti AC200P is hefty, but the two handles at the side make it easier to carry. There are six AC outlets, a 12V/25A RV port, two built-in wireless charging pads that support up to 15W, a 60W USB-C port, four USB-A ports, one 12V/10A car port, and two 12V/3A ports, which means it has all of the ports you could possibly need for charging up all of your devices and powering appliances. MAXOAK says that up to 17 devices can be powered simultaneously.

Ports are all covered to protect them from the elements or small fingers, and there's an LCD display that shows charge level, current, voltage, temperature, and charging status. A power button lets you turn the AC200P off when not in use to conserve charge. The AC200P can be charged up with an AC adapter, car, or by a solar panel, with charging times varying on method used.

The Bluetti AC200P is designed to work for more than 3,500 charging cycles, and a built-in fan keeps the AC200P cool when it's charging up devices. It is designed to activate only when it's hotter than 113 degrees Fahrenheit, which means it stays quiet when used for things like CPAP machines. MAXOAK says there is a built-in Eco mode that can prevent up to 50 percent of wasted electricity cost so each charge lasts longer.

MAXOAK also makes a range of smaller portable power stations that are included in the ‌giveaway‌. The 500Wh Bluetti AC50S is priced at $400 and supports devices up to 300W, so it's ideal for smaller appliances and electronics. It features two AC ports, four USB-A ports, a 45W USB-C ports, two 12V/3A ports, a 12V/10A car port, and a 10W wireless charging pad.

There's a built-in LCD display that provides information on charging status, and it weighs just 13.6 pounds, so it's much more portable than the pricier AC200P.

For those looking for something even smaller, MAXOAK makes the Bluetti AC30 300Wh (96,000mAh) backup battery, which is priced at $200. This smaller power station is ideal for charging up a whole group of iPhones or iPads, but it can also power small appliances. It includes a 15W wireless charging spot, a USB-C port, two USB-A ports, two AC ports, and a 12V DC port for car powered devices.

I wonder if it would not be better to just buy a Honda EU1000i gasoline generator instead.. Granted, its not as quiet as a battery.. But you're simply going to have more power per LB's easily..

The thing about a generator is the engine has to be running constantly even when only drawing a tiny bit of power.

If you pair one of these power stations with solar panels, you can have quiet, clean energy without having to keep an engine running. And if you don't want to go solar, you can actually pair one of these with a generator. Run the generator for a few hours to charge it up during the day, then at night turn off the generator and still have power overnight without making noise and smells.

These things are great for RVing and camping, and better than generators for many tasks. The only downside is they're still absurdly expensive. I hope the price comes down on them soon.

Lithium is more expensive than petrol. My 8000 watt generator cost less than this and will go for 8 hours. (although generator is not portable) But this is an interesting item.

It may be "quiet" but it's not silent, it still pollutes, and it still requires you to deal with petroleum fuel. So you have to haul around fuel, which is going to be very hard to come by if you run out and you're in the middle of nowhere, but you'll always have the sun available for recharging anywhere.

Sure, for about 100 feet.
Honda Gen is very very reliable. Would trust it much more than this product if I’m going to be dependent on it.

Honda Gen uses a very small amount of fuel. In your scenario, hauling a small gas can isn’t a big deal.

battery pack outsources it’s pollution to whatever it is charging from. Solar would take forever with this. Solar is for marginal recharging, not a primary method IMO.

worrying about the minimal pollution of a Honda generator appears commendable. But it is fretting over nothing and, misses the big picture. The pollution caused by making the battery pack is substantial despite being hidden overseas. The Honda will last 20+ years if maintained. The battery pack is just more disposable Amazon components. I could run a used Honda generator non stop for a month and less pollution than it took to make this thing,

It would not be better, because of a) pollution, b) noise, c) requires petroleum fuel (which must be stored properly and goes bad after a while if you don't use it). Oh, and the electricity output is clean, rather than the noisy electricity you get from generators, which can damage electronics.
