BLUETTI AC180 power station debut targets happy campers

SponsoredBLUETTI

Camping has become popular, providing a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life and have close contact with nature. At least for a weekend. But when your mobile battery dies, how do you enjoy that weekend without knowing the footy scores, posting your beautiful location to Insta, or calling mum (aka, the analog Wikipedia) for a damper recipe?

Enter energy storage specialist, BLUETTI with its brand-new AC180 portable power station. On sale 4 May – and a successor to portable stations such as the EB3A and EB150 – the AC180 promises a load of improvements that kit it up a notch, making it an all-purpose portable power station for outback excursions, emergency backup, sudden blackouts, and more. 

Go bush with big capacity 

To help elevate the off-grid lifestyle, BLUETTI equips the AC180 power station with a 1800W constant output power and 1152Wh capacity, covering almost all the power demands of essentials in the wild or at home. The AC180 also comes with a Power Lifting Mode of 2700W output to effortlessly run high-powered devices such as kettles, a heater or coffee maker.

To boot, the forthcoming AC180 includes a 1.7 inch LCD display and large font size to make power consumption and troubleshooting status more visualised and clearly. 

Travel and recharge with grab-and-go power

Pack lighter, travel further. With an eye on portability, AC180 is ultra-compact for easy transportation, measuring 340x247x317mm and weighing only 17kg. For sure, it won’t take up too much space in the ute or 4WD on the way to the next campsite. 

Of course, when you’re after backup power for camping or trips or exploring off the beaten track far from the main grid, you need a reliable power source that is always on call. The AC180 supports up to 1440W Turbo Charging, and 0-80% recharge takes only around 45 minutes. Charge it up before packing up for the getaway, and a large amount of power is ready to hit the road when you are.   

Constant power with peace of mind

With an integrated UPS (uninterrupted power supply) system, there’s no need to worry about losing data or hardware damage in the event of a power outage. The AC180 can automatically detect a blackout the moment it occurs and seamlessly switch over in 20ms. 

Prioritising high security and longevity, BLUETTI also adopts safe and durable LiFePO4 battery cells and guarantees a worry-free warranty for as long as five years, which really sets it apart from most competitors. 

Remotely monitoring AC180 in real-time is a no-brainer too, thanks to the intelligent BLUETTI APP. Now, setting up working modes, checking the system conditions, and over-the-air updates can be done with just your fingertips.   

“We’re dedicated to more innovation that’s a right fit for the increasing market demand,” says James Ray, the marketing director of BLUETTI. “Our R&D team once envisioned a power station integrated with portability, capability, and cost performance, and now we’ve made it come true. AC180 has everything users could possibly need without costing an arm and a leg.” 

Availability

The official launch date for the AC180 is to set for 4 May, which is also the day to commemorate all things Star Wars (May the BLUETTI force be with you!). Pricing is yet to be announced.
