With summer in full swing, you might have a few adventures planned. Whether it's a road trip with your friends, a day at the beach or a camping getaway, unless you want to be totally off the grid, you'll want to make sure you pack a portable power station. Portable power stations are exactly what they sound like -- essentially a giant power bank that can be recharged through multiple different methods, including a solar panel, a wall outlet or even your car's cigarette lighter. Bluetti makes some of our absolute favorite power stations on the market right now, claiming three out of six spots on our, and right now you can pick one up at a bargain.
Bluetti is currently offering big discounts on two of our favorite models of the year, the EB3A and the AC200P, with prices starting at just $209. These deals are only available through July 31, so be sure to get your order in before then if you're hoping to snag one at this price.
The compact Bluetti EB3A was named the best value portable power station for 2022, and right now you can pick it up for even less. Weighing in at just over 10 pounds, it still boasts a 268-watt-hour capacity, enough to recharge a phone up to 25 times or camera up to 50 times. It's equipped with a 600-watt AC inverter (1,200-watt surge), as well as nine outputs so you can charge multiple devices at once. Recharging takes just an hour and a half using a wall outlet, or just two hours using a PV200 solar panel.
If size is your number one priority, it doesn't get better than the Bluetti AC200P -- named our favorite large portable power station for 2022. Weighing in at over 60 pounds, it's certainly not for backpacking trips, but it's great for car and RV excursions where you'll need a lot of power. It has a 2,000-watt-hour capacity, which is enough to run a car fridge for around 20 hours, or an air conditioner for up to four hours. It has 17 different outputs so everyone can charge their devices at once, and it has seven different charging inputs. It can recharge in about six hours with a wall outlet, or up to four hours with a Bluetti PV350 solar panel.
