What we love about the Bluetti AC200MAX

This allows you to transform the AC200MAX from a single portable power station to a full-range, super high-power, complete home backup system.

Bluetti AC200MAX Pro Tips:

  • PRO TIP 1: Install a manual transfer switch for the Bluetti AC200MAX to switch between grid power and generator power for specific circuits in the home.
  • PRO TIP 2: The AC200MAX is compatible with any brand of solar panel as long as it meets the required 10 Volts of input and there’s enough sunlight.
  • PRO TIP 3: Be careful when charging multiple high-power things at the same time, like CPAP machines, microwaves, or space heaters. More than 2-3 high-wattage devices at the same time will quickly zap the battery.
  • SAFETY TIPS: Handle with care to ensure longevity, avoid exposure to rain and extreme temperatures, store in a cool and dry place when not in use, don’t let the battery discharge to 0% for long periods of time, don’t let the battery overcharge past 100%.
