When any natural disaster occurs, one of the first things that is usually done to restore normalcy is to restore the power supply. This happens on a large scale but also on a private level. If due to a nearby fire or a storm we see how the electricity supply is suspended In our home or work, it is necessary to be able to be prepared.
Preparing does not mean having to specialize in survival techniques or investing a large amount of money in expensive, large-volume devices that help us survive. The solution is a charging station that allows essential equipment to be connected in the event of a power failure. But not only at home since they are also really useful outdoors, for example in campsites or if we like to camp in places where there is no network connection.
One of the most anticipated is the recently introduced Bluetti EB55, a powerful portable charging station that can also be recharged using solar energy.
A few weeks ago, Bluetti presented its AC200MAX and AC300 charging stations that, although they performed very well, their size could be a handicap for many. The new EB55 is perfect if what we need is to charge small appliances and devices. Let’s see it in detail, starting with its measurements.
Size and capacity of the new Bluetti EB55
The new Bluetti EB55 has a size of 20 centimeters high, almost 28 centimeters long and also 20 centimeters wide. In terms of weight, it does not reach seven and a half kilos.
Inside it has one 537 Wh / 700 W lithium ferrophosphate battery (LiFePO4), one of the most stable and durable in the industry and capable of delivering up to 2,500 charges without dropping the battery capacity below 80%.
Ports and recharge time
The Bluetti EB55 solar charging station is capable of charging up to eleven devices simultaneously. If we are in the middle of nowhere, without access to an outlet, the portable charging station can charge a computer at full speed, even a recent one like a current MacBook Pro.
It has the following ports, compatible with practically all electronic devices.
1 USB C port, 4 5V / 3A USB-A ports, 2 traditional 220-240 V plug outlets, 1 230V / 60W cigarette lighter socket, 2 12V / 10A DC 5521 ports, 2 15W wireless charging stations.
As for recharging the station, it supports different ways. Perhaps one of the most important is solar, thanks to the included panels it is the perfect ally in field areas. Using this type of charge, we will only need approximately four hours to reach a full charge.
If we use in wall socket, time is shortened to three and a half hours. As for charging in the car through the lighter, you can go up to six o’clock. Finally, it is the most recommended, and it is to carry out the simultaneous charge between current and solar in which a maximum of two hours of charge will be made.
Where to buy it (discount of up to 60 euros)
The new Bluetti EB55 portable charging station is sold on the official website for 659 euros in two colors, blue and black. However, taking advantage of the launch offer, we can save 60 euros, so it stays at only 599 euros.
Inside the box, in addition to the charging station itself, come the necessary cables to use it both in car, wall and solar power outlets. What’s more, It has a 24 month warranty, something very important in this type of device.
Bluetti EB55 is available in both Europe and Mexico.
