Portable power plants provide great backup power solutions at your finger tips. While the main advantage of owning one is the fact that these battery powered devices give you an on-demand source of electrical power, there are still other reasons to get a portable power station. First, by having a portable power station on hand, you can finally ensure that you always have a secondary source of electrical power available when needed, which means that you don’t have to rely solely on your city’s power grid during emergencies such as an unexpected power outage or natural disasters. Moreover, portable power stations are also better and cleaner backup power sources compared to gas generators, which emit obnoxious noises and extremely harmful fumes. Finally, by having a portable power station with you on your road trips or camping trips, you’ll always be able to power any electrical and other portable devices you take with you to keep them going, even if your main source of electrical power is running out of juice or intermittently. unexpected.

Not only that, but the entire unit also has a very durable build, as its outer casing is made of high quality TPU plastic.
Last but not least, this portable power station is also rated with multiple safety certifications, including UL standard certification, as well as CEC, DOE, FCC and CA Prop 65 certifications.
Interface / Control Panel
Moving on to the BLUETTI EB3A interface, i.e. its dial panel (located on the front side of the device), which has a very simple and intuitive user interface.
Starting at the top-center part of the unit we have a built-in LCD screen, which, from left to right, displays the device’s current input power in watts, the device’s current battery level, as well as the estimated discharge time of its battery and also the estimated charging time (when recharging), and an information text ECO and UPS for Eco and UPS modes (displayed above the current battery level), the device’s current output power in watts, as well as the AC frequency that is currently being used.
Built into the top right of the device, there is also a built-in LED light that helps illuminate the perimeter of the device at night.
Then, when it comes to its connection board, note that the BLUETTI EB3A’s connection ports are divided into three separate sections (x3) that finally make it easy and straightforward for users to operate this portable power station, including a DC output section (top left and bottom its LCD screen), an AC and DC input section (bottom left), and an AC output section (bottom right).
Starting at the top left of its connection panel, we have the DC output section, which integrates a car’s 12V/10A DC output port, followed by two (x2) 12V/10A DC5521 5.5mm output ports, which are then followed by two (x2) 5V/3A USB-A output ports, then through the 100W PD USB-C 3.0 output port.
Next, at the bottom left of the device’s communication panel, we have the AC and DC input section, which integrates a 12-28V~8.5A solar charging DC input port (which supports up to 200W of solar input) which also doubles as a 12/24V car charging DC input port (by plugging the device into a car’s cigarette lighter power outlet), along with a 268W AC input port with support for 350W turbo charging, as well as an AC circuit breaker that acts as a switch Device overload protection.
Moving to the bottom right of the device connection panel, we have the AC output section, which essentially integrates two (x2) 120V/5A AC output ports that can provide 600W of output power in total, while providing support for up to 1200W of power Rush.
Finally, built into the top side of the device, there’s also a 15W wireless charging pad that can be used to recharge the battery of Qi-enabled devices.
As mentioned earlier, this portable power station also features a Bluetooth connection, which is used as a connection method to establish a wireless connection with the Smartphone Companion application (discussed in more detail later).
Battery and battery life
Regarding the power supply of the device, as mentioned earlier, the BLUETTI EB3A is powered by a LiFePO4 battery pack that has a total battery capacity of 268.8Wh (12Ah), which works on the basis of modern battery management. system technology.
The 268.8Wh LiFePO4 battery system makes this portable power station finally able to recharge a 60W drone about 4.5 times, a 100W battery powered laptop computer 3.5 times, an iPhone 12 for 25 times and a digital camera 5W battery powered for about 50 times, plus continuous electric power supply for 20W fan for 11 hours, 60W mini fridge for 3.6 hours, 5W light for 30 hours, 25W CPAP machine for 9 hours.
It is also important to note that the BLUETTI EB3A’s 268.8Wh LiFePO4 battery system is rated to have approximately 2,500 cycle life to 80% of the original battery capacity, which means that its internal battery makes this portable power station able to last about 6 Up to 8 times longer than portable power stations powered by conventional lithium-ion batteries.
On a side note, in order to ensure the device’s built-in LiFePO4 battery system has the best possible storage life, it is recommended that users recharge the unit to 80% of battery capacity every 3 to 6 months, so keep that in mind.
Finally, when it comes to recharging the internal battery system, note that this portable power station supports a total of 6 different recharging methods.
The first and second methods are quite similar, as they consist of recharging the unit’s battery system directly via the 268W AC input port (by plugging the included AC charging cable into either a wall outlet or generator) which will take about 1.5-2 hours, or approximately 1.3 A watch with 350W turbocharging mode enabled.
The third charging method consists of recharging the device’s battery via the 12-28V ~ 8.5A solar input port, which will take about 3 hours if connected to a 120W solar panel, or only about 2 hours if connected to 200W. solar panel.
The fourth charging method consists of connecting the 12/24V car charging DC input port (that is, the same port as the solar charging input port) to the car cigarette lighter port, which will take 2 to 3 hours of charging time, depending on how much power the port can provide The cigarette lighter in your car.
The fifth charging method consists of using the power station’s dual fast charging function to finally supply it with a total of 430W of input power through the use of a 268W AC input port combined with the 12-28V ~ 8.5A solar charging DC input port (meaning AC) + solar energy), which should only take about 1.2 hours of charging time.
The sixth and final charging method will use the optional BLUETTTI T200 Adapter (sold separately), a dual AC charging adapter that also allows 430W of input power via dual fast charging.
Another great feature offered by this portable power station is that BLUETTI EB3A also integrates 6 power safety functions, which include overload protection, low voltage protection, over temperature protection, low temperature protection, short circuit protection and over current protection .
