I believe that the Bluetti AC200P moveable power station may possibly be my favorite evaluation product so far. It definitely is the major — and the heaviest product I have ever obtained to evaluation.

The AC200P by itself is about the measurement of a cat provider — 16.5 x fifteen.two x eleven inches – and it is major at sixty.six lbs in excess weight. But this weighty cube is packed complete of characteristics.

When entirely billed, the AC200P will want to be recharged only as soon as every 3-six months.
