Bluetti EP600 Powerstation with 6,000 W output demonstrated at IFA as EB3A European launch confirmed
Bluetti has presented the new EP600 Powerstation at IFA, launching at the top of the range above the EP500Pro. The device has a maximum power output of 6,000 W, allowing it to power many household gadgets. The EP600 is designed to be partnered with the B500, a modular battery from the brand. The power pack has a 4,960 Wh capacity; you can combine up to 16 batteries to generate up to 79 kWh overall, providing power for longer.
It is expected that you will be able to charge the device via a wall outlet or solar panels, as with many other Bluetti devices. The gadgets are not easy to transport, with the powerstation weighing around 40 kg (~88 lbs) and each battery pack weighing in at 56 kg (~123 lbs). This suggests the products are designed for home use rather than as a travel power supply. The Bluetti EP600 and B500 are expected to launch in 2023, though it is currently unclear how much the devices will cost.
A portable device which has also been demonstrated at the event is the Bluetti EB3A solar generator, which launched in the US earlier this year. The 600 W 268 Wh power station has nine outputs and can be recharged to 80% in 30 minutes. The company has announced its plans to bring the device to Europe shortly. The pricing for this new market is unknown; the gadget retails for US$299 in the US.
