Following the immense success of its AC200P, Bluetti has announced a more powerful variant to it. Called Bluetti AC200 Max, it is an expanded version of AC200P with a 2200W inverter and expandable storage capacity.
Like AC200P, it basically features a 2048Wh (51.2V 40Ah) LiFePO4 battery pack, but you can expand it up to up to 8192Wh using the brand’s exclusive expansion battery modules. The additional batteries are available in two models; B230 and B300.
If the included battery pack is not enough for your needs, you can expand the system with up to two units of either a B230 or B300 battery pack. These extra battery packs also work with AC200 and AC200P apart from the newly announced AC300 power box.
The additional battery packs also feature their own USB and DC outlets for powering your devices. Check out more details here.
Update: Bluetti is expected to start selling AC200 Max in August 2021.

Bluetti AC200P/AC200 History
Bluetti launched its much-excited AC200 back in 2020 with a 1700Wh LG EV-Grade battery pack. The product could make a wave on the market with over 12K backers support it on Indiegogo.
But the company upgraded it with the 2048Wh LiFePO4 battery pack later and rebranded it as AC200P. That product is certainly one of the market’s best-seller mid-range power stations today.
More recently, the brand unveiled two massive solar power stations, EP500 and EP500 Pro on Kickstarter, which also attracted a lot of backers. Most of the brand’s latest products have been doing quite well. They have been true trendsetters as they come up with stunning features, power, and storage capacities.
Price and Availability
The brand plans to launch Bluetti AC200 Max directly on BluettiPower.Com in August 2021.
Update: Bluetti has announced the early bird pricing of the power station and the expansion modules. AC200 Max will be retailing at $1699, and the B230 and B300 battery modules will be carrying the price tags of $1249 and $1599 respectively.
The new Bluetti products will be available in the USA, Canada, and other global markets, including the UK, where they will be under the branding, PowerOak.
That has been our take on the upcoming Bluetti AC200 Max. It is going to be a great product of the kind with the same design and portability factor as AC200P. The device features a size of 15.2 x 16.5 x 11 in and it weighs 61.9 lbs without a battery pack. Share your thoughts about the machine in the comments below.
