Why did BLUETTI decide to introduce another home energy storage system, following the release of a similar EP900 model months ago?
Grid-tied or off-grid solar systems with big batteries allow users to store excess clean energy and maintain power in the case of grid outages or power blackouts. BLUETTI, a top player in the energy storage field, is set to bring out another battery solution–EP800 in September this year.
The BLUETTI EP800 & B500 is a 7,600W modular home energy storage system(ESS), featuring 9,000W PV input and scalable capacity from 9,920Wh to 19,840Wh. Similar to the EP900, it is widely compatible with existing or future solar panels for energy bill saving and blackout preparedness.
Besides their output performance, the main difference between EP800 and EP900 lies in their ability to connect to the utility grid. The former is a pure off-grid system, while the latter also supports on-grid connection, whose installation therefore could take several months with time-consuming paperwork and inspection processes. With an easy and quick installation of a few hours, the EP800 is a blessing for those in urgent need of complete battery systems to pair with their solar setups.
Key Features of the BLUETTI EP800 System
Flexible capacity from 9,920Wh to 19,840Wh | The EP800’s modular design allows users to tailor their energy storage capacity to their specific needs. By choosing two to four B500 battery packs, each providing 4,960Wh, you’ll have a customized capacity ranging from 9,920Wh to a maximum of 19,840Wh. Using LiFePO4 batteries available, the EP800 could have a at least ten-year lifespan.
The BLUETTI EP800 takes less than 20ms to switch from grid power to its battery, providing stored power for all your essential appliances, large and small, such as refrigerators, dryers, water pumps, electric stoves, lights, and medical equipment. An EP800 with two battery packs can power an average refrigerator for four days, or eight days with four packs. That means homeowners can rest easy knowing that those steaks and ice creams will never again end up in the trash.
7,600W output and 9,000W solar input | The EP800 system delivers up to 7,600 W power for the whole household. It can run both your 120V TVs and 240V pumps with ease. With dual MPPT charge controllers inside, EP800 can maximize solar input at 9,000W.
Solar panel compatibility | Whether homeowners already have installed solar panels or plan to do so in the future, the EP800 seamlessly integrates into your solar panels with its DC-coupled connectivity.
Indoor or outdoor installs | As an off-grid energy storage unit, the BLUETTI EP800 can be set up in a few hours with simple hook and screw steps. Even DIYers or homeowners interested in electricity can handle it. Instead of being mounted on the wall, it can be stacked vertically without damaging the wall or take up too much space. With a NEMA 4X rating and quiet operation at less than 50dB, homeowners can easily install it indoors or outdoors.
Intelligent operation | The EP800 can adapt to varying weather conditions, regulating its discharging processes based on ambient temperature through its advanced thermal management technology. With the BLUETTI app, homeowners can monitor system performance, track your power consumption and generation, and adjust settings remotely via WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity from anywhere at any time. Moreover, OTA updates are available for added convenience.
