I researched a small battery power station for longer than I care to admit. I finally decided to go with the Bluetti EB55 Portable Power Station powered by LifePO4, (lithium iron phosphate), batteries. A big part of that decision is that LiFePO4 batteries are safe and have great longevity. According to Bluetti the EB55 can be charged and discharged about 2,500 times before the batteries become degraded to only 80 percent of their original output. That is an amazing 6.8 years if used every day.
It is a very compact unit measuring about 11 inches across, 8 inches high, and 8 inches deep weighing just over 16 pounds. The handle folds into the top allowing for a flat top and easy storage. It has the ability for dual charging up to 400 watts when using solar and the AC adapter. It can handle about 200 watts with a single charging source. This enables the EB55 to be charged very quickly. I was able to charge it from 0 to 100 percent in two hours and 40 minutes with the AC adapter charger.
The EB55 comes with an AC adapter charger, a 12v adapter charging cord, and a solar adapter. The solar panels are sold separately. Even more impressive is the amount of output ports. Thirteen in total, it boasts 4 AC outlets with a 700-watt pure sine inverter, 1 USB-C 100 watt port, 4 5v USB-A 3 amp ports, 1 DC regulated cigarette 12v port at 10 amps, 2 (5.5mmx2.1mm) 5521 barrel 12v ports at 10 amps, and a wireless 12v-28v charging pad on top. It can even handle pass-through charging.
The main display is bright and easy to read. It displays the charge status in 20% increments. Although I had no issue with this many users complain it doesn't show charge status in 1% increments. It also shows output watts and input watts.
It claims to have 537-watt hours and I found that equates to about 470 usable watt-hours. During my initial use, it performed very well. It even has a red warning light when the unit needs recharging. As I stated it charges in under three hours with the 200-watt AC adapter but the 12v cigarette plug (100 watts) will take about twice as long.
I tested the EB55 running my SetPower 12v compressor refrigerator. It ran for a remarkable 52 hours. It also effortlessly charged my electronic devices such as my laptop, camera batteries, cell phone, and tablet barely making a dent in the battery capacity. One more great feature is the light included on the back of the unit. It is a larger more diffused light in lieu of a flashlight-type spotlight. It is perfect for use as a lantern, lighting up a small area such as a campsite. Below is my video review. You can also see the user manual below in PDF format and links to Bluetti products.
