As the world shifts towards clean energy solutions, BLUETTI is standing out as a leader in the field of eco-friendly power sources. BLUETTI's upcoming launch of the AC60 & B80 solar generator promises to bring even more convenience and sustainability to portable power use. In this post, we will discuss the features, benefits, and applications of the AC60 and the B80 in detail.

Quick Overview

With over 10 years of industry experience, BLUETTI is a market leader in green energy storage solutions, serving customers in more than 70 countries. Let's look at the high level specs of their latest energy storage offering.

The AC60 is a solar generator with a 600W inverter and a 403Wh LFP battery. Its compact and lightweight size (11.4 x 8.1 x 9.2 inches, 18.9 lbs) makes it easy to carry around for camping trips, outdoor activities, and more. The B80 serves as an expansion battery for the AC60, allowing the battery capacity to increase to up to 2,015Wh.

The AC60 & B80's potential benefit to electric bikers

When coupled with the B80, the AC60 can fully charge most electric bike batteries twice before depleting. At 19.1 lbs, it's also completely feasible to take the system along with you when you leave your car and take your electric bikes off the beaten path, so to speak. You would need a decent size front basket, or a rear cargo rack, however, most off-road camping e-bikes come with those equipped.

Moreover, the AC60 comes with an IP65 rating for protection from water and dust, making it a durable option for prolonged outdoor usage. The system could be an ideal companion on a hunting trip, especially since most hunting bikes can easily carry the extra 20 lbs.

The AC60 has four charging methods – adaptor, car, solar, and generator – thus adding versatility to its usage. The 600W AC Turbocharging feature can recharge 0-80% of the battery in just 40 minutes, a compelling feature for those on the go. 

The generator also includes an intuitive color LCD screen that displays battery percentage and other helpful information, as well as a BLUETTI App for real-time monitoring and control.  

Using the AC60 provides multiple benefits, including a sustainable and clean energy solution for portable power needs. Smart monitoring and control capabilities make it easy to use, even for those unfamiliar with solar power.

With a versatile charging system, it offers quick and efficient recharge times, which adds convenience for its users. 

This is a huge benefit to adventuring electric bike enthusiasts as it only takes 45 min for the AC60 to charge from 0-80% capacity, which is nothing compared to your typical 5-7 hour e-bike charging time.

You'll come to understand that when you need to take some backup power along for the ride, the AC60 can be a powerful ally (no pun intended).

The AC60 has various applications outside of electric biking, it’s ideal for camping, road trips, remote work, tailgating, and RVing, among others. It also serves as an emergency power backup, providing users with the peace of mind that they can power their gear in unforeseen circumstances.

In Summary...

BLUETTI's AC60 provides a sustainable, economical, and practical alternative to traditional power sources. With an expanding selection of eco-friendly energy storage solutions, it is becoming increasingly clear that BLUETTI understands the importance of clean energy use.

The AC60 is just one of their many offerings that will help reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment. The AC60 and its complementary B80 Expansion Battery will be available in late May at a budget-friendly price, making it a fantastic investment for all-electric bike owners.
