portable power station

Just what you need! The portable power BLUETTI home inverter system is affordable, easy and efficient, ensuring you are not left in the dark!

The winter chill has already set in, and South Africans are turning on their heaters, putting a strain on the country’s overstretched power grid, which may experience its worst-ever blackout – up to 16 hours a day.

Luckily, there is a ray of hope in this energy crisis: BLUETTI, a leading brand in the energy storage industry offers various power solutions. Keep warm and powered for any stage of load shedding:

Portable Power Solutions for Every Need

During this winter sale, BLUETTI features a range of portable power stations to suit different needs. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular choices to get you through the winter in comfort.

Home Battery Backup System — BLUETTI AC300&B300

Starts at R82,999

Ideal for:

  • Households requiring power for large appliances – even the microwave!
  • Can be used anywhere in the home.

Recently, Eskom, the national power utility, is implementing Stage 4 load shedding in the city of Cape Town. That means power cuts from 4 p.m. through the night until 5 a.m. the next morning.

How can you cook dinner and keep the house warm during a blackout? It’s possible with an AC300&B300 power station that provides uninterrupted power to the whole house 24/7. Running large household appliances such as heaters, microwaves, refrigerators, and air conditioners is a breeze as the AC300 can provide 3,000W of continuous power with a 6,000W surge.

The AC300 is modular and requires B300 expansion batteries to provide scalable capacity from 3,072Wh to 12,288Wh, helping you get through several days of power outages. This flexibility allows you to customize your backup power system. If you deplete the battery, it can be quickly restored to 100% with a 3,000W wall charge. Moreover, its max 2,400W solar charging allows you to go completely off-grid.

Expandable Portable Power Station – BLUETTI AC200MAX

Starts at R46,999


  • Ideal for outdoor use and off-site usage of large tools, as well as public events, etc.
  • Can be charged using wall socket or solar panels – or both at the same time for added power!
  • Heavyweight

If you want a rugged generator to take with you for garage DIY projects, outdoor work, or public events, the BLUETTI AC200MAX is for you. An all-in-one versatile powerhouse, it is both powerful and portable. It features a 2,200W AC inverter and a 2,048Wh LFP battery. You can charge blowers, drills, grinders, belt sanders, table saws, and all the most common tools that need to be plugged in.

For even more power, connect the AC200MAX to two expansion batteries for up to 6,144Wh with the B230 or 8,192Wh with the B300. That’s a lot of mobile or portable power for working in the field or living off the grid in a remote cabin. It is worth noting that these expansion batteries are stand-alone DC power banks with three outputs. Sit back and relax, knowing that you’ve always got enough to go around.

The AC200MAX can handle up to 900W of solar input and 500W via the adapter, and you can even charge it from your wall socket and solar panels at the same time, giving you an efficient 1,400W total charge rate that can recharge your power beast in less than two hours! Moreover, each BLUETTI battery module has its own AC adapter input port, giving you an additional 500W of input capacity with each module you add (up to two for the AC200MAX).


Portable Emergency Power – BLUETTI EB3A/ EB70

Starts at R8,999

  • Ideal for small appliances and devices, especially for travel.
  • Can be used for day outings and visits
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Solar-powered.

Winter doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. The weather in South Africa is mostly pleasant and sunny with clear skies and crisp air, although the nights can be cold. It’s a great time to go outdoor for whale watching, camping, hiking, and more.

If you’re planning a winter excursion, pack a portable solar generator like the BLUETTI EB3A and EB70 to enhance your outdoor experience. These portable power boxes are compact, weighing only 4.6kg and 9.7kg respectively, yet powerful enough to supply you with the energy you need to run coffee makers, lights, and projectors, or charge your electronic devices.


Even in the wilderness, you can start a chilly winter morning with a cup of hot coffee or chocolate. A sip while waiting for the sunrise can be a cozy thing to do. With 9 to 12 versatile outlets, including USB ports, AC plugs, and wireless charging pads, your batteries will always be full for photo and video shooting, GPS navigation, and music playback.

When night falls, you can even snuggle up in your tent with an electric blanket powered by these mobile powerhouses. So whether you’re camping in nature or experiencing a power shortage while traveling, the EB70 and EB3A will keep you warm and powered.
