IF YOU”RE THINKING OF CHANGING TO LITHIUM FOR YOUR HOUSE BANK WATCH THIS VIDEO!
Following on from the Ecoflow review, this is looking at a more powerful unit from PowerOak. The Bluetti EC200P could be used as a house bank for a small boat and as it comes with an excellent 2KW inverter and MPPT capable of taking 750W of solar it’s a one stop shop for electrical power on your boat.
There are even more powerful versions of these sorts of units coming to the market and they really could provide a viable (and cheaper) way of transferring over to LiFePo4 type batteries, which I think most boats will be doing in the next few years.
Switching to Lithium isn’t a slot in procedure no matter how you do it because of all the charging systems involved, but having in built MPPT’s will at least make your solar installation more straight forward.
I want to give these guys a shout out as I got some great info from them in my research,
so do check out their channels.
Hobotec have done a test on a pre-production model of an even more powerful power station from Bluetti that could power large boats, something to put in the mix when you’re thinking about moving from lead acid to Lithium for house power.
I’m working on the web page to give more details and to give feed back on how the units I have are performing, I’ll put the link here when it’s done.
