    portable backup power

    ive been seeing more and more great reviews for bluetti 2000. it aint cheap but with portable solar panel power costs nothing once you buy it. no gas or diesel or oil or filter changes to worry about and can be discharged and recharged 3500 times before it night need new batteries.
    it can keep your refrigerator running and other stuff going when your way out in woods or at home when power goes out.
    does anyone have practical experience with these?

    Check out the EcoFlow Delta Pro. 3600 watts, 7200 peak expandable for more/longer run times. Claim you can charge a tesla with it.

    Lots of videos online. Gonna pull the trigger when someone puts it on sale.

    One dude across the pond charged it with 4x 30v ridged panels on a clear, sunny, winter day in 4.5 hours.

    Looks great for camping or in a RV.

    If it's for power outages at home, I'd wonder how good it'd be if the power didn't come back on fairly soon.

    OK People. Enough of this idle chit-chat.

    Just watched this. Its a bit long but pretty in depth. I've come to the same conclusion as FarmBif. I think you could generate and store enough power to run a few critical things without external fuels.

    I am sizing my wellpump and the pumps and blowers for my hot water heat system - wood and propane to see if this will work in a pinch.

    . I have the delta pro. I wired a transfer box/switch to the house. I bought 400 watts of cheap (harbor freight) solar panels to charge it up. It took about 6 hours. I have every
    120 circuit hooked up to the panel and with moderate use can get about 15 hours use before charging. The delta pro doesn’t do 220, so the hot water heater and ac cannot be used. I bought
    A 5000 btu window ac, but even that pulls the delta down to about 4 hours use before dead. Tat was without the solar panels hooked up so ymmv.
