May is the month where the lure of the outdoors calls to you. You’ve opened your windows and started to breathe fresh air again. You’ve found your favorite t-shirts and shorts. With Memorial Day slowly approaching, you’ll soon see red poppies appearing across the country to honor those military personnel who died as they protected our country. You’ll attend parades and take a moment of self-reflection on the day of remembrance for a more peaceful future.
The luxury of freedom gives you opportunities to spend time with friends and family as you host Memorial Day backyard barbecues. Savory smells of the grill and the laughter that comes with fun and informal dinners will fill the air. You’ll use this unofficial first weekend of the summer revisiting cherished recreational activities and showing appreciation for those who died in US military service.
Of course, this image of relaxation and respect changes if power outputs everything up.That’s why BLUETTI — which makes some of the very best generators on the market, with a wide range of sizes and options that you can pick from — has launched the Veteran & Military Benefits Program for the upcoming Memorial Day.
Military personnel, whether they are discharged or in service, receive 10% off the BLUETTI models EP500/EP500Pro, AC200MAX bundle, AC200P, EB70Sand EB55.

EP500/EP500Pro-Home Backup Makes Perfect Sense.
(EP500-original price $4,599sale price $4,399; EP500Pro-original price $5,999sale price $4,999)
In 2020, the US experienced 1.48 million power outage hours, according to Power Outage US, which tracks, records, and aggregates this data.That’s a 73% increase from 2019. Because the growth in power outages has fluctuated yearly, the outlook for power stability doesn’t look much better for the remainder of 2022.
The EP500/EP500Pro offers a new era of home backup power. It provides 5,100Wh capacity to keep household essentials running for days. Designed to care for electrical appliances rated below 2000W or 3000W, once it’s connected to the grid it will automatically detect power failures and instantly provide backup power for the entire house.
The BLUETTI app allows for remote control and over-the-air (OTA) firmware upgrades, which separates it from competitors.
AC200MAX+B230: All Comes From the Sun.
(original price $3,299sale price $3,099)
The BLUETTI AC200MAX is a solar generator, expansion battery, and solar panel — -all in one bundle that will provide power quickly and reliably. It’s definitely one of the top solar generators out there, according to multiple reviewsdue to its long feature list, massive battery system, and AC inverter.
The BLUETTI AC200MAX is capable of running high-drain appliances that have a rated power lower than 2,200W, and it can handle up to 4,800W instant startup power. It’s BLUETTI’s first expandable solar power station, able to attain a maximum 8,192Wh capacity by hooking up two B300 battery packs (3,072Wh per pack). AC200MAX takes the utmost 900W solar input and 500W AC input. When charging with solar panels and an AC adapter together, it will get to a full capacity within two hours.
You can set up this solar system in the great outdoors or rely on it for home backup. For RV or camping enthusiasts, AC200MAX makes powering car electrical appliances easy with a 30A NEMA TT-30 outlet and 12V/30A Super DC outlet.
The BLUETTI app masters everything about AC200MAX at any time, from anywhere.
AC200P: Power Anything, Anywhere.
(original price $1,599sale price $1,499)
AC200P is typical of the BLUETTI style, comprising portability and power capability. No matter where you are — at home during an unexpected outage, in your backyard, on a worksite, in the woods, on a road trip — you can always count on BLUETTI AC200P as your reliable off-grid power source.
RV trips, camping, fishing, and wilderness adventures, according to BLUETTI CPO James Ray, “have been trending upward. Our portable solar products are designed for literature carrying convenience as well as powerful output.”
AC200P delivers a maximum of 2,000W continuous AC power (4,800W surge) and is built with a 2,000Wh or 40Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. Such battery cells will remain 80% of their original capacity after 3,500 full cycles and last 6-8 times longer than the alternatives, like Lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) and lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA).
AC200P also can draw 900W power from solar panels and 500W from the AC power sources. When connected to both at the same time, it will be charged up in less than 2 hours. AC200P is able to power 17 devices at once. Its output options include the classic 100-120V AC outlet, Type-C, USB-A, DC5521, car socket, 12V/25A RV port, and wireless charger on the top; these would cover almost all daily electronics.
EB70S+EB55: Good Things Come in Small Packages.
(EB70S-Original price $599sale price $549)
These two BLUETTI portable power stations are small but complete in every detail. They closely resemble each other, except for the battery capacity and output power.
- The EB70S packs with a 716Wh LiFePO4 battery and 800W AC pure sine wave inverter.
- The EB55 has a 537Wh battery and 700W inverter.
After 2,500 discharges and charges, the EB70S and EB55 will retain approximately 80% of their rated capacity, also thanks to the LiFePO4 battery chemistry. They both feature 12 outlets to charge multiple devices simultaneously.
The charging is also similar in both portable power stations, supporting dual charging with 200W solar and 200W AC input. The folding handle on top of the unit is advantageous for on-the-go or outdoor getaways.
