A majority of the batteries are made of Lithium-ion. However, it’s no secret that the earth’s crust has a limited amount of Lithium, causing an acute shortage of Lithium-ion batteries. So companies making such products now look elsewhere for renewable energy sources. Bluetti, a company specializing in renewable energy power sources, has come up with a unique solution – NA300, the world’s first sodium-ion solar generator.
The Bluetti NA300 is a modular solar power station, which you can pair with two expansion battery units, Bluetti B480, to amp up the power supply.
Like its Lithium counterparts, the NA300 is powerful and can run several devices at once. So, here’s all about the new Bluetti NA300, the first sodium-ion solar generator in the world.
The Bluetti NA300 brings innovative tech to the table. The Sodium-Ion battery rivals the popular LiFePO4 (Lithium iron phosphate) battery cells in battery life cycle and security.
The new Sodium-Ion batteries have a capacity retention of over 85%. At the same time, they have a system integration efficiency of over 80%. These features make them perfect for operating in extreme low-temperature regions (-20 degrees).
It’s worth noting that LiFePO4 cells still have better low-temperature performance and can recharge quickly because of their chemical characteristics.
HUGE CAPACITY & POWERFUL
The Bluetti NA300 has a large battery capacity of 3,000Wh and is good enough for long stints with no power.
It also boasts expandability. The Bluetti B480 has a huge power capacity and can carry a charge of 4,800Wh each. You can add up to two battery expansion units, which means a whopping 12,600Wh. This gives you the power and flexibility to run demanding household equipment.
Alternatively, the NA300 can also be paired with another NA300 via a Fusion Box to deliver around 6000W of power.
Naturally, it’s enough to power you through several days at a single stretch. And like most solar generators, you can recharge the NA300 quickly by hooking it up with a compatible solar panel unit.
One of the main highlights of the Bluetti NA300 is its fast recharge time. Bluetti claims that the NA300 is the fastest charging solar generator.
The NA300 is the fastest charging solar generator.
If we talk numbers, the NA300 can go from 0% to 80% in around 30 minutes at room temperature when you connect it to both AC power and PV (Photovoltaic) charging. The maximum limitation is 3,0000W for both PV and AC charging.
Like most of the Bleutti power gears, the first-generation sodium-ion solar generator brings a clever design. The wheels at the bottom let you move it around. So you can to wire it to your house easily. Also, recharging, or taking it out to connect to solar panels is convenient.
Furthermore, it comes with four 20A plugs and a single 30A L14-30 output port, making it convenient to plug in essential devices. At the same time, the 3,000W pure sine wave inverter should be good enough to power your house in times of need.
Finally, the NA300 is a versatile power station. You can tie two NA300 via a Fusion Box and get up to 6000W @ 240V. And that’s not all. You can control the generator via its companion app.
The companion app is available for both iOS and Android. Using it, you can monitor the status of your Bluetti device.
A PINCH OF SALT
So, how much does it take to run the world? If we talk numbers, it’s somewhere around 3 trillion watts. And this number is only going to increase in the coming years. The best way to handle this issue and not pressure the limited resources is with more clever solutions.
