Apart from being the most powerful mobile power station, the Bluetti EP500 is even smarter as it houses an onboard chip. A single unit can provide up to 3000 watts of supply at 120V using the NEMA L14-20 20A receptacle technology.

Bluetti EP500/Pro Accessories
The Bluetti manufactured three different accessories to aid the operations.
Bluetti Home Integration Kit
Unlike the previous year, the company has introduced a fully-working Home Integration Kit that allows the device to be used easily by simply plugging into their home circuits.
The kit includes a sub panel, which gets integrated with the main panel. However, the user can shift vital loads onto the sub-panel so that whenever there’s a power outage, those appliances remain connected to the power supply. Bluetti UPS will immediately take over the supply in less than 20ms.
The Kit will enable flawless integration with your home circuit and will keep running your light, heater, and hot water through taps.
Fusion Box Pro (FOr EP500 Pro)
As with the EP500, Bluetti has created a more advanced Fusion Box Pro for the EP500 Pro UPS. Through the box, the users can connect two EP500 PRO UPS systems to get up to a 6000W power supply.
Such a massive power output is made possible with two 30A outlets which are connected together. The Fusion Box Pro is equipped with an array of heavy-duty 30Amp/20Amp outlets including a 120V/240V 30A(Up to 6000W continuous power) receptacle like we’ve seen before on the Fusion Box, and two NEMA TT-30.
PV Voltage Step-down Modular
Fusion EP500 facilitates renewable energy as it offers the ability to recharge via solar energy. The PV Voltage step-down Modular helps in the same thing to step down voltage so that Bluetti’s volage can step down on your system voltage and adjust total input voltage.
