Bluetti, a company that manufactures home power stations like generators, photovoltaic panels, and other such products, started working on sodium-based battery technology to integrate it into its next-gen power stations. Instead of developing lithium-based generators, it has turned to sodium as both metals have similar chemical properties. Moreover, compared to lithium, there is over a thousand times more sodium available in the Earth’s crust.
Bluetti has integrated its sodium-based battery technology into its new NA300 sodium-ion solar generator. Along with the NA300, the company will also unveil a compatible battery pack, the B480. Although the NA300 will feature the same look and style as Bluetti’s previous products, which are loved by consumers, it could become the fastest charging solar generator as it can go from 0-80% in just half an hour time.
That is thanks to the 3,000W solar input capability of the generator that can intake more power from the Sun in a short period of time, using its 6,000W swift AC + PV dual-charging technology. There will be four 20A plugs and one 30A L14-30 output port to connect various home appliances.
Moreover, the sodium-ion battery pack inside the NA300 and B480 has a capacity retention rate of more than 85% and delivers a system integration efficiency of more than 80% when it operates in low-temperature environments.
