Connect the wires of critical equipment from your house electric panel to BLUETTI Smart Home Panel*.
Then connect EP500Pro to the Smart Home Panel.
* Sold separately.
Q5: What is the UPS switching time?
A5: There are two types of working conditions of UPS for EP500Pro system.
1) No delay for online UPS;
2) 20ms from standby UPS.
Q6: What is the maximum input charging power of the BLUETTI EP500Pro?
A6: 4,000W Max.
Q7: How can it reach 3,000W AC recharging?
A7: Plug it to a 30A wall socket with the 30A AC charging cable*.
* Sold separately.
Q8: What kind of solar panels should I choose for EP500Pro?
A8: PV input requirements for EP500Pro:
Open Circuit Voltage: 35-150V
Input Power: 2,400W Max.
Include MC4 connectors.
6x BLUETTI PV120: ≈8hrs*.
5x BLUETTI PV200: ≈6hrs*.
3x BLUETTI PV350: ≈5.5hrs*.
* For reference ONLY.
Q9: Can I use my solar roof to charge the EP500Pro?
A9: Yes, but please note your solar roof should have:
1. NO micro-inverter
2. an open-circuit voltage of 35-150V
3. MC4 connectors
However, when the OCV falls in 150-550V, you can also use BLUETTI D300S* to step down the voltage and achieve solar charging.
* Sold separately.
Q10: Can I connect two EP500Pro together for more power (240V Split Phase Bonding)?
A10: Yes. With the Fusion Box (P030A), you can connect two EP500Pro in series for 240V/6,000W output.
Q11: Can EP500Pro connect with EP500?
A11: No. Only EP500 to EP500, or EP500Pro to EP500Pro is acceptable.
Q12: Can it charge and discharge at the same time?
Q13: How do I know whether my appliance can work well with the EP500Pro?
A13: Calculate the total wattage of your devices. EP500Pro should work if the load doesn't exceed its rated 3,000W.
Q14: How long can it run my device?
A14: Running time = Battery capacity × DoD × η ÷ Device rated power
DoD refers to Depth of Discharge and η is local inverter efficiency.
For EP500Pro, both DoD and η are 90%. If you run a 1,000W microwave oven with it, the running time will be:
5,100Wh × 90% × 90% ÷ 1,000W ≈ 4.1hrs Note:
1) The formula is NOT suitable for inductive loads with compressors, like refrigerator, air conditioner, etc.
2) The above data is for reference ONLY.
Q15: Is the EP500Pro power station waterproof?
A15: No. Also, please do NOT store it in a humid environment for a long time.
Q16: When I keep the power plugged in, will EP500Pro stop charging automatically when fully charged?
A16: Yes. And when the SOC is less than 100%, EP500Pro will automatically charge again without damage to the battery.
Q17: Is it possible to replace the built-in battery?
A17: No. If the internal battery pack is faulty or even dead, please contact BLUETTI Customer Service.

Great product 👌
I use this for off grid camping and it will run my 65 qt fridge for 2 days with out a recharge. It fully charges on AC in about an hour and about 4 hours on my 160 watt panel. It weighs less than 20 lbs and has a small footprint. Great software interface..what is not to like!
Rusty, thank you for your review, and it sounds like this setup is perfect for your situation. Let us know if we can ever be of help for anything else. We appreciate you!
The product was perfect, the price was better than competitors but shipping with DHL is terrible. It took TEN DAYS to get here. Pony Express could have gotten it here faster.
Hi Ken, thanks for your review and I'm glad you're happy with the Infinity Cable. Thanks also for your feedback on DHL as we can look into why that took so long and make changes accordingly. Please feel welcome to reach out if we can ever be of service again! - Bill
