Last week, BLUETTI showed off its latest innovations at IFA, Berlin, including the AC500+B300S combo, AC200 series, and most importantly, the long-rumored solar system-EP600+B500, which is a three-phase system that features a 6kW inverter and maximum 79kWh LFP battery capacity.
Looking for the perfect solar battery can feel overwhelming. There are so many different options available and parsing through them all can prove tough. And if you were looking for a one-size-fits-all solution, you’d be out of luck.
Flexibility is always the first priority of BLUETTI’s innovations. Since the launch of the AC300+B300 system in 2021, BLUETTI started to make their premium solar power systems modular, bringing extraordinary versatility and compatibility. The latest EP600 and B500 inherit this feature.
What is the EP600 solar battery system?
The modular design of EP600 significantly shrinks the overall weight and size. It is packed with a whopping 6000W bi-directional inverter for AC input and output, providing AC power at 230/400V to easily run almost any household electric appliances.

With a 99.9% MPPT solar efficiency, you can power all your fun with the sunshine from a decent solar panel array!
As an expansion battery, B500 is tailored made for the EP600 system. It features 4,960Wh ultra-durable LFP battery cells, an aluminum alloy appearance, and the exact same size as EP600. Every EP600 supports up to 16 battery modules to reach a total 79.3kWh capacity, which can cover all power needs at home or off-the-grid for days or even over a week! EP600 and B500 can be orderly stacked to save much space inside or outside your house. Whenever power is needed, the BLUETTI EP600 system is ready to help.
Why’s the battery so important for a solar powered system?
Generally speaking, a solar power system includes solar panels and a solar generator with built-in or expansion batteries.
Solar panels efficiently collect sunlight and convert it into storable electricity in batteries for later use, making it possible to use solar energy even after sunset or on cloudy days.

The system also provides a budget-saving solution to access sustainable energy while reducing carbon footprints on our planet.
So whether you wish to lower your electricity bill or prepare for any unexpected power outages or natural disasters, this EP600 energy storage system is a solid backup power source you can always depend on.
What makes the EP600 system outstanding?
Home energy storage systems have been around for years and have made a difference in our lives. Now numerous varieties and sizes are available.
Compared to other existing solar generators in the market, EP600 comes with a hybrid inverter system within the belly, which means all you need to do is plug solar panels into the solar generator. No more solar inverter or MPPT controller is required.
Availability & pricing
It’s reported that some countries and areas have taken drastic steps to alleviate the energy crisis gripping Europe, especially for the upcoming winter.
