Quick! This top-rated power station (with solar backup) is 40% off

·3-min read

With warmer weather come thunderstorms, and sometimes that means your power goes out. Don't fear the dark! Amazon just slashed the price of top-notch Bluetti Portable Power Stations by 40%. We particularly love this beast — it'll give you enough juice to amp up your phone, laptop and more, and you can recharge the station itself with an optional solar panel. Even long-term outages will feel like a mere hiccup with one of these at your side.

This power station packs in two AC outlets, two USB outlets, one USB-C outlet and a DC outlet. Phew!

The Bluetti Power Station is equipped with a 600W inverter as well as a 268Wh battery pack. There are nine total outlets on the station, which is great for multiple reasons — but mainly because it can charge more than one device, and one type of device, at a time. The whole family can benefit if the power goes out.

And yet, despite all its functionality, it isn't overly bulky. The Bluetti weighs just over ten pounds but is only 10 x 7.1 x 7.2 inches, which is more than small enough to be tucked into the back of a vehicle or a closet until it's needed. It's ideal for use in emergencies, or just for a bit of extra power on camping trips; after all, who says you have to be totally disconnected from your phone to enjoy nature?

According to Bluetti, this power station can keep a mini fridge going for three hours, recharge a phone twenty times or keep you warm with an electric blanket for just under two hours. It also recharges to 80% in just half an hour for when you need power fast. And its power supply is uninterruptible, which makes it a great option for use with computers.

"I do have to say I'm quite impressed with this little beast," one user said. "I needed something for camping and to be able to use my CPAP if I use the DC cigarette lighter outlet plug. I can get through an entire night for eight hours using my CPAP and still have about 20% battery left while also charging an iPhone and an Apple Watch."

"This is probably the most versatile power bank you'll ever own. I even set it up to run the TV, DirecTV DVR, two lamps and the Wi-Fi router for over four hours. Comes in handy when you need 120vac to run a battery charger too far from house current, without breaking out the generator," raved another five-star fan.

This little power station is down to just $209 from its usual price of $349, but for today only.

Keep your tech running for hours, even if you're sitting in the dark.
