SPONSORED NEWS – Climate change has long pushed the world towards carbon neutrality, prompting the transition from conventional energy systems to renewable systems such as chemical batteries and battery-powered machines. Lithium-ion chemical batteries have thus dominated applications in consumer electronics, automobiles and even aviation since their introduction by Sony Corporation in 1991. However, energy change is faced with the lithium supply crisis. with growing demand on a large scale. Referring to the Periodic Table of the Elements, sodium and lithium are the closest metals in the same group with very similar chemical properties, and there is over a thousand times more sodium than lithium in the earth’s crust. Sodium-ion batteries are then an optimal alternative.

BLUETTI Power Inc, based in Las Vegas, is the world’s leading manufacturer of solar power installations, including solar generators, photovoltaic panels and related accessories. Its residential power plants launched over the past two years (AC200P, EP500 and AC300) have stood out in the promising solar solutions market, and it is now venturing to integrate innovative sodium-ion battery technology into its future solar products.

Recently, BLUETTI announced the world’s first sodium ion solar generator, the NA300, and its compatible battery pack, the B480, on its social media.

The NA300 and B480 are said to seamlessly inherit all the styling and appearance settings from its predecessor – EP500 Pro, specifically four 20A outlets and a 30A L14-30 output port driven by the inverter to Built-in 3000W pure sine wave to refuel most household appliances. In addition, the NA300 still exceeds the EP500 Pro’s incredible 2,400W solar input to 3,000 W. It can be cited as the fastest charging solar generator as it can be recharged from 0% to 80%. in half an hour by a double fast charge AC + PV of 6000 W. (3000 W max. for the AC and the PV) However, the NA300 offers a capacity of 3000 Wh, that is to say less than the 5100 Wh of the EP500 Pro in the same size due to current limitations in sodium-ion battery technology.

Favorably, it supports up to two B480 battery modules (4800Wh each) for a massive total capacity of 12.600Wh, and the unit can maintain constant supply for a family’s electricity needs for several days or even a week in the event of a network failure or natural disasters. with recharging by solar panels. In addition, the NA300 also offers the 240V, 6000W connection with a Fusion Box and another NA300, the remote control of the IoT application by iOS or Android, and other advantages of the EP500 Pro.

The first generation sodium-ion battery rivals LiFePO4 battery cells widely used in other BLUETTI products in terms of safety and long life except low energy density; yet the former excels in cost, low temperature performance, fast charging and other electrochemical aspects due to its chemical characteristics. BLUETTI’s sodium-ion battery can charge in less than 30 minutes to 80% SOC at room temperature. In addition, in a low temperature environment of -20 ° C (-4 ℉), this sodium-ion battery pack in NA300 and B480 has a capacity retention rate of over 85% and offers system integration efficiency. by over 80%, which is perfect for powering in winter or in areas with extremely low temperatures.

Besides the NA300’s debut at CES 2022, BLUETTI is also expected to unveil a range of new products in front of a global audience, demonstrating their cutting-edge technology and alternative power solutions towards a sustainable future.
