Bluetti Power Inc. based in Las Vegas is a leading world manufacturer of solar energy facilities including solar generators, photovoltaic panels, and related accessories and now they have made the world’s first Sodium-ion Solar generator.

With the rising awareness of global warming and climate change, technology is trying to head towards carbon neutrality, which urges the transition from conventional energy systems to renewable ones like chemical batteries and battery-powered machines.

And to this end, the world, in general, is shifting away from traditional fossil fuels to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources such as lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.

Lithium-ion batteries thereby have set their dominance for applications in consumer electronics, automobiles, and even aviation since their commercialization by Sony Corporation in 1991.

However, this sudden energy shift on such a massive scale has led to a global supply crunch for this comparatively rare metal and it has made it necessary for us to explore and find alternative sources.

In order to combat this near future scarcity issue, Bluetti has decided to use Sodium-ion batteries instead of lithium-ion, Sodium is one of the closest metals to lithium as it has almost similar chemical properties and is abundantly available in the earth’s crust.

There is over one thousand times more sodium than lithium in the Earth’s crust.

Thus sodium-ion batteries are considered to be an optimal alternative to lithium-ion. After some research and development, Bluetti has created the world’s first sodium-ion solar generator Bluetti NA300 & B480.

Bluetti NA300 and the B480 retain almost all features available in its predecessor, the EP500 Pro (lithium-ion battery). The sodium-ion power station comes with 4 x 20A plugs and 1 x 30A L14-30 output ports driven by the built-in 3000W pure sine wave inverter that can juice up almost all of your household electronic appliances.

The NA300 further outstrips the EP500 Pro’s incredible 2400W solar input to 3000W.

It is also being cited as the fastest charging solar generator as it goes from 0 to 80% in a short duration of 30 minutes when using 6000W shift AC+PV dual charging (3000W Max for both AC & PV).

However, NA300 provides a capacity of 3000Wh which is lesser than the 5100Wh of EP500 Pro in the same size. This inherent difference is due to the current sodium-ion battery technology limitations.

However, with the research and development underway, we can count on better capacity results for sodium-ion batteries in the near future.

While considering the overall capacity, the NA300 favorably supports 2 x B480 modules (4800Wh each) which brings the total capacity to 12600Wh.

This means the NA300 power unit can supply constant electricity to a family for several days or even up to a week. This is especially useful during grid failures or natural disasters. In addition to this, the NA300 also offers the 240V, 6000W connection with a Fusion Box and another NA300 and it supports IoT App Remote Control by iOS or Android.

In a low-temperature environment of -20-degree Celsius, the sodium-ion battery pack in NA300 and B480 has a capacity retention rate of more than 85% and provides a system integration efficiency of over 80%, which is optimal for power in winter or in regions that experience extremely low temperatures.

Overall, the first-generation sodium-ion battery by Bluetti excels in terms of cost, low-temperature performance, quick-charging, and other electrochemical aspects.

The Bluetti NA300 and B480 Sodium-ion Battery Power station will debut at CES 2022 on the 5th of January. Apart from the sodium battery, you can also expect a range of new products from Bluetti, demonstrating their state-of-the-art technology and alternative power solutions towards a sustainable future.
