The Bluetti AC60 takes portable power stations to another level for photographers and videographers looking for a power solution. The capacity as standard isn’t huge, so should be looked at as a way to boost charge in batteries rather than a main power source, although used with the ANOVA Pro 2 lights, it does a decent job and will supply a couple of hours’ use at full power to two units.
The output is also limited at just 400W, an amount that can easily be consumed if you’re running cameras, lights, and laptops at the same time. However, to keep things ticking over on site, this capacity is very useful. The size is also easy and versatile with plenty of plugs and sockets for all your power needs.
What really makes the Bluetti AC60 standout is the fact that it’s expandable, and this makes it really interesting to photographers and videographers. As a base, the 400W isn’t a great deal, but partner that with the Bluetti B80 with its 800W capacity and you see a system that takes a bit of a boost, and what’s more, you can add two, giving you a total of 2KW, but in a smaller, much lighter, and more manageable form than the AC200.
Feature-wise the expansion is a big feature, but, really the biggest feature for photographers and videographers is that it’s weather-resistant. That means that when it starts to rain, you don’t have to worry about covering the battery at any speed, it’s designed to withstand moisture, rain, and more, which would make it a great companion for the new Rotolight ANOVA Pro 3’s.
