I see that the b230 comes with a cable that stores into the lid....but where does it connect into the ac200 Original?I'll be posting my bluetti ac200max video on August 20th
B230 connects with the expansion cables. They are easy to use.
I'll have a lot to say about this model. I've tested it for a long time now.
According to HOBOTECH review, the exapansion battery packs can be charged by the main unit, so I wonder if HOBOTECH has the newer version of the unit, see video @ 19:00 mark.I have watched Will's review of the AC200 Max and while I understand his concern about charging the expansion battery, (who wants to have a bunch of unsightly adapters and cables cluttering up the place) what he sees as a downside, I personally see it as an advantage. I an really pleased with the fact that I can add the expansion battery to the my current AC200 and charge it with a separate set of solar panels. I'm still a bit fuzzy on how the expansion battery interfaces with the AC200 though.
Are they not selling the b230 as a stand alone? Seems it's only part of a combo
Due to the limited early stock and high demand for the AC200MAX + B230 combo, we've made the decision that the B230 battery module will NOT be available to be purchased separately until early September (only for the AC200MAX combo in the debut sale). The $1199 special offers for B230 will be still available in Sept, and the detailed review videos by Hobotech and Will Prowse will be published before our pre-order launch.
