BLUETTI’s Black Friday deals are the best time to stock up on portable power

Power, or rather electricity, can be unreliable any time of the year, not just during the winter or stormy months down south — hello, hurricanes. It means the best time to buy a portable power solution for backup or for any kind of power scenario is not when you need it most but beforehand. Plan ahead, and you won’t experience those huge outages. It’s even more important if you’re planning to live off-grid, going exploring, or living your best van life, RV life, or glamping. You’ll need power. End of story.

With BLUETTI offering some great Black Friday deals, plus an exclusive discount, now’s the best time to buy. The discounts are also complemented by a brand new release with the BLUETTI AC200L portable solar generator and power station hitting the market. It features a 2400-watt output, 2,048-watt-hour capacity, and a 1,200-watt solar input for speedy charging. You can boost that to 3,600 watts in PowerLifting whenever needed. More on that new station and the fantastic deals below.

For a limited time, from November 17 until November 30, The Manual readers can use the coupon code Manual100 at checkout to receive an extra $20 off. That code will stack with existing Black Friday deals.

Portable Solar Generator with Solar Panel -- $64, was $81

If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive and low-key power generator, this one from YoboLife also comes with a solar panel to help fill it. It has several 12-volt outlets that you can use, and a couple of USB ones as well, and it can be charged fully with the 12-watt solar panel in about 16 hours. This is a good option for backup or if you need to power something very low-key, and since it comes with four lightbulbs, it's good for general lighting outside where you can't run an electrical line.
