Last week at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Anker SOLIX unleashed their next portable and home power solutions with the Anker SOLIX C1000 and Anker SOLIX F3800 power stations. The brand aims to redefine what it means to be energy independent in the modern age. Shaun Xiong, the General Manager of Anker and Anker SOLIX, highlighted the company’s vision for a “sustainable future” where consumers are not just provided with high-tech outdoor power solutions, but also reliable home backup options. Let’s delve into what each of these robust devices has to offer.
Anker SOLIX C1000: A New Paradigm in Efficiency and Longevity
Lightning-Fast Recharge with HyperFlash
If you’re tired of waiting around for your power station to recharge, the SOLIX C1000 might just change your life. Equipped with HyperFlash technology, this unit can fully recharge in a staggering 58 minutes when connected to a wall outlet with a 1300W input power. And if you’re out and about? Slap on some solar panels with up to 600W output and you’re looking at a full recharge in just 1.8 hours.
Built to Last with InfiniPower
One of the most impressive features of the C1000 is its InfiniPower technology. Coupled with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, the power station boasts a lifespan of up to 3,000 charging cycles. Add to that the C1000’s ultra-durable electronic components, smart temperature control system, and an impact-resistant structural exterior, and you’ve got a device built to serve you for over a decade.
Ultra-Compact Design with Mega Power
Despite its robust capabilities, the C1000 is 15% smaller than its competitors with the same 1kWh capacity. The compact, stackable design doesn’t just make it more portable; it also ensures efficient heat dissipation, ideal for both outdoor adventurers and professional settings.
Consistent, Uninterrupted Power
If you’re wondering just how much this compact beast can handle, it has a base capacity of 1056Wh that can be expanded to 2112Wh with the BP1000 Expansion battery. With a 2400W AC output via SurgePad, it promises to keep a wide array of appliances running smoothly, from laptops to CPAP machines, and even mini-fridges during blackouts.
- 6x AC outlets
- 2x USB C ports (100W and 30W)
- 2x USB A ports (20W each)
- 1x Carport (120W)
- Dimensions/Weight: 376x205x267mm – 12.9 kg
Anker SOLIX F3800: The Apex of Home Power Solutions
Seamless Integration with Home Power Systems
The F3800 is not just another power station; it’s a comprehensive home power solution. Featuring AC coupling and supporting home solar power cycling, this unit interfaces seamlessly with the Anker SOLIX Home Power Panel to provide an integrated home power cycle.
High-Energy Output and Dual Voltage
Don’t underestimate the F3800’s power capabilities. With a 6,000W AC output and a 120V/240V dual voltage feature, it can effortlessly power high-energy devices like washing machines and full-size refrigerators. An optional transfer switch ensures your home stays powered even when the grid is down.
Customisable, Expandable Energy Storage
The F3800 comes with an internal battery capacity of 3.84kWh. However, if you need more, its expandable design allows you to add up to six additional batteries, achieving a staggering 26.88kWh.
Portable and Versatile
Designed for ultimate flexibility, the F3800 comes with a “suitcase design” that includes a retractable handle and large wheels, ideal for both home and on-the-road usage. Electric vehicle owners can connect directly to the F3800 at 6000W/240V, providing a charging capacity of up to 140km with six expansion batteries.
Pricing and Availability
The Anker SOLIX C1000 is now available for pre-order at $999 with a 25% early-bird discount. The Anker SOLIX F3800 will start shipping in Q1 2024.
Anker SOLIX’s new offerings make it abundantly clear that the brand isn’t just keeping pace with the demands of modern-day energy independence; it’s setting the standard. Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast, a homeowner seeking a robust backup power solution, or a professional needing reliable energy on-the-go, the C1000 and F3800 are built to deliver—reliably, efficiently, and sustainably.
