Movie Nights, Waffles and More: How BLUETTI’s AC70 Is Changing My Summer Camping Trips


Camping season is coming, and while you might be struggling to book a campsite—seriously, why is reserving a campsite as hard as getting concert tickets?—one thing you shouldn’t struggle with is your gear.

I’m what you might call a ‘comfort camper.’ I love being outdoors, but I also like my luxurious hammock chair, my easy-to-use Coleman stove and my YETI cooler full of cold bevies. I wouldn’t quite call it glamping, because I still sleep in a tent on an inflated air mattress and cook my meals over a camp stove or log-burning fire, but I’m not exactly ‘roughing it’ on most of my spring and summer camping trips. I don’t use a generator—but thanks to a new power station by BLUETTI, my annual camping adventures are getting an energy boost.

Here are five ways I’m planning on using my new BLUETTI AC70 this year:

Movie Nights in the Great Outdoors

Pop the Jiffy Pop and plug in the heated blanket: it’s time to experience cinema under the stars. Bring your laptop or a portable movie projector, and pick through your old DVD collection or download a show.

Whichever device you decide to use, you can power it up with the AC70. The unit can charge your laptop or run a 100-watt projector for nearly five hours—so you can watch the entire extended edition of Lord of the Ring’s The Return of the King.

Hot Delicious Breakfasts

Sorry if you’re hungry reading this—I’m already drooling thinking of all the easy, amazing meals we can make with the help of this power station.

The AC70 can run a 500-watt electric kettle, a 120-watt car fridge and a 500-watt blender, so you have endless options for fresh, yummy meals at the campsite. Coffee, tea, smoothies and breakfast tacos are all on the menu.

As for me? I’m going to plug in my mini-waffle maker for delicious, fluffy, honeycomb waffles in the Great Outdoors.

Epic Vibes, a Super Simple Setup & Fully Charged Devices

Plug in your outdoor patio lights at the campsite for a magical ambience. A string of 30-watt LED bulbs can run all night long on the AC70.

Our squeaky, manual air mattress pump draws irritated glances from other campers, and I don’t blame them—it’s annoyingly slow to blow up. Now, we can simply plug in our electric pump and our bed will be setup in minutes with minimal effort.

You can also take endless photos of your cute camping set-up with a fully-charged camera battery. Phones, drones and smartwatches be recharged multiple times on a weekend camping trip.
