At the time of writing this in March 2024 the Bluetti AC200L has not yet been released in Australia, however, it appears to compete well with the EcoFlow Delta 2 Max on specs when it comes to maximum solar input and AC charging speed. Until we get our hands on the new model our pick in this capacity range would have to be the EcoFlow Delta 2 Max hands down for its faster charging capability.
