Victoria Day long weekend in Canada is also known as ‘May two-four’ for the propensity of celebrants to toast the occasion with 24 bottles of beer, or a ‘two-four’. Drinking cold beverages aside, the weekend is a holiday with a rich history and tradition and since it officially celebrates the former queen Victoria’s birthday across the British empire. Here in Canada, we typically use this long weekend as an excuse to get outdoors; camping, RVing, boating at the lake, or just hanging out in the backyard. What better reason than Victoria Day long weekend to take a look at some helpful power options you can take with you to continue enjoying music, powering your smartphone and even playing movies under the stars—wherever you are?
Best portable power for the long weekend
What do we need for a great long weekend? Definitely a Bluetooth speaker. What happens when it runs out of juice?
Most Bluetooth speakers today offer up to 24 hours of battery life. If you’re going to have tunes playing all long weekend long, at some point you’re going to need to recharge. That’s where a device like BLUETTI EB3A (see our review) is perfect for powering small appliances and electronics, and we’d like to say thanks to BLUETTI for sponsoring this post, as their support helps us keep the blog running. BLUETTI EB3A is perfect for keeping the kids’ phones charged and small music speakers running.
Need more power for bigger and better appliances or fun camping gadgets? Consider upgrading to the BLUETTI EB55portable power station + PV200 solar panels. This compact and lightweight bluetti Power Station, perfect to use in a campervan, or on a camping trip since it can recharge more power-hungry devices like cameras and lights, a fan or swamp cooler, even a single-serve blender for smoothies and margaritas!
With capacity of 537Wh and built-in 700W (surge 1400W) plus a strong inverter, EB55 could run most of your essential outdoor appliances and electronics such as mobile phones, plus even mini freezers, radios, projectors and more. Build even more backup power by adding the PV200 solar panels for anytime charging!
How to enjoy off-grid without the worry
If you take longer trips or you need a better backup power solution for an off grid cabin, cottage or camp, the BLUETTI EB70S can manage all your needs.
An astounding 12 output ports let you charge different devices at once, while a super handy 15-watt wireless charging pad at the top makes keeping your cellphone selfie-ready a breeze. From mini-refrigerators to LED lights, this bluetti power station is a great storage option for camping—and even emergency use.
Not being tied into the grid can force you to relax and enjoy a few days without hustle and bustle. But just because you aren’t connected to local power doesn’t mean you have to go without. Using a power station or portable generator is a great way to ensure kitchen appliances, e-readers, and more fun devices that can make the long weekend enjoyable are always ready to play.
Need still more power? Whether you’re at home in the city during an unexpected power outage, on a jobsite or even camping in the woods you’ll have the best and most reliable power from the BLUETTI portable powerstation – AC200P. This workhorse can power smaller items like a coffee maker, but it can even keep an air conditioner running for 90 minutes! Or ensure a CPAP machine stays on for up to 40 hours by plugging it into the AC200P. Your BLUETTI experience goes well beyond one weekend too: The Lithium Iron Phosphate(LiFePO₄) battery offers 3,500+ life cycles and is designed to last for almost a decade.
Why get portable power?
Sometimes we can forget how quickly gadgets and devices can lose their charge when a recharging solution isn’t close at hand. For example, while there’s always an AC plug nearby in your home, if you’re on a prairie road trip with the family, traversing eastern Canada in a campervan, or heading off to a remote cabin or cottage somewhere in the Shuswap, unlimited power is no longer an option. Plus when you realize everyone in the family might want to use that single power adaptor in the front of the car, you’ll quickly realize there’s just no way you’re going to keep all your gadgets and toys full, all three-day-weekend long.
That’s where having a large bluetti portable power station or portable AC or solar generator can truly help. The only thing better is getting it on sale!
