I was wondering high Watt usage of my AC connected devices. Therefore I bought some measurement devices which i put between bluetti AC300 and my consumer device.
Now i think i found out this:
Output is apparent power and not effective Power.
I did not found any documentation about this (it was strange that my Devices needed 100W instead of 40W which I was expecting.
Here output of Bluetty App:
Costmeter of Voltcraft:
While your app says 85W it is only 43W - but an apparent power of 81VA
Am I right and your app / station shows only “apparent power” which should be shown in VA (volt ampere) instead of W (watts)?
I guess the same for Input and DC?
