EB3A power lifting

is there any harm done by leaving this mode as default, if used very rarely (kettle–625w)?

Hi @mkbgdns ,
If you use every time is loaded with 600W ~ 1200W pure resistive load, set this mode as the default mode is no problem, will not cause damage to the machine.

thanks for the info. let me clarify–I will very rarely impose load greater than 600w, never above 650w. my question was really, with power lifting mode as default, does extended use (years?) well within normal limit, cause greater stress/wear on machine than leaving “normal” as default? sorry for not being clear. the subtext here is that I don’t have a smart phone, and re-setting default mode involves another, smart-phone-owning person.

Hi @mkbgdns ,
Please do not worry. This is a normal use situation, there will be no more stress or wear on the machine. Please feel free to use it.

Keep in mind, when using power lift, the sine wave is a bit distorted.

Okay for heating elements but I wouldn’t use it on motors or sensitive electronics. Leaving it on default, you may one day forget to reverse the setting and cause damage to items that can be harm by distorted sine wave.

FYI: You will not have the pure sine wave in power lifting mode. This applies also to other brands.

you’ve addressed my precise question, imprecisely posed. so, using my laptop at 20w, my eb3a will be putting out a distorted current in pw mode?

Only when you get close to 600w output does it start distorting the sine wave and lower the voltage output.

thank you for the clarification

True. That the way it work. As long as ur not running other things that may result in distorted sine wave at the same time using sensitive electronic.

Murphy law indicates it can happen too often.

Thank you aly!

Do you know of any reference information that can help us understand the effects of Power lifting on sensitive electronic devices? Any Oscilloscope graphs of the output under different output loads?

I am very concerned that using a Bluetti power station to replace my APC Smart UPS might actually damage devices like ‘smart appliances’ and many ‘computer controlled’ devices that are now becoming prevalent in recently built homes … e.g. forced air furnaces and residential boilers.

I would like to more fully understand the implications before making a purchase decision.
