Oukitel P2001 Review – It Has a UPS Mode Too
In this article, I have given my honest Oukitel P2001 review based on load test, performance, charging speed, UPS test, performance in the RV, durability, design, and outlets.
Oukitel P2001 Quick Review
Detailed Oukitel P2001 Review
BEST FOR: Oukitel P2001is best for home backup, and it is ideal for travel trailers and RVs.
When the smartphone maker Oukitel’s R&D team started making the first generator portable power stations, people were skeptical, but their P2001 model crossed all the boundaries with its 2000Wh capacity, 2000 rated watts, LIFEPO4 composition, 16 different outlets, super advanced BMS, and UPS mode.
I got my hands on this bad boy 5 months ago, and I have put it through hell. I have been running all sorts of things on this unit and using it in different locations and in extreme weather, I will share my experience in this Oukitel P2001 Review.
Design of Oukitel P2001:
So Oukitel P2001 is covered with a durable plastic body and it weighs around 22 kilograms which is not that heavy considering how much it is offering along with a dedicated UPS.
Two metal handles are built into the frame. I would’ve loved a retractable handle and wheels as well. Four rubber feet at the bottom prevent the unit from slipping and scratching the surface it is sitting on.
There is a handy compartment at the top which is used as storage for cables.
So overall, it is not a lightweight model, but it is not too heavy as well.
One of the main selling points of this little bad boy is the 16 different outlets.
|Ports & Outlets||Voltage & Wattages|
|x6 AC ports||2000W total. 110V. 60Hz|
|x2 USB-A||5V 2.5A|
|x2 USB-C||5 – 20V/5.0A, 100W|
|x1 XT60||12V, 10A|
|x1 cigar lighter||12V, 10A|
|x2 outputs||12V 3A|
Charging of Oukitel P2001:
There 4 options for charging Oukitel P2001. It can receive 1100W of AC input which they call it supercharging feature. It has two charging ports, an AC port that can accept a maximum of 1100W, and two Anderson power pole ports (Each of 500W).
The device only takes 1 hour and 56 minutes to charge up to 100% using supercharge feature. Another great thing about AC charging is that you don’t need an external charging brick, it is built into AC charging port so you only have to worry about the cable that fits on the storage at the top.
It accepts around 500W of solar input which will take close to 4 hours to completely charge which is a standard.
Checkout out our latest review of solar power generators.
Anderson power pole input jack can support 12 to 48V and 15A which is perfect for so many different charging methods.
If the 1100W of AC wasn’t fast enough, it accepts dual charging as well.
Using 260W from the Anderson power pole jack, and 1100W of AC input, I was surprised that the device was fully charged in no time.
It can accept as high as 1600W of dual input but I won’t recommend doing it regularly because it puts extra pressure on the batteries.
Generator and Car Charging:
It also accepts 1100W input from a power generator. I always take an inverter generator with me in my RV wherever I go so I tested the charging from the inverter generator as well.
It took around 1.8 hours to fully charge.
Oukitel P2001 can accept up to 240W 12V 10A of input from the car outlet which is not normal for most power stations in this category.
Oukitel P2001 is rated at 2000 continuous watts. I connected my 1500-watt heater and two heat lamps of 250W each. I was able to pull 1977 watts.
After 15 minutes, it was sitting at 110.8V, and 1944 continuous watts. No issues at all.
I was able to pull 2220 continuous watts before the inverter shut off due to overload. Oukitel is solid.
During AC inverter tests, this portable power station was able to put around 110V AC without any voltage drop during the testing. It has a pure sine wave inverter. The AC inverter efficiency is around 80%.
Oukitel P2001will be able to run the following appliances based on my tests.
|Appliance||Watts or Watt-hours||Time or Charges|
|Coffee maker||600||109 CUPS|
|Hair dryer||1600||1.5 to 4.9 hours|
|Fridge||150W||10 to 24 hours|
|TV||110W||15 to 29 hours|
|EV (TESLA)||Tesla||8.5 miles|
|Electric drill||800||2.4 hours|
|Electric saw||1600||1.2 to 4.9 hours|
Performance of Oukitel P2001:
After my tests and usage, the things I found in this Oukitel P2001 Review are that it charges up in 2 hours, you can charge and use it at the same time, it has a pure sine wave output, it has a 13.3V regulated DC output, it has an awesome display, and it has 2 USB-C power delivery outputs.
It has a UPS model to serve as an uninterrupted power supply. Its working is simple. When you connect it to the wall, it will pass the power straight through it while not touching the batteries.
The DC outlets and AC outlets have ON/OFF switches. So if you want to switch to a DC outlet, press the button and you are good to go.
The LCD like Ecoflow Delta 1300 shows minutes and hours on the screen which is a big plus. It also shows accurate battery stats, input and outgoing power, and other important information.
It is equipped with a LifePO4 battery that guarantees 3000+ lifecycles if you don’t drain it regularly.
To get the maximum cycles out of LifePO4 batteries, don’t drain it less than 15 to 20% and don’t charge it more than 80 to 85%.
Compared to the competition, Oukitel P2001 is rated at 51V whereas its nearest competitor Jackery Explorer 1500 is rated 24V. 51V will allow the user to run most devices at once.
Bluetti AC200P is its direct competitor. Both are rated at 2000 continuous watts and 2000Wh capacity. The only differences are the additional UPS model in Oukitel P2001 and the quality BMS which Bluetti lacks.
The problem I see is the DC outputs automatically shut off when you have a load of 2W or less. The time remaining on the LCD is also not accurate. I have confirmed it.
It is the first power station with a UPS mode that I have tested. Whenever you plug it into the wall, it will pull power straight from the wall bypassing the batteries up to 1100W. When you remove the power, it swaps back to batteries in milliseconds.
I tested that theory by plugging a heater into it. Oukitel P2001 was bypassing the batteries which were delivering the power to the heater.
When I unplugged the AC power from the wall, it switched back to 110V in milliseconds and the heater bogged down a bit because the power from the wall was flowing at 120V.
This thing has a true UPS.
