Litheli Eclair BS1000 test: Powerstation with an exciting trick

The power station market has exploded in recent years. Brands such as Jackery, Bluetti and EcoFlow have since taken their place even in the local DIY store. But even apart from the big names, there are always one or two surprises. In today’s Litheli Eclair 1000 test, we want to take a look at a mobile energy storage unit that not only boasts a refreshing new design language. On top of that, the manufacturer has equipped the power station with a really exciting feature that leaves the flagships in the shade when it comes to flexibility.

The manufacturer seems to be unsure about the naming, as the Powerstation goes by the names “Eclair1000”, “B1000” and “BS1000”

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: design and workmanship

At first glance, the Litheli Eclair 1000 impresses with its very futuristic design, which is very different from the usual models. I like this very much, as the look of conventional power stations has slowly become boring and one model looks like another. The combination of black and white is a real classic and really appeals here. The whole thing is rounded off with subtle accents in eye-catching orange.

At the top center is a color display that provides information on the most important status values. This not only includes the battery capacity. You can also easily see things like output and input power here. It also scores points for its high viewing angle stability. There are also USB and DC ports and two power banks on the front, which I will go into in more detail later.

In addition to a wireless charging surface, there are also two carrying handles on the top, which are designed to enable transportation over short distances. The left-hand side not only has a total of four AC outputs. You will also find the inputs for charging the power station under a flap. The right-hand side is quite clean. There are only additional fans here to prevent the Litheli Eclair 1000 from overheating.

The device makes an extremely positive overall impression. This not only applies to the stylish look, which ensures that you don’t need to hide the power station. The build quality is also at a very high level. I would just have liked a few more protective covers for the connections. Only the cigarette lighter and the inputs have suitable protection.

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: The connections

The Litheli Eclair 1000 shines with a very good variety of connections. There are a total of 14 outputs here, so you can certainly connect all your electronic devices. Let’s start with the front.

litheli eclair 1000 test

There are four USB-C ports here (2x 20 watts 2x 100 watts). There are also two USB-A ports, each with 18 watts of power. There are also two DC ports (126 watts) and a cigarette lighter.

The four AC ports are located on the left-hand side, each offering a maximum output of 1,800 watts. Above them are the inputs for charging the power station. In addition to the conventional mains connection, you will also find a solar connection.

There is also a wireless charging surface on the top. Unfortunately, this is not the Qi charging standard, but POGO. So you will only be able to charge selected devices here. However, if you have one, you can look forward to a powerful charging capacity of up to 80 watts.

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: U-Battery Plus for great flexibility

But let’s get to the real highlight of the power station. The two connections on the front right are much more exciting. Two “U-Battery Plus” gadgets are located here in their corresponding inputs. They can be released at the touch of a button.

If you want to charge them again, simply reinsert them. Once removed, the two batteries are reminiscent of a conventional power station. With a capacity of a very good 20,000 mAh, they can also be used as such.

In practice, this should be helpful in many ways. For example, if you take the Powerstation with you on a camping vacation and want to go on a day trip, you can simply take the Powerbanks with you as a practical, handy energy source for your smartphone and other devices.

The U-Battery Plus provides you with 1x USB-C (45 watts) and 1x USB-A (18 watts) as connections. However, these are not intended to be conventional power stations. On top of that, you can also use the two miniature energy storage units as an energy supplier for other Litheli gadgets.

The manufacturer has gardening tools such as a mini chainsaw at the ready. You can also use the U-Battery Plus for a handcart with an electric motor from Litheli. Once the handy power bank is empty, you simply plug it back into the slot of the Litheli Eclair 1000.

It can then be conveniently recharged there. You can easily see the battery status of the U-Battery Plus via the four LED lights on the back of the power banks. A cool concept that I like even better than the removable battery blocks of a Foxtheon iGo 3600(test).

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: Performance

The Litheli Eclair 1000 offers a total battery capacity of 1,069 Wh (including 2x U-Battery Plus). This is more than enough to supply even power-hungry devices with power for several hours. Given the maximum constant output power of 1,800 watts, this is not a problem. Should you ever connect a device with higher power requirements, up to 2,200 watts are possible at peak times. Litheli also offers UPS (uninterruptible power supply).

This means that you get a kind of miniature emergency power supply that automatically takes over for your power supplier in the event of a power failure. The Eclair 1000 offers a response time of a lightning-fast 10 ms. So you won’t even notice that there’s been a power cut. When we talk about performance, we cannot ignore the charging performance. The Litheli Eclair 1000 offers fast charging.

Unfortunately, the charging surface on the top only supports GEräte with the POGO standard

You can charge the power station from 0 to 100% in just 55 minutes with up to 1,200 watts via a household socket. Charging via solar panel is also possible. Here, the Eclair 1000 offers an input power of up to 400 watts. This corresponds to a charging time of approx. three hours under the best conditions. Charging via a car connection takes considerably longer. Here you get an input power of 100 watts, which corresponds to a charging time of just under nine hours.

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: LiFePO4 battery

The modern features and futuristic look also match the battery technology used in the Litheli Eclair 1000. The manufacturer has dispensed with the now obsolete lithium-ion technology and instead uses LiFePO4 batteries. These are not only characterized by greater safety due to a lower risk of fire and explosion. They are also significantly more durable.

And this can also be seen from the manufacturer’s longevity specifications. The power station should be able to withstand 3,000 charging cycles until the maximum battery capacity has dropped to 80%. So if you fully charge the Eclair 1000 every day, you can look forward to a good eight years of constant support until the maximum battery capacity slowly but surely decreases. That’s a great value!

Litheli Eclair 1000 test: Smart features

Last but not least, there are other features of the power station. Firstly, it scores with really cool software. This ensures, for example, that the fan is adjusted to the device temperature. You can also look forward to safety certificates such as UL, BMS Level 12, UL94 and UN38.3.

Here it becomes clear that you can use the Powerstation with a good feeling. The mobile energy storage unit also offers an app connection. You can use your smartphone as a remote control and view the most important parameters of the Litheli Eclair 1000 while on the move.

Conclusion

I liked the Litheli Eclair 1000 at first glance due to its modern and special design. But the inner values are also right. It offers a wide range of connections, allowing you to charge up to 14 devices at the same time. Furthermore, with a constant 1,800 watts, the output power is also right, so that you can operate even power-hungry devices without hesitation. LiFePO4 battery technology and fast charging round off the performance.

litheli eclair 1000 test

But even if the performance values are really strong, in my opinion the Litheli scores particularly well in one discipline: flexibility. And this is due to the U-Battery Plus system. The idea of the two power banks, which can be used as an energy supplier for other Litheli products or as a mini energy storage unit for on the go, is simply fantastic. All in all, the Litheli Eclair 1000 proves that there doesn’t always have to be a big brand behind a great power station.
