Safer and lighter solid-state batteries are the next big thing in global battery technology, and as far as we know, they are capable of replacing lithium batteries. At CES 2023, Yoshino emerged with a series of impressive solid-state (SST) solar power stations that integrate the brand’s innovative solid-state battery packs.
The Yoshino portable solid-state batteries unveiled at CES are the B330, B660, B2000, and B4000, which range from 241Wh to 2611Wh in storage capacity and 330W to 4000W in inverter power.
Of course, the SST technology is the main attraction of Yoshino’s brand-new line of solar power stations, which are indeed lighter, safer, and greener compared to their lithium alternatives from other brands like Bluetti, EcoFlow, and Jackery.
Interestingly, the top-tier variants of the Yoshino power stations – B2000 and B4000 – feature UPS to provide emergency power for your home, and the B4000 even features Smart Link Tech to expand the storage capacity, and it also integrates a 30A RV outlet for RV use.
|Yoshino SST Power Stations Price and Release Date Update: Yoshino has confirmed to us that the brand is looking to start selling the models in May 2023. The price of the lineup is to range from $349 to $3200 for the B330 to the B4000.|

Yoshino B4000 SST Solar Power Station
This is the top-end variant of Yoshino’s family of SST solar power stations. It comes with a 2611Wh battery pack and an inverter of 4000 watts, and it can surge at 6000 watts.
Thanks to the new SST battery, the 2611Wh battery pack weighs just 55 lbs, while the 2048Wh Bluetti AC200 Max weighs 61.9 lbs and the 3600Wh EcoFlow Delta Pro weighs 99 lbs.
You can charge the power station at a rate of 1800 watts on an AC wall socket to fully charge it in around 1.5 hours, while the solar charging option is a bit slower at 600 watts, which will take up to six hours for a full charge.
The notable thing is that it features a UPS function and a 30A RV port different from its younger siblings in the family. The charging cycles expected are 2500 times up to 80% capacity.
Yoshino B2000 SST Solar Power Station
This is a 1326Wh SST power station in the Yoshino SST series. It comes with an inverter of 2000 watts, and it can surge at 3500 watts.
The AC charging input is 1500 watts, which can charge the device in 55 minutes. With a 600W maximum solar input, you can recharge it fully in three hours under a bright sun.
The B2000 has a weight of just 29.8 lbs, which makes it the most lightweight mid-range power station out there.
This model can be a brilliant alternative to EcoFlow’s Delta and Delta 2 power stations, with better output and storage capacity, apart from a lightweight and handy design.
Yoshino B660 SST Solar Power Station
This is the compact solid-state solar power station from Yoshino.
With a battery pack of 602Wh and an inverter of 660 watts (1000 watts) surge, the B660 SST can be a great competitor to EcoFlow’s River series and Bluetti’s EB70 lithium power stations.
It can be charged fully from an AC socket in five hours and from a solar input of 100 watts in around eight hours. The device has a size of 11.7 x 8 x 10 inches and weighs just 16.5 lbs.
Yoshino B330 SST Solar Power Station
Finally, we have the base model of the Yoshino SST family. The B330 is a 330W power station with a 241Wh solid-state battery pack.
It can be fully charged in 2.5 hours on an AC socket and 3.5 hours on solar input, as it supports 100 watts.
The device has a size of 10 x 6.1 x 9.5 inches and weighs just 10 lbs, making it a perfect entry-level solar power station compared to the EcoFlow River Mini and Bluetti EB3A and EB55.
That has been our take on the brand-new Yoshino portable solid-state batteries. The brand has put these models on display at CES. The brand is reportedly going to start selling these models sooner. The prices and release date of the Yoshino SST solar power stations are yet to be announced.
Of course, these models are going to pose a critical threat to big brands like EcoFlow, Bluetti, and Jackery with their SST batteries. The entire portable solar power station market will undergo a disruption if these models are on sale at some competitive prices to their lithium alternatives.
