Ecoflow launches two new Portable Power Supplies

When camping and overlanding, power is always an issue. I have always been a big fan of Portable Power Supplies (PPS) as they just make sense for me when I venture into the great outdoors. Allow me to explain why.

You need to be able to keep various appliances running – from fridges and fans to luxuries such as hairdryers and coffee makers – but to power all of these appliances you need loads of power, and the cost is sometimes ridiculous. If you crunch the numbers, you soon realise that you are looking at anything from R25 000 or more depending on the brands you install.

So, let’s do the math for a 2 000W-capacity dual battery system.

  • Battery 12v 200A Lithium             R8 000.00
  • DC-DC charger                            R6 000.00
  • 2000W pure Sine Wave invertor   R8 000.00
  • Cabling, plugs and installation       R3 000.00

That’s a lot of money in anyone’s books… and it’s ‘stuck’ in your vehicle!

So why not rather opt for a portable power solution? At least when you get home you can pop it next to your couch and it can power your TV and Wi-Fi when there is loadshedding. Of course, another great advantage is the weight and the space you save!

EcoFlow is a leading eco-friendly energy solutions company and has just launched the RIVER 2 Pro and DELTA 2 Max in South Africa. Featuring an upgraded capacity and faster charging, the RIVER 2 Pro is the best portable power station for keep your fridge running when camping and ideal for a power solution at home during loadshedding. DELTA 2 Max has a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) transfer time of 20ms and a capacity of 2 048Wh, making it an ideal power ally for whole-home comfort.

RIVER 2 Pro – Charge faster and power more efficiently

The EcoFlow RIVER 2 Pro boasts a capacity of 768Wh. Thanks to EcoFlow’s X-Stream technology, it can be fully recharged via AC charging in just 70 minutes, 70 percent faster than the industry average! With a maximum AC output of 800W it can run devices of up to 1600W. It is sufficient for 80 percent of heavy-duty appliances such as, hairdryers, microwaves, and electric kettles, covering almost all the daily essentials in a household.

The RIVER 2 Pro is able to provide emergency power supply (EPS). In case of a sudden blackout, it can automatically switch to the battery-powered supply mode within 30ms. When unexpected power outages happen, it can almost instantly become a reliable energy source, preventing disruptions in consumers’ daily activities or work.

Equipped with advanced LiFePO4 (LFP) batteries that can operate under extreme temperatures, the RIVER 2 Pro possesses a lifespan of 3 000 cycles, six times longer than the industry average of 500 cycles. In addition, the RIVER 2 Pro comes with an industry-leading five-year warranty, a testament to EcoFlow’s confidence in its product’s durability and futuristic technology.

DELTA 2 Max – Power ally for whole-home comfort

The EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max supports 20ms auto-switch to UPS mode when unexpected power cuts hit, acting like an invisible lifeline. With a base capacity of 2 048Wh, which can be expanded up to 6 144Wh with two extra batteries, users can customise their energy solutions based on their specific energy needs.

Also featuring EcoFlow’s patented X-Stream technology, the DELTA 2 Max boasts industry-leading fast charging speeds. With an AC input of 2 300W and a maximum solar input of 1 000W, it can be charged by AC from 0-100 percent in 81 minutes, or by solar 2.3 hours. With AC and solar duel charging it can be charged from 0-80 percent in only 43 minutes – making it the ideal portable power station for life’s unplanned moments.

The DELTA 2 Max is equipped with a 2 400W AC output that can power almost all essential home appliances. Even while charging, it can still power up to 13 devices simultaneously. With the X-Boost technology, it can even power some appliances up to 3 100W.

In the face of potential severe power outages such as stage 13 loadshedding, the DELTA 2 Max can serve as a powerful and reliable energy partner to help people live worry-free and enjoy the same level of comfort at home.
