EcoFlow DELTA Mini + 160W Solar Panel
The DELTA Mini + 160W solar panel is the lightest and most portable solar generator among the DELTA Series. It’s the perfect solar generator for powering a small number of devices and appliances for casual container home users.
While the DELTA Mini is compact, don’t let its size fool you. With 882Wh, it will power many essential devices in your home, such as your smartphone, toaster, hairdryer, TV, vacuum, and more.
Despite its compact size, it packs a punch. The DELTA Mini has a power output of 1400 W and can power up to 12 devices simultaneously. The generator comes with an array of outlets, such as USB, AC, and DC outlets, to help you charge various devices anytime.
On the front, a bright and easy-to-read display gives you an overview of the battery’s charge percentage, runtime remaining, incoming and outgoing power, and other metrics.
As with many of the EcoFlow generators, the Mini offers fast charging. X-Stream technology enables the generator to charge three to four times faster than competing products. AC charging recharges the entire unit in just 1.6 hours, or a full charge can be achieved in 3 to 6 hours with one 400W solar panel.

The unique 220W bi-facial solar panel that comes with the DELTA also lets you capture 25% more energy from the sun than standard panels. Instead of only drawing power from the side of the panel directly facing the sun, the backside captures ambient light too.
EcoFlow DELTA Pro + 400W Solar Panel
Container homes are quickly becoming more popular, with cost savings being the main reason first-time homebuyers seek alternatives to costly real estate. With the EcoFlow DELTA Pro + 400W solar panel, you can save even more on utility costs by powering an entire container home with solar.

Featuring 3,600Wh of power, it supports heavy-duty appliances, including air conditioners, dryers, refrigerators, and more. If you pair two units, you can double the power output. With stackable smart batteries, you can expand capacity to 25,000Wh.
The DELTA Pro solar generator uses EcoFlow’s innovative LFP battery technology and guarantees to last at least 6,500 charge cycles before its capacity diminishes to 50%.

While it only has a 256Wh battery capacity, it’s perfect for part-time container home users who only need their generator for occasional use.
One of the best features is the informative display displaying the total run time left, remaining battery life, and current power input and draw. It ensures you’re always informed about the unit’s status, so you can charge it as its battery runs low.
