EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max FAQ: Everything You Need to Know

By any metric, EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max is a significant upgrade to the original EcoFlow DELTA Max 1600W and 2000W models.

Not only does it offer a much longer cycle life and warranty, but its lightning-fast recharge times, powerful AC output, and expandability make it the perfect backup solution for your essential home appliances.

The response to the EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max has been outstanding — just check out the customer reviews!

But there are still frequently asked questions that come up again and again.

We’ve compiled a list of answers to the questions we get most often.

How Long Can EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Power My Appliances?

The length of time that EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max can keep your appliances running between charges depends primarily on how many watts each device consumes. It’s essential to determine the combined starting and running watts of the appliances you want EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max to operate simultaneously. Learn how to calculate consumption in kilowatt hours here. Once you’re done, estimate how long you’ll want to run each device during a blackout. For example, if you’re powering a fridge, you’ll likely want to keep it running constantly. With a microwave, however, you’ll probably only need to run it for 30 minutes (combined) or less.

If you’re concerned about not having enough storage capacity, you can always add one or two EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Smart Extra Batteries. Is the AC output not high enough? Consider EcoFlow DELTA Pro Ultra.

Can I Use EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Indoors?

Absolutely! Unlike traditional fossil fuel-burning home backup and standby generators, EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max is whisper quiet and produces zero toxic fumes or greenhouse gas emissions. Its operating noise level is 30 decibels (dB) — literally as loud as a soft whisper and much quieter than a standalone space heater or air conditioner.  

Can the EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Be Used as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)?

Yes. Unlike many other portable power stations and home backup solutions, EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max has a UPS mode that switches over to battery power without interruption during an outage. Other EcoFlow portable power stations, like EcoFlow RIVER 2 Pro, auto-switch quickly — in just 30 milliseconds. However, even an imperceptible pause in current can damage sensitive electronics like desktop computers and hard drives. 

How Does Multi-charging Work for EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max?

One of the most innovative features of EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max is its world-leading multi-charging speed. Connect 2 x EcoFlow 400W portable solar panels, place them in direct sunlight, and plug DELTA 2 Max into any standard household wall socket. The unit will recharge from 0-80% in just 43 minutes. Want to recharge without solar panels or at night? Go from 0-80% charge in 66 minutes.

How Many Solar Panels Can You Connect to EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max?

EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max offers dual solar inputs with independent MPPT technology for a total charging capacity of 1000W. The number of solar panels you can connect depends on the combined rated power of each PV module. For example, you could connect 2 x EcoFlow 400W rigid solar panels and 2 x EcoFlow bifacial portable solar panels. The maximum solar charge EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max can utilize is 1000W. During peak sunlight hours and in ideal conditions, the combined rated output potential of the above configuration is 1240W. However, even highly efficient monocrystalline solar panels rarely produce their maximum rated power for every sunlight hour of the day. The additional production potential will guarantee you reap the maximum benefit of every sun ray.   

Can I Connect 2 x EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Together in Parallel?

No. Connecting 2 x EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max to each other is technically possible, but we strongly discourage you from trying. You could irreparably damage both units — and void your warranty. If you’re after more capacity, you can add up to 2 x EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Smart Extra Batteries for 6kWh of combined storage. With 2.4kW of continuous AC output (3.4kW surge), DELTA 2 Max can start and run 99% of high-wattage home appliances. If that’s not enough juice to meet your needs, consider EcoFlow DELTA Pro (up to 7.2kW) or DELTA Pro Ultra (up to 21.6kW). 

Can You Run EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max and Charge It at the Same Time?

Yes. You can charge EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max via any of the available inputs — or even combine them for multi-charging — and operate the unit at the same time. An example of when this could come in handy would be on a road trip where you can plug EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max into your car charger and then plug laptops, phones, or other devices directly into the unit. That way, you can power multiple devices and recharge your portable power station at the same time. 

Is EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Expandable?

Yes. You can add up to 2 x EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Smart Extra Batteries with 2048Wh of storage capacity each. DELTA 2 Max has 2048Wh of LiFePO4 battery storage capacity straight out of the box. Add 1 x DELTA 2 Max Smart Extra Batteries for 4096Wh (4kWh) or 2 for 6144Wh (6kWh) of total storage. 

How Many Years Will EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Last?

Unlike lead acid, lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry suffers very little degradation over time. However, all currently available rechargeable batteries do diminish in performance with use. One of the primary advantages of LFP batteries — like those found in the current range of EcoFlow portable power stations and solar generators is their industry-leading cycle life. Cycle life is the best indicator of how long a lithium-ion battery — or newer subsets like LFP — will last. Each “cycle” is one full discharge and recharge of the battery. EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max offers 3000 cycles before its capacity is reduced to +/-80%. That’s 6x longer than power stations with comparable capacity and output — enough for about 10 years of daily use. Lead acid and Ni-Cad batteries typically last between 500-1000 cycles. Traditional Li-ion batteries last about 1000-1500. 

Does EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Connect to the EcoFlow App By WiFi or Bluetooth?

Both. You can monitor and control your EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max on your smartphone at home with Bluetooth or from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Setup couldn’t be more painless. Simply connect EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max to your home WiFi network. Want to take home backup control to the next level? Integrate EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max with your home circuit board using a transfer switch. Now that’s complete control!

Can You Connect an EcoFlow DELTA 2 or EcoFlow DELTA Pro Smart Extra Battery to EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max?

No. There is some cross-compatibility between DELTA Series portable power stations and Smart Extra Batteries. For example, EcoFlow DELTA 2 can be expanded with either DELTA 2 Max or DELTA 2 Smart Extra Batteries. You can pair an original EcoFlow DELTA Max battery with the DELTA 2 Max. However, the earlier generation uses Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery chemistry. EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Smart Extra Batteries will last almost 4x longer — and charge much faster too.
