6 Tips for Choosing a DELTA series Portable Power Station
EcoFlow DELTA portable power stations come in all shapes and sizes, with plenty of features that give you power for any situation. Before comparing each unit, we’ve provided a simple breakdown of 6 tips to consider when choosing a portable power station. Here’s everything you need to know.
First off on the list, we have capacity. A portable power station with a large capacity gives you power for almost any situation. The larger the capacity, the more runtime you have, meaning you can stay powered for longer. If you’re looking for everyday power for everyday devices, a portable power station with a smaller capacity can get the job done. Or, if you’re in the market for emergency power or home backup during outages, consider getting a portable power station with a big expandable capacity, like the new EcoFlow DELTA Pro.
More output means more power options. Get a portable power station with a high output so you can power your appliances like fridges, dryers, or even power tools. All EcoFlow portable power stations come with X-Boost technology, which extends the output just in case you need to power the heavy-duty stuff.
Nobody wants to lug around a massive battery on road trips, off-grid adventures, or even at home. Portability is a must if you’re looking for a portable power supply that’s easy to transport. Smaller portable power stations like the EcoFlow DELTA mini or the EcoFlow DELTA combine the best of both worlds, giving you a large capacity and a lightweight power supply for power on the go.
When disaster strikes, having a portable power station that charges up quickly makes a world of difference. And even if there isn’t an outage, chances are you don’t want to wait around for half a day to charge up. All EcoFlow portable power stations feature X-Stream fast charging, which lets you safely and rapidly charge up. Newer additions to the EcoFlow DELTA series like the EcoFlow DELTA Pro feature brand-new charging methods like 6500W MultiCharge.
If you’re looking for a renewable power supply to give you more charging convenience, portable power stations with solar charging options are a must. Most battery generators have solar charging integration, but some give you higher solar inputs, so you can charge up faster with clean solar generation.
Whether you call it a portable power station or a solar generator, they are fundamentally battery-powered devices. Another thing to look out for is the battery chemistry and battery management system they use. EcoFlow portable power stations all have a unique battery management system that regulates current, voltage, and temperature in real-time. The type of battery chemistry will depend on the type of application you use your battery for. For example, LFP batteries, such as those found in the new EcoFlow DELTA Pro portable home battery, are designed to give you the most battery life cycles for years. Other DELTA series portable power stations sport NCM batteries, which favour smaller, lighter, and more portable setups.
That covers the most important things to consider when choosing a portable power station. Read on to compare EcoFlow DELTA series portable power stations.
EcoFlow DELTA Pro
Capacity: 3.6-25kWh Expandable Capacity
A huge 3.6-25kWh expandable capacity means you can power your home during extreme blackouts for days on end. A single DELTA Pro unit gives you 3.6kWh of capacity, which you can use for several hours of heavy-duty use. And if that’s not enough, you can expand your capacity up to a huge 25kWh. That’s enough capacity to power you through almost anything.
Output: 3600-7200W Expandable AC Output
With a single DELTA Pro unit, you have access to a 3600W AC output, which expands up to 4500W with X-Boost. This massive AC output is ideal for powering air conditioners, washing machines, and other heavy-duty devices. If you require even more output, you can connect two DELTA Pro units with the EcoFlow Double Voltage Hub. That will give you 7200W, 240V, which is more than enough to power your electric heaters, dryers, and other heavy-duty devices. And it doesn’t stop there either. The EcoFlow DELTA can be connected to your home circuits with the EcoFlow Smart Home Panel, giving you 7200W directly through your home circuits. In other words, that’s all the AC output you’ll ever need.
