In view of rising energy prices, power stations are becoming more and more popular. Especially versions where you can charge the battery solely by solar energy thanks to a separate solar panel are currently finding their way onto the market more and more often. In this regard, we have just recently reported the release of the Jackery Solar Generator 1000 Pro. Now EcoFlow is also launching a new power station that can be charged either with solar energy or classically via a mains connection. Thereby the EcoFlow Delta 2 is to be characterised above all by its long life span.
Large-size power bank
The new EcoFlow Delta 2 comes with a huge battery. According to the manufacturer, this should be able to provide a maximum of 1,024 watt hours of storage space. This makes it a really large power station, which is especially suitable for camping trips or outdoor adventures. If that is not enough, you can add more memory modules for a total of 3,000 watt hours. On top of that, the large battery capacity means that you can easily get through the weekend if you need an emergency power supply in your own four walls. The design of the upcoming power station is reminiscent of the Ecoflow Delta Pro, which already convinced us in our test.
But the EcoFlow Delta 2 is strictly speaking the Delta’s immediate successor. Compared to its predecessor, some things are said to have changed, according to the manufacturer. The modern LiFePO4 batteries should not only convince with a long lifetime. On top of that, they can be recharged very quickly. The information that the Chinese company gives about the charging time sounds almost too good to be true. The battery of the EcoFlow Delta 2 is supposed to be filled from 0 to 80 percent after just 50 minutes. If you want to fully charge the power station, you’ll have to put up with just 80 minutes. Given the large battery, that’s really short.
Solar energy costs nothing
Products like the EcoFlow Delta 2 can not only supply your most important electrical devices with the necessary power during a camping trip. Since it can be charged via solar panels on top of that, you get the power for free, so to speak. In view of rising electricity prices, this should be a big selling point for many people. Of course, a complete battery charge via the panels takes longer than via the power connection.
EcoFlow talks about needing just under three hours with the help of solar power – in perfect sunlight, at least. The panels themselves can be arranged in different setups. On the one hand, you can use one large panel. This then offers 400 watts of power. More power is available when you connect two panels. These offer a total of 440 watts of input power with 220 watts each. But the whole thing also has its limits. Thus, the EcoFlow Delta 2 supports a maximum input power (solar energy) of 500 watts.
Price and availability
September 16 is the date. Then the EcoFlow Delta 2 is to come into the trade. According to the manufacturer, the MSRP should be 1,199 euros. Anyone interested had better be quick. In view of the current rush for various ways to generate energy through solar power, this power station is also likely to sell out quickly.
