Zendure SolarFlow Hyper 2000 test: design and workmanship

Anyone who already owns another product from Zendure will immediately be able to assign the Hyper 2000 to the lineup of the expert for modern energy solutions. And that’s a good thing. After all, the system is designed to be simply plugged into the manufacturer’s battery storage systems. Zendure relies on a housing made of durable aluminum.

The color mix of black and grey gives the all-in-one system a pleasantly restrained but modern look. The system is also wonderfully compact. Thanks to its dimensions of 350 x 202 x 78 mm, it has a space-saving footprint. The weight of 8.5 kg makes the Hyper 2000 easy to transport. It’s amazing what Zendure can fit in here.

The top of the all-in-one system features an eye-catching striped pattern. This not only looks cool, but should also help to cool the system. These are cooling fins, which are intended to enable the heat generated to be dissipated effectively. A look at the underside reveals the connection for the battery storage.

The inputs are located at the rear. A total of four solar panels can be connected here. You can also connect the Hyper 2000 to your mains supply here. Zendure has developed its own connection here. But don’t worry: the matching counterpart with a suitable 3-meter cable is included in the scope of delivery and makes integration child’s play.

Thanks to IP65 certification, the system offers reliable weather protection. This is underlined by a specified operating temperature of between -20° and 60°C. Despite the extensive protection against water and extreme temperatures, Zendure recommends operating the system in a covered area to be on the safe side.

Zendure SolarFlow Hyper 2000 test: Technology

It is truly amazing what the SolarFlow Hyper 2000 is capable of despite its compact dimensions. A maximum input power of 2,200W is possible here. You can achieve this total output if you connect a total of four solar panels, each with an output of 550W. You can connect up to four Zendure storage units to the Hyper 2000.

Here you have the choice between AB1000 and AB2000. This provides a potential total storage capacity of up to 7,780Wh. If this capacity is not enough for you, you can combine up to three Hyper 2000 models to form a powerful trio. This makes a total of twelve batteries and thus up to 23,340Wh possible.

When using the system, you have the choice between feeding it directly into the power grid (max. 1,200W) or forwarding it to the connected storage unit(s) (max. 1,600W). Alternatively, you can also charge the batteries via your household socket. Up to 1,200W is possible here. To protect the battery cells, you can regulate the input power continuously.

Zendure SolarFlow Hyper 2000 test: setup and commissioning

As mentioned at the beginning, ease of use is playing an increasingly important role in storage solutions for PV systems. And this starts with setting up the system. After all, end customers don’t want to consult an expert every time, they want to do it themselves. The Hyper 2000 makes set-up child’s play – even for non-experts.

zendure solarflow hyper 2000 test

First, you need to place the Hyper 2000 on the storage unit and connect it to it. Then connect the solar panels to the All-in-One system. Now all you have to do is connect the Hyper 2000 to your power socket and it is ready for use. If you are now missing the inverter connection, you will not have to search in vain.

After all, this is already installed in the Hyper 2000 ex works – an all-in-one solution. Once the system has been set up, the next step is to go to the Zendure app. Here you have to add the system as a new one. This is also quick and easy, as the app guides you step by step.

Zendure SolarFlow Hyper 2000 test: Zendure app

The system’s own app scores with a great overview. You can see the most important parameters at a glance on the start page. These include not only charging and solar power. You can also see the amount of energy fed into the power grid. As the Hyper 2000 can also draw energy from your socket, the grid consumption is also displayed.

If you are looking for more details, you will of course also find what you are looking for. Do you want to know how much power each individual solar module is currently generating? Then simply click on the corresponding symbol and you can view the output of each individual panel. As a history of your usage is created in the app, you can also use comparative values.

This is helpful as you can optimize your PV system based on these values. You can really let off steam in the app’s advanced options. Many details about the Hyper 2000 can be adjusted here. One of the most important is certainly the regulation of input and output power. This allows you to specify how many watts should be fed into your home grid and how much should be fed into the storage system.

You can set any wattage of your choice between 30 and 1,200W. But in my opinion, the real highlight of the app is the new intelligent charging mode. This bases the charging strategy on the current electricity prices. This allows you to use self-generated solar power or cheap grid power purchased from the grid and stored in the battery when the electricity price is high.

Conversely, solar power is preferably stored when the electricity price is low. You set the corresponding price limits in the app. Of course, this requires a corresponding electricity tariff. A well-known example of a provider of dynamic electricity tariffs is Tibber. In addition to this mode, there are three others. In the Appointment mode, you can manually set the output power at certain times of the day.

If you use the Smart CT mode, you can use the Hyper 2000 in conjunction with a Shelly smart meter. In this case, the entire power grid of the house is monitored and the output power is regulated on this basis. When used with a smart socket, however, only the consumption of one socket is monitored and used as a basis, rather than the entire power grid.

Zendure SolarFlow Hyper 2000 test: practical experience

After extensively testing the Zendure Hyper 2000, we can give a positive verdict. With a few minor exceptions, the all-in-one system always worked reliably. The minor problems were negligible incidents. For example, there were occasional error messages via the app. In addition, the system did not initially work as we had previously specified in the appointment scheduling mode.

In the end, however, the Hyper 2000 continued to work and started operating on its own. In the test, I particularly liked the uncomplicated use of the system. It was not only the convenient setup and commissioning that made it so easy to use. Operation via the app also quickly becomes second nature. Here you can always keep an eye on everything and make both rudimentary and detailed settings.

This ensures that both amateurs and professionals who like fine-tuning in this area get their money’s worth. At peak times, I was able to generate just under 200W of solar power with the system with my two connected panels. With correspondingly stronger and more panels, there is of course much more possible.

Conclusion

With the Hyper 2000, Zendure has succeeded in creating an outstanding piece of technology in the field of storage systems. And in many respects. First of all, the restrained but modern design should be mentioned. The system is also pleasingly robust and can withstand adverse weather conditions. Thanks to the all-in-one design with integrated inverter, you not only get a tidy look without tangled cables. The system also scores points with its quick and uncomplicated setup, which is no problem even for non-experts. The app operation is also child’s play and clear.

Thanks to the different modes, everyone can choose the operating mode that suits them best. In particular, I think the mode with automatic adjustment to the current electricity price is really great and innovative. I can only really complain about the small problems that the app caused me during the test. However, I just hope that Zendure will do some fine-tuning here. If this is the case, Zendure’s SolarFlow Hyper 2000 should be a system that is more than just a nose ahead of the competition.
