EcoFlow is a manufacturer of portable solar power stations, and I looked at the superb EcoFlow River Max earlier in the year. Now EcoFlow has announced the EcoFlow DELTA 2 1Kw. This new power station utilises the latest technology that enables a full charge in just 1.3 hours; not only this, but the station is capable of powering 90% of household applications and devices, in reality, this means it well suit many photographers and videographers working on-site.
The new power station has looked at one of the biggest technical issues surrounding these compact energy supplies. That issue is charging times, and here EcoFlow has boosted the top-up technology to ensure faster-than-ever re-charge times. EcoFlow has also made the new DELTA 2 fully compatible with expandable battery modules up to 3kWh, an essential that will boost usability for image creators.
The EcoFlow Delta 2 stands out in an ever-increasing market with a 1800w AC output that’s more than enough to run a small production including; lighting, cameras, workstation, and everything bar the kettle or at least the one we’re using at present.
“Building on the success of our original DELTA Portable Power Station, the EcoFlow DELTA 2 demonstrates our commitment to refining our existing technologies,” said Bruce Wang, CEO of EcoFlow. “A re-charging speed seven times faster than the industry average, up to 3KWh of expandable capacity, and a powerful output mean the DELTA 2 is an essential, modern-day appliance for all families. Whether used at home, outdoors, or on the go, the DELTA 2 sets a new benchmark in eco-friendly power solutions.”
Expandable batteries are nothing new, but it is for a system of this size and is worth considering. Adding one of the DELTA Max batteries lets you quickly expand the power to 2048Wh or 3040Wh. This not only gives you more power when away from the Studio but also enables you to adapt the kit you take and the weight depending on your day’s needs.
Best-In-Class Re-charging Speeds
Waiting for your power station to charge can be lengthy, but EcoFlow has addressed this with the latest release. Utilising X-Stream technology enables ultra-fast charging. Using maximum charging input, the Delta 2 will charge from 0-80% in just 50 minutes and achieve a full charge in 80 minutes.
Go Green with DELTA 2 Solar Generators
Alongside the power station are the EcoFlow solar panels. These can be used to fully charge the DELTA 2 with a maximum solar input of 500W. Utilising Solar rather than AC for the charge re-charge times are still good at three to six hours using two 220W or one 400w portable solar panel.
Safe Power Supply for 90% of Appliances
One of the biggest issues with any power station is the maximum W output, with every device plugged in drawing more power. Thankfully the DELTA 2 has a decent 1800W AC output which is more than enough to run the most camera and video gear.
Give an example of two standard 4K monitor’s MacBook Pro and HD will take between 400 – 500W; add in three-point source lights and cameras, and you’ll still have a little headroom for that 1800W. If you tip the balance and plugin one device too many, the X-Boost technology will kick in, preventing battery overload for appliances up to 2400w.
At the heart of the new EcoFlow DELTA, 2 is the LFP battery; this is the same type they use in Tesla vehicles and boasts a lifetime six times greater than the industry average at 500 cycles. As a result, this power station has the potential to be re-charged 3,000 times over its lifetime.
An advanced BMS (Battery Management System) protection system is included to ensure high-quality battery integrity, which monitors the performance to ensure safe power delivery. The battery also ships with an exclusive five-year guarantee.
The EcoFlow DELTA 2 will retail for €1,199 (£1,099) and be available on EcoFlow websites on September 16.
