We have recently seen a proliferation of high-capacity batteries for hunting and camping and as a replacement for gas or propane generators when the power goes out. None, however, have the innovative design of the Runhood Modular Power Station system; its design lets you create the system that’s right for you and then add to it as your needs grow.
We’ve reviewed several EcoFlow products in the past year, and they’ve all met or surpassed expectations. I was recently sent one of the EcoFlow Power Kits to see if it could run my RV camper off the grid. This post will be a walk-through of the product and how it works, and I’ll have another post soon covering my particular installation. Let’s take a look!
We’ve reviewed several of EcoFlow‘s products, and all have exceeded expectations. However, the company makes more than portable power solutions, and they’ve just announced three exciting new products today at CES! On top of the Whole Home Backup Power Solution announced today, EcoFlow is also adding the Glacier, Blade, and Wave 2 to their lineup.
Whether on a long road trip or camping for a long weekend, keeping food fresh is imperative to help save money and make the journey enjoyable. The Bodega R50 Cooler is a 45-liter refrigerator-freezer option packed with features that make it an excellent addition to an RV or vehicle. The R50 runs off of 12v/24v power, so it should be easy to use on the go.
In the last six months, I’ve covered and studied a lot of alternative energy products. BougeRV recently invited me to look at their Yuma 200W CIGS Flexible Solar Panel. This is my first time using a truly flexible thin film solar panel, and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. Is it something that would work for your setup? Read on to find out.
If home is an apartment where the use of open-flame grills is banned on patios and balconies, you can still enjoy cooking outside with the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill. Billed as a portable and compact electric cooker, the Ninja Woodfire’s primary function is grilling; however, it’s also a wood-infused BBQ smoker, air fryer, and outdoor convection oven that can bake, roast, broil, and even dehydrate. If the Ninja Woodfire actually delivers an enjoyable outdoor cooking experience anywhere with electrical power, then I can think of quite a few other uses for it, too. Let’s take a look.
We have reviewed many EcoFlow products here on Gear Diary and have had excellent results with all of them. EcoFlow products are high-level power solutions that, while all great devices, can be priced out of many budgets. Enter the EcoFlow River 2 Series, a trio of cost-effective, reliable power offerings that feature advanced LFP batteries.
The EcoFlow Delta Series is no stranger to Gear Diary, as I love the Delta Max with an extra battery. The recent release of the Delta 2 is a huge step forward in the company’s smart battery lineup by using LiFePO4 technology. With faster charging and a huge AC output, the EcoFlow Delta 2 Portable Power Station is perfect for emergency use or portable power.
We’ve reviewed several power products from EcoFlow, including batteries, solar panels, and a Smart Generator. The company has branched out and added a new device that takes advantage of this portable power to keep you cool. The EcoFlow Wave is a 4,000 BTU portable air conditioner sold with or without an add-on battery; with the battery, it is perfect for keeping a smaller space cool, even when the power is out.
The EcoFlow DELTA 2 is now available for purchase. This new power solution comes with X-Stream technology, which offers charging speeds up to seven times faster than the competition; 0-80% in just 50 minutes from AC input on a battery this large is mind-blowing fast. The LFP batteries will bring ten years of life, and a huge 1800W AC output will run even more of your electronics and appliances, whether you’re going through a power outage at home, spending time in an area that doesn’t have electricity, or just trying to reduce your reliance on the grid.
We recently told you about SoftStartUp, a power management device for RVs. This innovative product doubles as a surge protector while reducing AC startup power demand by up to 50%. SoftStartUP is a game changer for RV and travel trailer owners struggling with power options to run air conditioners and other appliances.
With power grid issues across the country, especially with the extreme summer heat, power consumption and backup are important topics. Today, Geneverse has partnered with HGTV’s Chip Wade to introduce the latest and greatest portable solar technology: The HomePower PRO Series.
We recently reviewed the Anker 757 PowerHouse, a large 1229Wh portable power station. As you can see in the review, it is an amazing product, but it is a heavy power source that might not always be the best option. The Anker 555 PowerHouse brings some amazing specs in a smaller form factor. Let’s take a look.
I have spent some time with several EcoFlow products; my home’s backup power bank revolves around the Delta Max and an add-on battery. We have reviewed the 400W solar panel and have the Smart Generator in for testing. The EcoFlow Smart Generator is a gas generator designed for the Delta ecosystem to charge while saving you time and fuel.
Power management is a problem that plagues RV users, especially regarding the air conditioner and possible power surges. The A/C spike at start-up is often too much for most small generators, and shore power often cannot handle it. SoftStartUp has been developed to prevent this problem while adding a level of protection against power surges. It is plug-and-play and easy to use.
Portable power station technology has come a long way; large-capacity batteries that can keep appliances and vital medical devices running in a power outage are becoming more common and affordable. The VTOMAN Jump 1000 is one such portable power station; it is packed with features and can even jump-start your vehicle! I’ve reviewed quite a few portable power stations, but this is the first I’ve tried that can also help in an automotive emergency.
I have recently reviewed some EcoFlow products perfect for off-grid living or emergencies; you can read those reviews here and here. The company has expanded its product line with the EcoFlow Wave, a portable, battery-powered air conditioner.
Having alternate power sources during uncertain weather is very important, and it’s much easier to manage with today’s high-capacity power stations that don’t require a gas-powered generator and the inherent carbon monoxide risks of running them. Whether dealing with power outages from weather events or rolling blackouts, we will all have to deal with needing a reliable source of backup power at some point. The new Anker 757 Portable Power Station promises to provide portable, long-lasting battery power during outages, emergencies, or outdoor activities.
Living in a region affected by hurricanes and the recent power outages during the snow last season in Texas, backup power is a genuine concern. We also have a travel trailer that we often use without any electric hookups. The EcoFlow DELTA Max is a portable power station offered in up to a 2016Wh capacity capable of powering most of our home appliances and electronics, at least for a time.
Anker has quickly become one of our favorite mobile device accessory companies; several of us use their chargers and other products all of the time. Anker’s announcements for CES include everything from new wall adapters to portable power stations to video conferencing bars and more. Here’s a look at a few that we have to look forward to in the new year.
We’d all like to think that when severe weather hits, we’ll be prepared. We’ll have food, water, and candles ready and waiting with enough notice. But if there isn’t a plan in place for providing emergency power during sustained blackouts, there’s still an important issue that needs to be addressed. Planning ahead and getting a 1100W OUPES Portable Power Station will give you peace of mind; when the power goes out, you’ll be able to keep your essential devices powered. It’s also handy for camping and other off-grid outdoor activities.
