It’s an incredibly versatile power solution, for outdoor enthusiasts, DIY lovers, and, of course, disaster preparedness. By grabbing one of these high-capacity power stations — with solar panel support — you’ll have plenty of emergency power to care for your family. Just $2,099 gets you this home backup power solution that packs a 2kWh capacity and can be expanded up to 6kWh by adding DELTA Max Smart Extra Batteries. Check it out, and read more, below!

What is the EcoFlow DELTA Max power station?

Similar to EcoFlow’s DELTA Pro portable home battery, the DELTA Max power station offers a host of power delivery options. For starters, its large 2016Wh capacity is welcome, and it can be expanded up to 6048Wh with DELTA Max Smart Extra Batteries. You also get 3600W dual fast charging support for the DELTA Max plus one DELTA Max Smart Extra Battery — when they’re connected to a Smart Generator and an AC outlet. The industry-leading 3400W X-boost technology allows you to power up to 99% of appliances like a fridge, dryer, and more. That way, you can keep on living normally if and when your power goes out.

What’s really interesting is how this power station can be charged between uses. It can be converted into a near unlimited power supply using solar energy, after equipping EcoFlow Solar Panels. A voltage range of 11-100V, alongside an MC4 connector, means you can connect other solar panels to the unit, as well. What’s more, pairing it with other EcoFlow devices extends functionality, like the EcoFlow Smart Generator. Together, the Smart Generator and DELTA Max create a more convenient emergency backup power system because when the power of the DELTA Max reaches 20% or lower, the generator will auto-start. The threshold can also be adjusted according to customer’s needs from within the EcoFlow app — for example, if you wanted it to kick on at 40% or lower, instead. After it’s fully charged — or whatever limit the customer specifies within the EcoFlow app — the Smart Generator will shut down, conserving energy.

While the most recent launch was the EcoFlow DELTA Max, the company will also be releasing a smaller scale unit in Q4 of 2021, called the EcoFlow DELTA Max (1600). It has a smaller base capacity of 1612Wh, which can be expanded up to 5644Wh after being paired with 2 of EcoFlow’s Smart Extra Batteries. Whichever model suits you best, you’ll be able to “unleash your capacity,” especially when paired up with additional EcoFlow power systems.

What are some other cool ways to use the EcoFlow DELTA Max?

The obvious example of the EcoFlow DELTA Max is to use it as a backup power solution during an emergency or extended blackout. But it’s also incredibly useful for other applications, like camping, road trips, home DIY projects, and even live or public events.

Professionals can use the power station out in the field for tools, equipment, and other gear. Live event professionals can use the DELTA Max to power lighting, speakers, and other entertainment equipment. It’s even small enough to fit in an RV, trailer, van, jeep, boat, yacht, or cabin. Since it’s noiseless, it won’t make as much of a ruckus as a traditional generator either.

If you grab some of EcoFlow’s Solar Panels and Smart Extra Batteries, you can extend support considerably — drawing from natural solar energy to keep it charged and ready to go, plus extending its total capacity.

Bluetti’s AC300 and B300 Combo Provides True Power Versatility and Reliability
Bluetti AC300 portable power station supplying power to desktop during outage.

When it comes to preparing for power-related events, like outages, situations where you might need portable power options, and general usage, you really need some flexible and versatile solutions at your disposal. The more manageable the gear, the more opportunities you have to adapt to current events. For example, let's say your power goes out for a few days to a week. Having a portable power solution will certainly help, but also one that can be recharged via solar energy, reliably, with just a panel or two, will significantly improve your quality of life during that period. Even if the power doesn't come back on in time, you can recharge the station to keep fueling your modern living needs. It doesn't just stop there. Yes, it's great to have backup options in a time of need, but it's also great to just have a handy solution for whatever arises. Maybe you need to power your tools to do some work in the backyard or a workshop, but don't want to run an extension cord? Boom, the portable power solution will help. What if you have a music gig coming up in a remote park or location but need to power your instruments, microphone, and lighting? Cue the portable power solution. There are a lot of different scenarios where having a power device can change the game.

That's precisely what Bluetti is offering with its AC300 and B300 expansion batteries, which offer 3,072 watt-hours of power per battery. You can recharge them via a traditional wall socket, car outlet, or lead-acid battery, but also via solar with a 2,400-watt maximum loading scale thanks to integrated smart MPPT or Maximum Power Point Tracking technology. They're portable, lightweight, and modular, as you can expand the system with more batteries at any time to increase capacity. Plus, you can use them to power nearly everything, from electronics and small appliances to lighting and beyond. To learn a little more about why they're so versatile together and as a system, keep reading.

As convenient as today's mobile devices can be, our over-reliance on electronics is not without problems; namely, having to keep all those mobile gadgets charged when you're on the move. Laptops, smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, wireless headphones, and handheld gaming systems (and this list only goes on) all require regular charging, and if you don't like being tied to a power outlet, then a portable power station is what you need. Growatt, an expert maker of smart home solar power and energy storage equipment, has just the solution in its new VITA 550, a compact and highly portable power station that's the perfect solution for keeping all your gadgets juiced up on the go. It was just released at the CES 2023 trade show with the standard price of $529.

As a solar leader, Growatt has 11 years of experience in the new energy industry, and has supported over three million individuals and families. Growatt's newest product, the VITA 550 features some impressive specs on that front. For example, the 240 watt input support is one of the highest solar intake options in the 500 watt-hour capacity range. It also charges super fast thanks to the 2.5-hour rated charging times via solar, thanks to the high solar input. Most importantly, the 99% MPPT technology delivers a very low conversion loss making the solar generation for the system much more efficient and capable.

We've all run into the situation of needing to charge one or more of our portable electronic devices, only to be nowhere near a power source. It's one of the perennial problems of living in a tech-driven digital age. It's no mystery, then, why portable charging solutions have become so popular, ranging from pocket-sized power banks to large generator-like power stations capable of powering laptops and smaller kitchen appliances. The new Growatt VITA 550 falls somewhere closer to the middle of that spectrum, striking a nice balance between portability and power storage capacity.
