It’s a lot of fun to go away for the weekend and do some camping while we enjoy the great outdoors. When we’re out and about like this, a power station like the RIVER 2 series EcoFlow has just released, could come in very handy. These portable power stations are under 1kWh and they make grab-and-go power easier with their fast recharging speeds and the fact that they’re compact and easy to carry.

The RIVER 2 series of power stations is made up of three models – the RIVER 2, RIVER 2Max and the RIVER 2 Pro. These power stations charge to 80% in 48 minutes and weigh about 3.5kg, making grab-and-go power that much easier. They’re great for when you’re travelling but they can also come in handy if you need an emergency power backup at home.

There are three models in the RIVER 2 series of power stations – a handy product to have when you go camping
or even as an emergency power backup at home.

Another feature of these power stations is the fact they have a long lifetime – six times the industry average. All three models of the RIVER 2 series have LiFePO4 (LFP) batteries. Compared to an industry average of 500 cycles, the RIVER 2 series achieves 6x greater longevity, performing 3,000 cycles in one lifetime, and allowing once daily use for almost 10 years.

Solar power solution for a greener lifestyle

But alternatively, the RIVER 2 series can be charged via solar power to provide users with an easy way to achieve a greener lifestyle using renewable energy. Supporting a maximum solar input of 220W, the RIVER 2 series can be fully recharged in three hours using EcoFlow’s Portable Solar Panels.

EcoFlow has been moving towards eco-friendly energy solutions and finding ways to make these easier to access over the past few years. The RIVER 2 series provides an entry-level solution at an affordable price. Over the long-term, the series’ fast recharging speeds and long product lifetime, eliminates the need for regular replacement, making the RIVER 2 series cost-effective in the portable power stations under 1kWh market.

Bruce Wang, CEO of EcoFlow in Australia said the company designed these power stations to solve “real-life problems.” He added: “With an uncertain economic and environmental outlook, we want to make clean, portable energy accessible to everyone, everywhere. The EcoFlow RIVER 2 series makes this possible, offering practical, flexible and affordable energy solutions for adventures in the great outdoors or during power outages at home.”

Grab-and-go power for life’s unplanned moments

Because the RIVER 2 power stations use EcoFlow’s X-Stream technology, they’re able to recharge, on average, five times faster than other power stations on the market. The standard RIVER 2 model can recharge from 0-100% in 60 minutes and the highest capacity model – the RIVER 2 Pro – is fully recharged in 70 minutes. As a result, users can power spontaneous day trips or outings, even when plans are made at the last minute.
