The energy solutions company confirmed that all three new models had been designed as entry-level portable power stations and one of the most accessible on the market under 1kWh. Furthermore, the new River series provides the most cost-effective power in its category and is perfect for on-the-go lifestyles and emergency home backup. Reliability was also a key factor, with a product lifetime six times better than when compared to the industry average.
Additionally, the inclusion of new advanced LFP batteries – that offers a 3,000 cycle when using one daily use for close to 10 years – provide a safer and more reliable output and can endure more extreme temperatures. Just to back up this claim, EcoFlow offers a five-year warranty with every purchase.
Utilising EcoFlow's innovative X-Stream technology, the River 2 series charges at five times the rate faster than its competitors. The standard River 2 model can reach 100% charge in 60 minutes total with River 2 Pro (the highest capacity model) only needing a further 10 minutes to reach maximum charge. No need to worry about charging the night before or panic because you forgot to hook it up to an outlet. Quick, simple and you're away.
"The launch of the River 2 series underlines EcoFlow’s commitment to meaningful innovation that solves real-life problems,” said EcoFlow CEO Bruce Wang as part of the announcement.
"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."
Two of the most impressive factors have to be the weight at an incredibly low 3.5kg (7.7lbs) as well as the option to charge via solar power. Supporting a maximum solar input of 220W, the River 2 series can be completely recharged in as little as three hours using EcoFlow’s Portable Solar Panels. The environmental-friendly decision is a win-win situation.
The pricing structure for the new River 2 series models is as below:
- River 2 – £269
- River 2 Max – £549
- River 2 Pro – £749
At a cost that is 34% cheaper than its predecessor, the River 2 series comes with one of the most competitive pricing structures out there. Within five years, EcoFlow has changed the game and is available to find in over 800 local retailers across all countries and regions in Europe.
