Ecoflow RIVER 2, RIVER 2 Max and RIVER Pro using LFP battery tech to achieve 3,000+ cycles, or 10-year lifespan

    EcoFlow Launches RIVER 2 Series: An Affordable, Environmentally Friendly Solution for On-the-Go Lifestyles and Home Backup.

    Back in December, I had the opportunity to review the EcoFlow DELTA battery, now the company has a suite of new products that allow as many as 3,000 charging cycles, enough for as much as 10 years of powering the house during a blackout or powering your family camping trips.

    EcoFlow, a company that specializes in environmentally friendly energy solutions, has launched its RIVER 2 series, a line of affordable and innovative portable power stations. The RIVER 2 series includes three models – RIVER 2, RIVER 2 Max, and RIVER 2 Pro – all of which are under 1kWh in size and provide a reliable source of energy for on-the-go lifestyles and emergency home backup.

    EcoFlow RIVER 2 and RIVER 2 Max are available for purchase from the EcoFlow official website, Amazon, Harvey Norman, Anaconda, Total Tools, Battery World, etc on 3rd April. The availability date of EcoFlow RIVER 2 Pro will be announced later. You can see more information via this link.

    Grab-and-Go Power for Life’s Unplanned Moments 

    Featuring EcoFlow’s innovative X-Stream technology, the RIVER 2 series recharges on average 5 times faster than comparable products on the market. The standard RIVER 2 model can recharge from 0-100% in just 60 minutes, with even the highest capacity model, RIVER 2 Pro, fully recharging in just 70 minutes. As a result, users can power spontaneous day trips and get-togethers, even when plans are made at the last minute. 

    Alternatively, the RIVER 2 series can be charged via solar power to provide users with an easy way to achieve a greener lifestyle using energy that is completely free. Supporting a maximum solar input of 220W, the RIVER 2 series can be fully recharged in as little as 3 hours using EcoFlow’s Portable Solar Panels

    Reliable Energy Provides Long-Term Peace of Mind 

    All 3 models of the RIVER 2 series are equipped with state-of-the-art, long-lasting 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. LFP batteries provide a safer and more reliable output and can endure more extreme temperatures, enabling RIVER 2 to be used in difficult weather conditions. Additionally, all EcoFlow RIVER 2 models come with a 5-year warranty for enduring peace of mind. 

    Economical Energy from Day One and Beyond 

    Reflecting EcoFlow’s desire to make eco-friendly energy solutions easier to access than ever before, the series provides an entry-level solution at an affordable initial price, ranging from just $649 for the standard RIVER 2 to $1,399 for the 768Wh Pro model. In the long-term, the series’ fast recharging speeds and ultra-long product lifetime eliminates the need for regular replacement, making the RIVER 2 series the cost-effective range of portable power stations under 1kWh on the market. 

    The launch of the RIVER 2 series underlines EcoFlow’s commitment to meaningful innovation that solves real-life problems. 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.

    EcoFlow’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions and its innovative RIVER 2 series provides an affordable and reliable option for those looking to power their on-the-go lifestyles or prepare for emergencies at home.
