6 Tips for Choosing a Portable Power Station

EcoFlow RIVER series portable power stations offer the best portable power for off-grid adventures. Just like the EcoFlow DELTA series, the RIVER series come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, with different features tailored towards different users. Take a quick look below at everything you need to know before buying a RIVER series portable power station.

Portability

The best portable power station is the one that you can take around and use anywhere. Because let’s face it – lugging around a huge battery is not fun. EcoFlow RIVER series portable power stations start at 6.3lbs and go up to around 16.8lbs. So if you’re looking for something super light and small, the new EcoFlow RIVER mini is a great choice. Or if you’re looking for something light with a larger capacity, the EcoFlow RIVER Max has a detachable battery that you can take off whenever you like.

Capacity

The capacity of your portable power station determines how long you can stay powered on for, with larger capacities suited towards heavier applications like emergency power or off-grid power. The EcoFlow RIVER and RIVER Max come with an expandable design, allowing you to max out your capacity with an extra battery. If you need to power your devices for extended periods of time, the EcoFlow RIVER Pro has a large expandable capacity of up to 1.4kWh.

Output

This one is pretty simple — higher outputs allow you to power more demanding appliances like hair dryers, small fridges, or even vacuums (camping can get messy). The good news is, all EcoFlow portable power stations feature X-Boost technology, extending your output whenever you need an extra little bit of power.

Fast Charging

Nobody wants to wait half a day to charge up. All EcoFlow portable power stations feature X-Stream charging, the fastest charging method on the market.

Solar Charging

Whether you're camping, tailgating, or out in the wild, solar charging gives you another effortless charging option to stay powered on. For those of you in sunny locations, you can harness the power of the sun to generate reliable solar energy. What if you’re not blessed with all-year-round Californian sunshine? Not to worry. EcoFlow portable power stations have an advanced MPPT algorithm that automatically detects voltage and current in real-time to increase solar generation, even in cold and cloudy conditions.

Battery Chemistry

You’ll often hear a portable power station called a solar generator, battery generator, or even a portable generator. At the end of the day, they’re all portable battery-powered devices. One important thing to look out for is the battery chemistry. The EcoFlow RIVER series utilizes NCM batteries, which reduce the weight of the unit and increase the output performance in colder environments. That gives you a lightweight battery you can use all year round.

Now we have all that covered, let’s start by taking a look at the EcoFlow RIVER series.

EcoFlow RIVER mini

The EcoFlow RIVER mini is the smallest portable power station we’ve ever made. It’s more powerful than a power bank and more portable than other power stations. Get an EcoFlow RIVER mini today and take power pretty much anywhere.

Portability: Mini Portable Power Station

We weren’t kidding when we said the EcoFlow RIVER mini was the smallest and lightest portable power station we’ve ever made. It comes in at just 6.3 lbs, so if you’re looking for something more powerful than a power bank but don’t want to skimp on portability, the EcoFlow RIVER mini is a great option.

Capacity: 210Wh Capacity

Even larger power banks typically only reach about 10,000 mAh capacity. In watt-hours, that’s roughly around 50Wh. The EcoFlow RIVER mini storms ahead with up to 210Wh of capacity, giving you hours more power. That’s the equivalent of 15 phone charges, 4 laptop charges, or 13 portable speaker charges. Pretty neat, right?

Output: 300W AC Output

This is where things get even more interesting. Unlike power banks, the EcoFlow RIVER mini comes with 300W AC wall outlets. That means you can power your phone, laptop, lights, and fans wherever you go. In a cafe and can’t find an AC outlet? Out on a camping trip and need to charge your phone? You get the point — free yourself from the wall with RIVER mini.

Fast Charging: 0-80% in 1 hour

Charging doesn’t have to be a chore. The EcoFlow RIVER mini charges up to 80% in just one hour. And it gets even better. The RIVER mini (wireless) has a convenient charging pad on the top so you can do away with all those pesky wires.

Solar Charging: 100W Solar Charging

If you’re not near a wall, you can also charge up with solar energy in as quick as 3 hours. An extra option that's yours if you need it.

Battery Chemistry: NCM Battery

Just like other RIVER series portable power stations, RIVER mini has an NCM battery. In addition to keeping the unit weight down, this battery chemistry is better for low-temperature resistance, which means you can store and use the battery in colder environments.

EcoFlow RIVER mini: The Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a mini portable power station that’s more powerful than a power bank, has more ports, and it’s small enough to fit in your backpack, the EcoFlow RIVER mini is an excellent choice for you.
