It is a game changer, we tested the extra battery to make sure we could use all appliances off grid. Absolutely excellent results coffee machine, microwave, toaster, you name it we tested it. The great thing is that we still had plenty of power left and charging both batteries didn’t take long. A great addition to living off the grid.
I previously purchased a different power station that works fine, but is SO heavy. The River Pro is half the weight, and, now that I have an extra battery, it does twice the job, and I can easily carry both the power station and the extra battery, plus it's easier to store.
It's a huge relief knowing that, when the power goes out, I can just plug my River Pro into the fridge and freezer knowing all my food is protected, and I can plug in my wifi and still use my internet, which is vitally important living in a remote rural area.
So far, it provides more than enough power for my needs. Being able to use extra batteries is such a boon ~ with the high cost of electricity, I'm considering getting yet another extra battery and using it at night so I can make the most out of my solar arrays without all the inconvenience and expense of having a huge battery system hooked up to the solar system.
The River Pro Extra Battery enhanced & expanded my back-up energy capability. I feel that I now have the emergency energy needed for unforeseen emergencies.
When i bought this battery it wasnt able to connect with the main unit and i couldnt use it. I had to talk to customer support and they said it was a software issue but they immediately were able to get it shipped to them, fixed and returned to me in a bit over a week and now it works perfectly so far.
