How EcoFlow’s New DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 Series Power Stations Can Help Save Small Businesses.

It is well known that small businesses are the lifeblood of any economy. Loadshedding has been devastating for small businesses in South Africa, resulting in the country’s economy losing billions.

During load shedding, businesses experience struggle, which leads to lost revenue, decreased customer satisfaction and ultimately the death of a business.

Thanks to the arrival of the new EcoFlow DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 series of portable power stations, small and micro business owners now have a shot at surviving loadshedding.

Bringing Power To People

Founded in 2017, EcoFlow is a sustainable energy solutions company that has built a strong reputation as a tech-savvy power provider for consumers who need electricity where none exists.

Having empowered more than 2 million people in over 100 markets across the globe, EcoFlow’s arrival in the country has come at a time when small and micro businesses need a solution. Cue the DELTA 2, RIVER 2, and RIVER 2 Max.

Brimming with state-of-the-art technology, all three power stations are equipped with high-capacity lithium-ion batteries that last 3000 charge cycles or the equivalent of 10 years of regular use.

They are all also capable of achieving a full charge in 80 minutes thanks to EcoFlow’s patented X-Stream technology. This makes them perfect for entrepreneurs running small that are being severely hit by loadshedding.

One of the key benefits of the EcoFlow DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 series is their portability. These power stations are compact and lightweight with the DELTA 2 weighing 12kg, while the RIVER 2 Max weighs 6.1kg and the RIVER2 weighs a paltry 3.5kg.

This makes them easy to transport to different locations as needed. This is especially useful for small businesses that may need to move their operations to different sites during load shedding.

The DELTA 2, A Home Office Specialist

As EcoFlow’s flagship product on the South African market, the DELTA 2 is a robust energy solution that gives consumers a taste of energy independence.

Sporting LiFePO4 batteries and weighing just 12kg, the DELTA 2 has enough capacity to comfortably deal with long power outages and professional work.

If you found yourself in stage 8 loadshedding for example, the DELTA 2 could comfortably power your laptop and 12 other devices for multiple consecutive loadshedding blocks. Using the EcoFlow Solar Charge attachments, a full charge can be achieved in as fast as 3 hours.

The RIVER 2 and RIVER 2 Max, Power Anytime, Anywhere

For consumers with less onerous backup power needs, the RIVER 2 and RIVER 2 Max are perfect entry points into the world of portable power stations.

The RIVER 2 has a capacity of 256Wh, a rated output of 300W (X-boost 600W) and 5 power outlets. Its larger cousin, the RIVER 2 Max can generate a rated output of 500W (X-boost 1000W) with a capacity of 512W and has 9 outlets.

Both have a lifespan of 3000 charges beyond 80% which translates to roughly a decade of use. The RIVER 2 Max, which only weighs 6kg, features a potential full recharge time of under 1 hour when plugged into an AC wall socket and EcoFlow power stations can also be recharged by 12V/24V car adapters.

Similarly, the lightweight RIVER 2, 3kg, can also achieve a full charge when plugged into an AC wall socket but will take just 3 hours using the Solar Charge attachments.

Overflowing With Features

Both the EcoFlow DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 series come with a burnished LCD screen that displays real-time power usage and battery life making it easy to keep track of your power usage.

They are also built to work perfectly in the toughest conditions, including extreme temperatures and rough terrain. This combined with their portability means that businesses that do not need fixed premises, do not need to be rooted to one space that way they would be with an inverter.

The DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 series’ also feature a range of charging options making them as flexible as the new world of work is.

All EcoFlow products also offer a range of safety features, including surge protection, short circuit protection, and temperature control.

This helps protect the power stations and the devices connected to them, ensuring they remain safe and functional even during periods of high demand.

As a small business owner, being subject to the whims of the power utility’s loadshedding schedule is not a recipe for success. With EcoFlow’s DELTA 2 and RIVER 2 series, you can help safeguard your business and take power back into your own hands.
