EcoFlow River 2 First Impressions
The River 2 Pro is not just about its looks; it’s about its performance too. It features EcoFlow’s X-boost technology that lets it power some devices that need up to 600 watts of power.
One of the standout features of the River 2 is its long-lasting LFP battery chemistry. EcoFlow claims that you can charge and empty the River 2 over 3000 times. That’s roughly 10 years of everyday use and 6x longer than the industry average. This longevity makes it a reliable power source for all your devices.
The power station also supports pass-through charging, which means you can power a device while the unit is being charged. Another cool thing is the ability of the EcoFlow River 2 Power Station to function as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), providing a continuous power source during power outages. The River 2 has a switchover speed of less than 30ms, automatically switching to battery power in the event of a power outage, ensuring your devices continue to operate without interruption. This seamless transition is crucial for preventing data loss in computers and maintaining the operation of essential devices.
