If there’s one place where you should be able to feel comfortable, it’s at home. With rising energy costs and frequent talk of future grid failures, the world seems to be filled with uncertainty right now. While many things are, naturally, out of our control, there are some ways that you can instill more confidence in your own environment. Especially as we are rapidly headed towards winter, taking the reins on your home’s power supply seems timely to say the least.

The cost of energy is one thing but what these resources are costing the environment is also cause for concern. As we’re all looking for innovative ways to be more budget and eco-friendly, considering a portable power station to effectively backup your home’s energy supply in a sustainable way means that you’ll have a little more peace of mind this winter, and beyond. Here’s why it’s worth considering:

1. Enhancing everyday living 

Designed to efficiently power your home, from running appliances like the dishwasher or washing machine to heating water for a shower, even in an outhouse or cabin, portable power stations are the future and can give households more control of their energy supply and expenditure.

Choosing a model like EcoFlow’s DELTA 2 1kWh will see your home is fully functional and comfortable in no time. Complete with a 1024Wh capacity in itself – and able to be combined with previous models for optimised energy also – the DELTA 2 offers a superior solution to many repercussions of the energy crisis. With 13 outlets, it gives households more energy freedom. Whether you need to boost everyone’s phone on a last-minute trip or simply run your coffee maker, a power supply that delivers safe usage is indispensable. Thanks to the Delta 2’s X-Boost technology, you can rest assured that you’ll get the most out of everyday high wattage appliances, without overloading them – making it a brilliant addition to modern households. 

2. Offering sustainable solutions

Gone are the days of ‘backups’ not showing up, now portable power supplies are revolutionary on all levels, from charging, to run time. DELTA 2 is both powerful and quick to charge for unparalleled reliability. Able to fire up to 80% in under an hour (50 minutes to be precise), no matter how busy and demanding your household may be, the DELTA 2 will be able to provide a reliable solution to power needs big or small.

Plus, with greener living now just as much of a priority as staying on budget, having a portable power supply that can deliver optimum performance in a way that is kind to the environment, is a big plus. A model like the DELTA 2 was built to offer a reliable but also renewable energy solution. It uses LFP batteries which are a more stable and longer-lasting alternative to traditional batteries – a major development in the energy sector –  and it can actually be charged using EcoFlow Portable Solar Panels. Taking 500 W solar output, in just three to six hours of energy-saving charging, your power supply can be ready to use.

3. Designed to suit you on every level

With all that power, you may expect something bulky and unsightly. However, choosing a discreet portable power station like EcoFlow’s DELTA 2 that is seamless in design to suit, if not even enhance, every modern home, means you won’t have to compromise on your home’s style or sacrifice too much space either.

Built for busy lifestyles, there’s an EcoFlow app that you can use to control your DELTA 2 over Wi-Fi, or even using Bluetooth should you go off-grid. Whether you want to check charging data or customize settings to adjust the charging speed, you can do so with ease. Plus, with 1-3kWh expandable capacity, you can grow your storage depending on your household needs.

EcoFlow says that you’ll enjoy 10 years of daily use from the DELTA 2 thanks to the LFP battery chemistry allowing for 3000+ cycles, which is 6x the longevity of alternatives. Available with a 5-year warranty, investing in a revolutionary product to keep your home’s power supply not just afloat but fully functioning, from a company that’s making waves in the sustainable energy world, is a move that makes complete sense.

What's more, late October EcoFlow is launching its RIVER 2 Series featuring even more portable and affordable options. Full details will be revealed on EcoFlow websites from October 25th.
