EcoFlow, a company that makes portable power stations, lightweight solar panels, and smarthome charging solutions, has revealed new options designed specifically for RVs and remote cabins. The company’s new Power Kits promise to make it easier than ever to build an off-grid charging solution using modular components that install in a fraction of the time of similar options from the competition.
The Power Hub
At the heart of an EcoFlow Power Kit is the company’s proprietary EcoFlow Power Hub. This device serves as the conduit between various components, including battery packs, solar panels, an AC/DC Smart Distribution Panel, and a power monitoring console. Once installed, the Power Kit can connect up to three lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, storing as much as 15,000 watt-hours (Wh) of electricity.
The Power Hub can be paired with EcoFlow’s 2,000Wh or 5,000Wh rechargeable LFP batteries and can link those batteries with compatible solar panels. The company offers 100-watt rigid and flexible solar cells, as well as 400-watt rigid panels. When fully equipped, the system can generate up to 4800 watts of power which is enough to recharge a 15KWh bank of batteries in about three hours. That’s enough energy to keep an RV running for up to 18 hours and an off-grid cabin for 11 to 14 hours.
Bundles of Power
EcoFlow is offering the Power Kits in three pre-made bundles. The Get Set Kit is the most basic, providing just the Power Hub and one or more batteries. The Premium Kit adds the AC/DC Smart Distribution Panel, which gives users circuit-level control over their power system. The Ultimate Kit includes everything found in the other two kits, plus the Power Kit Console and EcoFlow Smart Generator.
Each of the kits is available in five different bundles that include battery packs of different sizes and quantities. That makes for a total of 15 kits to choose from, which could be a bit confusing to consumers. To make things a little easier, EcoFlow is launching a Power Calculator on its website on July 5—the same day the Power Kits are available for preorder.
The strength of the Power Kits is the plug-and-play nature they bring to the market. Users can simply install the Power Hub, and all the batteries, solar panels, and other modules connect directly to it. The result is a seamless, easy-to-use system that is compact, efficient, and powerful.
