It’s scary when the power goes out no matter where you live. Things are even worse during a major event like a hurricane or storm. Everything is dark, nothing is on, there is no heating, no appliances are working, nothing. You never know exactly when the power will come back. It can take minutes, hours, days or even longer – and very few people are prepared for a long power outage. The longer the outage, the more inconvenient the experience.
It’s a smart move to have a backup plan for times like this, emergency or not. At the very least, you can install a backup power system to keep your major appliances running, like a refrigerator so your food doesn’t spoil, or a fan so your home interior doesn’t turn in oven. You can also use it to charge your devices, power a radio, and keep a few lights on. Gas-powered generators can be good for this, except they’re noisy, require a lot of fuel, and you need to be well prepared to run one. What is the alternative?
An integrated and autonomous ecosystem that meets the needs of energy production, storage and use, such as EcoFlow DELTA Pro Ecosystem. It’s the perfect home battery backup solution with a full suite of accessories, including a smart home panel to help people maximize their independent power and resiliency plans. For example, the Smart Home Panel allows you to connect the DELTA Pro to your home circuit, to control up to 10 electrical circuits for your residence. During a power outage, power switches almost instantly to the DELTA Pro – in 20ms or less. But what exactly does it do? And what do you need to make it all work?
The ideal home battery backup solution
To start, EcoFlow DELTA Pro portable power station has a capacity of 3.6 kilowatt hours which can be extended up to 25 kilowatt hours. Addition of a Smart extra battery doubles the capacity, but thanks to the Dual Voltage Hub, you can also connect two EcoFlow DELTA Pro. This boosts power from 3600 watts to 7200 watts, and the dual voltage ensures enough power for almost any heavy-duty appliance, including electric heaters and clothes dryers.
Most comparable power stations are designed to be portable and lightweight, and often don’t include enough power to run a family during an outage. Although the EcoFlow DELTA Pro can be disconnected and moved at any time, it is phenomenal as a basic power source connected to your home. The Smart Home Panel even allows you to connect it directly to your home circuit. Think of it as a much cleaner and more convenient generator – no gas needed.
By pairing the DELTA Pro with accessories, you can both expand power capacity and customize your power system to meet your family’s needs.
Optional Accessories Worth the Upgrade
A relevant question to consider is whether or not you need EcoFlow accessories to create a viable energy ecosystem? The answer is both yes and no. No, you don’t need to buy any accessories and the DELTA Pro will work perfectly. But you’ll get so much more by adding compatible accessories, creating a truly self-contained ecosystem.
With these accessories, you can fully manage energy production, storage and use to help support your family and home. For example, the DELTA Pro ecosystem — which consists of the DELTA Pro, Smart home panel, Dual Voltage Hub, and accessories, such as a Smart extra battery — provides everything you need to keep your family safe and powered in the event of a power outage or even extreme weather events. You get extra power capacity for sustained energy, and it powers your home circuit directly. Additionally, you can install one or two solar panels to keep the system powered by renewable energy, longer. You can connect up to three 400W solar panels to the DELTA Pro to achieve up to 1,200 watts of solar power. With the world’s first Consumer Solar Tracker equipped, the system can track and follow the sun throughout the day to ensure the perfect positioning of the panel(s), increasing production by up to 30%.
Thanks to EcoFlow’s X-Stream technology, a single DELTA Pro unit can be fully charged in 2.7 hours by plugging it into a wall outlet. Additionally, when a DELTA Pro unit is connected to an additional smart battery, it enables 6,500 watt charging speed via an AC wall outlet, solar source and smart generator. This charging method is called MultiCharge and allows a single DELTA Pro and a Smart Extra Battery to be fully charged in just 2 hours. Charging speed is important because that’s enough time to fully charge your DELTA Pros if the power temporarily comes back on, and you’ll be fully prepared if and when the power goes out again.
When the weather conditions are extreme and the power goes out, it is difficult to recharge your DELTA Pro via solar energy. This is where the smart generator comes in, as the ultimate backup solution.
During a power outage or event, the Smart Home Panel powers up immediately and switches to the DELTA Pro for power, within a maximum of 20 milliseconds. It can keep lights on and appliances on, allowing you to safely turn off what you need, while keeping essential electronics running. With a complete ecosystem, with a capacity of 25 kilowatt hours, there is enough energy to power the average family for a week of use.
With a system of such capacity and durability, you don’t have to go out to refuel in bad weather, you don’t have to worry about losing critical power, and there are a ton of options. to expand and use the system. within your home.
The system is silent, outdoor and weatherproof, and fully modular thanks to these accessories.
The bigger question here is why aren’t you providing power for your family in these strange times?
