Solar Generators – The key to having power in your house, no matter rain or shine | The Wacky Duo

Solar Generators will be the eco-friendly power source for the next

With the notion of going ‘green’ in today’s society, there is a greater
emhapsis on alternative power sources. From electrical cars to solar power,
many had been exploring ways to contribute to the environment by adopting more
green-friendly power sources.

Solar power has been around for decades and had been touted as a viable energy
source for the future. In today’s urban cities, where most are living in
skyscrapers, having a solar-powered system may not be possible. This is
because most buildings especially the older ones are not equipped with solar
power panels. 

With the advance in technology, companies like
Ecoflow provide a cutting-edge solution with the use of portable Solar Generators
with its range of Portable Power Stations such as the DELTA and
the RIVER series. With the recent spike in electricity fees, the
popularity of alternative power sources such as portable power stations is on
the rise. This is especially so for power stations that adopt the use of Solar
Energy. Ecoflow pushes the envelope on renewable energy with its latest range
of solar generators.

Why Solar Power

Solar Generators are portable battery systems that harnessed the power of the
sun with solar panels. This renewable energy source would be able to power
many home appliances. Portable ones are also useful to carry on the road.

The good thing about solar generators is that they will work regardless of
rain or shine. The Solar panels are used to capture the sun’s energy into
solar generators. These are stored in the power stations’ built-in battery for
future consumption. Even without direct sunlight, these units can be charged
if they are exposed to light, allowing charges with the dimmest of sunlight.
While it may take a longer time to charge, it is still possible to do so in
overcast conditions.

It is more eco-friendly as there are no air pollutants such as greenhouse
gases from these units. The amount of energy the generators are capable of
will be dependent on the power rating of the solar panels. The larger the
watts, the more power it will store.

EcoFlow Portable Solar Panels is the answer for urban dwellers to utilize the
sun’s energy. It has a range of solar panels that range from 60W to a massive
400W. For portability and power on the go, the 110W would be most ideal for a
day out. The 400W would make a suitable home companion on the balcony or open

The Solar panels are rated IP68 and are water and dust-resistant. It has an
industry-leading solar conversion efficiency of up to 23% and is 10% smaller
than similar portable solar panels on the market. It comes with a case that
doubles as a stand. Lastly, it is foldable which gives it portability.

For more power, you can connect multiple solar panels to an Ecoflow Power
Station via the Ecoflow Solar Parallel Connection cable. More solar panels
equate to a speedier charge and increase the ability to charge a higher-watt
power station faster.

DELTA or RIVER, which one should I pick?

For those new to EcoFlow, it may be daunting to choose the right unit as they
have 8 different types of portable power stations to choose from. The 2 main
series are the  River and the Delta Series.

The River series would be compact portable power stations that would suffice
to charge devices on the go. It comes in mini versions that hold 6 times more
charge than a power bank while the pro version gives a generous output of
1440Wh which is good for charging 10 different devices.

The Delta series would be the heavy-duty range with a maximum output that can
produce a whopping 7200W, enough to power up a mid-size house, let alone
charge a Tesla.

Here is a closer look at the different series and their uses.
