With a battery shelf life of one year and the ability to charge 11 devices at once, the RIVER portable power station is the most intuitive backup generator ever to hit the market (August 2017). From its 116,000mAh mega-capacity to its total output of 500 watts, the RIVER is equal parts mobile power station and solar generator – making it a perfect device for those living on and off-the-grid.
EcoFlow Tech, the San Francisco-based technology startup, designed its lightweight (11 lbs) RIVER to be highly portable with a wide selection of charging ports. With available inputs that include (2) USB QuickCharge 2.0, (2) USB, (2) USB Type C, (2) AC Outlets, (2) DC Outlets, and (1) 12V Car Port, the sky is the limit for which device you’d like to get charged up.
Whether you want to charge your GoPro 80 times over, your smartphone 30+ times, your laptop 9 times, or simply keep your refrigerator running for 10+ hours, the RIVER mobile power station is up for the challenge. The ultra lightweight charging station is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use and it can easily be recharged with the included car jack (9 hours), the included wall socket (6 hours) by connecting to a solar power inverter (10-15 hours). The best part: you can charge your other devices while waiting for the River to regain its own charge.
So if you’re in the market for a smart mobile power station, there are a few things you want to look for: maximum output, battery capacity, compatibility, portability, and some sort of surge protection. RIVER sets itself apart in almost all categories and especially with regard to its intelligent computer monitoring system. Protecting itself from power surges or sudden temperature changes, RIVER alerts you immediately if it detects any changes to its system.
Even though EcoFlow’s smart generator can operate in temperatures ranging from –4 to 140-degree Fahrenheit, its smart power surge protection technology is there to safeguard your devices. From automatically adjusting the power outlet to the right amount of wattage per device to regulating temperature to ensure interruption-free charging, RIVER’s battery management system is far superior to its competitors. By continually monitoring all 11 outputs individually, if one short circuit’s the other can seamlessly keep charging.
With a battery shelf life of one year, EcoFlow’s portable generator is 3-4 x’s more powerful than any other leading power station on the market today. By designing a clean 500W mobile power solution, EcoFlow is revolutionizing the ultra-capacity battery. No longer is it a loud, stationary fixture with limited output. It’s now a super lightweight, highly portable, temperature-controlled battery that can power an entire camp. This is more than just a power source for essential smart devices, this is a versatile emergency battery that can join the week-long family camping trip to the Adirondacks and come back fully charged awaiting its next smart device assignment.
