Customer Reviews

Based on 14 reviews

As one reviewer pointed out, even though these stations are next level, any person planning to buy should take in account no such thing as 100% efficiency. Your needed load thus divided by ie factor 0.8 would point to size required. Ups for it to be means 10ms about switch over.

Better to buy at your local shop than order off the website

Ordered my unit 10 days ago. Unit arrived in CT on the 17th, today is the 20th. Estimated delivery date shifted from the 18 -20th November to 18 - 24th November. ETA is basically 15 days \0/

Excellent Product

I think everybody wishes to have an off-grid solar setup in SA at the moment, but these portable units pack major value if you cant install a solar array where you live, or are looking to get load shedding relief while planning a larger setup. The benefit of these units being that you can take them anywhere in a bag, even on holiday.

I see a lot of people stating that they are not happy with the unit and leaving a bad review because it does not last them through loadshedding. This is not Ecoflows fault, it is YOUR responsibility to educate yourself and check how much capacity you need to run your stuff. Don't buy the smallest power station expecting it to run your whole house for 4 hours, check the power consumption for any electronics you need to run during loadshedding and work from there.

The device works great for its intended use which is to run my work-from-home setup during loadshedding. It can run my laptop, monitor and a network switch for just under 4 hours (about 25 - 30 watt load). Gaming is also possible with this unit but it depends on your hardware... Xbox Series S and a monitor requires around 80-90 watts during gameplay. A larger console or gaming PC will reduce this time because they use a lot more power.

I also purchased a 100 watt solar panel (through a third party) and now I can run my work setup indefinitely as long as the sun is shining. The panel will charge the station in about 4 hours if its producing 70 watts. I have noticed that Ecoflow SA sells a bundle which includes the Ecoflow River 2 and 2 x 100 watt solar panels, but I can assure you that 2 x 100w panels will exceed the max solar input and give you an overload error if you try to connect both (just a warning for anyone else who is planning on trying 2 x 100w solar panels, you will need atleast the river 2 max).

I will not recommend any other brand to friends and family, Ecoflow is the best available. I will soon be purchasing another unit(most likely a river 2 max) and scaling up my solar accordingly to give me plenty of reliable backup power for loadshedding :)


This is great under current situation thank you so much

Gives about 4 hours on a 35w load (27-inch screen + Macbook Air + phone charge)


A lot of negative comments, but from what I have tested, it works as advertised.

It's 256W, which delivers about 4 hours with a 35W load, taking into account conversion loss.

That powers a 27-inch screen, a Macbook Air (admittedly light on power), and a phone charging.

If the unit goes off completely, you do have to switch the AC back on, as per a previous review. Not a problem if that's on your desk and in-front of you. If you needed that in the middle of the night, then it would be a problem. **Update - there is a Labs feature in the app which aims to solve this (see screenshot)

If you need more power, get the Ecoflow River 2 Max model, same , newer battery tech but double capacity.
