Is there an agency in George Western Cape?
Anyone that gives this product a bad review just does not know what they are buying and how to size their energy requirement. They also have no idea what comparative products are like.
In terms of similar competition (Gizzu, Bluetti, jackberry, magneto etc) this blows them all out of the water.
Most of the others use lithium ion and not lithium ion phosphate which has a much higher recharge cycle rate. (ie 3000 Cycles vs only 800) ie: 4x the lifespan.
Only the Bluetti also has lifepo4 batteries and even has a model with UPS mode. However not true bypass and charge from the reviews I've seen.
I researched the heck out of all of these before settling on this for my 80year old parents. I needed something that will just work without any manual intervention and maintenance etc. True plug, play & forget!
The river 2 max has lifepo4 batteries. (the best you can get). It runs quiet, it runs cool. (super soft fan) It charges while it's providing pass through power when the mains is on. I don't think any of the competition does this effectively.
Most of the other brands you have to plug the devices in only when the power drops. (not ups)
The river 2 max however has auto switch over ups functionality for those loadshedding moments when you need to keep things on and working when Eskom just can't.
In terms of sizing... I keep my parents wifi, 32inch TV and dstv decoder going for over 5 hours. I have not had to test the limits yet but the app and onscreen display tell you how long on current load it can go.
Recharge time is lightning fast also. So it will be effective for stage and 6 loadshedding as it will recharge to full between outages no problem.
I've brought it with me on holiday for 2 weeks as the guest houses I'm staying in don't have emergency power that I'm aware of and so far it seems able to keep a 65 inch and a fewnother low power items like modems and routers etc going for more than a full session of load shedding.
I'd recommend getting the Delta 2 for double the capacity if you are planning to do more than I've mentioned above.
Most of the aforementioned brands from provide some but not all of the functionality as the eco river 2. It does everything we need in ZA re emergency power and UPS functionality.
Also bear in mind that this item is/was actually designed for camping. Not for Eskom loadshedding.... But it works great for us too.
The on-screen info, android app, lifepo4 batteries, ups function and bypass power while charging puts it far above the competition.
Yes it's double the price of the competition, however in this case you really do get what you pay for!
Also a 5 year warranty!
I ordered mine from a 3rd part supplier not direct from ecoflow so I cannot comment re buffalo courier etc.
There are plenty of indepth youtube reviews on this. Watch them!
I will definitely be getting another one these in the near future!
