    EcoFlow Advanced Kit review: Power your whole house with batteries

    Batteries are replacing gasoline in not only cars but now generators. The EcoFlow Advanced Kit.- comprised of two individual EcoFlow Delta Pros.- is a prime example of the future of generator power.

    EcoFlow Delta Pro unit for Advanced Kit

    The Advanced Kit is a safer and more efficient energy option for when a blackout happens, and you need power fast.

    While the EcoFlow Advanced Kit may be more powerful and coherent than a regular generator, it comes with a more robust price tag alongside it.

    EcoFlow Delta Pro design

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro.- the power factor of the EcoFlow Advanced Kit.- is built within a 25×11.2×16.4 inch box-shaped design with two wheels on the back and an LCD screen on the front that takes up about one-third of the front panel.

    Read from AppleInsider

    The whole design replicates the look of a massive battery, and essentially, that’s what it is.

    A button on the bottom of the front will release a handle for you to pull the 99-pound Delta Pro. This handle is handy when transporting the unit from one spot to another.

    While it may look like it cannot withstand the weight, the handle is extremely sturdy.

    Handle bar for EcoFlow Delta Pro

    Two handles at the top come in use when picking up the unit, but unless 100 pounds is easy for you to carry, it is suggested that you and one other person take one of the handles and lift the Delta Pro together.

    The LCD screen presents huge digital numbers that are easy to read and simple to understand when wanting to know how much battery is left or how much power is being used.

    Specifically, the battery percentage converted to the number of days left is showcased on the left. The battery percentage is in the middle (surrounded by a corresponding battery-level ring). The power input and output status are on the right side of the screen.

    Front information panel and ports

    Underneath the screen are the ports you can plug your devices into to charge. Two USB-A ports can output up to 12W of max power; the other two support fast charging of up to 18W, and two USB-C ports can hit speeds up to 100W.

    A power button is located in the middle of the USB-C ports. Press it once to turn on the Delta Pro, and hold it down for three seconds to turn it off. It’s like operating a television, which beats repeatedly injuring your arm by tugging on a ripcord.

    Below the ports are four power outlets that can output a max of 20A and an XD-010 port that can discharge power of up to 30A. A power button for them is located above the outlets.

    Power outlets located on the front

    On the back are an 11-150V DC port (used for solar or car charging) and a 100-240V AC port that both output a max of 15A. A speed switch in the middle allows you to make charging speeds faster or slower for connected devices.

    Next to the ports is a switch that protects the power station from overloading.

    Rear ports of EcoFlow Delta Pro

    Underneath the ports are two shielded outlets that allow you to plug in additional batteries.- sold separately.- to prolong the battery life of the Delta Pro.

    A panel on the lower right side connects the unit to your phone through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, a Bluetooth standby switch, a remote control (sold separately) port, and an IOT reset button. An infinity port, 12V DC power button, and Anderson port.- which can output a max of up to 378W.- can also be found in the exact location.

    Inside the Delta Pro is a 3.6kWh capacity battery made from LFP (lithium iron phosphate) and has a cycle life of 6,500 when up to 50% capacity or 3,500 cycles when up to 80%.

    EcoFlow Delta Pro functionality

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro.- one half of the Advanced Kit.- offers much solid power alone and can be transported with you on trips as well.

    With a 3,600Wh battery inside, the Delta Pro can last up to one day and output 12V of power. It can be fully charged in roughly 2.7 hours.- which is good statistically since you get nearly 12x the amount of usage out of the power station.

    Port to add additional battery

    How fast the battery drains obviously depends on how many appliances you have running on the unit. There is a slight overhead, as always, but it isn’t bad.

    To charge the Delta Pro, plug the charging cord into the X-Stream charging input port on the back and then plug the prongs into a regular wall outlet. You can also charge it with the included car cigarette lighter adapter.

    Charging speeds are up to 1800W max, and 12V car charging speeds are also included.

    The Delta Pro can be taken nearly anywhere you go.- especially to areas where power outlets may not be accessible. While the unit can charge from a cigarette lighter in the car, it can also be recharged through the Infinity port on the side at electric vehicle charging stations.

    Port to charge Delta Pro at EV charging station and connect to Advanced Kit

    Charging the Delta Pro at an electric vehicle charging station is very beneficial.- especially in the case of a natural disaster that can cause a widespread blackout. Then, while everyone is waiting in long gas lines, you can skip the line and go straight to an EV charging station to fill up your electronic generator.

    Unlike a traditional generator that would make a bunch of noise when running and stink up the surrounding area with the smell of gasoline, the Delta Pro runs quietly with only the sound of the fans running to keep the battery cool.

    ecoflow, advanced, review, power

    The noise levels can be compared to a laptop fan running at high speeds, so you won’t hear your power stations at all if you have them in the garage or downstairs. It usually runs at a temperature of around 68-86 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Due to the Delta Pro being powered by batteries instead of gasoline, it is safe to have them inside your house while running. This eliminates the fear of your generator being stolen if left outside at night or needing to refill it multiple times in bad weather.

    EcoFlow Advanced Kit functionality

    While the Delta Pro is powerful, pairing two together to assemble the EcoFlow Advanced Kit creates a powerhouse strong enough to power your whole house.

    Advanced Kit consisting of two Delta Pros

    When purchasing the Advanced Kit, you will receive the Double Voltage Hub, which connects both Delta Pros to make them one power unit. Plugging the two units into the hub is like plugging a cable into an outlet; it is effortless.

    You then connect the adapter cable to the infinity port.- the same port you would use to charge the Delta Pro at an EV charging station.

    The Advanced Kit has a 21.6 kilowatt-hour capacity (kWh) versus 7.2 kWh and can deliver 240V. When actively running, it can give you up to one week of delivered energy to your home, depending on load.

    You can fully recharge the whole unit in under 6 hours (5.4 hours, to be exact). This is an excellent turnaround for a battery that can last you a week before having to be recharged.

    Unlike the singular Delta Pro, the Advanced Kit is made to fully power your home, from refrigerators to lights, to your washer and dryer.

    To have the Advanced Kit power your home, you need to connect it to a power inlet box that houses all of your power switches for the electricity zones in your house.

    Connection to inlet box and power switches

    Once the Advanced Kit is plugged in, you turn on both units, press the power button on the Double Voltage Hub, and turn the power station switch on in your control panel. Your home will then solely start running off the power from both Delta Pros.

    While running, you can see the amount of power outputted from the LCD screen.

    EcoFlow mobile app

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro connects to your phone via the EcoFlow app and a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection. This is the central hub to get information about your power.

    After pairing your units to the app, you can go in and customize the settings and name of the device and know the status of the power going in and out of it. The information available on the LCD screen is copied through the app.

    You can see how much power is outputted through the device and from each port and outlet. This gives you a great insight into what connected devices are draining the most battery.

    Settings for Screen Brightness, Battery Percentage, overall Settings panel, and Firmware Upgrades

    You can also customize the Delta Pro’s sound when turning it on and how bright the LCD screen is. Energy management is also available, which allows you to stop recharging at a set level.

    If you leave the Advanced Kit on and it is not outputting any power, you can set how long until it automatically turns off so the battery does not go to waste.

    Firmware updates are a part of the Delta Pro, which you can download from your smartphone and sync to the power station. It’s just like when you update your Apple Watch.

    The update process is quick and straightforward, with no additional actions needed other than pressing upgrade.

    While the app allows you to customize and handle your Delta Pro in additional ways than just having the unit, this will only be available if the Delta Pro is turned on. Unfortunately, you cannot turn them on or off from the app.

    A battery-operated home

    The Delta Pro can be used as a stand-alone power source that can charge your devices and appliances without power, or you can pair it with another Delta Pro and create a whole-home power system.

    The weight of Delta Pro is heavy, but with the included wheels, handles, and expanding bar underneath, transporting it is very easy. Likewise, maneuvering it around is simple, whether pulling or pushing it into place.

    With so many different ways to charge the Delta Pro.- from a regular wall outlet to a car’s cigarette lighter to even an EV charging station.- you can always find a way to keep your battery powered.

    While the price is nearly 7,000 for the Advanced Kit, the longevity of a single battery cycle is impressive. A typical gas generator can typically go for around 600 and last up to 14.5 hours, but the Advanced Kit can last a whole week.- which is practically 14x longer than a gas generator.

    The downside of the Advanced Kit is that you cannot turn on the units from the connected app with just the Advanced Kit. If the power goes out, you need to turn them on physically. However, this small isuse can be overseen, seeing how often you may need to turn it on.

    It is powerful, quiet, informational, and long-lasting without needing to refill the battery daily. In addition, you do not have to go downstairs to check the battery status; you can do everything from your phone.

    If you have the budget to do so and are looking for a long-lasting and efficient generator that is easy to use and set up, then the EcoFlow Advanced Kit is worth the money spent. Say goodbye to gas generators and hello to battery-powered ones; they are the future of home generating.

    Rating: 4 out of 5

    How Do You Connect a Backup Power Generator to Your Home?

    A backup power generator provides much-needed electricity during a power outage. It can be a lifesaver for those living in areas prone to extreme weather or blackouts.

    A generator ensures that essential appliances such as refrigerators, lights, and heating systems continue functioning. Connecting one to your home can be straightforward with the right tools and knowledge.

    This article explores the steps and considerations for connecting a backup generator to your home, including choosing the proper transfer switch for your backup power system.

    Using a Transfer Switch to Connect a Backup Generator to Your Home

    Transfer switches allow the home’s electrical circuit to automatically or manually switch to the backup generator for its power source. Without one, you’ll only be able to plug appliances directly into the generator’s inputs. You wouldn’t be able to use anything hardwired to the home circuit panel — such as central heating and AC, and lights hardwired into the walls or ceiling.

    When the power goes out, you can either manually flip the switch or wait for the system to kick in automatically, depending on the type of transfer switch you’ve installed.

    Knowledgeable, handy homeowners may opt for a DIY installation, but hiring a professional is advisable. Electrical wiring is not recommended for the amateur handyperson.

    Whichever route you choose, you must purchase the correct transfer switch.

    Step 1: Choose the Right Type of Transfer Switch

    There are several types of transfer switches, including manual transfer switches, automatic transfer switches, and breaker interlocks.

    Each has its benefits and drawbacks, so it’s essential to research and choose the one that best fits your needs.

    Manual Transfer Switches

    These switches require manual operation. They’re typically the least expensive, and you can easily install one for portable generators, such as the EcoFlow DELTA Pro.

    Manual transfer switches require the user to switch the power source from the home circuit to the generator. Set-up is simple, and you can easily find universal transfer switches at the local home improvement store.

    The only drawback is that someone must be present to switch to the backup power source. It can be inconvenient during a blackout — especially when it comes to appliances like refrigerators, freezers, and even fish tanks.

    A manual transfer switch doesn’t provide uninterrupted access to power.

    Automatic Transfer Switches

    Automatic transfer switches detect a power outage and transfer power from the generator to the home electrical circuit without manual intervention. They’re more expensive than manual switches but offer the convenience of automatic operation.

    Both gas and solar generators have automatic transfer switches. However, gas generators usually cause a 1-2 minute service interruption as the generator kicks on and warms up.

    In contrast, a battery-based home backup solution like the EcoFlow Smart Home Ecosystem allows uninterrupted power. A standard system comes with a DELTA Pro portable power station, optional solar panels and extra batteries, and a Smart Home Panel — which has the automatic transfer switch built in. Smart Home Ecosystem setup is simple and customizable to your needs, supports up to 10 home circuits, and integrates with your existing wiring.

    Breaker Interlock

    Breaker interlocks are installed on the main electrical panel to prevent power from back-feeding into the utility lines. Most building codes require this safety feature in conjunction with a manual or automatic transfer switch. Back-feeding power into the utility lines can harm utility workers and damage the generator or other equipment.

    A breaker interlock is a barrier between the generator and utility power, preventing back-feeding. It also prevents accidental generator start-up while utility power is present.

    Breaker interlocks are a critical safety feature when connecting a generator to your home.

    Step 2: Install the Transfer Switch

    Once you’ve chosen the correct type of transfer switch, the next step is to install it. Power from the generator will run into the transfer switch, and the transfer switch will then feed this power into your home’s electrical panel.

    ecoflow, advanced, review, power

    If you have home wiring experience, you can DIY install the generator and connect it to the transfer switch and home electrical circuit. However, it’s better to hire an electrician to avoid electrical hazards. Professionals will ensure the wiring and grounding of the transfer switch is in order and will complete all necessary permits and inspections.

    Step 3: Connect the Generator to Your Home

    The final step is to connect the generator to your home. Connecting the generator can be done by powering the circuit panel using the transfer switch. To prevent electrical shock, ensure proper grounding and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for connecting the generator.

    If you have a natural gas generator, you’ll also need to connect it to a gas line. If you’re not familiar with this process, hire a professional. Solar generators don’t require this step, as the power comes from plugging solar panels into the generator.

    Other fossil-fueled power generators, like gas and diesel generators, must be kept a safe distance away from the house and may present additional challenges for integrating with your existing electrical system.

    Installation is easy if you purchase a Whole Home Backup Power Solution like EcoFlow’s. Once you’ve connected the circuit breaker to the Smart panel, just hook up the DELTA Pro portable power station for simple, plug-and-play operation.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes. You can connect a portable generator to your home by plugging in each appliance individually or using a transfer switch to power a circuit panel. You should never connect a portable generator directly to the electrical panel; instead, route it through a transfer switch.

    Yes, it’s advisable to hire an electrician to connect a backup generator to your home. The only exception is if you’re proficient in working on your home’s electrical system. An electrician can advise on transfer switch selection, safely install the transfer switch, and ensure proper connection to the electrical panel.
