While clarity on the end of load shedding remains elusive, South Africans remain on the lookout for affordable and reliable power solutions for their homes. The inconveniences brought by power outages are currently worse as the country goes through a bitterly cold winter.
Apart from heating, ordinarily, people will want to keep their lights on as well as have access to entertainment through television and personal devices such as smartphones and laptops, and to have the WiFi router on.
As a result of the above urgent needs, the market is flooded with a myriad of power supply sytems and devices promising solutions to the desperate public. This too has added to the headache of the consumers as they don’t know which systems and brands to trust as money is also too tight to make costly mistake.
Ecoflow River 2 is here to chase the blues away. The portable power stations (PPS) are versatile as they can be used outdoors, including in camping outings because fast AC in-car charging is possible when you re on the go.
Weighing just 3.5kg, this device is easy to carry anywhere. The Ecoflow River 2 power station can keep your devices going for hours while waiting for your round of loadshedding to end so that you can charge again. The noiseless lithium battery can fully charge in under an hour (the fastest charge time on the market), and be ready for next round of load-shedding.
The Ecoflow River 2 Portable Power Station boasts the following specifications: 256Wh LFP battery, 300W output, 110W solar input and socket suitable for SA plugs. Apart from the socket, River 2 also have charge ports for numerous devices and can be recharged using anything from a normal wall socket to a USB-C charge point or even the sun.
Power for the fidge
Life is not about entertainment only. During load-shedding the fridges go off too, which means food always face threat to its freshness. The Ecoflow River 2 can change that, by being brought closer to the fridge or via an extension cord so that the fridge can be plugged into the power station’s socket and also depends on the size of the fridge.
Where to buy Ecoflow PPS models?
Both River 2 and River 2 Max can be purchased from all reliable power equipment stockists such as hardware wholesalers like Builders, retail giants such as Makro or at online shopping platforms such as Takealot.
