ECOFLOW DELTA 1300w SOLAR POWER STATION – Hey everyone, well, we’re sitting on the ground in the desert, testing out another power station. This is the Ecoflow EF Delta 1300 or something like that 1200, 1500, 1800. It’s 1800 peak anyways, and the 85 watts panel.

ECOFLOW DELTA 1300w SOLAR POWER STATION
So, I’m gonna share with you my thoughts. I’ve tested now, this is probably the fifth power station. So, got a lot of different experience with different ones. I’m excited to share with you my thoughts on this Ecoflow.
Ecoflow Delta 1300 First Impression
So, my first impressions of the Ecoflow where the packaging was really nice. The design, the logos, the buttons, the interface, where everything just seems very high tech and high quality, and it seems futuristic to me and a little bit less cheesy.
I will say that some of the power stations I’ve tested. Just as far as looks and feel, I was impressed the panel is a lot different as well. One thing that’s nice is, it does use standard solar panel plugs, this is nice that they don’t have any proprietary plugs.
It just depends what kind of plug style you like, but I do, you know I like that this has more options. You could plug this into a bunch more solar panels, and when you have that connection, you do have more options, first glance it looks like has six AC ports, but if you have the little pin in the middle, you’re only gonna be able to charge plug in 3.
I guess if you just have these prongs, you could do six, which is kind of cool. As you can see, I had a little bit of an issue plugging in the trailer, with this I had to try to couch it out, and I still wasn’t able to get the trailer powered up off of this, because it was an older plug that’s a 2003 trailer.
So, probably not gonna be an issue for most people, but it was a little bit of a hang-up for me. There are workarounds, I plugged this into. I have other power stations, so I just kind of transfer power from here to the others. If I wanted to run it for the trailer, of course, the cigarette lighter on.

This is awesome to run a fridge or something like that. The DC, and then on the other end, I like that they have four USBs on here as well as, two USB C’s, that’s awesome compared to the Jackery only has two USBs, and two of these USBs are also fast charge which is awesome.
I really like that, and the buttons are cool, the cover design, it’s a little bit rubbery of a bottom. You can have it on this rock, and you’re not gonna feel bad. These are all the charge ports here, they do use a proprietary charge for it a little bit. This is actually used a lot in our sea cars.
This is what we call in the RC car world, an XT 60 plug. If you know that much, you could actually wire up, use that to your advantage, and wire up your own kind of solar panels and things like that. Other than that, it’s got the AC here, but that’s DC and that’s AC. That’s what they use for the solar charges again the XT60 plug.
The EF Delta is a cool little unit. I do like how they have to grab handles here, as opposed to just one, you know it’s a little bit heavier than a Jackery for example. It’s nice to have the dual handles, but you don’t even need it. I mean it’s really not too heavy. You can grab it with one hand easily, and just kind of walk away nice with it.
Overall, I think this unit definitely has its advantages, and it’s fun to see the differences in how they’re. Really, all so different, but at the same time, they’re all very similar and you really can’t go wrong. I don’t think with any of these power stations out there.
These days, a lot of it, is the looks, the plugs, the function how many USBs, how many plugs it has is, is important. This one really shines with that. I will say, it is overall durability. I’ve had this thing with me through about 5,000 miles of my travels with the Jeep, and you know from Arizona through Nevada through California, Oregon in the snow in Washington, and it’s a trooper.
I mean, I am NOT easy on my equipment, and this thing has always worked when I needed it to. So, I really like it’s got its own little bag which is nice. They just kind of handles integrated into the panels. So that gives you a little bit more protection.
I also like the trifold of this, it packs up a lot smaller. It is an 85 watts panel, so not quite a hundred like we’re used to, but the only other thing too is, it doesn’t have anything in the back to hold it up. You could just set it against the panel. That works usually.
I have the power station behind the panels anyways, plugged in, and charging, that doesn’t really pose much of an issue. The other thing with the bag is, you got to figure out where to put the bag. Now, you could just leave it next to it, but it is a little bit more things. Overall, I think it’s nice to have this bag weight.
