EcoFlow shows us the potential of its technology with three surprising products
EcoFlow, the specialist in energy storage devices, has decided to use its technology in new products. For CES 2023, they are unveiling a chubby robot, an air conditioner and a refrigerator.
Do you know EcoFlow? The Chinese brand produces a variety of energy storage devices. These include power plants, also known as energy station or power stations, which can also be charged through solar panels.
Among the popular products there are the EcoFlow Delta 2, the River 2… In fact, the range of products is already very wide. These products offer a solution in different situations: for nomads, it is a transportable source of energy capable of being recharged by solar panels, at home, it can also be turned into it is possible not to rely 100% on the external network. To save money, for example.
Finally, there’s no telling when the world will end, especially if the Doomsday Clock is 100 seconds past midnight. But, on a less dramatic note, storms and energy crises can lead to power outages.
EcoFlow products were particularly highlighted, with the risk of power outages in France, the recent winter storm in North America, and especially in the context of the war in Ukraine.
The EcoFlow brand relies on a variety of battery technologies, including LiFePO4 (LFP) batteries. This is the exact chemical composition of the battery that is in the Model 3 Propulsion. The lithium iron phosphate battery allows 3,000 charge cycles before the capacity drops below 80%.
With the aim of diversifying its product portfolio, EcoFlow therefore has three products to announce at CES 2023.
EcoFlow is proud to manufacture the world’s first robot lawn mower. We don’t really understand the subtleties of the terms chosen in the press release, because robot mowers already exist.
Here, the EcoFlow Blade is therefore an autonomous robot mower, capable of mapping a garden and taking care of mowing the lawn in full autonomy. The mobile application offers the possibility of limiting areas that do not exceed, for example, as seen in robot vacuum cleaners.
The subtlety here is that the Blade is 4G compatible via eSIM to travel long distances beyond Wi-Fi range.
The EcoFlow Glacier is a portable refrigerator equipped with an integrated ice maker. It makes 18 small ice cubes in just 12 minutes, and can last up to 24 hours (297 Wh) on a single charge to keep food fresh.
Also, as you can see, it can be transported with small wheels. Everything is, of course, connected to the EcoFlow application.
EcoFlow Wave 2
EcoFlow is also launching the second generation of its portable air conditioner, which is now reversible (it can also heat).
This product can provide up to 5,100 BTU of cooling power (compared to 4,000 BTU for the first) and is suitable for small rooms or tents. The heating power is estimated at 6,100 BUT.
The Wave can last up to 8 hours and charge in less than two hours. It can also be powered by solar panels or connected to other charging stations to extend its autonomy. The set weighs 14 kg, which is in fact a transportable air conditioner.
There are no prices for these products, for now, EcoFlow aims to have availability in spring 2023 for the lawn robot as well as the refrigerator, and this summer 2023 for the air conditioner.
