My unit settings:
Quiet Charge (109-111 watts)
X-Boost to Off (limits volts)
Limit Charge to 80% (for longer battery life)
Unit Initial Test:
Charged with both solar port and AC cord
Discharged 50% of capacity (80%-30%)
Rate 50-Watts and 4.4-Amps
Consumed 0.41kWh (80% to 30%)
Sat for a few hours reading settled at 28%
Sat overnight with extra batt connected dropped to 25%
Charge time 6 hours (25% to 80%) at 110 watts
Room temperature 71*F Case temperature 73.5*F
One hour in standby reading of 80% settled to 78% charge (wireless off / no wireless symbol)
Overnight after second 80% charge reading settled at 79% (extra battery disconnected)
48 hours still holding 78%
- Small (aesthetically pleasing) - Lightweight - Mobile - Extremely fast to charge if needed
- Wireless was pain in the azz to setup.
- First parts to fail in my opinion will be the cable doors and extra battery cable (wobbly)
- Batteries rated at 500-800 cycles so I plan to AVOID high charge and discharge rates if at all possible (heat is the enemy).
Best UsesThe Eco Flow River Pro will be perfect for the tablet, phone, laptop, and my small battery chargers (AAA, AA, C, D, 9V).
I already have two other systems I built with parts and pieces. Four100Ah LiFePO4 batteries and two 2000W inverters mounted on an wheeled carts for my desktop, home theater, and refrigerator (1000 watts of solar and if I get desperate a 10kW gas generator)
