Read the review: EcoFlow RIVER 2 review

With a capacity of 256Wh, the RIVER 2 is small enough to be portable, but powerful enough to run a 100W load for close to 2.5 hours. The AC output can handle a sustained output of 300W (which would drain the RIVER 2 in under an hour) and surge loads up to 600W.

In my experience using it, the EcoFlow RIVER 2 is rugged and well-built and shrugs off the knocks and bumps of everyday use.
