EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra: A Remarkable Power Solution

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra battery and inverter unit is available now for $4,999, with the Smart Home Panel 2 available at $1,599 or bundled together for $6,399. The single unit has a 6kWh capacity, 7200W output, and 5.6kW of solar input, allowing it to run an entire home, especially when stacked with other units for increased capacity.

The Delta Pro Ultra is decidedly an expensive solution for a home backup system and though portable, its hefty weight could affect portability. A whole-home power backup system is a must for many, especially those in an area that’s often affected by hurricanes or other natural disasters. But a backup system like the brand new EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra can be the perfect fit if you just want to make the switch to solar energy, want a backup in case of emergency, or want to shave a little money off your energy bill.

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra can be strong enough to power a home on its own but can be combined with several batteries as a whole-home backup solution. The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra can be charged through AC power, solar panels, and gas generators. Solar energy users can use the DPU with existing rooftop solar panels or with flexible solar panels, so you could potentially go off the grid for days at a time and continuously charge your EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra with solar energy. The DPU allows for a solar input of up to 16.8kWh, which lets users connect up to 42 400W solar panels. The Smart Home Panel 2 has 12 loads of circuit level control, and we used each one to ensure the Delta Pro Ultra serves as a backup for what we need in our home during an outage. Since the EcoFlow allows for stacking, you could potentially scale up to 90kWh to power essential appliances for over a month. The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra’s biggest downside is that it’s not a small start-up cost. But considering how expensive traditional generators for whole-home backup can get, not to mention follow-up maintenance costs, it’s a good investment that could lead to potential savings down the line, especially when combined with solar panels.

The DPU requires no maintenance, can run indoors safely, and its LFP battery and cooling system ensures temperature control. As far as alternative uses for the DPU, you could even start a solar panel setup for your home on your own terms with flexible solar panels that can be set up anywhere, use it as a power supply for an RV or off-the-grid cabin, or plug it into your home’s manual transfer switch.
