EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra
The EcoFlow Detla Pro Ultra hit stores in January 2024 as an upgrade to the brand’s best-selling flagship model, the Delta Pro, which has been a strong presence in the portable and home power market for a couple of years.
The Delta Pro Ultra, as you may know, is a dedicated whole-house home battery that can be the brand’s competitor to Zendure SuperBase V, Bluetti’s EP900, Anker’s Solix F3800, and Goal Zero Yeti 1400 Pro.
The new model in the Delta series is a massive 6 kWh/90 kWh power station. Starting with a single battery of 6 kWh, you can add up to 15 units to take its capacity to the maximum and ensure backup power for your entire house, EV, and more. As per the brand, for a standard American household, a fully-capacity Delta Pro Ultra can provide backup power for up to 30 days.
|Update: January 2024: EcoFlow launched its brand-new Delta Pro Ultra in the USA and Canada on January 9, 2024.
November 1, 2023: The Detla Pro Ultra Release Date Update: EcoFlow has announced the release date of the next generation of its much-loved Delta Pro home battery pack. The new model will hit stores on January 9, 2024.
EcoFlow has announced the arrival of a new whole-house solar battery called the EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra, perhaps the next generation of the brand’s famous Dleta Pro battery.
The new battery is to feature a massive 6-90 kWh capacity and an incredible output of 7.2-21.6 kWh at 120 and 240 volts.
The Delta Pro Ultra was on display at IFA 2023 in Germany.
Why the Delta Pro Ultra?
The inverter output the Delta Pro Ulta offers is a whopping 7200 watts, with a peak capacity of up to 10800 watts for 10 seconds.
Pairing the machine with the brand’s new Smart Panel 2, you can triple the inverter output up to a matchless 21600 watts, giving you a chance to run the entire household appliances, including a 3-ton air conditioner, from the backup power in case of a prolonged outage.
(Fine, you can connect three Delta Pro Ultra inverters to a single SP2, and each inverter can be attached to five battery packs.)
Likewise, you can also increase the solar input of the battery up to three times with an incredible combination of high- and low-voltage inputs.
Well, with a single unit of the Delta Pro, you can achieve a solar input of up to 5600 watts, while as you pair three units together, you can triple it up to an unparalleled 16800 watts, which makes it collect the backup power for an entire day with an hour’s sunlight, using as many as 42 units of 400-watt solar panels.
EcoFlow Delta Pro History
EcoFlow launched the first-generation Delta Pro in 2021, and it has been one of the most successful products of the brand since then. All other brands, including Bluetti, Jackery, Anker, and even Goal Zero, later launched impressive competitors to the Delta Pro.
Goal Zero’s brand-new Yeti 4000 Pro is one of the recent launches to defy the dominance of the Delta Pro in both the portable and home battery markets. The new Goal Zero highlights increased battery capacity and better solar and AC charging inputs.
Bluetti has indeed been raising big threats to the Delta Pro with its AC300, AC500, and EP800 battery packs. When Bluetti has multiple exclusive home battery setups like the EP800 and EP900, EcoFlow has been offering the Delta Pro as both the portable and home battery system for a while.
Zendure SuperBase V Series
The SuperBase V is a series of massive plug-and-play home power backup systems from Zendure, which is well-known for its compact power station, the SuperBase Pro. The highly modular solar power stations come in two variants: SuperBase V 6400 and SuperBase V 4600, respectively, featuring a base capacity of 6.4 kWh and 4.6 kWh for their battery packs.
The biggest of the series, the SuperBase V 6400, features a unique semi-solid-state battery, while its younger sibling has the standard LiFePO4 battery pack. Both models are scalable, and the former is expandable up to a colossal 64 kWh using the brand’s 6.4 kWh B6400 Satellite expansion modules that also sport the same semi-solid-state battery packs.
The heavy-duty SuperBase V 6400 integrates a 3800-watt inverter, and two units of the devices can be paired to get an output of 7600 watts at 240 volts, which can smoothly run your entire household, and it will remarkably work with your existing sub-panel for solar power.
As per Zendure, with just a cable, you will be able to upgrade your home backup system to SuperBase V to enjoy complete power independence.
The SuperBase V is also going to break industry touchstones with a massive 6600W dual recharging that includes a 3000W MPPT solar charging input, which is the fastest ever in the industry.
With these top-rated specs, the Zendure will pose a big threat to EcoFlow and Bluetti in the market for modular home battery backups.
