EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra 1

REVIEW – When I first started reviewing power stations, I tested various models and did not have a preference or favorite brand. That was until I reviewed a few EcoFlow Power Stations and became a huge fan. Currently, several EcoFlow Power Stations are used around my home to provide daily or backup power for various devices or appliances. For example, some time ago, I reviewed the 2 x EcoFlow Delta Pro Power Stations, and from that time we still run our washing machine and a couple of other smaller appliances totally off the power grid. That experience and savings in electricity cost fueled my next adventure which was my review of the EcoFlow Delta 2 Max with the add-on battery that allowed me to power some of the devices in my home office/studio totally off the grid. For that review, I showed how I added some solar panels in my backyard, to ensure that the Power Station and add-on battery were recharged as often as possible. Of course, I was not satisfied with just being able to power some of the devices in my home office off the grid. I wanted a solution from EcoFlow that would allow me to take my entire home office off the grid. Enter the EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra.

What is it?

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra is a powerful whole-home power backup solution designed to provide electricity during power outages or used as a daily power source. It features a capacity of 6kWh, 7200W output, and a 5.6kW solar input. There is also the option to use the EcoFlow Smart Home Panel 2, for an uninterrupted automatic power switch-over from the power grid when an outage occurs. The recharging options include AC power, solar, and gas.

Assembly, Installation, Setup

The biggest challenge with assembling the EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra is managing the weight, especially if you are a one-man show like me. Each component is heavy but assembly only requires adding the casters to the base, placing the battery correctly on the base, and the inverter on the battery.

Performance

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra is a great performer in every sense of the work. I have the starter kit, and all I needed to do to get going was to place one on top of the other and connect them. Next, I charged it fully via AC, then routed all the devices in my home studio to the AC outlets and a couple to the USB outlets. Since I have a lot of devices running in my studio, I used a Tripp Lite Isobar 8 Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip connected to 3 of the AC outlets for a total of 24 devices being powered by those 3 outlets. Keep in mind that a lot of network and studio equipment is connected, so the Delta Pro Ultra powers them with no issue. There is a constant draw of about 250 Watts.

I have the AC port that charges the Ultra connected to a Hubspace programmable outlet so that I can schedule the recharging of the Ultra even if I am away. Unfortunately, I have to do this because I do not yet have the required panels to keep the Delta Pro Ultra changed which would accomplish the goal of having my studio off-grid. I am still keeping my fingers crossed that EcoFlow will send me 2 of their kits of the (2) x 400W Rigid Solar Panels so that I can complete my mission. It would probably take 4 x 400 W panels to do the trick. Otherwise, it will be sometime in the future before I can afford the panels that would be needed to keep the Delta Pro Ultra charged.

App:

I now have several EcoFlow devices, so I am very familiar with the app and use it to manage my other devices. Adding the Delta Pro Ultra to the app is simple and provides all the information it does for the other Power Stations. The following are a few of the Ultra screenshots from the app:

What I like about the EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra

  • The beautiful sleek design
  • The number and variety of connectivity
  • The expansion ability
  • The power capacity
  • The charging options
  • Every piece of equipment is well-built

What needs to be improved?

  • I wish the outlet covers on the front slid in and out of the way like those on the side.

Final thoughts

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra power station is my next natural step as I continue to convert more of my home to 100% off the power grid. This device is IMHO the nicest and sleekest device to date. I love the look and that it is well-built, and the expansion capability, albeit not cheap, puts me in the driver’s seat as I progress. I do wish that I could have been able to review 2 EcoFlow solar panels as well to show the entire process, capability, and success, but that will have to wait until I can afford to purchase them or if EcoFlow is kind enough to send them and provide me with the ability to complete the “off-grid” process. As always, this is another excellent product from EcoFlow.

    I just received my Delta Pro Ultra and Smart Home Panel 2 system. The SHP2 was installed last week, but the electrician needs to come back and make a few adjustments.

    Overall, I am very happy with the operation and build of the system. Any complaints I have are with the installation and the frustration of not getting my grid tied solar system to connect so it can charge the batteries during a blackout, but those are not a fault of EcoFlow.

    While the panel was being installed, I connected my wiring closet and my home office computers to the inverter using extension cables. I didn’t record the usage at the time, but it said it could run that equipment from a single fully charged battery for approximately 20 hours. That includes:
    Ubiquiti Dream Machine Pro
    Ubiquiti 16 port POE switch
    Frontier FIOS gear (never looked in that panel)
    Mac Studio M2 Max
    Dell Ultrawide monitor
    Dell 27″ monitor
    2 Dell Optiplex 9020’s (mainly at idle)
    misc extra accessories

    After connecting to the smart panel and protecting various circuits, the one battery will probably give those circuits about 3-7 hours of power without any additional management.

    The app has the ability to help shift some electricity usage so the battery can charge from solar during daylight and then power the protected circuits for part of the night. Adding more batteries would increase the runtime.

    I’d love to be able to add additional inverter/battery stacks so that I could run my central air conditioning during the HOT Texas summers, but I’ll settle for running my bedroom window unit on a protected circuit when needed.

    I don’t yet have the Smart Home Panel 2 connected to a generator input which would allow me to recharge the system during an outage with my 12Kw generator, but hoping that will be completed this week.

    Again, overall, I’m happy with the system as it is, but will need to expand it in the coming years to get the coverage I really want.
