EcoFlow, the energy storage specialist, has decided to use its technology in new products. At CES 2023, they unveil a clumsy robot, an air conditioner, and a refrigerator.
Do you know EcoFlow? The Chinese brand produces various energy storage devices. This includes power plants, also known as power plant or power stations that can also be charged via solar panels.
Popular products include the EcoFlow Delta 2, the River 2… In fact, the range of products is already very wide. These products offer a solution to different situations: for nomads, it is a transportable source of energy that can be charged by solar panels and can also allow at home not to be 100% dependent on the external grid. For example to save money.
After all, there’s no telling when the world will descend into chaos, especially when the doomsday clock is 100 seconds past midnight. But, less dramatically, Storms and energy crises can cause power outages.
EcoFlow products were particularly highlighted, with the risk of power outages in France, the recent winter storm in North America and in particular related to the war in Ukraine.
The EcoFlow brand relies on various battery technologies, including LiFePO4 (LFP) batteries, which have the exact chemistry of the Model 3 Propulsion battery. This lithium iron phosphate battery allows 3,000 charging cycles before the capacity drops below 80%.
With the aim of diversifying its product portfolio, EcoFlow therefore had three products to announce at CES 2023.
EcoFlow prides itself on having developed the world’s first robot lawn mower. We didn’t really understand the intricacies of the terms used in the press release, because robotic lawnmowers already exist.
The EcoFlow Blade is therefore an autonomous robotic lawnmower that is able to map a garden and take care of mowing the lawn completely autonomously. The mobile application offers the possibility of delimiting areas that should not be crossed, such as those found in vacuum cleaner robots.
The nice touch here is that the blade is 4G compatible via eSIM to be able to travel long distances beyond Wi-Fi coverage.
The EcoFlow Glacier is a portable refrigerator with an integrated ice maker. It produces 18 small ice cubes in just 12 minutes and can last up to 24 hours (297Wh) on a single charge to keep food fresh.
As you can see, it can also be transported with small wheels. Everything is of course linked to the EcoFlow application.
EcoFlow wave 2
EcoFlow is also launching the second generation of its portable air conditioner, which is now reversible (so it can also heat).
This product can provide up to 5,100 BTUs of cooling capacity (compared to 4,000 BTUs for the first unit) and is suitable for small rooms or tents. The heating capacity is estimated at 6,100 A.
The Wave can last up to 8 hours and charges in less than two hours. It can also be powered by solar panels or connected to other charging stations to extend its autonomy. The set weighs 14 kg, which actually corresponds to a portable air conditioner.
There are no prices for these products for the time being, EcoFlow is aiming for availability in spring 2023 for the robot lawn mower and the refrigerator and this summer 2023 for the air conditioning system.
