Review EcoFlow RIVER Pro – My first impressions of this are pretty good. It’s a nice, solid package, it doesn’t feel cheapish or anything like that. This device has a 720-watt lithium-ion battery built with standard 18650 cells, and a 600-watt pure sine wave inverter, that can surge up to 1200 watts.

And taking a look at the front here, we have a small led light, we have 4 USB ports. The first is a USB-C rated for 100 watts, and the middle two are rated for 12 watts, and the blue port on the right is a USB quick charge rated for 28 watts. We have the on-off switch for the display, and we have a 12-volt accessory port. it’s the standard cigarette lighter port you’d see on an automobile, and then we have a few DC output jacks as well, and an on-off switch for those.

Taking a look at the right-hand side here, we have a small airflow grate with a fan, we have 3 AC output receptacles, and an on-off switch for the AC or inverter, and then down the bottom left here, we have an expansion power port. So, they actually sell an external battery, you can plug in with this to add an additional 720 watt-hours of storage, bringing the total to 1440 watt-hours.

3 x 600W AC OUTLETS AND 720Wh CAPACITY The RIVER Pro can power up to 10 devices simultaneously with multiple outlet options, including 3 pure sine wave AC outlets. It offers up to 720Wh power and it weighs just 15.9lbs, which makes it a portable power source for adventure on the go.

And taking a closer, look at that there are 2 banana pins on the top and bottom, and several pins in the center, which I assume are BMS or communications pins. Taking a look at the left-hand side of the device, we have a larger airflow grate on the bottom, and this lid here flips up. We have our AC input, we have a 10 amp overload protection circuit breaker, we have an XT60 plug for your solar PV input, and we have this small black screw here for grounding if you wish to ground or earth your device.

Review EcoFlow RIVER Pro – One thing that really stands out to me in this device is its super-fast recharge time. You can recharge this from zero to eighty percent in just one hour. If you remember several months ago, we had reviewed exactly and the Jackery had a recharge time of five to six hours. So, if this fast charge works like a design,  that will be a big win in my opinion.

Additionally, this device can be used as a UPS or uninterrupted power supply. So, we’ll be testing that capability as well.

All right, so there are a couple of cables that come with this device. First, we have the accessory port charger for the car, so it’s got an XT60 on one end, and then the standard cigarette plug, or whatever you want to call it. On the other end, we’ve got a DC power cable for the front. You would plug this into these two ports here, and then you can plug this into any 12-volt standard braille connector device.

The RIVER 600 portable power station is one of the most versatile solar generators in its class. Capable of running up to 10 devices simultaneously of its 3 x standard 110 volt AC outlets (standard wall outlets) & multiple USB, USB-C, and 12V ports.

We have a standard AC power cord, and it’s pretty cool they provide this particular cable. This is for the PV input, so we have the xt60 on one end, and then we have standard MC4s on the other end. I like that they provide this, because some of the other devices I have seen, such as the Jackery used a proprietary connector. So, if you want to connect your own panel, you would have to do that yourself.

This arrived at 22 states of charge, they never fully charge these things due to shipping regulations. All right, and it immediately turned on, and started charging here. It’s charging almost 400 watts already.  It’s still climbing 600 watts. It looks like it settled around 600 watts there which is interesting, because that is also the output of the inverter, and it’s estimating one hour from 23 to 100 state of charge.
