If you've been mulling over on owning a lightweight and compact power station this year, Amazon has a sale throughout different brands, including entries from EcoFlow. Currently, the EcoFlow River 2 series with advanced LFP battery is on sale at $189 or 21 percent off from the regular listing of $239.

To take advantage of the deal, you need to apply the coupon amounting to $50 before checking out at Amazon. The reduced price is also lower compared to what's EcoFlow is offering at their online store.

Why the EcoFlow River 2 is a recommended portable power station

Weighing at 7.7 lb (3.5 kg), the EcoFlow River 2 is one of the lightest power stations out there, making it easy to carry and transport on outdoor camping trips. The backup power cube itself has a bright front-facing LCD screen mated to a pair of AC outlets, DC socket, and USB ports. Plus, it can be charged via the standard wall outlet or through solar panels. 

EcoFlow's River 2 comes with a 256 Wh batter capacity and has a 600 watts power rating that is enough to power most appliances at home. Its cells are made of LFP or lithium iron phosphate, which gives it a longer life span and fast charging capabilities. Ecoflow says the station can retain 80 percent of its battery health after 3000 charging cycles.

Furthermore, the drop-proof River 2 supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, so you can manage it remotely from your mobile phone. It also has a smart battery management system to protect the unit from sudden spikes in voltages and temperatures.

Similar to the more expensive EcoFlow models, the River 2 gets a 5-year service warranty. This is in addition to the battery cells estimated to last 10 years with regular usage.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
