EcoFlow DELTA 2 vs Anker 757 PowerHouse vs Jackery Explorer 1000 Pro Compared – A new, more affordable LiFePO4 portable power station

Sharing is caring!

I love my Jackery Explorer 1000, but just like electric cars, it would seem the trend of portable power stations is starting to shift towards using Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4).

Bluetti has multiple LiFePO4 portable power stations, including the relatively affordable EB70 priced at around £699. Recently Anker launched the 757 PowerHouse using LiFePO4, which is their largest power station at 1229Wh.

Now EcoFlow has launched the new DELTA 2, which shifts from Li-ion NMC to LiFePO4.

LiFePO4 vs Li-ion NMC Portable Power Station Batteries

The reason for this trend is that the LiFePO4 have significantly better longevity than the older Li-ion batteries. A LiFePO4 can typically be charged 3000 times before the capacity reduces to 80%. In comparison, Li-ion NMC will normally hit 80% capacity at just 500 cycles.

There is a bit of a downside to this, LiFePO4 batteries have a lower charge density than Li-ion NMC, so the batteries need to be physically larger for the same charge. In general, for portable power stations and electric cars, this is a price work paying.

EcoFlow DELTA 2 vs Anker 757 PowerHouse vs Jackery Explorer 1000 Differences

The EcoFlow DELTA 2 is extremely competitive compared to the two other big names in the business.

The DELA 2 is has a unique ability to be expanded. You can get the DELTA 2 extra battery to reach 2048Wh, or add on the DELTA Max Extra Battery to hit 3040Wh.

Anker is a bit odd because they have a 256Wh and 512Wh Li-ion NMC battery, then the new flagship LiFePO4 1229Wh Anker 757 PowerHouse.

The EcoFlow DELTA 2 is 28.5% cheaper than the Anker but is only 16.6% smaller in capacity, which I think makes it good value for money.

It only has 4 plug sockets vs 6, but it can do 1800W total, and using the X-boost function, this goes up to 2400W, outclassing all other brands.

Furthermore, the surge protection is also higher at 2700W. The list of pros continues too; the DELTA 2 has 2x 100W USB-C ports, a valuable addition to anyone that wants to work on a laptop remotely.

It can also handle up to 500W solar input, while the Anker is limited to 300W and the Jackery 200W.

One big downside vs the Anker is that you only get a 2-year warranty vs 5, but I think the price difference justifies this.

It is worth noting that Jackery isn’t resting on their laurels. In the US, you can pre-order the new Jackery Explorer 1000 Pro for $1,099. They don’t make the battery technology clear, but its lifecycle is twice as good as the none-pro model I have, USB-C has been upgraded to 100W, solar input goes up to 800W, and you get a 3 year warranty.
