Ecoflow Delta or similar

    I am sorted for a generator for back up power and have a smallish solar array on my roof.

    My issue is that lugging a 100kg+ generator about for power down the far end of the garden is a bit overkill.

    The Ecoflow delta jobs look ideal. But they are ridiculously priced.

    Is there anything out there that provides similar for less cash?

    Ideally I'd like something that can store a bit more than the 1.2kWh the Delta has. I'm not at all interested in DIY solutions.

    Thanks in advance!

    looks heavy but not big? Stick it on something like a neat 15 euro trolley with some bicyle/bungee straps to hold it in place, ?

    Perhaps the way I phrased the question could have been better but I am not sure what you are suggesting.

    I am looking for a battery power pack so I don't have to lug the generator about rather than a means to lug a battery about.

    1260 Wh in that battery pack wont last long I fear

    I wonder if:

    You replaced your inverter with a hybrid one then you could use the batteries for backup power. Course that depends on whether you have batteries or not.


    Bought a small suitcase generator, they does be fairly light

    Cheers Big Lar,

    I don't do batteries at the moment, didn't really make sense as the array is small and I have an EV. The generator would run the house in times of prolonged outage.

    This would be just to pick up and get a half hours drilling or other general building work done. The genny is more than capable of powering this stuff but is hard to get over gravel and mud.

    I looked at the small generators but another genny is another device that needs fuel and maintenance. I was hoping the battery pack would just be a fire and forget item.
