Size and Design

At about 24 pounds, the EcoFlow Delta Mini is both lightweight and compact enough for a single person to carry it from place to place easily. The integrated top handles help with this, too, and without adding much to its overall dimensions. It’s small enough to fit easily in a car trunk, or even to rest between the seats for recharging while you travel. This also makes it easy to store unobtrusively in your home for emergency preparedness.

Outlets and Power

There are inputs on both the front and rear panels of the EcoFlow Delta Mini. It has far more outlet options than most power stations at this size, with 5 pure sine wave AC outlets and 3 DC charging ports on the rear panel. On the front panel, you’ll find both USB-A and USB-C outputs, including an 18W Fast Charge port for quickly recharging phones or tablets.

The EcoFlow Delta Mini can put out 1,400 watts of power in standard mode, or up to 1,800 watts using the X-Boost function. That’s enough that it can handle full-sized appliances, power tools, and other heavy-duty equipment.

As far as how long it can run these appliances, that depends on the device. Its 882 watt hour capacity is enough to run a 40-watt device like a CPAP machine for about 13 hours, or give you 30-60 minutes of use from higher wattage equipment like saws, electric grills, or kitchen appliances like microwaves and blenders.

Pros

  • High capacity for its size
  • Capable of running large appliances and power tools
  • Simultaneously powers up to 12 devices
  • Compact and portable design
  • Multiple recharging methods (solar, AC outlet, or car outlet)
  • Recharge to 80% in less than an hour with X-Stream charging

Cons

  • Relatively short run time for high-wattage devices
  • Long recharging time through car outlet

Recharging

There are three ways to recharge the Delta Mini. The fastest method is to use an AC outlet with the X-Stream option, which can refill it from empty to about 80% in less than an hour. It’s also relatively fast to recharge using solar panels, recharging to 100% in as little as 3 hours with the right array and sun conditions. It takes a bit longer to recharge it through a car outlet, as much as 9-10 hours to fill from empty, so this is mostly an option you’ll want to save for when you’re actively on the road.

Monitoring and Control

EcoFlow Delta Mini connections

The light-up display on the front of the EcoFlow Delta Mini makes it easy to see how much power it has left and the current incoming and outgoing watts, even when you’re using it outdoors at night. It also pairs with the EcoFlow app, letting you monitor its power use and control the power station through your phone.

The Bottom Line: EcoFlow Delta Mini Review

While the EcoFlow Delta Mini doesn’t quite have the power to run a whole home’s electricity during outages and emergencies, we wouldn’t expect that capacity from a power station of this size. It’s an ideal option for camping, road trips, or RV travel, small enough to take with you easily but powerful enough to be useful on the go (>>> Check on Amazon).

FAQs

Can I increase the capacity of the EcoFlow Delta Mini?

Unfortunately no. The other power stations in the EcoFlow Delta line (the Max and Pro) can be expanded, however, if you are looking for a power station with a larger capacity.

What type of solar panels should I use with the EcoFlow Delta Mini?

The Delta Mini can accept up to 300W of input through solar panels. For the fastest solar charging, it’s recommended to connect it to two 160-watt solar panels. Since it has an integrated MPPT controller, it’s compatible with any brand of solar panel.

What safety features are built in to the EcoFlow Delta Mini?

The Delta Mini has an integrated battery management system. This includes over voltage, low voltage, and overcurrent proection, as well as protection against extreme high or low temperatures, overloads, and short circuits.
