Ever since man learned to generate energy, we have always looked for ways to bottle up energy. We have always wanted to carry this “bottled energy” from place to place.
Like their name suggests, portable battery-powered stations run on clean energy and can be carried from place to place. Since us humans are so resourceful, we have more than one company presenting this solution to us. We will review and compare products from 2 of these companies – EcoFlow Delta 1300 and Jackery 1000 power station.
Making the best of choices comes with how much information you have. The EcoFlow Delta 1300 vs Jackery 1000 review offers a detailed exposition to making a better choice.
First, let me briefly introduce these two products EcoFlow Delta 1300 and Jackery 1000 power station. I wrote 2 previous article about the EcoFlow R600 Review and Jackery Portable Power Station Review please check out the link.
EcoFlow Delta 1300 Power Station
According to the company which produces EcoFlow Delta 1300, “EcoFlow Delta Power Station represents the new standard of battery-powered generators”. If you’re like me, you might not want to take their word for it, but they have a 4.5-star rating on Amazon.
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 has a 1300Wh capacity and a power of 1800W. It uses a unique X-STREAM patented charging technology to increase the charging speed from 0-80% in just 1 hour!
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 has a dual ceiling ventilation cooling mode which allows the heat generated by the inverter and BMS to dissipate in time.
Its application ranges from small to large household appliances, outdoor tools, and new energy vehicles.
Jackery 1000 Power Station
The Jackery 1000 is the biggest and most innovative power station and solar generator the Jackery Power Outdoors offers. It has a 4.9-star rating on Amazon.
Lightweight and small in size, the Jackery 1000 is by no mean small in power with two 220V sine wave AC output, 1000W rated output power, 2000W peak output power, and 278400mAh / 1002Wh battery energy.
The upper part of the middle and top of this wonder product is a backlit LCD digital display that shows the current percentage of power remaining and the specific power of the output (INPUT) output (OUTPUT). The Input supports a 220V power adapter input with Jackery’s 100W solar panels for outdoor play.
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 vs. the Jackery 1000
From the features of these beautiful marvels, it’s obvious they are both incredibly designed products designed with us – the consumer’s needs in mind. When these two products go head to head, however, which comes out on top?
We will compare both products under the following features: price, charging speed, power output, and weight & size.
The Jackery 1000 is slightly more expensive than the EcoFlow Delta 1300. The Jackery 1000 costs about $1500, while the EcoFlow Delta 1300 costs about $1400. I’ll say they are about even in this round with a slight margin for the EcoFlow Delta 1300.
Charging Speed Comparison
Fast charging is the main feature of EcoFlow Delta 1300. It can be fully charged within 2 hours, but the Jackery 1000 will takes about 7 to 8 hours to get full.
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 supports fast-charge technology, up to a maximum of about 1000W of charging power. This super speed however slowly decreases as the battery becomes full. After testing, it takes about 100 minutes to fill this DELTA 1000 outdoor power supply. The front-end TYPE-C connector uses a PD fast charging cable to charge the new iPhone at full speed of 18W. If you use it to charge your MacBook Air, you can reach up to 60W.
The Jackery 1000 does not support a fast charge. It takes about 6-7 hours to get fully charged from a zero charge. The Jackery 1000’s TYPE-C is only 18W high, so if you’re charging your laptop or 44W and other fast-charging Android phones, it’s best to plug in the original head on the 220V to charge it fastest.
If you’re going to stay in a tent for a few days, it’s best to buy 1-2 solar panels because it takes at least six or seven hours to fill the two outdoor power supplies with a car, and you can’t idle the car for 6-7 hours.
Both the EcoFlow Delta 1300 and the Jackery 1000 can be recharged with solar panels. The EcoFlow’s four oversized solar panels charge the Delta 1300 for up to four hours, while the Jackery 1000 takes at least 10 hours.
In this round, the EcoFlow Delta 1300 comes out clearly ahead.
Power Output Comparison
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 power is high with 1800W (camping with an induction cooker hot pot is fine), while the Jackery 1000’spower output is 1000W.
The Jackery 1000 power output is 1000W. As long as the appliances used with the Jackery 1000 consume less than 1000W, the device runs well enough. Once the power required is more than 1000W, you might be in a bit of a bind.
With a power output of up to 1800W, the EcoFlow Delta 1300 can power a hot pot at camp for up to three hours once the charge is over 30%.
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 wins this round once again.
Weight and Size Comparison
The EcoFlow Delta 1300 outdoor power supply has a three-ring size of 40 x 21 x 27cm, larger and heavier in size than the Jackery 1000 which weighs only 22ibs and comes with an easy carry handle.
The Jackery 1000 is the winner in terms of weight and size.
It is concluded that if you want to buy outdoor power through a period of use, then the following are the most important parameters: price, power, charging speed, and weight & size, which we have discussed in this article on EcoFlow Delta 1300 vs. Jackery 1000.
If I wanted a portable power station that is less heavy and easier to carry, would go for the Jackery 1000. For a portable power station with more power, I would go for the EcoFlow Delta 1300. If i wanted a faster charging speed, at less cost, I would go for the EcoFlow Delta 1300. I wonder which you will go for.
