ElecHive 2200 Portable Power Station Review

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Power stations are handy machines that will make sure you’ll always have power whenever you need it. They are quieter, smaller, and more convenient than traditional gas generators. Not to mention that they are a lot cheaper too in the long run. So it’s not surprising why there’s such a huge demand for them.

Just recently, we did a review on the brilliant LEOCH battery power station, which received more than a whopping US$8,600,000 in Indiegogo. And now there’s the ElecHive 2200, which is also raking in a lot of dough on the same crowdfunding site. To date, it has already received more than US$2,558,000 in funding. Learn more about this new power station here.

Overview

The problem with many power stations today is that they can be either underpowered or just too big and heavy. ElecHive aims to solve this by putting a powerful battery into a small body. And the result? A super-portable power station that won’t run out on you when you need it the most, wherever and whenever.

In terms of price, the ElecHive is affordable too. Offered at US$1,399 on Indiegogo, it is cheaper than other power stations with almost the same rated power output, including the Bluetti AC200P (US$1,999.99) and Goal Zero Yeti 3000X.

Features

Many Output Ports

You can charge up to 12 devices simultaneously with the ElecHive. It features 5 different port options, including USB-A, 110V AC, 12V DC, USB-C, and a 180W car charging port. So you can power a wide range of appliances and devices, such as power tools, medical devices, and even a full-sized refrigerator anywhere you are.

Multiple Charging Options

The ElecHive is designed to charge from as many options as possible. You can charge it with your car, solar panels, a dedicated charger, or with the company’s 1250W professional charger. For faster charging, you can combine three charging inputs to have it fully charged in less than 3 hours. Or you can use the professional charger to fill it up in just 2 hours.

Latest Battery Tech

ElecHive features an integrated Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (tiNiMnCoO2), or also known as an NMC, which makes its battery pack smaller and lighter than those of traditional power stations. While this tech costs more, it gives the ElecHive greater energy density. Meaning, it doesn’t have to compromise power and capacity for mobility and portability.

High Battery Capacity

The ElecHive 2200 is packed with a massive 2,500Wh battery capacity. This is higher than Bluetti AC200P, which has a 2000Wh capacity. At this rate, you can charge your phone 203 times, laptop 48 times, and DSLR camera 135 times. This also allows you to run your TV for 25 hours or even your full-size refrigerator for 44 hours. You can use it as an emergency backup for your electric vehicle too, providing you up to 10 extra miles on a single charge.

Suitable for All-Season

This power station can support external temperatures from -4°F to 104°F. So you can expect it to function in all weather conditions, including cold winters. Since it is equipped with a powerful fan, optimized air duct, redesigned airflow, and expanded vents, it can also work at peak performance even in the summer without overheating or making noise. The ElecHive runs efficiently and quietly, having a noise level of less than 30dB.

With a rated power of 2,200W, the ElecHive has the same power output as your standard wall socket. This makes it suitable for use with heavy-duty tools and appliances, including circular saws, hairdryers, and even your electric car. You can also easily use it with your lights, drones, TVs, CPAP machines, projectors, and other gadgets. The Type C PD is also a nice addition, allowing you fast charging for your MacBook and other power-hungry laptops.

Aesthetics

What makes the ElecHive 2200 unique from other power stations today is its compact size. It is surprisingly light and small even with its massive battery capacity. At 34lbs, it is lighter than the Bluetti AC200 (52lbs) and Goal Zero Yeti 1500X (45.64lbs). It’s also twice as light as the LEOCH power station.

Conclusion

With its portability and capacity, it’s almost impossible to find a machine that’s as small and as powerful as the ElecHive 2200. Its high battery capacity and power output can provide you the power you’ll need while outdoors and in emergencies. Convenient, efficient, functional, and considering its price, this power station is a great steal.

Take note, however, that the ElecHive 2200 is still untested.
