Both of these are their top end models with over 2000W power output. If you are looking for their mid-range 1000W versions, i.e Ecoflow Delta vs Jackery 1000, read this article

These are enough reasons why most people are scouring the internet for decent portable solar generators. While this is the case, choosing the right model can be a real challenge.

I’m pretty sure you’ve come across the two prominent players in the power station market – Jackery and EcoFlow. Let us see how their top models compete against each other.

Products being compared in this article are Jackery Explorer 2000 pro vs. EcoFlow Delta Pro

What’s in the Box?

Both models come in a huge box. The EcoFlow DELTA Pro alone is super heavy, weighing around 99 lbs. Expect the package to be humongous. It’s advisable to unbox and carry the battery unit first. 

Now you’re aware. So, what’s in the box?

First Impressions:

Jackery Explorer 2000 has a nice color combination that contributes to its industrial look. Besides that, it’s more compact than EcoFlow Delta Pro, making transportation somewhat bearable.

The power station weighs only 44lbs – around half the weight of Ecoflow Pro (against 99lbs). So it’s easier to carry from one location to another. I like the design of both power stations, which feel strong and durable.

Let’s study the physical and tech specs of each power station in the comparison chart below;

Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
Weight 43 lbs. (19.5 kg) 99lbs. (45 kg)
Number of Ports   10 ports 18 ports
Battery Type Lithium-ion Battery Lithium-ion Battery (LFP)
Warranty 3 years + 2 years extension offer 2 years + 3 years(register for extended warranty)
Solar Bundles Available? Yes (view here) Yes (view here)

Ports

Ecoflow Pro boosts a wide range of outdoor charging ports (3 input ports and 15 output ports – 18 in total). Meaning you can charge up to 15 devices at once. This explains why the generator is ideal for homeowners, campers, and those who like van life.  

You can’t write off Jackery 2000 pro in this case. The 10 ports (2 input ports, 8 output ports) the generator is packed with, could reliably support a ton of devices at all times. But overall, I’d give Ecoflow generator a nod. 

Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
Output ports  8 ports 15 ports
AC Power Outlets 3 outlets, 2200W total 5 outlets, 3600W total
USB-A Ports 2 ports, Quick Charge 3.0, 18W Max 4 ports (2 ports, 5V, 2.4A, 12W Max per port and 2 ports, 5V, 2.4A / 9V, 2A / 12V, 1.5A, 18W Max per port)
USB-C Ports 2 port, (5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 20V, 5A), 100W Max per port 2 ports, (5V,9V,12V,15V,20V, 5A), 100W Max per port

Car Charging 11V-17.5V  Support 12V/24V battery, 8A

Jackery does not provide a DC output port which is a bummer

Battery Capacity and Power

How much power can the battery supply? Battery capacity is the most important consideration when shopping for a portable generator. 

Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
Power 2200W 3600W
Battery capacity 2160Wh 3600Wh
Surge 4400W 7200W
Expandable Battery No  Yes (3.6kWh, 7.2kWh, 10.8kWh, 12.5kWh, 25kWh)
Lifecycle 1000 cycles to 80%+ capacity

6,500 cycles to 50% capacity, 3,500 cycles to 80% capacity

Price/Battery Cycle $2.09 $1.05

For their capacity, EcoFlow DELTA Pro takes it home with a higher inverter output, battery capacity, and surge capacity. With a 3600Wh battery and 3600W inverter power, you’ve got a portable power station that can juice up electronics, along with heavy-duty appliances such as microwaves, dryers, full-sized refrigerators, and so on. 

Jackery Pro, on the other hand, offers 2200W, 2160Wh which is massive. The power will impress during a two-day family trip. It will keep your devices fully charged for hours without a hitch.

The surge capacity of Ecoflow pro is 7200W while Jackery is 4400W. 

EcoFlow has created an ecosystem, where you can expand the battery capacity as and when needed using external batteries. This is a very useful feature as you can expand your capacity on the go.

EcoFlow Delta Pro comes with an LFP battery that can provide a staggering life cycle of  3,500 cycles to 80% capacity compared to Jackaery which provides just 1000 cycles to 80% capacity.

Note: Neither of these stations can be used as UPS. However, they can be used as EPS (emergency power supply). The reason is, unlike UPS, these stations have ~ 30ms switching. Some appliances may turn off during that duration. But I have successfully used Delta Pro as UPS to run projectors, air purifiers, etc. It’s just that old devices like TV’s, computers may reboot during the switching

Charging

Both power stations have multiple charging methods. Can be plugged directly into an AC outlet, car charging cable or using solar panels. 

Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
AC Wall Outlet 2 hours to fully charge 2.7 hours to fully charge
Solar Panels 1200W Solar Panel (2.5 hrs) 1600W 2.8-5.6 hours
Car Charger Yes (24 hours) Yes

Jackery 2000 pro boasts faster recharging times (Because of battery capacity). EcoFlow Pro stands no chance here. 

Jackery uses the same input port for solar and car charging. They provide a  convertible cable for solar charging

Jackery 2000 Pro vs Ecoflow Delta Pro – Which one is better?

Both units are great and come from very reputable dealers. Shout out to its impressive power as it can charge all your imaginable appliances, electronics, and power tools.

The choice depends on your power needs. Ecoflow Delta Pro has the upper hand in almost all categories – power, battery capacity, and output ports. At the same time, it is very expensive.

On the other hand, Jackery is compact, has lesser charging time, and is cheaper in cost.

Choose EcoFlow Delta Pro if:

  • Want a high-end power station (for home power backup, running power tools, mobile workers, RV/Van life etc)
  • Expand battery capacity so you will have the option to add more batteries later
  • Run more devices simultaneously
  • Long-lasting (battery cycles are very important. You don’t want the station to lose efficiency after a year or two)
  • You don’t care about noise (Delta Pro makes a lot of noise, its annoying)
  • I recently saw Delta Pro for $2599.99 on Amazon. If so, Delta Pro is a steal deal

Choose Jackery 2000 Pro if:

  • Your use case is limited ( emergency backup for a few hours, outdoor events, camping, etc)
  • Looking for a compact power station (portability is good to have. Delta Pro lacks it)
  • Hard pressed on budget (you can save over $1000 compared to Delta Pro)
