Due to the success of the launch giveaway on Recharged, EcoFlow South Africa have generously sponsored yet another River 2 portable power station to tie up 2023.

This competition is open to all readers who are subscribed to the Tech Things newsletter, which you can find here: https://nafisaakabor.substack.com/

Given that load shedding is still not going anywhere in South Africa, the River 2 would make the perfect companion for the December holidays and beyond. With the frequent power cuts, the main reason to want an EcoFlow is the recharge time – the River 2 will recharge in an insane 60 minutes!

This portable 3.5kg unit has dimensions of 24.5cm x 21.4cm x 14.2cm, which you can easily pop into your car and take it to the beach, picnics, or to social visits. You could even use it to connect a battery operated fan in this current heat wave we are experiencing in South Africa.

  • 256Wh or 80 000mAh battery capacity
  • 300W output (X-boost up to 600W)
