If you run out of gas, someone shows up with a gas can and you can easily get to the nearest gas station. However, for EVs, it’s a different story, especially in rural areas. Unfortunately, rural areas have adopted around 40% fewer charging stations than urban areas.
For this reason, if you drive an electric vehicle, you need to have a backup plan. Fortunately, you might be able to bring clean power with you on the go! So, can the EcoFlow Delta Pro charge an electric car?
EcoFlow Delta Pro Output
The EcoFlow Delta Pro has a maximum output of 3,600W of continuous energy and up to a 7,200W surge. With a capacity of 3,600Wh, the system is the most powerful portable power station around. Also, the system can hold a full charge for over a year, so you won’t have to worry about it.
Electric Car Energy Needs
The average EV needs about 1 kWh for every 4 miles. That means that with 3.6 kWh of electricity, the EcoFlow Delta Pro could give you an average boost of up to 14 or 15 miles, which should be more than enough to find a charging station in most of the country.
If you need to get further than that to reach safety, you can use solar panels to continue charging your system. Once the battery is drained, it will charge more quickly, so keep the solar panels facing out the window while you attempt to drive toward safety.
While this demand varies depending on the model, the variances are rather slight. For example, a Nissan Leaf will run about 3.7 miles per kWh, whereas a Tesla Model 3 will run just over 4 miles per kWh.
How Long Will It Take to Charge?
To charge using the AC outlet, you will need the appropriate adapter (model-specific) and a ground adapter. To completely drain the Delta Pro battery, you will need between 2 and 2.5 hours to charge. If your Delta Pro is at half-capacity and you use 400W of solar input, you should still charge 3.6kWh within 4 to 5 hours.
However, you should keep in mind that this is the last resort. A backup portable charger designed for your EV will only get you a couple of miles. Just keep a spare charger in your vehicle at all times in case of the worst and plan ahead on your trips so you never have to use these tips!

The EcoFlow Delta Pro is a better option than any EV backup on the market. A standard 500W battery backup will only add around 2 miles to your range and it won’t allow for solar charging, whereas 12 to 15 miles with solar charging could save your life if you’re in a pinch.
