The Wave is the first portable air conditioner to balance cooling performance, portability, and battery life
LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- EcoFlow, a portable power and renewable energy solutions company, today launched the EcoFlow Wave Portable Air Conditioner. With the largest cooling capacity among battery-powered portable air conditioners, the EcoFlow Wave offers eight hours* of run time and four flexible charging methods within a sleek, compact design that comes in at under 40 pounds, making it ideal for camping set-ups, RVs, and small apartments and cabins.
Founded in 2017, EcoFlow is known for its innovations in the energy storage sector with its industry-leading portable power stations and renewable energy solutions. The EcoFlow Wave is EcoFlow's first electrical appliance and marks a major expansion in its overall ecosystem.
"EcoFlow's vision goes beyond providing continuous, sustainable electricity," said Thomas Chan, R&D Director of EcoFlow. "We also want to offer the best living experience, anchored in a comfortable environmental temperature, by building a complete ecosystem which not only addresses power generation and storage, but usage as well. The EcoFlow Wave Portable Air Conditioner is the first step towards this goal."
Superior cooling performance
With an industry-leading 4,000BTU (British Thermal Unit) cooling capacity, the EcoFlow Wave only requires eight minutes to lower the temperature in an 86ft² (8m²) space from 84℉ to 75℉ (30℃ to 24℃).
Unlike traditional air conditioners, the EcoFlow Wave has low temperature fluctuations. Its built-in inverter compressor keeps the output at a steady level, ensuring a continuous cooling experience that consumes less energy.
Multiple charging methods
To minimize the difficulty of charging outdoors, the EcoFlow Wave offers an industry-leading selection of charging methods including wall sockets, portable power stations, car charging, and solar panels.
As part of EcoFlow's ecosystem, the EcoFlow Wave offers 28% longer running time under the same settings when connected to EcoFlow's DELTA Pro or DELTA Max, compared to when it is powered by other brands' portable power stations with the same capacities.
Smart Battery Allocation Algorithm
The EcoFlow Wave allows users to set their desired run times of up to eight hours, enough for a good night's sleep, via the EcoFlow app or the timer button on the unit. With its Smart Battery Allocation Algorithm, it calculates the best running method of operations and alternates between cooling mode and fan mode based on the battery level. By doing so, the Smart Battery Allocation Algorithm can, at most, double the run time of the EcoFlow Wave.
Portable and easy to use
Weighing just under 40 pounds (17.5 kilograms) with an add-on battery that weighs approximately 16 pounds (7.5 kilograms), the EcoFlow Wave is portable enough to be carried while camping or traveling by RV. In addition, the EcoFlow Wave requires no set-up and can be easily controlled via the EcoFlow app.
While traditional portable air conditioners require users to drain water frequently, the EcoFlow Wave automatically transfers condensation water to the heat tube to be evaporated. Users only need to drain water from the device when the air humidity is above 70%, or before moving or storing the EcoFlow Wave.
The EcoFlow Wave is now available for pre-order on EcoFlow's website.
*The EcoFlow Wave offers three hours of cooling when using the Wave Add-On Battery. With the timed mode, its running time can be extended to eight hours by alternating between cooling and fan settings
