The EcoFlow Power Hub – Specs and Features
As said above, the Power Hub is the central part of the Power Kit. It is an all-in-one hub that intermediates the input and output options of the system.
When it comes to the built-in input options, the Hub features multiple facilities that cover a solar source, a gas generator, and DC and AC power options.
For solar power, it features a pair of 1000W MPPT charge controllers of 30A, 15V-150V. Besides, it sports a battery charger with an MPPT option to take the overall solar input up to 3000 watts.
Moreover, the Hub features a DC-DC step-down inverter as well as a 3000W AC charger.
Coming to the output options, the Power Hub is capable of delivering a total of 4600 watts, which include 3600W AC-rated power and 1000W DC-rated power.
Thanks to the Hub’s integration of the brand’s popular X-boost technology, the Power Kit can smoothly power bigger appliances such as an AC and heater in your RV or remote cabin.
The Power Hub measures 18.9 x 5.5 x 11.8 in and it weighs 31 lbs.
EcoFlow Rigid and Flexible Solar Panels – 100W and 400W
EcoFlow has different types of rigid and portable solar panels for the Power Kit. They include rigid and flexible solar panels in both 100W and 400W power options.

The solid panel comes with pre-drilled holes around it so that you can easily secure it on the top of your RV or tent. The flexible solar is a lightweight, and ultra-thin unit, which can flex to some degree letting you fit it easily on a curved surface. The former weighs 13.7 lbs, while the flexible one weighs just 5.1 lbs.

The Power Hub, however, works with third-party solar panels. Before using the other brand panels, make sure that the system has got each of its solar inputs with a maximum voltage of 150V and a current of 30A.
