EcoFlow unveiled the first-generation Wave in the middle of 2022.
It was on sale by the first week of June last year and it made momentum as it was the beginning of the summer. The new Wave having both heating and cooling functions can even be expected before this year’s winter, though. Let us wait and see what comes first from EcoFlow.
EcoFlow Wave Vs. Wave 2 – The Differences Uncovered
The Wave 2 is indeed an improved upgrade to its original. The notable features, as mentioned above, are the inclusion of a heating option, better cooling capacity, and higher solar charging input, apart from a compact and lightweight design.
Faster and Better Cooling
First of all, the new Wave 2 can offer better cooling to make your small outdoor living spaces cool rather quickly. As a 5100 BTU air conditioner, it can certainly do better than its predecessor, which, as you know, is a 4000 BTU AC.
It looks like EcoFlow has deliberately increased the cooling capacity of its much-touted portable AC to meet customer requirements.
Not only a Cooler, but a Heater also
As you already know, the new Wave 2 is not only a cooler but also a heater. It comes with a 6100 BTU heat pump to make your outdoor living spaces warmer, which is definitely one of the reasons that make the new Wave 2 unique from its predecessor.
