If you’ve been on the lookout for a decent portable battery generator, no doubt you would have come across both the Ecoflow Delta 1300 and the Jackery 1000.
On its face, these two products seem more or less identical, but there are crucial differences between them. In this article, we’ll put the two power stations head-to-head to see which one comes out on top.
If you have more questions about the two, check out our FAQ at the end of the article.
Ecoflow Delta 1300 versus Jackery 1000
|Ecoflow Delta 1300||Jackery 1000|
|110V AC Outlets||6 Ports||3 Ports|
|Charge Time (from 0%)||1.5 hours||7 hours|
Both the Jackery 1000 and the Delta 1300 have a wide range of charging ports that can support multiple devices at once.
The Jackery 1000 has only 3 AC 110V power outlets each with 1000W output. On top of the AC outlets, the Jackery has a total of 4 USB ports. 2 of the USB ports are standard (one is a 3.0 Quick Charge) and 2 are USB-C ports.
The Jackery has a 10A, 12V DC carport to power small electronics.
The Ecoflow Delta 1300 has more ports in general. The 6 AC 110V outlets each reach 1800W of discharge, which can handle most household appliances short of a tumble drier.
The Delta 1300 has an impressive total of 6 USB ports. There are 4, 28W standard USB outlets and another 2 USB-C ports.
Like the Jackery, the Delta 1300 has a car charging port rated at 13.8V. 8A.
In terms of the number and output of the power outlets, the Ecoflow Delta 1300 is the clear victor.
If you’re on the hunt for a portable battery bank, you want to get one with a high power capacity. A battery’s capacity is measured by the amount of power it can hold and discharge to power gadgets and appliances.
The Ecoflow Delta 1300 has a capacity of 1300 Watt hours (1300Wh). This means it can maintain a 1300W appliance for one hour. For a more practical example, a laptop that draws 80W per hour could be powered for over 16 hours.
The Ecoflow Delta 1300 alternative, the Jackery 1000 has 300Wh less than its competitor. 1000Wh is nothing to scoff at, but it does limit what you can run and for how long. The same 80W laptop from the previous example could only run for 12 hours before depleting the battery.
The Ecoflow Delta 1300 power and capacity substantially outperforms the Jackery 1000. For this reason, it’s the clear winner in this category.
A portable generator with a high capacity is good and well, but it doesn’t mean much if it takes too long to build a charge. Both batteries have multiple charging methods which come in handy for campers and travelers.
Ecoflow Delta 1300 charge time is shockingly (pun intended) fast. Plugged directly into an AC outlet, the Delta has smart patented X-STREAM technology which can fully charge the battery in under 2 hours.
In comparison to this, the Jackery 1000 does not fare well. Plugged into a wall socket, the Jackery will take around 7 hours to go from 0% to 100%.
Both batteries can also be charged using solar panels. Solar Panels for Ecoflow Delta 1300 will fully charge the generator in around 4 hours in ideal conditions. In the same weather, the Jackery 1000 will be fully charged in just under 7 hours.
The difference between the two isn’t a deal-breaker, but it is significant.
Jackery 1000 or Ecoflow Delta 1300
The Jackery 1000 was designed with durability in mind. The generator is ideal for campers and those into the van life lifestyle. They have aggressively marketed themselves on social media in recent years, which explains their growing popularity.
Unlike the clunky and noisy gas and diesel generators of previous generations, the Jackery is almost silent and produces no harmful emissions. This means it can be safely tucked under your car seat and hauled across the country.
The Jackery 1000 comes with a built-in MPPT solar charge controller, so it can be hooked up to solar panels straight out the box. This is great for extended camping trips or even tiny houses with an emphasis on green energy.
Battery degradation is one of the areas where the Jackery falls a bit short. The device is rated at 80% capacity after 500 discharges. So after 500 cycles of fully depleting the battery from a full charge, it will hold only 800Wh of energy.
This isn’t a huge issue for people using the device for weekend camping trips, but regular users will quickly rack up 500 discharge cycles in around 2 years.
- Highly durable and unlikely to break.
- Silent operation.
- Light and portable.
- Relatively low capacity.
- Fast battery degradation.
Ecoflow Delta 1300
We’ve already done an in-depth Ecoflow Delta 1300 review where we cover this device in detail.
The Delta 1300 is the newest in Ecoflow’s range of portable power stations. The key addition to this device is the new X-STREAM fast charging technology that can charge the bank from 0-80% in under an hour.
The Delta 1300 is a little heavier than the Jackery which makes it more of a mission to transport, but it’s far from immovable. For a few extra bucks, you can get yourself a tram to make moving it easier.
Like the Jackery, the Delta comes with an MPPT solar charger so it’s ready for solar panels.
- Superfast charge times.
- High capacity and power output.
- Lots of power outlets.
- Noisier than the Jackery.
- Poor round-trip efficiency.
