Hello everyone, I am Lao Ji very vigorous! Fall is finally here and the cooler fall weekends are more popular with camping enthusiasts than the summer months. When I went camping last week, I noticed from the number of cars in the campground that there were more people camping than in the summer, and my friends around me also started to choose to go to some camping areas that offer tents for their kids to stay overnight, to enjoy the quietness of nature and to see the pure stars of the night sky without the light pollution of the city. Look at the keywords camping in Baidu search to know how hot camping is this year.
Whether it's an afternoon camping trip to eat some barbecue or fondue, or an overnight stay at a campsite for ambient lighting, charging cell phones or playing a movie with a projector for the family to sit around and enjoy, electricity is indispensable. Most campgrounds do not provide electricity service, so outdoor power supply has become a necessary equipment for camping enthusiasts, and recently there have been more brands of outdoor power supply.
Today we bring you a comparative review of two new mainstream outdoor power supplies. One is an upgraded version of the DELTA-De 2 (left), and the other is an upgraded version of the Electric Xiao Er 1 degree power-1000Pro (right). Zhenghao and electric small two can be said to be the two biggest brands in the outdoor power supply. Electricity is the first outdoor power supply brand to hit the market, while Zhenghao is relying on more technology to catch up. The two products in this issue are the 2022 upgraded versions of their classic mainstream models of power supplies, so let's see who is stronger.
1、Appearance and function comparison review
The capacity of the left side of the Hao De 2 and the right side of the electric small two 1000P are 1 degree, with these two new products with the same capacity and listed at the same time is still a good basis for comparison.
When we buy outdoor power supply, the following points of purchase need our careful consideration. First of all, according to their needs to choose the right battery capacity, too small capacity is not enough, too large capacity of the power supply is not only a lot heavier and also a lot more expensive. If there is no demand for outdoor barbecue hot pot like me, just boiling water and tea, boiling noodles, charging cell phones and drones and providing lighting to the camp, the general capacity of 0.7-1 degrees of electricity is just right.
The maximum output power is of course the greater the better, there are some advanced outdoor power supply has inverter technology, that is, with a lower voltage to drive beyond the rated power of the power equipment, this function is still quite useful, in the later will also be introduced. Charging speed is recommended to choose a fast-charging, can use a meal time to replenish a lot of power. As for other features, it is also based on their own needs to choose.
Back to the two outdoor power supply. First of all, the De 2 of Zhenghao, which has four USB jacks and two TYPE- C jacks on the front, and four five-hole sockets, a cigarette lighter jack, and solar and utility charging holes on the back. It is worth mentioning that the De 2 is equipped with lithium iron phosphate battery cells, compared to common lithium batteries, lithium iron phosphate battery cells are more stable and safer.
There are 2 USB, 2 TYPE-C, and 2 five-hole sockets on the front of the electric small two, and a small cover on both sides of the display is an outdoor lighting, and a jack for cigarette lighter devices. The number of jack blanks is a little less, with an additional outdoor lighting. Utility and solar charging holes in the back of the mainframe. Electric Xiao Er 1000P is not practical lithium iron phosphate batteries, but the use of common lithium batteries.
Zhenghao-de 2 has two USB3.0 fast charging jacks, 2 TYPE-C are supported up to 100W PD fast charging, such as 16-inch MacBook and other can be charged at full speed. The first generation of Zhenghao-de on the configuration of the TYPE-C this very useful feature.
I remember in the previous generation of the electric small two is not this configuration, upgrade this practical function is also justified, after all, most of the devices that support fast charging are now TYPE-C. In 2 years, the USB port can be canceled.
The screen of the Zhenghaodu 2 displays the battery level, the power charged and output, and the remaining time to full/exhausted capacity.
Electric Xiao Er 1000P screen than the first generation has been upgraded a lot, the display is similar to the de 2.
Electric Xiaoji 1000P will be the heritage of outdoor lighting down, the night will also be quite practical.
Zhenghao's De2 can view the status of the power supply via Bluetooth in the APP, including the output power of several ports, the charging power setting for fast charging, and some other setting parameters. It can also be connected to the home network for remote control.
Well, after the introduction of the appearance, it can be said that the two outdoor power supply each has its own characteristics. Zheng Hao De 2 sockets more, electric small two more lights. Next look at the practicality test which is better.
2、Actual use evaluation
Electric Xiao Er finally equipped with fast charging function on the 1000P, the previous era of 5 or 6 hours to fill up will not be available again. Zhenghao, on the other hand, has always had a fast-charging function since the first product I used a few years ago.
Take a look at the charging speed curves of both, with the horizontal coordinate being the charge level and the vertical coordinate being the charging time. Both outdoor power supply are charged from 1% to 99%, Zhenghaodu 2 takes about 82 minutes and Denshiji 1000P takes about 93 minutes. The peak charging power of Zhenghaodu 2 is 1200W, and that of Denshiji is about 800W.
Next look at the output power of the two power supplies charging my MacBook and iPhone (shown on the screen). The CZHOD2 is 80W, which is about the same spec as charging a 65W computer + 18W phone.
The Electric Little Two is similarly between 79-80W. Both outdoor power supplies have TYPE-C fast charging ports that meet the charging specifications of common electronics.
Next is the important introduction of power rating comparison. The maximum power rating of Zhenghaodu 2 is 1800W, which can be driven by power-using devices within 1800W.
For example, the output power of our common home appliances electric kettle is generally between 1400-1700W, using this Zhenghaode 2 can easily drive boiling water.
And electric small two new 1000P rated output power is only 1000W, can not drive me this 1400W electric kettle. If you camping to boil water, you need to deliberately buy a camping-specific low-power electric kettle.
Try to use the electric Xiaoji to power this kettle, you can see that when the kettle is just started on, the blue light is also on, but within a few seconds the light goes out, and the power supply also stops supplying power.
After a power failure, an error code F6 will appear in the lower right corner of the screen. means that any electrical device in your home over 1000W such as electric pressure cookers, air fryer lights can not be used, unless it is an induction cooker with multi-stage heat.
Many mainstream outdoor power supplies now offer a solution to this problem - intelligent inverter technology. That is, reverse support for power devices that exceed the rated output power, for example, a 1000W outdoor power supply can drive an 1800W electric kettle to run --- of course, the operating power is only 1000W, but boiling water is still no problem at all. This review more than this de 2 not only native rated power on 1800W, and support for inverter technology, up to drive more than 2400W devices. Electric small two in the new product has not been hung on the inverter technology, I do not know if it is not patented use or for cost considerations, a bit of a pity.
But for the induction cooker with gear difference, within 1000W of the fire on the electric small two can also be used completely. For example, when I was eating hot pot, the actual test 1000W is enough to bring the water to a rolling boil. After keeping at 500-700W will be able to keep the water boiling.
1800W de 2 drive 1600W air fryer also does not matter, want to bake some chicken wings or even the whole chicken in the campground, the capacity of 1 degree is also more than enough.
The 10-grid full power 2200W induction cooker can also be started on the De 2 which supports up to 2400W inverter, note the output power, which is automatically reduced to about 1800W.
If you want to eat hot pot in the campground with one degree of electricity, according to my actual test, half a pot of water boiling needs about 0.2 degrees of electricity. Next to comment on the 700W range, you can probably boil and run for 1 hour (not including the time to bring the water to a boil), 3, 4 people a little faster to cook hot pot to eat or enough.
If you are planning to camp overnight, you can use an external power supply to drive lights, projectors, and also power your cell phone, drone, and computer. If your outdoor air conditioner runs out of power during the day, you can also connect it to the outdoor power supply to blow cool breeze into your tent at night.
Well, the article has come to an end and I believe that you have a fair understanding of both outdoor power supplies, using the table to compare the key parameters of both.
As can be seen from the chart above, the price and battery capacity of the two outdoor power supply is basically the same; charging speed of the two machines have fast charging function, Zhenghao is a little faster, the difference between the two full about 10 minutes is not a big difference. Electric Xiaoji has a built-in light, which is still more practical. From the type of battery cell, Zhenghao De 2 lithium iron phosphate battery cell is currently recognized as a safer battery cell, many new energy trams are also in use.
In the key rated output power, I'm afraid Zhenghao De 2 is crushingly superior, whether it is a household kettle, wall-breaker or even air fryer, almost all the appliances you can find at home De 2 can drive, and it also has intelligent inverter technology can drive up to 2400W appliances. If you go on a long drive to enjoy nature, you can put your home electric kettle on hand to use.
In the entire outdoor power supply product market, the 1000W power rating of the electric small two is not low, belongs to the mainstream specifications. What I find most unfortunate is that the 1000P is not equipped with the more popular high power appliance solution - inverter technology. This makes its range of appliances slightly restricted, such as only outdoor special folding electric kettle or electric water heater cup.
All in all, Zhenghaodu 2 exceeds the Electric Xiaoji 1000Pro in several key parameters, making it a more recommendable product in the 1 degree outdoor power supply.
Well, that's it for this issue, if you have any views on outdoor power and camping, are welcome to communicate with me. I am the old discipline very vigorous, thank you for watching, love you yo!
