P2 is a much better than a P1 amp in both: size and power.

It is much more comfortable to use it for a standing setup, because, it is not as bulky as P1. If you make a custom cable 2 xlr mono > 1 xlr stereo it works as a stereo amp flawlessly. And thats the only thing that is better on the P1.
Power of the amplification and the power consumption is way better than it's bigger brother. 9v batteries on the P1, can hold not more than 1/3 time of this AAA battery setup.. Its superb. Quality batteries hold up to 10gigs (±2hours of playing thru the night) for me. While the P1 is not as loud and powers up on a single battery only for ±3 gigs..
It has a good headroom (much more louder than a P1) for playing with a loud band and setting up a powerful headphone mix.

2 things, that could (and should) be improved:

1: Though the format is small, its not very VERY strong. I have had used it for 30-50 gigs already, always clipping it to my jeans strap, sometimes sitting on a chair, sometimes standing up, and, it's chassis has a dent around a XLR area, and a belt clip has a little lost its form.
This does not effect its performance in any way. Just it could be a little stronger.
2: The batteries, more than a few times, after a transportation have had fallen from their places, so almost 2/3 times, out of 4, after you arrive at a gig, you have to open it up and reattach the batteries in to their place.

Price - makes it a no brainer.

Would I recommend them? Why would you even ask it! Would recommend it by 150%. It is a must have for any gigging musician. Just to have it in their backpack with a cheap set of in ears (for example KZ ES4), if the venue is too noisy/loud/not enough monitors/not working monitors - you can save your day for a ±50eur and hear everything loud and clear.

Very basic but solid
Sadon, 20.11.2020
Pros:
+ It's small, doesn't take up space.
+ Doesn't drain battery fast so you can play a very long time, or multiple gigs on the same battery.
+ No nonsense, does exactly what you want.
+ Dual input for XLR or TRS plugs.

cons:
- Rattles a bit when you move it.
- Changing battery is a bit annoying and doesn't go as quickly as the Powerplay P1. But not really a problem.
- No stereo, obviously.

I'm very happy with this. I use it for inear monitoring on gigs. I also have the Behringer Powerplay P1, but I use this P2 more because it's just smaller to take with me. Since I alway have a mono monitor signal I don't really need all the other features that the P1 provides.

Just Get One
Herms, 23.05.2020
For the small sum of £30, it's just brilliant. Not all gigs I play where I'm using my in-ears need a wireless transmitter. This hard wired belt pack is perfect for smaller bar & pub gigs, even rehearsal rooms & home practise. No low end loss here, a perfect full range sound every time.
Using an XLR it works in mono only. The XRL cable also locks in to the P2 (so you won't accidentally pull out the XLR cable mid gig), as long as the XLR connector on the cable has that small locking tab. Most do, some don't. If you open up the P2 (like when to change batteries) you'll see there's a mono/stereo switch mounted on the PCB. In stereo mode you can connect a stereo jack cable and have a stereo mix. The jack doesn't lock in though, be careful not to pull it out by accident. Having the mono/stereo choice is fantastic.
Even though two AAAs last for many hours, I recommend getting rechargeable batteries & a charger if you're going to use the P2 a lot. Which you probably will if you buy one.
If you want to use in-ears, you need one of these. If you already have a wireless for your in ears, you still need one of these. Even just as a cheap back up in case your wireless battery dies in the last set of the gig, or to use at band practise, you need one of these.
