Solar Generator? The Goal Zero Yeti 150 Portable Power Station is an excellent introduction to Goal Zero's portable power station a/k/a solar generator line. But what is a solar generator you ask? Well a traditional gasoline powered generator supplies power to many devices or RVs or homes. But they are loud, smell and can be quite large and expensive. Whereas the Yeti 150 solar generator is quiet, clean, odorless, small and can power a variety of smaller devices.
What does it do? Like any other portable charger, it charges up your gadgets--cameras, phones, tablets, laptops, lights, etc. But unlike a lot of chargers, the Yeti 150 solar generator is big enough to charge many times (see chart below) without being recharged itself. To recharge it, you can plug it into a standard AC outlet or when on the go, plug in some solar panels. Goal zero has some excellent small portable panels (to be posted here soon), or with an adaptor kit, you can get one of our 12V small solar panels and charge to your heart's content.!
Additional info. The Yeti 150 uses a 12 volt 14 amp hour AGM sealed lead acid battery for a total capacity of 150 watt hours. It outputs 120W DC (via USB and 6mm port) and modified sine wave AC via an 80W (continuous/120W surge) DC to AC inverter. See the user manual below for more information about compatible solar panels, charge times, and more. At only 8" x 7" x 6" this is a very handy, yet small solar generator.
