Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator
You've finally gotten away from the city. Welcome to summer vacation at the cabin. This is going to be your home for the next couple of weeks. And while you've got a roof over your head, it's definitely lacking some of the accoutrements you need to call it home. With laptop, tablet, and smartphone all in tow you know at some point you'll need to recharge and power all of those things. Luckily, you packed your Goal Zero Yeti 150 solar generator.
From your smartphone and laptop to your electric cooler and lantern, the Yeti 150 can charge and power them all. Dual USB ports let you keep mobile devices topped up; an AC inverter to power any device that plugs into a regular wall socket; and the 12V DC port with car adapter keeps your cooler powered so your bevvies stay cold and your hotdogs fresh. And if the Yeti 150 runs out of juice, simply hook up a Goal Zero solar panel and charge it up.
What you need to know:
- Direct charging: The Yeti 150 has 3 ways to charge your devices: USB port, 12V car port, and AC inverter. The 2 USB ports each have a 5V output up to 2.1A (10W max), regulated. The 12V car port outputs 12V up to 10A (120W max), regulated. The AC inverter has a 110V output, up to 0.7A (80W continuous, 160W surge max), 60Hz, modified sine wave.
- Charges most devices: This power generator can charge USB and 12V devices with low to medium power needs, including smartphones, action cameras, headlamps, handheld GPS units, tablets, laptops, lights, lanterns, and more. Charging a device with the Yeti 150 takes the same amount of time to charge as it does from the wall.
- Charge devices simultaneously: The Yeti 150 has dual USB ports, allowing you to charge 2 USB devices at once. A 12V port allows you to power anything that requires a direct current (DC), such as lights or a cooler.
- Dedicated AC inverter: Connect your device to the AC inverter for power, just like you would plug it into the wall.
- Battery capacity: This 150Wh generator (12V, 14Ah) offers lots of power for charging a variety of devices. A headlamp uses 4Wh for up to 37 charges; a smartphone uses 5 to 7Wh for up to 15 charges; a GoPro uses 5Wh for up to 25 charges; a digital camera uses 8Wh for up to 12 charges; a tablet uses 25 to 42Wh for up to 6 charges; and a laptop uses 50Wh for 1 to 2 charges.
- Powering up the generator: Charge the Yeti 150 in 6 hours using the wall charger or 8 hours using the car charger.
- Store the sun for later: You can also use a Goal Zero solar panel to charge the Yeti 150, but charging times will vary: Nomad 13, 26 to 52 hours; Nomad 20, 17 to 34 hours; Boulder 15, 22 to 44 hours; and Boulder 30, 11 to 22 hours (each sold separately).
- Portable design: Get go-anywhere power for base camps, cabins and unexpected outages.
- Low battery indicator: The Yeti 150 will chirp to alert you that the battery is low and needs to be charged.
- Maintenance: Keep the Yeti 150 connected to a power source, such as a solar panel or wall outlet, while in storage to prolong the battery life. If you can't keep the Yeti 150 plugged into a power source during storage, fully charge your Yeti 150 every 3 months. Failure to maintain the Yeti 150 can result in battery damage. Store it in a cool, dry place.
