I am happy to tell about my experience with the YETI 400. I was able to back pack into the High Uinta Wilderness area in Utah with the YETI 400. I would need to use the YETI 400 to run my CPAP breathing device. I used it Sunday night at the trailhead for my CPAP, charged my Smart Phone and tablet all night and used 2 Light-A-Life all evening. Monday hiked in- so virtually zero charge time. Because of overcast in the evening I saw 3% one time on the charge panel, a few 1% readings then the sun went down. Monday evening, same routine; CPAP, Smart Phone, tablet & lights. It worked perfectly with power to spare. Needless to say I am ecstatic about my YETI 400 and all of my GOAL ZERO products. THANK YOU GOAL ZERO!!!

Hi, I haven’t written many reviews but I felt the need to write this one. I have own Goal Zero products for several years and have had few issues. Today, after fully charging my new Yeti 400, I decided to run some simple test. I used a Watts meter to note the amount of watts each item used. Everything from a small pc at approx 25w to power drill at approx 268w. I first used my Yeti to power my 42in Flat screen w/a blue-ray player. It ran approx 68-73w and with added cable box it hit 85w. Then I powered up my 240w Sony Music player it ran 40-45w. Everything was going well until I plugged in my power drill (1/4in drill 115 vac/2amps). My watts meter stated that it required up to 270w at the start but then settled approx 160w. My Yeti ran it for about 15 second before shutting down completely. And then I had to re-set the power button and the AC button. By the way, I have two Yeti 400 and both did the same thing. So I whipped out both my DieHard 1150 portable power and my Stanley Professional power station both with inverts and both rank 400 watts of power just like my Yetis. And both my DieHard and Stanley ran my drill with no problems (at least for 30 or more seconds). I measured the watts again of my small drill and again it measured approx 270, well under the 400 continuous power rating of my Yetis. Everything else ran fine but I caution anyone that this is not a generator replacement like so many have stated. Yes, it does provide enough power for small thing but it really doesn’t compare to some less expensive power stations ($140 to $170). And yes, my other power stations can do nearly everything for less, even be charged with solar panels. I am still a Goal Zero fan but I am learning it limitations. Thanks for reading.

VIP power supply for Boy Scout Summer Camp week

By Loyalist

from Northwood, NH

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator:

I was on-the-fence whether or not I should bring this along to a week-long Boy Scout Summer Camp in August 2015 in Northwood, NH and I'm so glad I decided to do so. I used a 2-wheel dolly to transport it from the parking lot to our campsite (~ 6 minute walk) and used it at least once a day to recharge my iPhone 6 (I had nothing else that I needed to power-up or recharge during the week). By week's end (after 6 nights) the display still was showing 60% capacity. All of our troop's other campers - adults and kids - had to recharged their phones outside by the latrine in a hornet's nest of AC adapters, power strips and extension cords while I conveniently and privately recharged mine protected inside my tent. I was concerned that the temperature inside the tent (during the daytime) might get too hot and affect the Yeti but I ended up recharging my phone at night so it was never an issue. I did notice that for whatever reason, I was not able to fully operate my iPhone while it was connected to the Yeti and charging (the touch screen was inconsistently responsive). I used small key locks to secure my tent's door zippers to discourage thieves since the Yeti was the most expensive piece of gear I brought along. Even though a knife could easily cut the zipper cords that the locks were attached to, it provided a detriment and theft was not an issue at our campsite. I still need to figure out how I'd safely and securely recharge the Yeti400 if and when it needs it...thinking of securing it with a bicycle lock via the handle to a picnic table leg...will still need to run an extension cord to an AC outlet by the latrine and keep it under a covered area to protect against rain. Overall it was totally worth it to bring the Yeti along for a private, peace-of-mind power source.

Last a loooooong time

I bought this for my CPAP when camping. I was able to get a weekend out of the Yeti 400, which is awesome. I do not sleep well without my CPAP.

Emergency and almost mobile power

By peter2854

from Washington, DC, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator:

I got a Yeti 400 a couple of weeks ago, along with the Boulder 30 solar panel. Now I am able to have some significant emergency power for my home, and a mobile electric power pack, if needed. I had already created a 33AmpHour sealed battery for emergency power, but always charged it from the wall. Now the Boulder 30 is doing a great job of charging the Yeti 400 so that I now charge my Guide 10 Plus from the Yeti 400, and not from my Nomad 7. I can also charge up my old battery from the Yeti 400, and it does not lower the charge in my Yeti 400 by much. This really lets me use my Guide 10 Plus as a very light mobile power pack that I can charge up a cellphone with, as well as all of my AA and AAA NiMh batteries, without worrying whether there will be a sunny day soon enough. The Boulder 30 seems to be able to keep the Yeti 400 charged unless I start trying to use it for a more routine power source.
