    First Solar Power Generator, December 25, 2012
    By 
    happygolucky (New York City) –

    After Hurricane Sandy, I decided I wanted to get a generator for future emergencies. I did my research and decided to purchase the Goal Zero Yeti Generator with wheel cart attachments and twin solar panels.
    I decided on the Yeti for several reasons: One, I live in an apartment and although I have a terrace, I couldn’t deal with possible carbon monoxide fumes. Two, gas stations rely on electricity to pump gas in NYC, so a regular gas fuel generator wouldn’t be feasible. Three, I wanted a silent generator. Four, simplicity. I’m not an electrical engineer so I didn’t want to link marine deep cell batteries in my apartment.
    I tested the generator out as soon as I received it so I fully charged the battery and plugged in my single door, full sized refrigerator to see how long it would power it. My expectations were probably a little too high so I was a little disappointed with the results. My fridge was only able to be powered by the Yeti for 12 hours. Now…that said, I don’t believe an equal sized gas generator would be able to power my fridge for that long without periodic additional gas refills. Also, I probably could have powered my fridge for longer but I didn’t’ want to drain the battery more than 50%. One of the things that isn’t mentioned in a lot of the descriptions of the Yeti online is that the manufacture suggests to maximize the life of the battery; you shouldn’t deplete the stored charge by more than 50%. Since everyone who invests in this pricy device wants it to last as long as possible, this is pretty much the most you are going to get from this generator.
    Another tip: do not purchase this generator without the wheel accessory attachment. This device is HEAVY. I’m an adult male, 6’2″ and 220lbs and its tough for me to move. Unless you transport beer kegs or 5 gal. bottled water containers for a living, do yourself a favor and get the wheels if you do decide to purchase. I purchased the generator as winter was approaching so I didn’t get a chance to test out the solar power panels yet. I will try them out next summer when the sun output is at its peak for the northeast. Although the handles don’t telescope down and collapse into the battery when not in use, they do detach and reattach easily when you need to move it.
    I have lived in this same apartment for over 20 yrs and have experienced 3 blackouts, including Sandy. Sandy was exceptional since the power was out for several days. I don’t know if I would remain sheltered again for that many days if power was expected to be out for that long again, I would probably bug out to a hotel next time. Since the duration of the other two blackouts were less than a day, I think the Yeti would be able to get me through should I expect to be without power for less than 24 hours.
    All that said I am still glad I purchased the Yeti, although it isn’t a perfect solution, it does cover some of the particular issues I was looking to address when purchasing an emergency power generator for emergency power outages.

    Is this product right for you?, September 4, 2013
    By 
    ATHiker (Chattanooga) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This is a good to great product for its design capacity. It is a power pack only! Only AC charging in this option (other option sold separately). Solar Generator is a misnomer if you have solar panels for this, it will recharge. A more correct name would be a power pack (option for a solar recharge). It is just a 29lbs box with a 12 volt 33Ah AGM Lead Acid battery (~400 watts) with 2x 2.1 ampere USB outlet, 12 volts outlet and 300 watts pure sine AC inverter.

    First (is this product right for you?), you need to know what you want to power and for how long (run-time). This is true for any alternative power product. If you don’t know the watts, you can buy a watt meter for less than $20, or if the manufacturer has the information, you can look on the web or call. Note most manufacturer ratings in manuals are for Max power drain
    .
    (5 Stars)Product Ratings: quality is 4; functionality 4+; customer service 4-5 (both pre and post); Cost 2; educating users i.e. ads, manual etc. 2. For an overall rating of 3+. Goal Zero can go a long way by having educational series (YouTube) preparing, how to, and best practices including when to use and not use their products. Note on the cost; it is not as much as a function of Goal Zero over charging but that the more mobile and multifunctional the more costly it becomes.

    This product is a low power option ~400 watts and is only good for low power items like cell phone, radios, cordless phone power base, some LED lighting or small LED TVs and some CPAPs. If you can use a portable gas generator, you can get a 2,000 watts units for less than this item. The main use most people that I have talk too about this products is as a backup for a CPAP which is one reason I use it.

    If your CPAP with humidifier is 90 Watts with AC (ex. ResMed S9 CPAP), then here how to work out the power. Using the AC uses about 20% to covert DC to AC so the unit (Yeti 400) now is 320 watts. 320/90 = about 3+ hours. But if you use the humidifier on low the CPAP is somewhere between 40 to 70 watts so 320/40 watts is about 8 hours. My CPAP (not a S9) has a Car DC adapter (No loss for going from DC to AC and back to DC again.). that uses only 11 watts without humidifier installed and because I am NOT using the AC; I have ~400 watts. This comes out to be about 36 hours (about 4 and a half nights). This is why some reviews looks contradictory.

    I also have a portable gas generator so why did I get the Yeti 400. I live in a rural area with power outages between 7 and 10 times a year. Most outages are only for a few hours and occur in bad weather and at night. Moving the generator outside and running power cords (open windows or doors for the cables) are best done in the daylight and not during bad weather. Also I use it car camping, remote photo shoots, and other mobile activities. Its’ mobility and the fact that I only need about 250 watts (min mobile) is why I choose it.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:33 Mins

    This product is more than you bargained for. I am using it for an off the grid application. I run 750 watt hours of high intensity flourescents and a 300 watt hour kerosene heater. I was using a generator but the noise gets to you. What i didn’t realize getting into this is that 12 32 watt fluorescent bulbs can only be run for about an hour + 1/2. So I attached 2 marine deep cycle 100 amp hour battery to the anderson ports on the back and now I can run three hours, But the two solar panels (boulder 30)s are only able to charge the yeti after a good day and you need at least 2 more panels to get both the yeti and the marine batteries charged up. I purchased two other real solar panels (120 watts each) (too bad goal zero doesn’t have them)to make charging easier– but these needed to go into the anderson connectors on the front. So now i can get 360 watts peak input (actually measured 330 yesterday) The tech support at goal zero is good, patient (Jacob kudos to you) and willing to recommend things that they don’t sell yet.

    Video shows my setup and how things are hooked up.

    I did not know much about solar power to begin, but working with this unit has really forced an education upon me. The power plugs available are good. This unit is heavy, heavy. The capacity of the unit output wise (1250 watt continuous)is usable. The charge controller is also robust. If you are already solar savvy then you know that you can do this cheaper by buying your own high quality battery, charger controller and power inverter. If you are techno capable but not solar savvy, have spare cash to buy other parts and willing to learn new things then buying this is a gateway to solar energy. Be warned that once you get the bug you are going to want solar shingles and a south facing roof clear of obstructions.

    7/2014 As a follow up, the system is still working well. No complaints. Have since rewired the battery bank to better charge it uniformly. I built a large vegetable greenhouse on a remote property and using my accumulated knowledge bought 4 100 watt 12v panels (125$ each), a midrange 40 amp mppt charge controller(190), a 1500 watt inverter (140), 4 100 + amp hr golf cart batts (140 each), stuck it in a cheaper plastic cabinet (59) inside the greenhouse and used it until the the high greenhouse humidity shorted out the charge controller (ouch). I then bought a refurb yeti (900$) and was back in business quickly. I suppose I could have built a outside shed just for the system and maybe the system would not have shorted. As a side note, 4 100 watt panels is too much watts for midday sun now but I’m thinking it will be ok when we get to our usual less than optimal sun later in the year.

    Now what I want from these goal zero guys is more capacity on the charge controller.

    11/14 update
    Built another greenhouse, so another set up. This time again with refurb yeti and 160 watt mono panel. I added 3 vmax 125 amp hour AGM batteries via the chaining port. We have had a lot of poor sun days and this was not enough power to keep it running despite only needing 27 watts per hour 7/24 (648 watt-hrs/day). Added a second 160 watt panel and still getting depleted. I know that these are the short days and I am living in michigan but why are my 4 100 watt mono panels and 4 100 amp hr lead acid batteries (500 amp-hr total)+ the yeti staying 80% on a day to day basis while 320 watts panels (2x 160) and 500amp hr agm getting depleted? arh! will try adding another panel. After reading I thought AGM would be better but not so far.

    8/15
    Built another greenhouse and a second polebarn. Still off the grid. Moved the goal zero units to the greenhouses because they can handle the high humidity and the polebarns have 30a charge controllers and 2000 watt inverters in the pole barns. All have 5 100 amp hour battery sets (including the goal zero). Two of the battery sets are 12v Vmax 125 agm, one is 12v marine batteries, and one set is 6v Trojan golf card batteries. I still also have a backup 5000w gasoline Honda generator for running the well and when I have 2000 watt load from a lot of lights (1500 watts), refrig and tools. All of the panel angles are set for winter optimization (about 30 degrees here) (I know lazy – lazy)

    I can say the goal zero units educated me and still are daily workhorses with no failures. I enjoy the multitude of inputs and outputs. I have replaced the original main battery once. The original marine battery bank is showing its age but it doesn’t get worked often. I melted one of the front Anderson ports by putting too high a panel load (and I knew it could cause trouble but Sun is hard to come by in January round here). The goal zero is a mobile compact heavy very usable unit and easy way to get power. A good way to try out solar and get usable results if you are tech capable. Solar…
