Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Solar Generator Kit Reviews:


Perfect for Car Camping or Even Indoors!

I've absolutely loved my Yeti and have owned it for about a year now. It's very easy and intuitive to use, silent, and durable. The variety of power outputs makes the Yeti extremely versatile and well suited to nearly any device you might need to power.

The battery has a display which lets you monitor the input and output so that you can accurately predict how long it will last at its current rate of use.

I found that for heavy use, the Yeti requires at least 4 Boulder 30 panels, rather than the 2 that come in the kit. You will also likely benefit from getting an exension cord for panels, unless you plan to keep them pretty close to the battery.

When camping, I use the Yeti to recharge all of my devices (with rechargeable batteries), keep our group's phone's charged, light up the entire camp (a few Light-a-Life's are very bright, and super efficient), and maybe keep 1 other small device like a laptop or fan working. I don't recommend it for large devices that constantly draw power (fridge, TV, etc), you would need more than 1 Yeti and more panels to reliably keep them running all day/night long.

I've also found use for the Yeti around my apartment. I put the panels up on my roof and used the Yeti to light my entire bedroom, power a window fan, and recharge my phone and laptop. I would keep it connected to the wall that way I could use a combination of solar and wall-outlet power, to reduce my power usage.

The biggest downside is the overall weight. It is not easy to move by yourself. There used to be a roll cart extension that you could attach to the battery to make moving it easier, but it appears to be discontinued, and the handles did not retract (like a suitcase would) which made storing it difficult.

Overall, I highly recommend the Yeti and have gotten quite a lot of use out of it. It's been great for any extended car-camping, especially for music festivals w/camping.

Good Investment

I purchased the Yeti about six weeks before hurricane Sandy and used it to run a refrig and a few minor items (lights, laptop, cell phone, etc.) alternating run times bringing the refrig down in temp then unplugging several hours (it will stay cold for a few hours) then plugging back in and repeating trying to make the charge in the generator last. Unfortunately there was not much sun and couldn't keep up with usage. You must remember Sandy was a the extreme. I would like to see something like a pedal attachment (bicycle type) to recharge. Also recommend 4 Nomad 30 solar panels (2 are included) and tripod to cut down solar charging time. Also, keep it plugged in at all times to keep it topped off. I do like the unit and recommend it highly.
