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!!!

Not enough juice

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.

A great power source, but a poor UPS

By 

from Ithaca, NY, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

As an emergency back-up or off-grid power solution, the Yeti products are great. The included 12-volt and USB ports help the battery last a very long time because they're so much more efficient than the AC ports (which can be disabled until needed). The companion "Light A Life" product makes the Yeti a pleasure to use, and knowing that one can plug in all sorts of 12-volt appliances make this device very future proof and energy efficient. As a nice bonus, there are not one but two chaining ports, one on each side. The manual and the specification don't mention this fact at all. As a word of caution: one might be tempted to see the Yeti series as a "better UPS" and that would be a very risky decision. While the Yeti is more feature rich and flexible than a traditional UPS, it isn't really designed for UPS-like usage. Specifically, the Yeti 400 input meter claims that it can only pull about 60 watts from the included power supply, and one must budget some (perhaps half?) of that wattage towards charging the battery after a power failure. That leaves very little power available for whatever UPS-like problem you are trying to solve.

Like it but wish for 2 power inputs like the 1250

By 

from MD, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

I use both AC and solar panel inputs to charge them but have to manually switch inputs when the AC is turned off. I have 6 of these with the daisy-chain cables only because they don't come with 2 power inputs like the 1250 otherwise I would need only 3. Maybe it's a marketing thing to sell more product.

think twice

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

Look hard on the web at people testing all goal zeros....takes a day+ to charge by plug and 2+ days by solar and drains fast! Short life span too. Also they have limiters that "limit" how much/fast you can (re)charge them. I.e. 120 solar panel (not cheap) will only provide (aka yeti will only allow) approx 50/60 to trickle in...the tech. is just not there yet or they are holding back. Very un-dude!

Perfect portable power for my camper

By 

from Upstate NY

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

I have a 100 watt solar panel on my camper and two Yeti 400 units. They are perfect for my needs. The built in charge controller is convenient. The pure sine inverter is great for my electronic items... Computer, TV and such. If I am parked in the shade I put 50 watt solar panel in a sunny spot and swap units as needed. Couldn't be happier.

Is a great little battery

By 

from Redmond, WA, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

This is my second Yeti 400, and they have worked well. Had one time where it had a battery issue, but after talking to GZ support, they told me how to do a reset, and it has worked flawless since. Will be getting the connectors and linking the two together, and when the sun starts getting higher in the sky again, will try out with my four 30 watt boulder panels attached to the tripod.

Great Product, Fantastic Customer Service

By 

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

I bought this about 2 months ago. Used it for my Resmed CPAP, with humidifier AND heated hose (trying to see what the Yeti would support). After 8 hrs I had burned up almost 50%. Obviously if I really needed it, I would turn off the humdifier and heated hose but it's nice to know I could do it if necessary. Tested all the connections and worked great for recharging iPhones, IPADs, and my PC. Then I plugged in a good sized fan... whoops. I didn't take into account the startup pull and something popped. AC was inop. DC worked fine. Emailed customer support who had me open the box and check the replaceable fuses. Those were good. They then had me send it in (no cost to me) and they replaced it with a new one. Even though it was my fault for not checking the startup pull on the fan. Fantastic customer service!

Outstanding customer service!

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

I use my Yeti 400 for all of my power needs in my E350 Adventure Van and it works great! I have a 125W solar panel on the roof and it feeds more that enough power to keep the Yeti charged up for all my power needs.

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

This Yeti 400 is a constant companion in when I hunt. I charge it during the day with my Goal Zero solar panel and use it a night for my CPAP machine. It's a life saver and most of all it's quiet. It can be used for lap tops, cameras, phones, etc. too.

Doesnt provide enough wattage

By 

from Denver, CO, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

I wanted a solar generator to power my very small baseball pitching machine at practice... didn't produce enough power to operate. Goal Zero please redesign to output at least 600 so that it fits its medium pricepoint.
