Great Assist for Emergency Prep!
I use my Yeti to charge my phone daily, and other devices sporadically. It is important to keep keep it charged and also use it regularly. Just like the battery in your car. If you do not use it and charge it, it will prematurely expire and be of no use. My Yeti will be ready for an emergency because I use it and keep it charged.

Light in the Remote Meadow
We have to ford a river to get to our remote straw bale cabin in the mountains. Sometimes we can drive across; sometimes there is a foot bridge. This spring, the bridge had not yet been restored, and we were lucky that the river was low enough to drive through. The next morning the river was high and raging after raining during the night upstream in the mountains. This might seem irrelevant to Goal Zero customers, but for us, it underlines how remote our cabin is and how quickly we can be cut off from the world. It reminds us to appreciate the reliability of our Yeti Goal Zero!
Perfect size and power
I use it charge my iPad and IPhone, as well as run the goal zero light set. This little baby stays hooked up to my 100w GZ briefcase panels and stays fully charged. Can't say how pleased I am with the product. Thanks GZ for making this.

I've had my Yeti 400 for three or so years. Recently, the power inverter failed. I contacted Goal Zero and they had me send it back (at their expense) and they sent me a factory fresh, brand new unit. I was hoping for parts at best. They sent me a brand new unit. Amazing! Also, they did it quickly after all of the 2017 hurricane damage. I am sure they have had a recent spike in demand but treated me like a priority. I even asked that they service folks in need first. They still got me handled quickly. Thanks Goal Zero!

Yeti 400 Yes
I own two of these and bring them outside to charge from my 100-W panel. They charge up all my portable devices, my coffee grinder, a few lamps, and could charge more. Will probably put the panel on the patio cover and run a line into the house pretty soon. Probably will get one of the larger Yetis soon as well. They're made well and have worked perfectly so far.
I purchased the Yeti 400 as backup power for my CPAP. I use a Philips Dreamstation Auto. Stats for the first night taken from the Yeti 400 display: -With mask off and humidifier off, it used 24 watts -With mask off and humidifier set at 2, it used 70 watts -With Mask on and humidifier off, watts fluctuated between 3 and 24 in relation to my breathing. -With Mask on and humidifier at 2, watts fluctuated between 50 and 70 in relation to breathing. I slept for 7.2 hours with the humidifier at 2 and pressure at 17, and I consumed 235 Watt Hours. The Yeti 400 showed that it was in the 60% block by morning. It was exactly what I needed!

Nothing Else Can Compete
I am a Photographer and needed reliable power that was safe to run my laptop off and charge gear and Goal Zero was the product that I bought. I have the Yeti 400 and a 20 watt folding solar panel and 1, 8mm 30ft extension cable to plug the charging panel into with 3 of the old style lamps a Rock Out 2 for music and a Mini Lamp for my tent. This rig travels in a case I made for about $20 bucks. I camp 2-3 times a year for 2-3 weeks at a time and never need to worry about power. Also its nice to have power during a pesky black out at home. The only thing I found was that a single 20 watt panel gets the job done but I will be buying a second one and making a portable stand to keep the panels at a 45 degree angle. This wasn't cheap to buy but remember you get what you pay for.

Yeti 400 is great
I upgraded to a Yeti 400 from a 150. I have chained 4 - Duracell 35 amp hour batteries, totaling 2,000 watts/175 amp hours. I can watch a 50" Samsung LED HD TV with satellite dish for several hours and run an ARP cooler through the inverter with no problems. I also have several Goal Zero products that stay fully charged, as well as cell phones, tablets and an occasional lap top. I would have purchased the 1250, but no room, the 400 is doing a great job staying charged with a Renogy 100 watt mono solar panel.
Omg going on nearly 4 years
I use the primary for emergencies and camping. It's amazing, form factor is well worth the cost. It even runs a small frig, with an extra battery chained. One of the best investments I have made. Absolutely love this unit.
