Purchased the 400 for some off-grid camping. If you do your research, understand your needs and the product capability, you can't be disappointed if this is your choice.

It ran 6 LAL, charged a Lighthouse 250, charged devices, did everything we expected it to do with no problem recharging the next day.

The real key to the Yeti products are that they are plug and play with Goal Zero panels (which are truly expensive for what you get), but there's no guess work here. Connect panels (or not, if at night), turn on the ports needed, plug stuff in, use the Watts In/Out and Battery "fuel" gauge. It's simple stuff. If you're taking more out than in, you're draining, if more in than out, you're charging. And doing that very simple math tells you how long you have power with what you have running.

Some people balk at the price, and some talk about being able to build one MUCH cheaper. But this is the where those people assume that others have both a mind for the engineering and building/wiring, etc. - including knowing all the solar panel specs, volts, amps, amp-hours, etc., AND totally discount that for those that just don't want to take the time, this, and the rest of the Goal Zero product line is really plug and play. We watch our fuel gauge on our vehicles all the time, and we know at what speed we're going how far we can go. The Yeti products are just that simple. Fuel gauge (battery level) and speed (watts in/out). For those talking about building your own, enjoy the experience. For those who just want to drive a car instead of build it, the Yeti products are for you.

Having run multiple test scenarios at home then taking into the field, I absolutely recommend both the products and Goal Zeros 5-Star customer service.

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.

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        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!

        CPAP Power

        By 

        from Phoenix, AZ, United States

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        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

        By 

        from Toronto, ON, Canada

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        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

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        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.

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        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.

        Amazing Product

        By 

        from Salmon, Idaho

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        3 months ago my husband and I purchased a yeti 400. We've been living in a yurt with no power/lighting (except a propane light) for 15 years. Some years back my husband put together a bike generating system that charged a Duracell power pack. The Duracell only made it 4 months before it quite working and was meager on features. We have been keeping our eyes open for a replacement and when we herd about Goal Zero via our work in Greenland, we started researching and decided to go with the Yeti 400. The Yeti 400 is incredibly practical for our use. We have followed the directions explicitly and (for our own reasons) have not let the power level drop below 80%. After this purchase we've invested in lighting as well and I'm here to say the light-a-life 350 light's (2 daisy chained together) and the Lighthouse 250 lantern have lit up our world. I can actually cook a meal in the kitchen without my headlamp. We've also upgraded a few of our other electronic devices to rechargeable products - all of which charge wonderfully off of the Yeti 400. Not only are the products we purchased excellent, but the customer service was as well. When I called and explained my husbands bike power set up and inquired if there was a way to safely charge the Yeti 400 from the bike, the fellow helping me took the time to talk with Goal Zero's engineers and sent me the proper adapter the next day. The adapter of course works perfectly and my husband is able to get his morning workout in and top off the Yeti 400 at the same time. We are very happy with our purchase.

        Poor Yeti 400s

        By 

        from Alaska, United States

        Comments about Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator - Gray:

        The Yeti 400s are not as durable as they might seem. I bought 14 and had to return 3. I have another that the AC will not work. I live in a very remote area in Alaska. The chaining cables do not work. The product can not be outside as the dew causes the Yeti to burn out. I am not giving up. I am purchasing one Yeti 1,250 and trying to only use the sun for power.
