The Yeti 400 from Goal Zero, isn’t your standard portable generator. It’s quiet, doesn’t produce any nasty fumes, and it has the added bonus of being able to charge it up from multiple sources. Keep it around camp for powering your devices, at your holiday house or cabin, or even in the shed to prepare for a power outage.
This solar generator has the capacity to charge a CPAP machine, fridge or tv, as well as other small devices such as phones and tablets. The AC inverter on this generator is like have a transportable wall socket – making it pretty handy for long camping trips. You can recharge your Yeti 400 from a wall, car or a compatible separate solar panel from Goal Zero. The LCD battery display indicates the current charge level, and will set you back 5 hours by charging it from a wall, or 13 hours for a vehicle.
It’s even got international sockets on it, so it can be used pretty much anywhere you go. For a portable power supply that doesn’t require fuel – you can’t beat the Yeti 400 from Goal Zero.
Trying to decide between this and the Engel Smart Battery Box series 2. Just chasing recommendations.
You sure can replace the battery Damian.
It's something you can do yourself and the batteries are a common size available from any good battery store. As for the Engel Battery Box, this doesn't actually contain a battery, so you'll need to purchase one to go inside.
Otherwise, comparing the two products, if you want to start chaining batteries and solar panels and powering/charging numerous devices such small power packs, mobile phones etc, then the Goal Zero products are a good way to go.
However, the Engel Battery box has the ability to add batteries up to 130 aH, which is a big jump when compared to the 33aH battery in the Yeti, and would be a better choice if you simply want to power a fridge for numerous days in camp. I hope this helps with your decision.
As long as the other solar panel has an 8mm input will it recharge the yeti?
I've called our rep at Goal Zero Australia and he informed me that yes, you can use other solar panels with the Goal Zero Yeti 400 Portable Power Station. He did say though that you need to be careful about overloading the power station. Just make sure that you don't exceed the maximum wattage (120W), maximum voltage (29 volts DC), and make sure that there's not a solar regulator on your panel as there's one built into the power station.
Hi, these are currently showing up as 'pre-order' is there any indication when they will be available?
Hi, when are these available again?
We're hoping that Goal Zero will have more stock in the country and to us within the next fortnight. Unfortunately, the ETA is quite vague at the moment as from our understanding, due to many products being batteries, they need to come to Australia by sea (can't be flown).
Exciting news, your order has left our warehouse! If you'd like to keep an eye on it's journey, click the button below.
