    Yeti 400 Solar Generator

    Whether camping in style and comfort or powering up during an outage, the Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator is today's quiet, non-stinky answer to yesterday's smoky behemoth. This portable generator charges up via wall charger, car charger, or the Goal Zero Nomad 27 or Boulder 30 solar panels. Then it's ready to power up your laptop, TV, lights, cameras, smartphone, etc. And if you're powering up during an outage at your home, you won't get lightheaded from the fumes or a headache from the noise. Out at camp, you can prep dinner with some light, do a dance to real music, rather than your friend's bad guitar playing, and charge your phone for uploading pics of your killer campsite.

    A convenient pop-up handle makes this 30-pound generator easy to carry. And its compact size for such power means it won't overwhelm the room or camp area. Note: A 4.7-millimeter to 8-millimeter adapter is included. If you have an older Boulder 30 panel, call Goal Zero customer support for a free 8-millimeter adapter.

    Car Camping LIFESAVER

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This power bank is the absolute nicest "non-essential" thing to have on a car camping trip. If you like to work or have electronics (like a camera) on a trip this thing is unbeatable, especially on a trip with a full car. If you're planing on a week away from your phone, or don't bring a laptop or camera on camping trips, you can honestly live without this. HOWEVER, if you're planning on keeping your phone charged so you can text your sweet mother and let her know that yes you are still alive, I can't overstate how nice this thing is to have. Charging 2-4 phones plus multiple camera batteries and a laptop all at once while driving is UNBEATABLE. We mostly used it to charge phones and camera batteries which don't suck as much charge and it lasted us the entire week on one charge. My only complaint is this thing is so heavy. I would basically recommend giving it its own seat in the car and leaving it there. As other reviews have mentioned, depending on your usage, the battery really does last awhile. If you really want to extend the life, you can pair it with solar panels to keep it goin!

    So awesome.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This really made camping suave! We used it for two small fans while camping in some HOT weather. It gave us plenty of power along with phone charging as needed and lighting during the evenings. I would highly recommend this to bring your outside experience to the next level.

    Lifesaver!

      I used this generator when I went on a big road trip through Wyoming in the heat of summer. I had my dogs in the truck bed and needed something to keep the power going when the truck wasn't running. This thing worked wonders to keep my truck's homemade AC unit cooling. I know my dogs appreciated it! I also did not have to charge this thing once for the entire trip. It's heavy and well-made. I absolutely love it and can't wait to use it for more trips.

      I have the power!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have seriously gained some serious momentum in my car camp kit with this. I can do so much more glamping my way through the mountains. Instead of a heater in the sub-freezing temps, I carry a heater blanket and toast up my sleeping bag. Seriously- TOASTY. Not to mention that I can pair it with a couple of panels and keep using the power for weeks on end. Get a good pair of panels like the boulder 50 or the Nomad sets. I have used both and the boulder really takes it for the day to day living off this thing.

      UNLIMITED POWER

        This batter takes about 13 hours to charge in a wall, so after a night and some change, it's ready to fuel all sorts of shenanigans. It's heavy at around 30lbs but perfect for car camping/tail gating fum.

        Keeping the Trager Scout Grill pictured powered long enough to cook our burgers, kabobs, and salmon took maybe 35-45% of its battery? Could be less, but that's what I recall. That was at least an hour+ for the grill to heat up and then cook everything.

        For phones, small electronics, and anything else a campsite might need, this would be absolutely perfect.

        Highly recommend.

        UNLIMITED POWER

        Car Camping Must Have!

          The Yeti 400 is great for car camping. The battery has a ton of power to power all your devices. We had phones, speakers, bike computers, and a laptop charging from this battery for an entire weekend.

          Perfect for week-long trips.

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Albeit heavy, this power station has served me well on various camping trips and yurt trips. It's been able to charge all the electronics that me and my friends have for week-long stays, without even getting near low battery. We have cameras, phones, speakers, lights, and more.

          Nursing Mothers...Buy this and go camp!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I used the Goal Zero on my first night away from my 5-month-old so that I could bring my electric pump and keep up my supply vs. the hand pump. I tucked this guy under my cot, and it made for convenient pumping any time of day or night. The second use was for our first trip with babe so we could plug in the Owlet (used for 2 nights, battery life was still at 100%). I was able to bundle him up good and slept much better knowing that his monitor would go off if he couldn't roll himself back over in his puffy bunting. AWESOME product for everyday charging, OR...for nursing/worrisome mothers :)

          Keeps the lights on

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Went on an overnight MTB camping trip where we slept in the van. At night I sleep with a small fan and on high it pulls 18w. I ran this for about 9 hours, and charged two phones overnight and we still had the display showing 60%. It was also down to 30ºF during the night so I'm sure that affects the battery life a bit as well.
          I haven't had a chance to test it with solar panels but I'm sure it would work just fine with those as well.
          I do have a 110V mini fridge in my van and it will NOT power that. Ok it's bigger than a mini but not full sized by any means.
          I feel if you where to pair this with a Goal Zero solar panel it would work really well for a multi-day trip powering cameras, phones, Garmins etc. You know all the stuff you don't need in nature. Ok, well I need the fan.

          Awesome Power Source for the Adventurer!

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          I got to test one of these out on my most recent week long adventure. I was surprised with how long the battery lasted and how often I used it. You get tons of output options so you can charge multiple devices at a time no matter the plug you have for each device.
          I used it for charging our phones, gopros, laptops, and lights. It helped tremendously when we were away from any power source for days on end but needed to keep our cameras charged to get the content we needed! Another awesome feature is the display on the battery that shows you exactly how much juice you have left, which is nice to prioritize the charging of certain devices over others when you are getting low on battery.
          The only gripe is the weight, however it's not terrible to carry around. They came out with a Lithium version which is about 10lbs lighter :)

          Well Worth It!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I absolutely love this thing! Used it for several week-long trips in Moab. I charged it before I left and only used half the battery life over the course of the week. I used it mainly just for charging phones, cameras and blue tooth speakers. I did not experiment charging with solar panels but I've heard they work great. It is about as heavy as a car battery so if you are planning on doing anything other than car camping I would definitely go with the lithium-ion version, as it is about half the weight, but if you are just car camping there is no need to spend the extra $150.

          Well worth it!

          This Beast is Worth It!!!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          We took this on a six day road trip across the southwestern desert. We were never really around places where we could charge but we were constantly in the car. This is the fastest iPhone charger I’ve ever used. We also used it to charge all of our camera batteries and MacBook Pro and we barely put a dent in the overall power storage of this unit. One of the many features we really liked was the ability to only turn on the charger for the products we were using. Eg. if you are charging an iPhone you only need to turn on the USB Charging Ports, this saves overall power and makes the unit much more efficient. It weighs a ton but we put kept it in the floorboards of the car and never really had to move it. Without this unit we would have wasted a lot of time waiting in random places trying to charge up all of our essential electronics.

          Crazy battery life

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This thing is a powerhouse, living in a van there are lots of things that need power, and sometimes that's a PS3 and a 30in tv and yes it will run both for about two and a half hours. Absolutely love this thing and would recommend it to anyone living in a van or anyone that needs a backup generator.

          Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This goal zero yeti generator is amazing. It charges up pretty quick. I use mine to charge my phone, laptop, camera etc. It is great to take with you on road trips or camping trips. Also the generator will hold its charge for quite awhile before you need to re-charge it.

          Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've had this battery for about a year now and it has come in handy quite a bit.

          I took it on a 6 week road trip where we didn't have access to electricity most of the time. I am so glad we had this with. We used it to charge phones, GoPros, portable speakers, and to light up our night time cribbage games. During that trip we only had to re-charge the bad boy twice. I plan on getting the solar panel for it soon, but even just charging it at rest stops here and there is fine. It charges up fairly quick.

          OVERLY STOKED

            Just got back from 2 weeks on the road with zero electrical support, besides this beast. All I can say is it worked flawlessly... All ports worked well, love seeing the input output numbers on the display and it's as quiet as can be. It charged numerous labtops, dslrs, GoPros, phones, speakers, GZ 250 lanterns, flashlights and was only drained to 40 percent of the entire trip. I did run my small Nomad 20 solar pannel as much as I could usually bringing in about 13 watts to bring in some juice, but other than that no other help. Spend the money, it is solid, reliable and down right awesome to have in your gear quiver.

            OVERLY STOKED

            How did I get by without this?

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            For anyone that car camps this is a must have. It lasts for a long time if you only use it to charge a phone or camera. We have an old 1992 camper that we take out each weekend. We use this to charge laptops, phones, GoPro, cameras, and fan. Eventually we're going to get a solar panel to trickle charge the battery, but we haven't needed it yet. Overall, this is a very nice thing to have when car camping, especially if you're away from an outlet for a long period of time.

            Goal Zero Yeti

              I bought this Goal Zero Generator for my 82 camper van. It's amazing - I use it to power my lap top, cell phone, portable speakers, etc. If you spend a significant amount of time on the road I highly recommend it!

              Portable Power

              • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

              I bought this for an upcoming road trip. Planning to power cameras, laptops, and cell phones with it. I used it last weekend on a short trip to test it out and it worked great!

              Unanswered Question

              If solar powered all the time would this be enough to power two fans for horse stalls during summer and heated buckets during winter? If so what solar panal?

              How long will this unit hold a charge ... thinking of hurricane season ... not going to charge while the 'cane is raging. Thanks

              It is advised to keep it fully charged as much as possible. You can charge it with an outlet. In theory, if you have a power outage, your uint would be fully charged and ready for use. The amount of time that it lasts depends on what you have plugged into it.
