Why We Like The Yeti 1500X Portable Power Station
New to the Goal Zero family and designed from the ground up, the Yeti Lithium 1500X Portable Power Station is one of the most innovative and versatile portable batteries to be created yet. Built-in surge allowances and multi-stage protection means it's compatible with a wide range of devices, from lights and laptops to power tools and refrigerators, so we can use it during emergency power outages, at base camp on expeditions, when working in the field, or just on an extended weekend camping trip.
There are two ways to charge the Yeti—plug it into a wall charger before trips and have it fully charged within 25 hours. It's also compatible and chainable with Goal Zero's Boulder solar panels (not included), with recharge times ranging from over 100 hours to less than 10, depending on which Boulder model you have and how many of them you have. And if you're wondering just how much juice you'll get out of a full recharge, you can expect it to run a refrigerator for 24 hours, 23+ charges for a laptop, 70+ charges for a smartphone, and 230+ charges for a GoPro or headlamp. So while it may take a while to fully charge the Yeti, it can last you a long while depending on your usage.
The Yeti's award-winning design features an informative display that lets you monitor usage data in real-time, letting you keep an eye on runtime/recharge time estimates, as well as an output and input meter. Goal Zero also included plenty of other information with the Yeti, including storage and downtime maintenance tips, best-use strategy, and cold-weather usage so you can make the most of your power station.

Plenty of Power
I have had smaller Goal Zero Yeti's for past excursions but with the Dometic CFX 75 DZ fridge, two teenage girls and all my photo gear, I was needing something bigger. I jumped on the Yeti 1500X and it was beyond amazing. With lots of clouds and little sun here and there this powered the fridge, charged phones and only used about 20% in almost a 3 day trip. This battery is heavy and you won't want to move it around a lot but once you find a spot for it it will power almost anything you want (even a blender) when your out in the Backcountry overlanding.
