GOAL ZERO Yeti 150 Solar Generator
I like it.
IO bought mine almost a year ago, It came with a bad battery right out of the box. Goal Zero sent me a new battery right away "no charge". I put it in, charged it and put it to work. We have switched much of our lighting to LED in our house. It powered a Lamp in the living room with a very bright LED bulb all evening and only took it down to 60%. I charged it and put it away, I took it out 3 months later to check it like they say too and the battery was no good and would not take a charge. Again Goal Zero sent me a new battery No charge to me, I plugged it in and charged it so far so good the battery is holding a charge. I'm told that you can leave them plugged in they will not over charge.

Just got one of these yesterday for an upcoming trip to Canada and am extremely disappointed. I bought it for the sole purpose of recharging my GoPro batteries during this 10 day trip. I drained all my GoPro batteries and it is on its last 20% after only charging 7 batteries and I will probably get 9 or 10 charges out of it, they claim 25!!! I am thoroughly disappointed that I spent $200 for this when I could have got a $40 portable usb charger with 20,000 mAH and got more charges than this thing while saving a ton of weight and bulk. And it also took 2.5 hours to charge a battery, slower than the outlet but that is expected.

Fully charged, first use, 2 x LED light strips drawing 1.1amp and it was flat in 2.5 hours. Even at 50% draw down of the 14Ah battery I was expecting more like 6 or 7 hours. Hopefully it is defective and they will swap it out.

The Yeti 150 saved my bacon!!!
We a bunch of Goal Zero products but the other night the Yeti 150 really saved my bacon. Due to a bad car accident our power was out for over 5 hours the other night. We have a newborn and to feed her my wife has to pump milk every 2 to 3 hours. When the power went out she was able to plug in to the yet 150 and pump away. Going 5 hours would have been too long and painful for my wife so I am really glad we had this thing on hand. I love it and would recommend it to everyone. You never know when you are going to need a little power boost.
