The Goal Zero Yeti 400 can store 400 watts on a full charge and offer several power options. With two sockets for powering devices such as a TV or CPAP as well as USB option for your laptop or cell phone, this unit is highly versatile.
Once power is stored in this portable solar system, you can charge your small appliances as quickly as an electric wall socket. A device like a headlamp can be recharged for up 100 times, while a laptop can be recharged around 3-5 times. For appliances that require a lot more energy, it might be best to go for a solar power kit that has higher total wattage.
The major concern with Goal Zero Yeti 400 is that it is not a complete solar power kit; it is a power pack. However, connecting a solar panel to this device is quite simple, but you have to purchase it separately. The tiniest solar panels on the market will fully charge this portable solar generator from Goal Zero in 40-80 hours, while larger panels will complete the task in as little as nine hours. This is a versatile machine, but it might not be convenient if you are looking for a lightweight unit to go for hikes with.
