Slept Like a Baby with my CPAP powered by a Yeti 400
September 27, 2017
I purchased a Yeti 400 primarily to run my CPAP machine. I used it for the first time over the weekend and it worked great! I found my machine used less battery power with the humidifier set on the low end of the range. I topped off the Yeti 400 each day with a vehicle charger and was able to have enough power to get me through 3-nights of CPAP usage and an iPad charge.

The unit is very well made and I couldn't be happier with its performance! Great design Goal Zero!
Pros
  • Output options
  • Capacity
  • Charging options
Cons
  • 12v. charging cable impossible to find in the after market and should have been included in the kit
Best UsesCamping Electronic device output during power outages

weather the storm
December 28, 2016
The Yeti 400 is a great addition to a Goal Zero solar tech array. It's already proven to be invaluable when the power went out overnight during a PG&E event caused by a rain and wind storm in San Francisco last week, when about 10,000 of our neighbors lost power overnight. We had the Yeti on reserve to run wifi, phones and a laptop.
Pros
  • Ready when you need it
Cons
  • A bit heavy at 29 lbs
Best UsesBackup power, camping, remote area portable power.

I will be using my a yeti 400 in the summer for camping.   How should I store the Yeti the other 9 months?
1 Answer
Keep the system indoors, away from any moisture in a temperature controlled environment (32-104 degrees). If you cannot keep it plugged into a power source we recommend recharging it every month or so when not in use. Thank you for your inquiry!

Sherry
from Idaho asked:
October 9, 2016
I am thinking about this for camping. Would this let me hook up a coffee maker and run it? Small appliances for cooking or a hair dryer? How does a person figure out what type of appliance would work with this product. I'm sorry, I know this question probably sounds ridiculous but I was curious. I am also a photographer with studio lighting that (I believe) is short bursts 400 to 800 watts could I use it for this purpose as well?
1 Answer
This unit provides 396 Watt Hours and has an inverter maximum output of 300 watts continuous. So first off anything over 300 watts of running watts will not work with this unit and if you actually plugged in something that drew around 300 watts it would draw the batteries down in about an hour or so. Coffee makers and hair dryers draw a lot of power and are typically not a good fit with solar.. they seem like small appliances but can draw anywhere from 1000-1200 watts.

from Lacey, WA asked:
July 5, 2016
Will the yeti 400 run a 1.0 amp 120v ac chest freezer, and for how long
1 Answer
The Yeti 400 would run the Freezer Chest for around 8 hours, however you would be draining the battery down to empty, which we do not recommend. Typically you do not want to draw the battery down past half, so it would run the Freezer Chest for around 4 hours with best practices. A better fit for your application would be the Yeti 1250. http://www.earthtechproducts.com/yeti-1250-solar-generator.html If you have any questions pertaining to the Yeti 1250 please feel free to ask. Thank you.

don
from Lacey, WA asked:
July 3, 2016
Can the generator be charged with the panels at the same time it is being used to run an appliance(small AC fridge)
1 Answer
Yes, the generator's battery bank would be recharged as it was being used, which would make the unit function more effectively and keep your battery bank full for a longer period of time. Based on the item mentioned, you may get a few hours of operation from the Yeti 400. However, the Yeti 1250 has 3 times the battery capacity and may be a better option. Please take a look at the link below: http://www.earthtechproducts.com/yeti-1250-solar-generator.html If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. Thank you!
