The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 is built with a replaceable lithium battery, similar to what you would find in an electric car. Each high-quality battery is meticulously checked and rechecked for safety, and is continuously monitored by an internal, sophisticated management system.
The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 features a real-time informative display, including a runtime/recharge time estimator, as well as a battery level monitor and an output/input meter.
Battery Capacity: 1045Wh (10.8V, 96.8Ah)
Produces 1500W of continuous power and a 3000W surge for running high-power devices
MPPT Included - Includes solar charging optimization module that functions as a maximum power point tracker (MPPT), resulting in up to 40% faster charge times, especially from solar panels.
Easily Rechargeable with no noise, no fumes - Keeping the Goal Zero Yeti 1000 charged and ready is as simple as plugging it in - to an AC outlet or even a solar panel (sold separately). Left alone, it will hold a charge for 3-6 months so it'll be ready for that unexpected blackout. Since it doesn't run on gasoline, the Goal Zero Yeti 1000 is completely safe to run inside a house, tent, or car.
Cold temperatures (below freezing) can impact the Yeti's battery capacity. If you'll be living off-grid in sub-zero conditions, we recommend keeping your Yeti 1000 Lithium in an insulated cooler, connected to a power source (solar panels), and charging your gear. The natural heat generated by the Yeti 1000 Lithium contained in an insulated cooler will keep battery capacity at its highest.
Excellent source of emergency power supply
The Boulder 100 Watt Briefcase Solar Panel is built with strong tempered glass and an aluminum frame with added corner protection for temporary or permanent installation. Composed of two Boulder 50 Solar Panels (100 watts total) chained together and connected by a hinge. Equipped with an integrated kickstand to help get optimal angle to the sun. Included a protective canvas bag for easy carrying.
Best-Use Strategy: When charging gear with the Yeti 1000 Lithium, take note of the LCD Battery Display. If you plug in devices that have a high power requirement (a large refrigerator), the charge level of the Yeti can drop very quickly and you may not get exactly 1000Wh of energy. Also, especially when using the AC power output, the Goal Zero Yeti will be converting the energy from the DC power of the battery to the AC power needed by your device. Although your Goal Zero Yeti has a highly efficient inverter, there is still some energy lost in the conversion and you will not get the full rated capacity of the battery.
There are 2 ways to charge your Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium:
The Sun The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium can be charged by connecting the included solar panel. If you are a standard or light user and use about 30-40% of the power per day we recommend 1 Boulder 100 Solar Panel. If you are a heavy user using all the power in one day, we recommend using multiple Boulder 100 Solar Panels to recharge.
Wall The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium can be recharged from a regular wall outlet in about 18 hours. You can charge your Yeti with solar panels, and a wall charger at the same time.
12V The Goal Zero Yeti 1400 Lithium can now be recharged via 12V DC Input! The 12V 8mm Car Charger allows the user to recharge the Yeti Generator via Car, Truck, RV, Camper or any 12V Cigarette Lighter Input!
The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium Powers your devices in 3 ways:
USB 4 high-speed USB ports (2.4A). Great for your phones, tablets, and wearables.
12V The 12V best charges all your 12V powered devices. (10A, 120W max)
AC Inverter Plug in your device just as you would the wall. There are two AC Outlets (pure-sine wave, 1500W, 3000W surge)
Overview of Included MPPT Solar Charging Optimization Module :
What is MPPT? MPPT stands for Maximum Power Point Tracker. The Solar Charging Optimization Module is an external MPPT and when installed properly, actively monitors the energy source you're using to charge the Goal Zero Yeti Lithium and optimizes the source to maximize power, resulting in up to 40% faster charge times, especially from solar panels. You may also notice better charge times from AC when utilizing the Yeti Lithium's AC charging cable plugged into the module.
How many solar panels can I plug into the module? There are three inputs on the module that can be used at the same time; however, do not exceed more than 22V under standard use, as this can result in damage to the Yeti Lithium and potential bodily injury. We recommend chaining solar panels in parallel (positive to positive, negative to negative, etc). We've taken the guesswork out of chaining when using Goal Zero Boulder Solar Panels, the 8mm blue-ringed connector and combiner cables properly chain our panels together for approved use with the Yeti Portable Power Stations.
Can I plug solar panels into the module and the Goal Zero Lithium input ports at the same time? Yes; however, we recommend using the module's inputs for solar panels since it can optimize the charging efficiency up to 40%. You may even notice up to 20% more efficiency when charging the Yeti Lithium from the wall when using the module.

Works great, but for an emergency backup for mainly the refrigerator, it is very limited.I bought a 3.2 compact fridge to reduce the load in an emergency, but that would only last a couple days. My problem is that I dont have good direct access to the sun some parts of the day, and even when I do, the most input I could get was 60 watts (southern California). Ordered another panel. I should have bought a bigger unit as well. The 6 hour charge time by solar is dreaming. No complaints on the product. Just do your homework better than I did.
1/how long does one last?
2/how much to replace?
3/how are they disposed of/recycled?
The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium battery features approximately 500 Cycles to 80% capacity. The replacement battery is not available at this time, but is expected for release in the near future. A local list of companies that accept batteries to be disposed of or recycled, can be found online. Thank you for your inquiry!
Can you charge the unit with the solar panel while using it? I have a reef tank with multiple pumps and have had it off for extended periods of time while Edison does upgrade work to the area. It's disastrous for the tank!
Absolutely, you will see the longest operation time when used alongside a daylight charge from the solar panels. Thank you for your inquiry!
Can I use any other solar panels to charge the Yeti 1000?
You can use other solar panels via the Anderson Power Pole port as long as the output power of the panels do not exceed 14-30V, up to 20A (240W max). Please let us know if you have any other questions.
I would like to know if there is a picture or video on how to charge it from the solar panels.
We do not have a video of how the solar panels are connected, but the unit is user friendly and features plug and play connectors. Simply connect the 8mm cable from the solar panel (while placed outside in direct sunlight) to the corresponding front of the Yeti 1000, which is conveniently labeled input. Thank you for your inquiry!
