Great product. Delivery as promised with great customer service

Good Intro to Solar Backup
Basic instructions, lacking in expansion options. Charged iPad & iPhone and tested it on a new GE frig (couldn't find the wattage for the frig after and extensive search). Had it on for about 24 hrs and still registered 20% left on the unit. Will have to call for info on what I can do to expand the capacity but I read the reviews and that gave me some idea. Haven't had the chance to hook up the solar panels (it's winter, 10in. of snow and 18 degrees out) but seems like it would be easy to figure out.
ProsEasy to use right out of the box (if you can lift it...110 lbs). The attached cart is a definite plus.
Best UsesSeems it would be a viable option for power outage after some expansion. This is why I acquired it to begin with.

Goal zero yeti 1250 generator
Great product, was able to run a cpap for six days before having to recharge. Ran a 32 inch TV and satellite receiver for over 14 hours without charging.
ProsSilent, able to use indoors, no hassle setup and use.
ConsA little heavy.
Best UsesPower outage backup.

Backup to the Backup
I bought this as back up to my natural gas back up generator. Very nice unit and can chain additional batteries to extend run time. Tested it overnight on refrigerator and whole day with only 50% use of battery. I wish the kit came with one 90W panel instead of two 30W panels. I run the light a lifes off this unit to provide light in dark areas of basement.
ProsKit came with cart to make moving around easier.
ConsNeed special adapter to chain additional batteries, would be better to just have terminal posts so could connect other batteries with standard ring terminal cables.
Best UsesEmergency power during prolonged power outages, especially if chains up to 3 additional batteries.

How many years can I expect this battery to last? I haven't used it much but occasionally plug it in to try to recharge the battery but it won't hold a charge.
1 Answers
Typically, the battery should be replaced after 3-5 years. When not in use, the Yeti 1250 should be maintained via solar input or AC input. Thank you for your inquiry!

from San Diego asked:
September 11, 2017
How long will this battery last without using it much & occasionally plugging it in to keep it charged?
1 Answers
The operation time is based on the watt draw of the items being powered. The higher the watt draw, the quicker the Yeti 1250 will be drained. When not in use, the Yeti 1250 should be maintained via solar input or AC input. Thank you for your inquiry!

Would this be a suitable option for a job site charger platform for power tools? Not overly familiar with the options but I didn't see anything for 18 volt batteries.
1 Answers
Absolutely, if you are simply plugging in your battery charger for your power tools or other corded power tools that will work no problem as long as the wattage does not exceed 1200 watts.

Is it possible to also hook up a wind turbine to help with charging when the sun is n to shining.
1 Answers
The Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Solar Generator Kit is capable of being used in combination with a wind turbine. However, it needs to be hooked up through the Anderson Power pole adapter on the back of the Yeti Generator. You will also require a separate charge controller to keep the wind turbine from over charging the batteries. Thank you for your inquiry!

June 25, 2016
What wattage solar panels needed,any special connection required?
1 Answers
The particular kit comes standard with two 30 watt solar panels that connect via 8mm barrel pin ends that are built on to the solar panel cable. You can use up to a total of 240 watts of solar power with the Yeti 1250. If you are possibly looking to use panels other than goal zero panels then you would have to use an MC4 Solar to AP Adapter Cable. Thank you and have a nice day.
