Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got one, then 4 friends did too. I bought this as an emergency backup for my refrigerator and other needed power. Tested it with my 25 cubic ft fridge with normal day time in and out. Full charge to 40% in 18 hours, with normal use. If I were being careful I'm sure it would have been over 24 hrs. I have 3 panels and like the Escape 30 panels better, but they require an adaptor and I don't get anywhere near 30 w from it. More like 17. Well made, very durable, but heavy. I have long cables for my panels because I can't carry the Yeti outside to charge, nor do I want it sitting in the sun all day. So the Yeti sits under a table at the door and I run a 30' extension out to the panels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I've got the Yeti 1250 plus 8 Boulder 50 panels that we use to keep the 110 volt refrigerator running in our 5th wheel trailer while we are on the move. It will power the refrigerator for 18 to 20 hours without a problem. I am planning to expand the capacity with another battery soon as I would like to be able to run a few lights and other things as well as the refrigerator. The only problem I've had since I installed the system is the lack of reliable how-to information, but the questions I've had have been answered promptly by the support personnel. Eventually, I will probably get a second unit as well. Well worth the expense.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yeti 1250 i purchased this system to allow me to work at my cabin in the wilderness. As with all solar, you must be vigilant with your power usage. The Yeti 1250 only produces enough power to run my computer and modem. I have 6 30 watt panels attached and the most I've ever seen them produce is about 100 watts. They are not the type of panels that can charge in overcast conditions either. Overall, it has allowed me to work from the cabin, but I had higher expectations. You decide if it was my expectations or a lack of disclosure on the part of Goal Zero. I would only recommend this product to some who consumes an average of 50 watts for about 8 hours. And that's not a lot of consumption.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good Using for backup for power outages. Neighbors have gas generators that let the world know what you have is available for stealing because they have to be used outside. Tried last night as test (just bought) and will run the fan on my wood stove for 15 hours or TV for 12. Will be doing test on fridge. Does charge slow but its winter and I have a bunch of trees blocking my sun access. Will be daisy chaining 2 batteries because can easily keep them charged. Charging my 1250 right now with 4 boulder 30s outside on a tripod and a 30 feet extension running through dryer vent in wall so yeti stays safely in the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works largely as advertised I purchased the yeti for emergency use, and I have not had the opportunity to fully test it during an actual outage. The unit arrived fully charged, and was relatively easy for one person to assemble on the cart (two people would be better). There were instructions on assembling the cart. Use of the yeti is also rather straight forward -- plug & play. In the direct winter sun of Pennsylvania, I was able to generate 30 watts total using the two included boulder panels -- I was hoping for more. I expect it will be higher later in the year. I plan to add a 100 watt panel via andersen power poles for a quicker recharge. There is a letter warning that running the battery too low will shorten it's useful life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still learning my yeti 1250 Just got yeti on march 19 , plug in one panel which comes with it and at 4 Pm. in PA in give me 26 watts , today on march 23 two panels give me 42-46 watts with 41 degree outside not too bad at all , of cause on cloudy day it a lot less , first impression not bad at all . I want to add extra battery's to have longer run and use higher wattage appliances. Price wise : if I would build my own generator using same battery , same inverter with safety futures and all engineering and outputs I would spend close amount of money . So I'm leaning solar , will keep post more .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goal Zero for Boondocking I have mounted the 1250 in my Jeep which is the Tow Vehicle for my T@B Outback. It charges in motion via a roof rack mounted 100w Solar Panel and the 12vdc plug in the Jeep. When boondocking I add the 4 Boulder 30 Panels mounted on the tripod and top it off with a Yamaha 2000 generator, if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I purchased that 'solar generator' online, and the yeto1250 is so much better. The other one costs a little more, but had smaller batteries, they were gel cell while yeti has AGM. I ripped out the batteries on the old one when they died & got agms. i had to cut a hole in side and run cord! Now, i also got the charge controlelr to connect the boulder panels to regular agm batteries, as backup. I list the only con as pricey- because the one I built has similar specs for 1/2 as much- but i had to build it, and it isn't as simple plug-and-play as the yeti. In the homemade one, the charge controller is separate from the inverter, i had to wire 12V... etc. So either build one or buy the yeti 1250!!

Can this be used on a daily basis?? Am I able to hook up more panels? And or batteries? ??

Asked by: Chazzman23
Hey there! Thanks for reaching out to us. I got in contact with my main girl Desi at Goal Zero, and she gave me the 411. I got all the deets, yo. Ya'll don't even know. She answered all my questions....but she refused to go on a date with me (.........contemplative silence.) Anyway, to answer your questions: yes, you can use this every day. You can use it ALL day every day! And yes, you can hook up to 240 watts of panels. Not too shabby. Also, you can add 3 additional batteries. Woo hoo!! Hope this helps you out.

Could this be used to power a rv or camper , by connecting to an exterior plug like you would at an rv park ? 

Asked by: andrea
Thanks for the question! Yes, this can be used as your power source for the RV or Camper. However, you will need an additional exterior adapter (purchased separately). Hope this helps!
