How the Goal Zero Yeti 400 Works


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Q: What type of battery is in the Yeti 400?
  • A: The Yeti 400 uses a 12V, 33Ah sealed lead-acid battery (AGM), and similar to what is found in your car. Here are some basic facts about AGM batteries:

    *AGM batteries should be kept full at all times.

    *AGM batteries last longer if you do not drain them completely. This stems from the "battery memory myth" in old rechargeable batteries.
  • Q: How do I know if my Yeti 400 is charged?
  • A: To check the charge level of the Yeti 400, refer to the LCD Battery Display. When lit up, you'll see a battery outline with 5 segments, indicating the current charge level. You can turn on the Battery Display by pushing one of the power buttons above each output port. It is ok to use your Yeti 400 even when it's not fully charged.
  • Q: My Yeti 400 is beeping, what does that mean?
  • A: Plug your Yeti 400 into a power source, like a solar panel or outlet, as soon as possible. This chirping is to alert you that your Yeti 400's battery is low and needs to be charged.
  • Q: Can I take my Yeti 400 on a plane?
  • A: No. Under FAA regulations you are not allowed to take any battery exceeding 100Wh on a plane. For the most up to date information visit FAA Pack Safe
  • Q: Is the battery inside my Yeti 400 replaceable?
  • A: Yes. Your Yeti 400 depends on an advanced lead-acid battery to power your gear, and like all other batteries, one day it will make the journey to the battery graveyard. Lucky for you, the Yeti 400's battery is replaceable.
  • Q: What do the different display options mean?
  • A: Your Yeti 400's LCD display is an advanced feature designed to help you better understand power and monitor your consumption. In Input side reflects the amount of power your Yeti 400 is receiving while it's charging. The Output side indicates the amount of power the devices you have plugged in are pulling out of the Yeti 400 - in the form of Amps, Volts, Watts, Amp Hours and Watt Hours.

    You can use the numbers displayed in Watts to estimate runtimes. For example, if you have a light plugged in that is pulling 100W, you can estimate the Yeti 400 will run the light for about 4 hours (Yeti Wh/Device W = runtime in hours; 400/100 = 4 hours).

    Watt Hours (Wh) and Amp Hours (Ah) represent the amount of power being pulled per hour. This number continues to accumulate with each use of your Yeti and can be manually reset whenever desired.
  • Q: Can I power devices from the Anderson Power Pole ports on the side of the Yeti 400?
  • A: No. There is no under-voltage protection built into the Anderson PowerPole ports on the side of the Yeti 400, meaning if you try to power devices from these ports you could damage the battery. These ports are meant for chaining other Yeti 400's or Extreme 350's for longer runtimes.
  • Q: What does a pure-sine wave inverter mean?
  • A: When it comes to power, you might have heard the letters DC and AC thrown around. DC stands for Direct Current, and is the only type of power that can be stored in a battery. AC stands for Alternating Current, which is the type of power your devices use when they're plugged into the wall. An inverter is required to change DC output to AC output and requires a small amount of power for the change. You can see this by turning on the AC port and looking at the output on the LCD display.

    A pure-sine wave inverter, like the one found in your Yeti 400, produces an output that is exactly the same as supplied by an AC wall plug in your house. Although integrating a pure-sine wave inverter takes more components, it produces power output that makes it compatible with almost all AC electric devices you use in your house.

    So in the end, the pure-sine wave inverter allows your Yeti 400 to safely power almost everything under 400 Watts in your house that you would normally plug into the wall.
  • Q: How do I know if my device will work with the Yeti 400?
  • A: First, you'll need to determine the amount of power your device requires. This may require some research on you end, a good online search or reading the user guide for your device should suffice. To be compatible with the Yeti 400, you should use devices that require less than 300W.

    Second, you will need to check the capacity for the individual output ports. For example, the AC port is monitored by an inverter that allows for 300W of continuous power. This means if your device is pulling more than 300W for an extended period of time, the Yeti 400's inverter will shut off.

    Once you know your device is compatible, you'll want to determine how long you'll be able to power your gear from the Yeti 400.
  • Q: How long will the Yeti 400 run my device?
  • A: All Goal Zero rechargers have numbers in their name. These numbers refer to the Watt Hours (Wh), or the amount of energy that can be stored in each battery, and can help estimate how long your gear will run from each recharger. For example, a 400Wh battery should run a 100W light for 4 hours (400/100=4). If your gear falls within the 400Wh capacity of the Yeti 400, you'll want to check the restrictions on each of the output ports.

Powering

THE GOAL ZERO YETI 400 POWERS YOUR DEVICE IN 3 WAYS:

USB - The USB port best charges all your medium size USB powered devices.

12V - The 12V best charges all your medium 12V powered devices.

AC Inverter - Plug in your device just as you would the wall.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO CHARGE YOUR DEVICE FROM GOAL ZERO POWER PACKS?

It takes the same amount of time to charge your device from a Goal Zero power pack as it does from the wall.

BEST-USE STRATEGY

When recharging gear with your Yeti 400, take note of the LCD  Battery Display. If you plug in devices that have a high power requirement, the charge level of your Yeti 400 can drop quickly and you may not get exactly 400Wh of power. On the flipside, if you're recharging devices that draw power more slowly (a tablet), you will get closer to 400Wh from your Yeti 400. If you're experiencing shorter runtimes, you may want to check the device's power requirements.

COLD WEATHER USAGE

Cold temperatures (below freezing) can impact Yeti 400's battery capacity. If you'll be living off-grid in sub-zero conditions, we recommend keeping your Yeti 400 in an insulated cooler, and connected to a power source (solar panels). The natural heat generated by the Yeti 400 contained in an insulated cooler will keep battery capacity at its highest.

STORAGE AND DOWNTIME MAINTENANCE

Having your Yeti 400 connected to a power source, like a solar panel or wall outlet, between adventures or while in storage keeps its battery healthy and topped off. This prolongs battery life and will ensure your Yeti 400 is charged and ready to go all day, every day.

If you can't keep your Yeti 400 plugged into a power source during storage, fully charge your Yeti 400 every 3 months and store it in a cool, dry place. Failure to maintain your Yeti 400 by following these steps can result in battery damage which will void the product warranty.

CHAINING YOUR YETI

You can chain your Yeti 400 to other Yeti 400's to extend runtimes.

When additional batteries are chained to the Yeti 400, you will experience increased charge times - this is a result of having to charge up the chained batteries in addition to the Yeti 400.

**The Yeti 400 is NOT chainable with the Yeti 1250 - the internal batteries are not the same size. You can chain the Yeti 400 to the discontinued Extreme 350 Power Pack.

NOMAD 28 PLUS SOLAR PANEL - HOW IT WORKS

Charging phones, batteries and other USB-powered devices from the Nomad 28 Plus is as easy as plugging in. Open the Nomad 28 Plus and face the panel toward the sun and check the Solar Intensity Indicator for current solar conditions. 2 or more lights, you're good to go. Then plug in your phone or recharger into the junction box and charge up.

All the cables you need to recharge Sherpa Power Packs and Goal Zero Yeti Portable Power Stations are included in the back of the Nomad 28 Plus. The same cable can be used to chain the Nomad 28 Plus with other chainable Nomad Plus and Nomad Solar Panels.

JUNCTION BOX + SOLAR INTENSITY INDICATOR

This is where the brains of the Nomad 28 Plus live. Several key components work together to ensure you have the best solar charging experience, including the Solar Intensity Indicator. These 4 LED lights are indicative of current solar conditions and give you an idea of how well your gear will charge.

Once you plug into the Nomad 28 Plus, the lights will blink in accordance with how fast your gear is charging. Think you should be seeing more lights? Try re-positioning the Nomad 28 Plus toward the sun and watch how the lights and speed of charge indicator change. The best charging scenario for phones and other USB-powered devices is 2 or more lights.

AUTO RESTART

The Nomad 28 Plus features an auto restart that's smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, the Nomad 28 Plus knows the difference between a device that has reached a fully charged state and one that disconnects due to environmental causes (i.e., lack of sunlight, shadow, solar eclipse, etc). When the latter is detected, the Nomad 28 Plus will automatically reconnect the charging device, no extra work on your part is needed.

KICKSTAND

The Nomad 28 Plus's detachable kickstand allows you to be as lightweight as you need to be. Leave it attached with the magnets and it pops out to an optimal angle for positioning toward the sun. It also provides natural shade and a vented pocket for devices you have plugged in.

CHAINING

Chaining panels is a great way to collect more power from the sun and recharge devices quicker. You can chain up to 150W of solar panels together, that would be about five Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panels; however we don't recommend more than four in a chain since there will be loss of voltage over a long distance. The farther the power has to travel through cables, from panel to panel, the more power you will lose.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Q: Is the Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panel Waterproof?
  • A: Yes. We've gone to great lengths to ruggedize the Nomad 28 Plus; including beefing up the manufacturing process with advanced lamination techniques so it'll slough off rain and snow. However, if the junction box gets soaking wet, we recommend letting it dry out before plugging in.
  • Q: Does the Nomad 28 Plus have a built-in battery?
  • A: No. We made the Nomad 28 Plus to be as modular and lightweight as possible, that meant selling batteries as an optional accessory. You can either plug your phone or device directly into the Nomad 28 Plus, or pair it with one of our rechargers to store power for later (like at night when you go inside). We recommend a Goal Zero Sherpa Power Pack or Yeti Portable Power Station with the Nomad 28 Plus.
  • Q: Is this chainable with other Nomad panels?
  • A: Yes, but only on some Goal Zero Nomad Solar Panels. You can plug the Charge Cable into the chaining ports on older Nomad Solar Panels. The Nomad 28 Plus cannot be chained with the Nomad 7 Plus or Nomad 7 Solar Panels.
  • Q: How does the Solar Intensity Indicator work?
  • A: Science. We can't give away all our secrets. For real though, our engineers developed patent-pending electronic brains for the Nomad 28 Plus that ensures you have the best solar charging experience possible. Part of the electronics include an advanced current sensor (way better than a voltmeter) and unique maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller to optimize the USB output. What you need to know is when conditions are right, you can plug a phone into the Nomad 28 Plus and charge it directly from the sun. You’ll know the conditions are right by checking out the Solar Intensity Indicator.
