Plug in your device just as you would the wall.
WHAT TO POWER FROM THE GOAL ZERO YETI 150:
Smartphones, MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, E-readers, tablets, Goal Zero Lights, Car Adapters, Laptops, DSLR Cameras, CPAP, Display Monitors, etc.
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.
When recharging gear with your Yeti 150, take note of the LCD Battery Display. If you plug in devices that have a high power requirement (a state-of-the-art gaming laptop), the charge level of your Yeti 150 can drop very quickly and you may not get exactly 150Wh of power. On the flipside, if you're recharging devices that draw power more slowly (a tablet), you will get closer to 150Wh from your Yeti 150. 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 the Yeti 150's battery capacity. If you'll be living off-grid in sub-zero conditions, we recommend keeping your Yeti 150 in an insulated cooler, and connected to a power source (sola panels). The natural heat generated by the Yeti 150 contained in an insulated cooler will keep battery capacity at its highest.
STORAGE AND DOWNTIME MAINTENANCE
Having your Yeti 150 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 150 is charged and ready to go all day, every day.
If you can't keep your Yeti 150 plugged into a power source during storage, fully charge your Yeti 150 every 3 months and store it in a cool, dry place. Failure to maintain your Yeti 150 by following these steps can result in battery damage which will void the product warranty.
WHAT PRODUCTS ARE NOT SUITABLE TO USE WITH YOUR YETI 150
Modified-sine wave inverters, like those used in the Yeti 150, are the most common inverters on the market. They work great with small electronic equipment, usually anything that includes an AC power cable with the box, like what your laptop comes with.
Some or all of the following devices are not suitable for use with a modified sine wave inverter and should not be used with the Yeti 150. Any such use is entirely at the owner's risk and Goal Zero does not accept any responsibility for damage or injury resulting from such use: Fluorescent lights with dimming function, Power tools employing "solid state" power or variable speed control, digital clocks with radios, and sewing machines with speed control.
