How the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Works


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Q: What type of battery is in the Yeti 150?
  • A: The Yeti 150 uses a 12V sealed lead-acid battery (AGM), 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 150 is charged?
  • A: To check the charge level of the Yeti 150, 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 150 even when it's not fully charged.
  • Q: My Yeti 150 is beeping, what does that mean?
  • A: Plug your Yeti 150 into a power source, like a solar panel or outlet, as soon as possible. This chirping is to alert you that your Yeti 150's battery is low and needs to be charged.
  • Q: Can I take my Yeti 150 on a plane?
  • A: You sure can. The Yeti 150 contains an advanced, sealed lead-acid battery that is completely safe to bring along on your flight. Bring along your user manual to show the type of battery inside.
  • Q: Is the battery inside my Yeti 150 replaceable?
  • A: Yes. Your Yeti 150 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 150's battery is replaceable.
  • Q: One of the green LED lights on the Output Port buttons turned red, what does that mean?
  • A: You have tripped the over current protection inside the Yeti 150, which usually means your device has pulled too much power. Reset the breaker by pushing the Output Port button twice. If this continues to happen, check and make sure your device is suitable for use with the Yeti 150, then give our customer solutions center a call.
  • Q: How do I know if my device will work with the Yeti 150?
  • 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.

    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 80W of continuous power. This means if your device is pulling more than 80W for an extended period of time, the Yeti 150's inverter will shut off. The Yeti 150's 12V ports allow for 120W of power and might be a better solution if your device is pulling more power than AC inverter can handle.

    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 150.
  • Q: How long will the Yeti 150 run my device?
  • A: All Goal Zero rechargers have a number in their name. These numbers refer to the Watt Hours (Wh), or the amount of energy that can be stored in each battery, and how you'll know if your gear is compatible with each recharger. For example, a 200Wh battery should run a 100W light for 2 hours (200/100=2). If your gear falls within the 150Wh capacity of the Yeti 150, you'll want to check the restrictions on each output ports.

Powering

THE GOAL ZERO YETI 150 POWERS YOUR DEVICE IN 3 WAYS:

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

AC Inverter

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.

BEST-USE STRATEGY

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.
