Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the Yeti run my device?
Please refer to our runtime chart at https://www.goalzero.com/product-features/portable-power-stations/#chargetime. Here’s a quick and dirty lesson in power:
All Goal Zero power products have a number in their name, ex. Venture 30, Flip 36, Goal Zero Yeti 500X. 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 power bank or power station. For example, a 500Wh battery should run a 100W light for 5 hours (500/100=5). If your gear falls within the 500Wh capacity of the Yeti, you’ll want to check the restrictions on each of the output ports. When you’re deciding on what to power from your new Goal Zero power bank or power station, it’s helpful to look into your device’s wattage consumption.
Are the Boulder Solar Panels waterproof?
Yes. The Boulders are designed to withstand the elements, so they’re great for permanent and semi-permanent installations. What you’re recharging from the Boulders is what needs to stay dry, so keep those power banks and power stations covered up and protected from the dust, rain, and snow.
Can I mount the Boulder Solar Panels to my roof?
Yes, for mountable Boulder panels, take a look at the Boulder 50 and 100 Solar Panels. The Boulder Briefcases are not designed to be mounted permanently to a fixture; this briefcase fold-and-go style allows you to be more portable.
