  • 50 Watts lets you solar charge power banks and power stations to keep laptops charged, run portable fridges, and power essential electronics.
  • Four monocrystalline panels enclosed in a protective case fold down to a compact profile for easy storage and versatility. Hanging loops allow you to strap the panel to vehicles, tents, and more.
  • Features built-in charging cables for use with Goal Zero Yeti Power Stations, Sherpa Power Banks, and USB devices. Integrated 8mm cable lets you chain additional solar panels for faster charge times.


  • The solar panel does not hold a charge - it produces power when it is exposed to sunlight.
  • Place solar panels towards the sun at an angle.
  • Connect High Power Power to Yeti Power Station.
  • Adjust solar panel as the sun moves across the sky.

how it all goes together

Setup is quick and easy. Place the solar panels outdoors in good, direct sunlight. If you have multiple panels, use the Combiner Cables to connect them. Need extra reach? Use the optional Extension Cable to extend your range. The cables and connecters are plug-and-play. Simply match the shape of the plug to the shape of the connector. Plug directly into the input of your Yeti and enjoy endless power!

Solar Panel

Combiner Cable

Extension Cable

Power Station


      Recharge from the sun by connecting a compatible solar panel, either the foldable Nomads or mountable Boulder solar panels. The higher the watts of the panel, the faster the charging times.
      Plug it into the wall using the included 60W power supply for a full recharge in just 10 hours, or plug in with the Yeti X 120W Power Supply to halve that charge time. You can also use any USB-C power supply to charge the power station.
      Plug into your vehicle's 12V outlet using the Goal Zero Yeti Lithium 12V Car Charging Cable. NOTE: Do not attempt to charge your Yeti from a 12V source using any other cable. Doing so may cause damage to the unit.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long will the Yeti run my device?

    Please refer to our runtime chart at 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.

    Can I take the Yeti 500X on a plane?

    No, the lithium battery is over 100Wh and not allowed on planes under FAA regulations.

    Can I chain my Nomads?

    The Nomad 5 and Nomad 10 solar panels are not chainable. The Nomad 20 and 50 can be chained using the 8mm chaining input port on the back of the panel up to 150W. When chaining Nomad 50s (over 150W) or Nomad 100s we recommend using the 8mm to APP Combiner Cable. To chain multiple Nomad Solar Panels together with APP connections, you’ll need to purchase the 4x Anderson Combiner Cable (SKU 98061) from Goal Zero.
