Our Yeti Portable Power Stations are popular for their versatility and durability. Keep yours in top condition for as long as possible by following these six essential maintenance and storage tips.
1. Keep it clean
Keep your power station clean to extend its life and help it work efficiently. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the exterior and remove any dirt or debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or solvents that can damage the casing.
2. Store it in a cool, dry place
Your portable power station should be stored in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing it in direct sunlight or near heat sources. This can cause the battery to overheat and reduce its lifespan.
3. Charge it regularly
Keep your portable power station charged, even when it's not in use. This will help maintain the battery's health and prevent it from losing its charge over time. Charge your Yeti every three months or so to help extend the life of your product, plus keep you prepared for emergency power outages.
4. Use it regularly
It's also important to use your portable power station regularly. This will help prevent the battery from losing its charge and maintain its health. If you're not using it for an extended period of time, make sure to charge it up before storing it.
5. Check the battery level
Our portable power stations all have a built-in LCD display that shows the battery level. Make sure to check this regularly to confirm the battery isn’t getting too low. If it drops below 20%, it's time to recharge it.
6. Use the right cables
When charging or using your portable power station, make sure to use the Goal Zero cables and adapters. Using the wrong ones can damage the battery or cause it to overheat.
Following these simple maintenance and storage tips will keep your power station working well so you count on it whether you need portable power on the road or backup power during an outage at home.
