TIPS & TRICKS FOR USING SOLAR PANELS

  1. The solar panel does not hold a charge - it produces power when it is exposed to sunlight.
  2. Place solar panels towards the sun at an angle.
  3. Connect High Power Power to Yeti Power Station.
  4. 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!

WAYS TO CHARGE THE YETI 500X

  • FROM THE SUN
    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.
  • FROM THE WALL
    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.
  • FROM THE CAR
    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

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.

Can I take the Yeti 500X on a plane?

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

How long will it take to charge my Goal Zero Yeti from a Boulder Solar Panel?
