Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I received one of these Yeti 150 solar generator's for a Christmas present from my Daughter, 2 years ago. My wife bought me 2 of the lite-a-life lights. We use these at our cabin in the mountains. We don't have electricity and use solar panels and batteries for power. This lights up the whole cabin. I have also used it here at home during a power outage. I will always have at least one of these in my home and cabin. It is portable and easy to carry most anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for home and away! We bought this to have for our travels, but have used it as much as home as when we're on the road. It holds a charge well, and is superb for being able to recharge multiple items at once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power to the people... We use the Yeti 150 to bring power our backyard Tipi. Provides lighting at night + recharging phone & tablet. Also power a 110V Wifi repeater - no need to run an extension cord. With the 15W panel, it recharges in <1 day for full power all that night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as expected Very easy to use! I bought this a month ago for a trip to the our island. It worked great! It recharged, my phone, her phone, and our Lighthouse 250 60% solid mark. I charged the Yeti up the next day with overcast skies to partly cloudy skies using my Nomad 7 and Nomad 20 chained together it Recharged it to 100% solid in a little over 5 hours I was very VERY impressed. Now fast fwd to the next day. We charged both phones the Lighthouse 250 and the iPad I have which was down only to 75% or so.. Next morning was VERY sunny not a cloud in the sky. Now here is my confusion It was down to 40% and 4 hours of Better Sun conditions yieded seemingly very little change in charge state the Yeti charged only to show 60% blining when charging and 60% solid when not charging but Does it seem odd to only grab less than 20% when having better sun? I will charge it up fully tonight and see how it acts. But overall I cannot complain We did use it harder the second day, I do love the product as it worked for us well. I just hope I dont have a bad battery or something after one use, I will look back on this review in September we will be out there for 3 nights and 4 days. That will obviously be a better test on how it holds up and performs. I am thinking of getting a 100W panel to hook to it to charge also. Please note I chose Pricey as it is a little bit But poor value No Its a nice little package that is put together well and as long as It comes around for me its a good unit for what we need

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portable Power I love the Yeti 150. I did have some issues with the cord when I first received it, but I contacted customer service and got it sorted out, thanks! I also have the Switch 10 kit, which I bring everywhere with me (the personal fan piece is AMAZING in the summers), and the Yeti 150 is the next bump up for me in solar charging. I will definitely be getting more Goal Zero products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought this device last October and have used it several times since then. I love the product! It does exactly what it says it will do, can't ask for more than that! Be aware the product is heavier than it looks, so pay attention to the specified weight if that's a concern for you. It's very simple to maintain, charges well with my Nomad 20 panel and charges iPads and iPhones with ease. I do want to say something about customer service: the first Yeti 150 I received was defective. It wouldn't hold a charge no matter what I did. I emailed customer support and they we're on it right away! I received my new Yeti promptly, paid nothing for the return of the defective unit and have been a satisfied user since! This company stands by their products, so purchase with confidence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underpowered Just got one of these yesterday for an upcoming trip to Canada and am extremely disappointed. I bought it for the sole purpose of recharging my GoPro batteries during this 10 day trip. I drained all my GoPro batteries and it is on its last 20% after only charging 7 batteries and I will probably get 9 or 10 charges out of it, they claim 25!!! I am thoroughly disappointed that I spent $200 for this when I could have got a $40 portable usb charger with 20,000 mAH and got more charges than this thing while saving a ton of weight and bulk. And it also took 2.5 hours to charge a battery, slower than the outlet but that is expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for techies I wasn't exactly sure what use I would have for this when I bought it, but couldn't pass on a great deal. Now, my camping trips will never be the same. With a growing family, the best/easiest way for us to get outdoors is to go car camping. The best way to capture the fun we're having is my my GoPro cameras. While GoPro is not known for battery life, the yeti 150 is. I can be camping for multiple days, recharging GoPro batteries, both mine and my wife's phones and handheld gps units without having to worry about running out of juice. If I know we are going to be out longer or in more remote areas, I'll throw in a couple of Boulder 15 panels and keep things topped off. Also, I love to shoot night lapse photos with my GoPro. In this situation,I need to keep the camera on and shooting for up to 12 hours. The Yeti 150 handles this without a problem. Outside of camping, I love having this in the car for long road trips. It is great for keeping iPads topped off and less strain on the car's electrical system. Finally, on nice days, nothing beats working on the laptop out in the yard. Well I'm not always at 100% on the computer when the sun decides to shine, but that doesn't matter. With my Yeti 150 I can plug in the laptop and get back to work. For not having a plan for this great tool, it sure has come in handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't last long I bought this for an overseas trip working with international disaster relief. I used it a few times and it was great. I left it with my family and they used it for a few months then it stopped working altogether. Poor quality battery that goes bad. Same thing happened to the Escape 150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for field laboratory investigations We are using Goal Zero battery packs to power a small field incubator for microbial water quality analysis. We previously had successfully used the Goal Zero Sherpa 120 Power Pack, but have recently switched to the new Yetti 150. While the Yetti is a heavier unit, we are finding the multitude of outlet types (plug, car adapter, etc.) and that the inverter is enclosed as one package has really been beneficial to streamline our laboratory power operations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti 150 Exceeds Expectations I purchased the Yeti 150 to provide an easily transportable, reliable power source to run an iPad, iPhone and modem at a small ranch in Idaho which has no installed electricity. My goal was to ensure that I had sufficient power to run my gear for at least 24 hours before needing recharging. The Yeti 150 far surpased my expectations. It is compact, hardly weighs more tha a bag of potatoes and is a simple one step plug-in to recharge using either my portable generator or the Nomad 27 Solar panels. While I have been careful to manage my power, I nonetheless found that Yeti 150 easily supports all my needs for well over 24 hours. Further, using the Nomad 27 Solar panels, I am able to fully recharge in the bright Idaho sun in about 5 hours with a Yeti 150 depleted to 20%. The Yeti 150-Nomad 27 system is a perfect match for power-re-charging and the best part is that I no longer need to hear the racket from my portable generator during re-charge. Bravo to Goal Zero for engineering a superb product! My highest recommendation to anyone seeking an easy to use, immanently portable, reliable system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Engineered Battery I had the original 150 bowling pin shaped battery and worked well until it sat in the garage too long without being recharged.. not making the same mistake. This one is much better as it has a monitoring readout and every in/out puts you need. I will use it for my GZ lights and recharging devices in my GO Trailer. It should last me for a week or more before recharging. This is a more compact and efficient design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work on First Try I got mine as a catalogue gift for many years of service at my company. I could choose anything from the catalogue and decided on this after weeks of searching.That was 3.5 years ago and I tried to use it for the 1st time after being charged for 3.5 years and nothing. My girlfriend had a power outage at her work and took it as a backup a few days ago. After plugging in a device and tapping the button, the light came on, then turned off. I checked the documentation and did a reset according to the instructions and still nothing.I'm glad I did not buy a second one and glad this was a company gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Versatile Powers my Meade LX90-ACF 8” just fine. Grabbed a used Boulder 30 for it. The Boulder seems to adequately charge this completely portable power supply. I’m late to the game, but Goal Zero is the real deal! Can power it off 12v car adapter, or utilize the 110v plug, leaving either or open along with 2 usb charge ports. Nicely designed, Thanks Goal Zero!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stout, Easy to use, Easy to charge I bought this on sale for the camping event around I think Memorial day. I have used it 3 different times now camping out on the island in Casco Bay in Maine. I was worried about it after the 2nd day because it did not seem to charge the same as it did the 1st. We did use it heavier on this last 4 day event, Charging 2 smart phones, 1 iPad2, 1 lighthouse 250, and we ran 3 of the new Light-a-Life 350's on it for probably 1 hour making and eating dinner each night. It recharged to full the 1st night with my Nomad 20 and Nomad 7 in tandem. The 2nd day it recharged to 100% again, the third day it was better than 80% and the last day I did not bother as we had to pack up. It never dropped below 60% until the last day and we used it to beat the band. Admittedly I do want to step up to the Yeti 400 for something with more power on hand. But that's cause I am too Boy scout I want to bring something out there for 4 days and be able to not have to worry about solar if the weather is not good for solar. But I can't complain this power pack delivered and held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really flexible power source.... On our Airstream we will have solar installed. But having a movable solar panel and power storage is a great asset when your home could be shaded or parked at an inappropriate angle. We also love the fact that the Yeti is a portable inverter. It allows us to charge whatever we need (computers), or, as was fun recently, run my immersion blender at the picnic table to puree the soup. A great tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of tech. I am using it as a power source to my hamradio operations. I have a FT817nd from Yaesu. It is a low power radio (5w output RF). It consumes 12.4V and 2amps from the Yeti 150 on transmitting and 12.4V and 0.4amps on stand-by/listening. It gives about 7 hours of constant operation. The Nomad 13 is used to charge it when I am not using it. I place it at the window next to my radio table. It was the best aquisition I made on the last years. No regrets... just fun. Even with low light, the Nomad 13 panel charge the YETI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't depend on it I purchased the 150 along with the solar panels a few years ago. Kept the battery charged in the garage. Last night we had a power outage, 109-degree day and 99-degree night. Tried to use the 80% charged battery to run a small electric fan and got zero minutes. Zero. From 80% to zero. What a waste of money. I'll never buy a Goal Zero anything again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful Used on a recent car-camping trip. This came in handy after fully charging from the wall prior to our departure. After a day into the trip, a couple of our campers needed their phones charged, so we used it and within about an hour everyone was back to 100% to take more photos and videos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Yeti 150 saved my bacon!!! We a bunch of Goal Zero products but the other night the Yeti 150 really saved my bacon. Due to a bad car accident our power was out for over 5 hours the other night. We have a newborn and to feed her my wife has to pump milk every 2 to 3 hours. When the power went out she was able to plug in to the yet 150 and pump away. Going 5 hours would have been too long and painful for my wife so I am really glad we had this thing on hand. I love it and would recommend it to everyone. You never know when you are going to need a little power boost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YETI 150 - Boulder 90 Combo Bought the Yeti 150 last year and pared it with the Boulder 90 panel. Ran a couple of Light-A-Life lights and had ample lighting for 4 full nights before I had to recharge the Yeti. (Good thing, as the sun was absent for the first 4 days of the trip. Once the sun finally came out, the Boulder 90 charged up the Yeti, Lighthouse Lantern, I-pad & I-phone in 3 hours total time. Loved it so much, went ahead and purchased the Yeti 400 and 2 more Light-A-Life lights. Talked my brother into buying a Yeti 400 and some Light-A-Life lights as well. When we go "off the grid" next month for a week, we are going to chain the Boulder 90's together and create our own solar powered grid with zero carbon footprint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not As Powerful As Advertised I just purchased this unit (and a solar panel) to take along on weekend camping. I like bringing my laptop camping, and wanted to have some spare power to extend how long the laptop would run. The Goal Zero advertizing for this unit says that it will recharge a laptop twice. However, I just just did a test and after fully charging the Yeti 150, this unit was able to recharge my laptop only once, before the Yeti ran out of power. Maybe this would recharge a small/mini laptop or netbook (like a Chromebook) twice, but not my full size 17" Lenovo. My laptop power adapter says that it's 120W, so I guess I'm lucky the Yeti 150, rated for 80W continuous output, works at all with my laptop. (Re-reading the Yeti 150 specs, I see that they specify that it recharges "50W" laptops -- but 50W is a pretty low-powered laptop!) But I still have other small electrical devices this will also help power and recharge, so I think it will still be useful, especially for it's small size. But if you're looking for a power source for a full size laptop, I think you'd really need the Yeti 400 (or the Sherpa 100). But at twice the cost, that's a hard pill to swallow. My other complaint is that the LCD readout screen displaying the unit's current charge is not backlit, So unless you're in bright light, you cannot read the screen. I notice the higher up models have backlit LCD screens. One thing I do appreciate is that the model I was sent, despite the photos shown, has not one but two USB ports. One of those two ports I'm using to plug in a mini led gooseneck light that I have aimed at the otherwise hard-to-read LCD screen, still leaving a USB port available for charging a smartphone.

After they sent us a new battery replacement, I questioned if this little thing could do what they say it could. I purchased the Yeti 150 under the assumption that it would light my string of lighting in my 10'x10' tent for art shows. It says on the specs that it will light them for over 50 hours. We got a whole 4 hours before it was drained. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti 150 Good and Bad.... I purchased this for a camping trip to power the aero bed pump. Unfortunately, we needed more AMPs in the AC adapter and found out when we go to the campsite. We did find it very handy to charge our camera batteries (GoPro, Cannon point and shoot, Samsung waterproof video), iPad, and iPhones throughout the trip. The solar panel worked great to charge the Yeti, so we had enough power throughout our trip. I also tried to use this with my laptop, but again had issues with the AC port not having enough AMPs to charge my laptop. I would recommend this for folks that need to charge camera batteries and charge through USB. It's very small and compact, so it's easy to pack and store. As long as you have light, it seems to charge quickly. If you need to charge a laptop, I would recommend double checking the AMP requriements on your laptop cord against the tech specs of this product before purchasing. I do plan on purchasing additional products from GoalZero because they are durable, reliable, and solar powered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful I bought the yeti 150 a couple months ago, and I love it! It's mainly used to charge smart phones and gopro cameras when we go camping and it performs very well. We get plenty of charges out of one charge of the yeti. One word of advice is to put your smart phones down! Phones take more battery than our gopro cameras, so this can take away if you use your phone too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buyers remorse With all the mods I had to make I should have just built one. The lead acid battery that came with it just isn't good enough with the other options out there. After spending way too much money on the Yeti 150 the direct replacement Lithium battery was way to expensive, so I salvaged 18650 cells from laptop batteries(which is what those direct replacement batteries are made from and built one (if you do this make sure you get some kind of controller for it so it'll balance and the voltage wont drop too low). Also the connectors for the lamp, power, panels are proprietary. I cut those off and replaced them with Hobby Kings xt60 connectors so I could use things other that Goal Zero branded. You can get Ankler panels almost identical to Goal Zero's for a whole lot less money(I did buy the Goal Zero ones, Ankler didn't have theirs out when I Purchased Mine). With the mods I made I can keep my cameras and other portable gadgets charged for all of my off grid treks. With the price I paid it should have at least came with the lithium battery, 18650 batteries are cheap and with the price of lead now worth it!!! If they would have done that it would have been a 5 star review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for traveling and your electronics I bought this at the end of 2014 only because I got a god deal on 4 refurbished Boulder 15's. It can charge pretty quickly with four panels on a hot clear day here in Florida. You really need to have an adequate amount of panels to charge solar power can be frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeding my expectations so far. I bought this to go out on my boat for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) to power a CPAP. I was afraid it would not last both nights... But to my surprise, it does both nights and powers cell phones, tablets etc. and only goes to about 60% by Sunday afternoon. Very happy with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best mix of Portability and functionality We purchased a Yeti 150 and a Solar panel to use while camping with the family last fall. It's now our power-failure backup in the house and the charger for everyone's phones and iPads using free solar power from the sun. In terms of durability, the design and manufacturing are head and shoulders above the competition. Compare a GoalZero product to the Duracell battery or the iSolar equipment and you will see why it's worth it. Everything else looks fragile by comparison. The Yeti 150 is the right mix of power output connectivity and portability. It's light enough for the kids to carry it and has enough power storage to run our gear all nite. Finally the customer service team at GoalZero is located here in the USA. That means you can speak to a real human when you have a question. That's just not possible if you buy something on eBay. We really like our Yeti and it will be with us at the EAA fly-in this summer in Oshkosh. If you see a Mooney with a solar panel on it's wings, stop by and say "hi". We'll show you our new favorite camping gadget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A practical tool for home health practitioners! I bought my Yeti 150 about 6 months ago, and it has quickly become one of my essential tools for work. I work in home health and need to keep my laptop and assessment tools charged throughout the day, and the Yeti has made that much easier to do despite working in a rural setting. I would strongly recommend this for all home health practitioners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Solar Generator The Yeti 150 has been the one product that has at one point probably powered everything I take on a trip. My cell phone, camera, laptop, batteries all have been powered by this versatile solar generator. Whether I am in a tent in remote Russia or on a snow covered beach in Iceland the Yeti 150 has been there and helped power all my camera equipment. There have been many times I will be on a trip with little access to any power source and will have to rely solely on the Yeti 150 to keep my equipment charged. It has really allowed me to continue to shoot images in places that I regularly wouldn't be able to continue to charge gear and other equipment. It is an Goal Zero product that once you have used and had access to power at all times it is hard to ever go back to working without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator and excellent customer service My yeti 150 is awesome! I’m a climatologist and work internationally on a regular basis; let me tell you, this generator is essential to me while working in the field especially during my frequent long-haul camp-outs. It’s extreamly versatile, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this to jump-start the truck rover in subzero environments. The ability to also recharge with a solar panel was a powerful selling point for me, seeing I’m often hundreds of miles from civilization. I also enjoy the ability to have easy access inside of the unit, which allows me to swap batteries if need be. A note for the battery, it’s heavy. To cope with this, I swap out the sealed lead acid battery (SLA with a custom made lithium polymer version; though I wouldn’t recommend this because the electronics inside were designed to charge SLA batteries and not lithium polymer. A special computer chip was retrofitted into my Yeti to charge safely. Lastly, I really enjoy the flexibility of being able to use multiple jacks/ports at once; unlike most other units on the market which don’t or can’t. It also is great for high drain applications. I have used this Yeti with my power-hungry satellite phone from the 1990s, which demands a minimum of 60 watts to operate, while also powering the string of 15 incandescent light bulbs strung around camp. I love my Yeti a lot and will probably purchase the next model up when and if that time comes for its decommission. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but could be much better! I used the goal zero for powering my led equipped caravan and it does the job exellent. But I changed the standard battery for a lifepo4 battery what makes the device much lighter with much more power inside. So I wait for the original lifepo4 version of the goal zero with a charger that charges the lifepo4 battery much quicker than the original agm charger inside. And a lifepo4 makes the device much lighter and more powerful and can charge much faster if fitted with a good lifepo4 charger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. IO bought mine almost a year ago, It came with a bad battery right out of the box. Goal Zero sent me a new battery right away "no charge". I put it in, charged it and put it to work. We have switched much of our lighting to LED in our house. It powered a Lamp in the living room with a very bright LED bulb all evening and only took it down to 60%. I charged it and put it away, I took it out 3 months later to check it like they say too and the battery was no good and would not take a charge. Again Goal Zero sent me a new battery No charge to me, I plugged it in and charged it so far so good the battery is holding a charge. I'm told that you can leave them plugged in they will not over charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For future adventures. I bought this a few weeks ago with the nomad 28 panel. Wanted to try it out for a little while before telling everyone how fabulous it is. That's what it is to, taken it out and about to keep cameras, batteries, cell, tablet, GPS and just about anything else that needs power (within its abilities) to stay out and about. The 28 panel charges this little beauty up in no time. Never got it below 40% even after charging everything on my list and running a cigarette lighter car fan to cool off on a muggy night. You guys have a very satisfied customer in me and I plan on coming back for more, keep up the great job Goal Zero.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti 150 is worth buying I took my Yeti 150 out on a boating/camping trip for a week. While it's too heavy for backpacking it was excellent for carriage by boat. It kept all my GPS and camera batteries charged allowing me to take more photos and video. I used a Nomad 20 solar panel to recharge it and it did just fine but the Yeti 150 was a bit quirky in displaying how much power was replenished as the hours went by. It took one day of sun to go from 20% to 40% and the next day in just a few hours it went from 40% to fully charged. So you may not know exactly how full the battery is or how well the solar panel is working but it definitely works well and gets the job done in recharging my devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long term review Yeti 150 I have the first gen version of the Yeti 150 with the single USB port (gen 2's have the dual USB ports) The Yeti 150 has performed very well for what it was intended for. I have used it for running Light-A-Life, Bose wave radio/CD player, Norelco shaver, phone recharging, recharging Rock Out speakers, charging AA, AAA, 9v batteries, USB fans and a host of small electronics and it has been flawless. The build quality is top notch and not too heavy. Yeti 150 came in handy when Hurricane Joaquin knocked out power here in the Carolinas. Yeti 150 will NOT run a hair dryer or coffee maker. Remember to use the 150 for what it was intended and you'll be quite satisfied. Opt for the more powerful Yeti 400 for charging cordless power tools from Lowe's or Home Depot or running CPAP machines, or the Yeti 1250 for running a high power device such as a microwave oven or hair dryer. The only "gripe" I have is the OEM battery is a little "iffy" Some folks have had the original battery flatline in less than six months. Fortunately, the battery is easy to replace. I would recommend an after market replacement such as the "Mighty Max" 12v 15AH, about $35, or the VMAX "Charge Tank" 12V 15AH, about $50. Now If GZ had a lithium ion replacement, I would be tempted. Overall, this is a fine piece of equipment to have for camping or back up around the house. Keep your unit charged (I recommend a minimum of every two weeks) and it will be good to go when you really need it. I would also recommend a minimum of 30 watts of solar panel to charge it when using sun to keep charge times reasonable. I give this a solid 4 1/2 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti 150 after 6 years on the orginal battery Today i was out in the garage checking to make sure I had everything charged up as we are susposed to get a bit of a wind storm and snow about 4 to 6 inches in the next few days. I have read numerous reviews about the "cheap" batteries that Goal Zero puts in their Yeti 150. I have 2 Yeti 150's one I bought 1/24/2014 and the other I purchased April of 2016. I bought these after buying an Escape 150 about 10 years ago. I have replaced the battery on the escape one 150 about 2 years ago. I also have a Yeti 400 I purchased 4/3/2014. I put a new battery in the Yeti 400 just 3 or 4 months ago. I want to say I am careful not to drain any of my Yetis below 40% and I use them daily to charge up phones and other things around the house. mI make sure to drain down my Yetis to 40 or 60% at least once a month. It says some place on the Goal zero website you need to use your Yeti to keep it working. I don't leave my Yetis plugged in all the time I discharge them, if I remember to, at least once a month. The reason for this review is to remoind people that the Yeti is a quality product and the big plus as I see it is I can replace the battery myself. The ease of battery replacement is one of the biggest selling points as far as I am concerned. I also am a fan of plug and play, which makes the Yeti family user friendly. Just my thoughts from the Big Sky Country, Montana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I was given this as a gift in a package to help power my portable amateur radio. The information on the site did NOT say that the 12 volt output was limited to 10 amps out. The radio I wanted to use draws almost 20 amps on transmit so this power pack will not work for me. It was a waste of money from my standpoint. It might be good for other uses which I haven't tested, but do not recommend it for radio power unless for QRP use. This is not against Goal Zero as a company, just about this particular product. I have other Goal Zero products and like them .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti 150 works great! Used my Yeti 150 camping for the first time last weekend, paired with 4 Boulder 15 panels mounted on a GZ tripod. We charged 3 phones, Rockout 2 speaker and some other miscellaneous things. At one point, the Yeti was down to 20% by the morning, but having 60 watts worth of panels charged it back to full in just a few hours, very impressive. This is my first experience using solar to camp with (we have a popup camper but rarely camp anywhere we can plug in) and I'm a convert. I own a # of GZ products and love them all. Living in NM, solar is no brainer and GZ makes it very easy to get off the grid while camping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor capacity and massive issue with discharge I've only been able to use this in the field twice over the last couple of years before giving up on this. Both times, I barely was able to charge my phone twice in the field before I ran out of power. I have power packs 1/8th the size and weight that give me 10 times more charge capacity. When it's not plugged in after a full charge, the non-mutable alarm incessantly goes off after a week or two letting me know that it needs to be recharged and won't shut off until it gets plugged into the wall. The battery doesn't hold a charge at all for any reasonable length of time (typically it loses 50% of charge after sitting unused for 3 days). When I charge it, the bottom gets very hot, and the case noticeably swells (Very much a safety issue). Super disappointing given the money I spent on this at REI (over $250). I also am very careful to take care of my gear and this unit has never been dropped or exposed to water or other extreme conditions. Not sure how I can safely dispose of this. I'll never buy another Goal Zero product again.
