Our take on the Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Kit

by Steve Kindig
Goal Zero
Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Kit

Keep the Yeti 1250 charged up and ready to power lights and appliances when the next power outage hits.

Safe, silent power for indoors or outdoors

The Yeti 1250 Kit is Goal Zero's biggest and baddest power solution. Whether you're working or playing off the grid, or just trying to maintain a few basic functions at home during a power outage, the Yeti 1250 has the power and versatility to get the job done. You can power appliances like a refrigerator or freezer, a TV, a computer and more, all without having to deal with the noise and fumes of a gas generator.

The kit includes Goal Zero's Yeti 1250 generator/recharger along with two Boulder 30 solar panels.

Stay ready with the Yeti

You'll want to keep the Yeti 1250 charged up and ready to go at all times because you never know when a storm or other event will knock out your power for a few hours — or days. You can charge the Yeti's massive internal battery a couple of ways. Connect it to the two Boulder 30 solar panels and place them in the sun. Or, you can plug the Yeti 1250 into any wall outlet. Once charged up, the Yeti becomes a silent, dependable power supply with enough outputs to keep a whole family's worth of portable devices powered up.

And while the Yeti 1250 makes a great backup power source for home use, it really comes into its own away from home. If you own an RV or travel trailer, the Yeti can power appliances when other sources aren't available. Or if you're living or working off the grid, the Yeti can provide power for tools as well as letting you enjoy some of the advantages of civilization using clean power from the sun.
