    i used the 265w solar panel on the system, and it fried the system after reading user guide it says 240w max

      Hi Kurtis, thanks for your note.
      Who did you purchase your Yeti 1250 & 265W solar panel from?

      I have spoken with Goal Zero earlier this summer regarding this issue for another client. In response to your concern & experience, I contacted them again today. They attest that their input charge controller, connecting through the Anderson Power Pole terminal, can handle a 280W panel with no problem.

      Since your experience is counter to this, I recommend discussing your situation with them… you may have a faulty unit.
      Despite stating a 240W max in their manual, their MPPT controller specs state up to 48V & 20A, which indicates that it can handle most 60-cell modules, even 300W (I asked about this specifically, and they said ‘yes’).
      The benefits of power-shaving a larger panel are that your system has greater capacity to charge in times of bad weather, earlier in the morning & later in the afternoon, overcome soiling & shading losses, etc.

      Of course, the larger issue is that of battery size. The Group 31 AGM battery inside the Yeti 1250 will fill quickly on a 240W+ solar module, and should ideally be chained out to its maximum of 4 units to absorb & store the extra power produced by the larger module (note that standard group 31 sealed AGM batteries can be chained to the Yeti 1250… you do not need to purchase actual Yeti’s in order to expand capacity. Just be sure to match the battery specs).

      Thanks again for bringing-up this point, and I hope you are able to resolve your problem with Goal Zero. Their equipment rarely has any problems, and they are very responsive with their support.
