Using Your Yeti 400 Lithium…
Charging The Yeti From The Sun
The Goal Zero Yeti 400 Lithium can be charged by connecting a compatible solar panel. If you are a standard or light user and use about 30-40% of the power per day we recommend 1 Boulder 50 Solar Panel. If you are a heavy user using all the power in one day, we recommend using 3 Boulder 50 Solar Panels to recharge.

Charging The Yeti From The Wall
The Goal Zero Yeti 400 Lithium can be recharged from a regular wall outlet in about 7 hours (if you were to totally drain the battery, which is never a good idea… keep it topped-up so you always have power available & the batteries stay healthy!).
You can charge your Yeti with solar panels, and a wall charger at the same time.
Charge All Your USB Devices
4 high-speed USB ports (2.4A). Great for your phones, tablets, and wearables.
Power Your 12V Car Accessoried
The 12V best charges all your 12V powered devices. (10A, 120W max)
What Can You Power?
Smartphones, Lights, Camera Equipment, Tablets,12V Appliances, Laptops, CPAP machines, Display Monitors, etc.
How Much Is 400WHrs (Watt-Hours)?
Laptops: 3-5 times
Tablet: 10+ times
Smartphone: 30+ times
GoPro Camera: 70+ times
dSLR Camera: 10+ times
How Fast Will My Devices Charge From the Yeti?
It takes the same amount of time to charge your device from a Goal Zero power pack as it does from the wall.
Some Advice To The Wise On Usage
When charging gear with the Yeti 400 Lithium, take note of the LCD Battery Display. If you plug in devices that have a high power requirement (a large refrigerator), the charge level of the Yeti can drop very quickly and you may not get exactly 400Wh of energy. Also, especially when using the AC power output, the Goal Zero Yeti will be converting the energy from the DC power of the battery to the AC power needed by your device. Although your Goal Zero Yeti has a highly efficient inverter, there is still some energy lost in the conversion and you will not get the full rated capacity of the battery.
Worried About Cold Weather?
Cold temperatures (below freezing) can impact the Yeti’s battery capacity. If you’ll be living off-grid in sub-zero conditions, we recommend keeping your Yeti 400 Lithium in an insulated cooler, connected to a power source (solar panels), and charging your gear. The natural heat generated by the Yeti 400 Lithium contained in an insulated cooler will keep battery capacity at its highest.
Storage & Maintenance
Having your Yeti 400 Lithium connected to a power source, like a solar panel or wall outlet, between adventures or while in storage keeps its battery healthy and topped off. This prolongs battery life and will ensure your Yeti 400 Lithium is charged and ready to go all day, every day.
If you can’t keep the Yeti 400 Lithium plugged into a power source during storage, fully-charge your Yeti 400 Lithium every 10-12 months and store in a cool, dry place. Failure to maintain the Yeti 400 Lithium by following these steps can result in battery damage which will void the product warranty.
