Most Liked Positive Review



This unit powered a 50qt ARB fridge, lights, full size laptop, mini laptop, iPad, AT&T hotspot, and 2 iPhones for 3 days. It had 40% power left. Amazing how quiet it is and would definitely recommend. The only downside is the one sheet manual.

Yeti 1250


Pros: great idea , good for power when no electricity , can be charged by solar , quiet , possible gas gen replacement Cons: very heavy, watts meter does not register until over 50 watts , something not disclosed on any literature about the product , we actually thought it was broken until cust service told us


Perfect Addition to My Boat


We live aboard a sailboat. When out, I needed a way to run our 110 V refrigerator when away from shore power. The Yeti 1250 plus solar panels has been the answer. Because of the curved surfaces, I purchased two relatively inexpensive Renogy 100 W flexible solar panels and wired them to the AP input of the Yeti 1250. The system works great, keeps the refrigerator going on extended trips away from the marina. In this application, the Yeti 1250 is functioning as an extra "house-bank" battery/controller. The Yeti 1250 works as advertised. It is a great product!


Cheap NO, Worth it YES


I was reluctant to spend the money on this thing, but have purchased many other Goal Zero products and have been extremely satisfied with every one of them, so I took the plunge. I use the Yeti for power outages which usually don't last long where I live. I am able to light the entire house with LED work lights and also run small appliances without any issues at all. I do not include the refrigerator or freezer because they are just too much of a draw. I have a regular gas generator if it comes to that, but I don't want to fire up the generator every time the lights blink out for an hour or two. The awesome thing about the Yeti is that there is no gas, fumes or noise to worry about, so for a short power outage it's perfect. I also use the Yeti when I go camping in my car. The Yeti performs like a champ and again without gas, fumes or noise, so I'm able to keep it inside the car and don't have to run a generator outside or find a place to plug in. I can charge all of my gadgets, laptop and run small appliances without any trouble. This is much better than running these things off of the car battery and perhaps finding out in the morning that the car won't start. On a short overnight trip, I don't even bother bringing the solar panels because the capacity is enough to just change it when I get home. After doing much research on these kinds of devices, I have discovered that some people are put off by the price and say that you can build something like it for a fraction of the cost. If you're an electrical engineer that might be a great option, but I'm a simple guy and don't have that kind of expertise. Others claim that you can buy some other product that's "just as good" for a fraction of the price. BEWARE and read some of the rest of the reviews for those products. They are not the same quality as the Goal Zero products. I base that statement on my own experience with many Goal Zero products not just the Yeti. Spending a little extra gives me ease of use, quality and reliability that I have come to love. Charge it, use it, enjoy it, and repeat.


excellent products


I bought this in December 2014, just in time in Jan 2015 our area got hit by high wind and my house list power, took out Yeti 1250 from the box and plugged in my fridge and some led lights, the Yeti ran for six hours straight from box, I am glad I bought this product

Great for remote cabin


Bought the 1250 about 18 months ago for power source in remote cabin (off the grid). Permanently installed 4 30 watt Boulder panels. Use for lighting (8 DC from Goalzero), electronics, power tools and small refrigerator. Works great for weekend use. We are extremely pleased.

There is nothing like this on the market!!!


Buying the Yeti 1250 is probably the best emergency investment I have ever made. I live in an area where the power goes out often for a few hours at a time. I have my Yeti plugged in right next to my fridge. As soon as the power goes out I plug it right in and never have to worry. We have never lost any food because of a power outage and it's all thanks to the Yeti 1250. We have also taken it on our longer camping trips. We have 4 boulder 30's solar panels with the tripod. It's always nice to have power when out in the wilderness. We light up the camp with the LED lights, charge our phones at night, and keep our iPod's, iPad's, and laptops all charged so we can listen to music, watch movies, and the kids can play games for part of the trip. This is what we call camping with style.

Peace of mind and happy campers!


We had a choice to make. Solar back-up or a new 3D 80� flat screen TV. We chose the safety and peace of mind setting our home up with the ability to have a refrigerator, frizzed and medical devices running in the event of a small or massive power failure. So we purchased 2 Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Solar Generators, 8 30 amp solar panels, the storage bags, tripods and various cords for the same price of the TV. We also have been using other Goal Zero products for our annual family campouts and these units will add a great number of new activates and comfort to our camping experience. They worked great out of the box, easy to set-up which is very important to assure if I or my wife is not around, with very little instructions the rest of the family can utilize and take advantage of the equipment. We also can also power our HAM equipment if required and as part of a disaster preparedness communication network that is important especially in Southern California. Although we have not had to use it in disaster mode we have the peace of mind we can and it will work. My wife is one of your biggest sales reps whenever anyone asks about the equipment also.

Numerous uses


I had purchased the Yeti 1250 for back up power. We live in a rural setting and have frequent power outages. We also have a gas generator but it is nice to be able to wheel out the Yeti to cover things like lights instead of resorting to the gas generator. With extended outages, we have used the Yeti to supplement things not covered by the gas generator such as an extra refrigerator we have.

Great Emergency Power Source!


I love this new Yeti 1250. It's got tons of charging options and outlet types to charge up just about everything! The only bad thing is that the USB port is not powerful enough to charge my iPad. I wish it was but other than that it's a fantastic product.
