Goal Zero Yeti 500X Portable Power Station
Goal Zero Yeti 500X can be powered with the sun or charged using your mains power or using your car and has a lithium-ion internal battery.
It weighs about 12.9 pounds a little bit lighter than the Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 500, another generator that can be powered using solar and that weighs about 13.32lbs. It has a two (2) year manufacturer warranty.
Goal Zero was formed with the idea of providing energy solutions in developing countries that lack the basic access to light. Goal Zero also designs products that can lift the poorest of the poor while at the same time extremely relevant to the richest of rich.
Goal Zero Yeti 500X like the Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 500 has a lithium-ion battery of 500Wh capacity. The lithium-ion battery is rechargeable with about 500 life-cycles to 80% capacity (Discharge rate: 0.2C, Full charge/discharge, Temp: 25C) with a shelf-life charge of about three (3) to six (6) months.
The following are the output and input power ratings for the Goal Zero Yeti 500X with regards to the USB port power output, solar panel port (6 mm port for the output and 8mm for the input), 12V car port output and 120V AC inverter (sine wave):
• USB port (Output): 5V, up to 2.4A (12W max), regulated
The Goal Zero Yeti 500X comes with a 300-watt AC pure sine wave inverter and has a high-speed charging capability through its 60-watt USB-CPD port capable of charging USB-C laptops, tablets, mirrorless cameras, and phones in a fraction of the time.
As such, the Goal Zero Yeti 500X is good to power your outdoor activities such as hiking, backyard camping, backpacking, etc. For Goal Zero Yeti 500X to become a solar generator so that you can enjoy the unlimited free power from the sun, Goal Zero recommends the following solar pairings as recommended by Goal Zero depending on whether it is being used for light usage, standard usage or heavy usage. The below solar panels are sold separately:
2. Standard usage: Goal Zero recommends the Goal Zero Boulder 50 solar panel that charges in 12-24 hours. The Boulder 50 solar panel is rated at 50 watts with an open circuit voltage of18-20V and the cell-type of the solar panel is monocrystalline.
According to Goal Zero, the above charge times assume standard conditions of 75 degrees and 1000 watts/meter squared solar radiance. The lower end of the range requires frequent repositioning for faster charge times while the high end of the charge assumes the solar panel is in a fixed position resulting in longer charge times.’
