Expert Answers about Goal Zero

  • Yes, the Goal Zero Maintainer Trickle Charge, # 287-32202, can help maintain a charge on you RVs 2 6-volt batteries. If the batteries are wired in series , then you would place the negative clamp on the negative post of on battery and the positive clamp on the positive post of the other battery. Then you will want to place the solar panel in the best direct sunlight to allow for charging. The Goal Zero charger is only a maintainer charger. This charger will only help maintain a 12-volt...

  • Can AC Power of 2017 Ford F-350 Charge Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator
  • Yes, since your truck has an AC power outlet in it you can use it to recharge the battery of the Goal Zero Yeti 400 Solar Generator # 287-23000. The 400 can power up to 300 watts continuous or 600 peak so it would not be what you need. The 1,250 model part # 287-31901 would easily power the microwave.

  • How Long do the Goal Zero Generators Last
  • Even though the Goal Zero Yeti 400 # 287-23000 will work with CPAP machines, you will need to do some calculating to figure this out. The Yeti 400 will operate for 400Wh (or Watt Hours). To figure out how long this device will run your CPAP machine you need to find out how many Watts your machine uses. For example: if you were to plug in a 100W light into the generator then the light would last for 4 hours. Since most CPAP machines use over 100 Watts you might want to look at a more...

  • Can the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator Power a 8,000 BTU Window A/C Unit
  • The Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator, # 287-22004, will have a 110 volt, 0.7 amps, and 80 watt continuous output. However, after comparing some 8,000 BTU A/C units on line it looks like this model will not be able to run a A/C unit this size. The A/C units I saw in my searches were running at 115 volts at 7.0 amps and needing 740 watts to run. At these numbers the AEN Contractor EX Portable Inverter Generator, # AEBEX, is the only option that we have that would be able to run...

  • What Kind of Battery is in the Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Electric Generator
  • The battery for the Goal Zero Yeti 1250 Solar Generator with Boulder 100 Briefcase Solar Panel - 110 Volts Item # 287-39200 is indeed a lead acid battery. If it were me I would go with Goal Zero Yeti 1400 Lithium Portable Power Station and Boulder 100 Briefcase Solar Panel - 110 Volts Item # 287-46002 since it is a better all around battery than a lead acid. It sounds like you are going to get a lot of work out of a generator so the Yeti 1400 is the way to go. The 1250 would work and...

  • Can Two Separate Solar Panels/Devices Be Used to Charge One 12V Battery?
  • Yes, you can use the Goal Zero Trickle Charger # 287-32202 to supplement your existing solar panel. It would be similar to using multiple solar panels in-line to charge a single battery. If you spend a lot of time off-grid, I recommend investing in the CTEK Dual Universal 12V Battery Charger, # CTEKD250S. This charger uses DC power input to charge, monitor and maintain 12V batteries. It works great at the marina, farm or any off-grid location where 110V AC power is not available. It...

  • Will Goal Zero Car Adapter Cord 287-90811A Work with the Nomad 7 Solar Panel
  • Goal Zero Car Adapter Cord - 12 Volt DC to 6 mm Male - 1' Long Item # 287-90811A is meant to charge up certain Goal Zero products. It will plug into the outlet that came with the Nomad 7 solar panel but I am not certain what you would then do with it. What are you wanting to plug in that requires a 6mm outlet?

  • Goal Zero Yeti 3000 Generator Charging Time
  • The Goal Zero Yeti 3000 Lithium Portable Power Station - 110 Volt # 287-38012 has a charge time of about 25 hours using the AC charging port. Solar charging gives you many more variables and can take anywhere between 5 to 50 hours depending on your solar conditions and the amount of wattage your solar panels collect. My contact at Goal Zero suggests a minimum of 400 watts of solar paneling which would charge the unit in 11-12 hours from empty. We have the Solar Charging Optimization...

  • Can Solar Panel 287-32202 be Used with CTEK DC to DC Battery Charger for Two 12 Volt Batteries
  • If you only used solar panel # 287-32202 with the CTEK battery charger # CTEKD250S it would not be able to charge up two 12 volt batteries. It would keep them from draining when sitting but to charge up the batteries you would want to have the charger connected to a 12 volt circuit from a trailer connector or directly attached to the output of the alternator. The CTEK charger does have a pulse-maintenance stage. It has 5 stages of charging: 1) Desulfation stage is the initial charging...

  • Does Goal Zero Maintainer 10 Trickle Charger Include Port for Cigarette Lighter Plug
  • Yes, the Goal Zero Maintainer 10 Trickle Charger - Solar Powered # 287-32202 referenced in your question includes a 12V car port that can be used in the cigarette lighter plug inside the RV. I have attached an image of the port that is included with this kit. This is a really nice plug-and-play battery protection system that will prevent the natural battery drain in 12V lead acid batteries like what is in your RV. It also includes a built-in charger regulator to avoid over-charging and...

  • What Does it Mean for a Generator to Have an Electric Start?
  • When it comes to a generator such as the Goal Zero Portable Power Station # 287-38012, an electric start means that the generator can be turned on via the push of a button instead of, for example, pulling a cord like you would for a gas generator. The Goal Zero generator that you mentioned is gas-free and gets re-charged from an AC source or solar panel such as # 287-11800. The Goal Zero Yeti has different models depending on the capacity and outputs you want. The Goal Zero Yeti 3000...
