The Yeti 3000 is an incredible power solution and a great alternative to traditional gas-powered generators. When the pump runs dry the sun will still be shining which is why we recommend this solar product for emergency preparedness over its fossil fuel ancestors.
At the push of a button the Yeti 3000 provides 1500W of continuous power and a 3000W surge for running high-power devices. Once you’ve burned through all that electricity the unit’s pre-installed MPPT (maximum power point tracker) will ensure you recharge in record time, up to 40% faster than comparable units.
The unit is on the heavier side (around 70 lbs) so it comes complete with wheels and a telescoping handle to make it easy to move around your home, or to take with you on adventures. Both accessories are easily removed when needed.
Only quality lithium cells are used to manufacture Yeti Lithium generators because they are known for stability. The battery is monitored by a state-of-the-art management system that prevents over-charge, over-current, and short circuiting. A water-tight enclosure seals the battery from the elements and allows for a user-replaceable system.
Two Ways to Charge
Solar: Connect your Yeti with up to 12 (that’s right, 12!) Boulder 100 Solar panels to harness the power of the sun. Six Boulder 100 panels running at 100% capacity is the units maximum input capacity, but on a cloudy day twelve panels might be just the ticket!
- Standard Input Max (6x Boulder 100 Solar Panels at 100%): 9 hours
- Combined Input Max (7x Boulders using the built in MPPT): 6 hours
- Wall Charging (2x 5A): 25 Hours
- 1x Boulder 100: 60-120 Hours
- 2x Boulder 100: 30-60 Hours
AC Outlet: Plug your Yeti 3000 into the wall to recharge between adventures (or emergencies). Fully charging the unit using the included two charging cables takes about 25 hours.
12V?: NO! Sorry to yell, but we really want to drive the point home on this one. Do not try to charge your Lithium Yetis through a 12V connection. At best the unit is damaged and at worst your car is. Either way the warranty is voided. Best not to go there.
