Goal Zero Yeti 6000X Review

goal zero yeti 6000x power station

The Goal Zero Yeti 6000X is a powerful portable power station that can be used for many different things. Its multiple port options allow it to run a variety of devices, including power tools, refrigerators, electric bikes, and wood-burning grills. Additionally, it can provide power for essential circuits within a home.

Limitations

The Goal Zero Yeti 6000X power station weighs only 106 pounds, making it relatively lightweight for its size. This is about the same weight as Goal Zero’s largest solar generator, the Yeti 1250, which has a battery capacity of 1,250Wh and weighs 104 pounds. That said, the 6000X is still only slightly lighter, and is nearly as powerful, with five times the battery capacity.

The Goal Zero Yeti 6000X power station does have a few drawbacks. First and foremost, it lacks a built-in rechargeable battery. While it’s a much smaller unit than other power stations, it still uses lithium batteries to power a device, making it suitable for smaller off-grid applications. In fact, it can also be connected to the mains for primary and backup power.

Another limitation is that the Yeti 6000X is prone to drained batteries. It is recommended to charge the Yeti 6000X’s battery at least once a month to maximize its capacity. It can be recharged via solar power, AC power, or DC electricity. It also requires maintenance every month.

The Goal Zero Yeti 6000X offers a large battery capacity of 6,000 watt-hours, enabling it to connect to the breaker box of your house. For comparison, an average household uses about 30,000 Wh of electricity each day, so this power station has enough capacity to power a home for over four hours.

Another issue that the Yeti 6000X has is a relatively low solar recharge capacity. Despite its impressive battery capacity, this model can only put in about 600 watts of solar power, which is not enough to run your entire home.

Solar recharge capacity

The Goal Zero Yeti 6000X power station is a lightweight, portable solar energy system. It weighs 106 pounds, which makes it relatively light compared to other power stations of this size.

The solar-powered version can also be recharged using 400-watts of continuous sunlight.

The Goal Zero 6000X power station is lightweight, weighing only 106 pounds. Compared to the Yeti 1250, which was Goal Zero’s largest solar generator with 1,250Wh of battery capacity, the 6000X weighs about the same. However, the battery on the goal zero yeti 6000X power station is about five times larger and more powerful than the Yeti 1250.
