Goal Zero makes equipment for camping, emergencies and any other situation where you might need power but are unable to plug into the grid. You know how all those little portable battery rechargers quote you in milliamp-hours? The Yeti registers in Watt-Hours. You can fill it up via regular outlet, or via optional solar panels or charger from your car’s 12v outlet. Then you can recharge mobile gadgets, laptops, even watch TV or keep a mini-fridge running for hours. It’s perfect for family camping, beach outings, or emergency back-up, and today, the Yeti 400 is on sale for just $300.
