The dawning of a new year means resolutions, diets, and my favourite, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas where consumer manufacturers gather to display their latest designs, prototypes, and upcoming releases.
Amongst them this year is the Yeti 150 Solar Generator by Goal Zero which gives you plug-and-play electricity for anything from emergencies through to your own camping trips.
Smaller than the previous Yeti 1250 which requires wheels to maneuver around, the Yeti 150 can be charged up to 150 watt-hours of electricity and can be carried around using a smart green handle.
And this little generator can power just about anything;
Which means that it will power devices as far ranging as your laptop and tablet through to pumps and lamps.
The Yeti 150 can be charged from a wall point, but also from the 15W Bolder 15 Solar Panel installed on the device.
“We (Goal Zero) design all our products to provide our customers with a sense of security,” said Joe Atkin, President and CEO of the Utah-based company. “Whether you choose to be away from the grid or it fails our Yeti line of solar generators can help keep the lights on, your phones charged, and your refrigerators working.”
