Next time you’re on the hook and you feel like reducing the load on your generator, bring along the Goal Zero Yeti solar generator. The 29-pound Yeti 400 ($459.99, shown) provides 400 watt-hours of power when fully charged (that’s enough to recharge a smart phone 30 times, shine an LED light for 100 hours, or run a television for three hours straight). The 400’s younger brother, the 150, weighs in at only 12 pounds and provides about half as much output. While the solar panels (starting at $199.99) are sold separately, the units can also be charged by a 12-volt outlet or basic wall outlet.
