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.
Sometimes thinking outside the box brings you even farther—like say Minorca in Spain’s Balearic Islands. That’s where the Minorca 42 Islander is built, based on a traditional Mediterranean design.
