|Charging and Powering
THERE ARE 2 WAYS TO CHARGE YOUR GOAL ZERO YETI 3000 LITHIUM:
The Goal Zero Yeti 3000 Lithium can be charged by connecting a compatible solar panel.
The Goal Zero Yeti 3000 Lithium can be recharged from a regular wall outlet in about 25 hours using the included two wall chargers. You can charge your Yeti with solar panels, and a wall charger at the same time.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHARGE YOUR YETI LITHIUM FROM A 12V SOURCE. Doing so may cause damage to the unit, cable, as well as your vehicle.
Q: What type of battery is in the Yeti 3000 Lithium?
A: The Yeti Lithium uses custom designed Lithium Ion. Here are some basic facts about Lithium Ion batteries.
1. Lithium Ion batteries can store and release a lot of energy in a short period of time. The batteries in your Goal Zero Yeti are in a protective enclosure with a sophisticated battery management and protection system controlling its terminals to the outside world.
2. It is critical that your battery does not get wet as moisture and water can get into the battery cells behind the protection circuitry and bypass that protection.
Q: How do I know if my device will work the the Goal Zero Yeti 3000 Lithium
A: First, you'll need to determine the amount of power your device requires. This may require some research on your end, a good internet search or examining the user guide for your device should suffice.
Second, you will need to check the capacity for the individual output ports. For example, the Goal Zero Yeti's AC port is powered by an inverter that allows for 1500W of power. This means if your device is pulling more than 1500W for an extended period of time, the Goal Zero Yeti's inverter will shut off. Another number to watch for is the surge rating of your device as compared to that of the port. The Goal Zero Yeti inverter has an advanced surge management system that will maximize its compatibility with various devices, but there will still be items that will surge at a higher rate, and for longer time, than the Goal Zero Yeti can manage, in which case the port will turn itself off.
Finally, once you know your device is compatible, you'll want to determine how long you'll be able to power your gear from the Goal Zero Yeti. For example, a 200Wh recharger should run a 100W light for 2 hours (200/100=2). If your gear falls within the 3000Wh capacity of the Yeti, you'll want to check the restrictions on each of the output ports.
Q: Can I replace the battery in my Goal Zero Yeti?
A: Yes, the battery inside the Goal Zero is designed to be easy to replace.
Q: How do I know if my Goal Zero Yeti is charged?
A: To check the charge level of your Goal Zero Yeti, refer to the LCD Battery Display. When lit up, you'll see a battery outline with 5 segments, indicating the current charge level. It is OK to use your Goal Zero Yeti even when it's not fully charged.
Q: Why is the light on the AC button blinking?
A: A blinking light on the AC button indicates that at the current load, the AC inverter will be shutting off soon; you should also see RESERVE MODE blinking on the display. Recharge your Goal Zero Yeti as soon as possible to continue powering your device. Once the AC inverter has shut off, the Yeti will attempt to reset itself three times. After three attempts, the AC inverter will remain off until you physically reset it by pushing the AC button or by recharging the battery a small amount.
Q: Charging from Solar?
A: When solar recharging your Goal Zero Yeti Lithium, take note of the voltages of the solar panels and do not exceed 22V. Individual solar panels, or solar panels chained in a series in excess of 22V cannot be used with the Goal Zero Lithium and can cause serious damage to the unit.
