Answer: 
The Yeti 400 is rated at 400 Watt Hour. Basically 400 watts for 1 hour, 200 watts for 2 hours, 100 watts for 4 hours, or 50 watts for 8 hours. You get the idea.
You want to run 20 lamps at 10 watts (20 X 10= 200). The Yeti 400 will run 200 watts for 2 hours, depending on battery condition.. You can add a second 33 amp hour battery via the Anderson connector to double the run time.
You should look into Read More

Answer: 
The Yeti 400 will run one 20 watt LED light for 20 hours before it would need recharged. The 400 in the name Yeti 400 means 400 watt hours. The most lights you could run for 8 hours would be five 10 watt LED's.

Answer: 
Running my pellet stove during power outages was the exact reason I purchased a Goal Zero unit. I went for the larger Yeti 1250 instead of the Yeti 400 because of the 100 amp hour (1250 watt hour) vs 33 amp hour (400 watt hour) battery in this unit, but either should work. After the stove runs through the ignition cycle, it uses only about 75-79 watts to keep the fan and auger running. In a test run, I Read More
Running my pellet stove during power outages was the exact reason I purchased a Goal Zero unit. I went for the larger Yeti 1250 instead of the Yeti 400 because of the 100 amp hour (1250 watt hour) vs 33 amp hour (400 watt hour) battery in this unit, but either should work. After the stove runs through the ignition cycle, it uses only about 75-79 watts to keep the fan and auger running. In a test run, I was able to power the pellet stove for 16 continuous hours versus the 5 hours you would probably get from the Yeti 400. So it really depends how long your power outages are. Plus, to extend the runtime, I use a third-party 150 watt solar panel with an MC4 to Anderson Power Pole cable (available from GZ) to charge the unit while I'm using it. Goal Zero's products are more expensive but I find them to be well built. I've had the Yeti 1250 for 2 years with no problems. Good luck! Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Scridge,
You need to determine the wattage requirements of your stove.
This information can be found on the stoves data plate along with the model and serial numbers.
300 watts is not a lot of power, considering a standard conventional light bulb requires 100 watts.
To run your stove properly you will probably need 1500 watt generator.

Answer: 
The Yeti 400 has a maximum charger input of 120 watts. So you should not connect over a 120 watts of solar panel. The charge input will not increase the maximum output. But will increase the operating time If using over 120 watts or charge the unit if using less than 120 watts.

Answer: 
Hi yrwol,
This is basically a battery operated generator. It can be recharged with the optional solar panel, but adding the solar panel will not increase its output.
You can increase the run time by ganging two of the generators together, however this will not increase the output.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective Product I heard about Goal Zero products being defective and mine was too. Tripped the inverter on a 50 watt toothbrush. GZ customer service wanted me to uncase unit and fix it. Ended up returning to HD for full refund. No more Goal Zero made in China in my camper! August 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Would recommend if it was more affortable I think the price is outrageous for what you get in return, which is a underpower solar generator. Why is it so difficult for it to produce 500 watts. Then I won't complain. October 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good little solar generator Although I would like to see a little more power to this generator for the buck . over all it is a good, not great solar generator . It would appear that Goal Zero put a lot of thought into the unit while designing it . I purchased this unit just in case of a power outage although it could be used for camping activities as well . suggestion, purchase a couple of power stations as well and keep them charged with the Goal Zero solar generator .
