    6500EX Extinct?

    Well, have to admit I had the same question bottom line: what did I do in June? Bought for a power back up for outages, luckily not had to use it yet. Had plans of building around it. Now I wish I’d saved my money, or perhaps bought an ecoflow or competitor to it. I really feel I wasted money...

    Step down solar panel voltage

    I know it can only take 24v max. My question was can the ~38v panels be stepped down to use with the Yeti.

    Step down solar panel voltage

    I didn’t find an exact matching post, sorry if this is a duplicate. Really a newb on electrical and solar components. I have a Goal Zero Yeti 1250 lead acid that can only accept 200w, 24v max. From an old DIY from someone else, I have 2 Suniva 260w, 38.1 Voc 8-9 amp panel. How can I step down...

    150watt 52v solar panel with a BLUETTI EB3A Portable Power Station

    I have a similar question - I have a pair of panels, Suniva 260w, Voc=38.1v., 9.08 amps (Isc) 8.6a Imp. I’d like to use one with a 10-year old Goal Zero Yeti 1250, max input voltage is 24v, max input 200w. Is there a product that could step this voltage down so I can use it?

    EG4 6500ex-48 to 30amp or 50 amp transfer switch?

    Thanks for the help! When I moved in, I had a sub panel installed on a 100 amp breaker for my garage wood shop, currently 2 double pole for 2 240v receptacles, 3 20amp for outlets on 3 walls. Pic attached. I’m only just understanding home electrical, and it’s always scared me 😂. But I’ll...

    EG4 6500ex-48 to 30amp or 50 amp transfer switch?

    I’m new so my logic is likely not complete or sound, advice welcomed. I purchased the EG4 6500EX-48 and 1 EG4 LL battery, for now. Staged goals are based having a portable dual fuel generator w/ propane (1000 gal tank) and hook up Power outage back up for food refrigeration (Several), some...

    Goal Zero Yeti 1250 – Great platform for drop-in LiFePO4 upgrade

    Thanks a bunch! I just purchased and fumbled through an EG4 inverter and 48v battery for emergency back up, so the cost will be in line after I catch back up. Hope I can call on you a couple months down the road.

    Goal Zero Yeti 1250 – Great platform for drop-in LiFePO4 upgrade

    This battery was on Will’s site, and should fit. https://powerurus.com/products/powerurus-12v-100ah-lifepo4-deep-cycle-rechargeable-battery?aff=2

    Goal Zero Yeti 1250 – Great platform for drop-in LiFePO4 upgrade

    I may still try the swap, but my gears just grind trying to follow the work, and I’ve never been one to mess with electronics or electrical equipment. I know my breaker box, and an electrician’s number. I have the 1250 - which I agree is a legend. I bought 2 systems that year, the GZ and a small...

    Goal Zero Yeti 1250 – Great platform for drop-in LiFePO4 upgrade

    Knowing this is an old post, here goes… the goal zero site, in Q/A’s at least, say you cannot from-in replace the AGM with lithium. I have a 1250 we bought 10 years ago when I couldn’t wrap my head around any of this as a DIY. It has served us well, although I have replaced the AGM, and added a...
