Yeti 500X FAQs

Yeti 500X FAQs

Yeti Lithium batteries are rated for 500 cycles to 80% capacity. This means after 500 full life cycles from 100%-0% you will still have 80% of the original rated capacity. Looking at it another way, the Yeti 500X will last 505 Watt Hours. A Watt Hour is a unit of measurement for power over a period of time (an hour), or in the case of Goal Zero products, a way of measuring capacity. One Watt hour is equal to one Watt of average power flow over an hour. One Watt over four hours would be four Watt Hours of power. As an example, a 100 Watt light bulb on a 400 Watt Hour battery (like the Yeti 400) would last, on paper, 4 hours.

The Yeti 500X is not waterproof. Power stations need to stay dry, so keep them covered up and protected from the dust, rain, and snow.

The Yeti 500X will power a portable fridge for 20 hours.

There are three ways to charge a Yeti 500X:

Recharge from the sun by connecting a compatible solar panel, either the foldable Nomads or mountable Boulder solar panels. The higher the watts of the panel, the faster the charging times.

Plug it into the wall using the included 60W power supply for a full recharge in just 10 hours, or plug in with the Yeti X 120W Power Supply to halve that charge time. You can also use any USB-C power supply to charge the power station.

The Goal Zero Yeti 500X can be charged by plugging into your 12V adapter using the Goal Zero Yeti Lithium 12V Car Charging Cable. NOTE: Do not attempt to charge your Yeti Lithium from a 12V source using a regular charging cable. Doing so may cause damage to the unit.

Keep your Goal Zero Yeti X plugged in when not in use, and don't leave the battery sitting without being charged for extended periods of time. If you will be storing the Goal Zero Yeti without a charger, make sure it's fully charged before you put it away.
