Seems Costco has gotten Goal Zero to make them an exclusive Goal Zero power pack – the Yeti 1000. Lithium battery, 42lbs, hook up to Solar panels or house current, and only $1000. If you check out their pricing, the cheapest cost per watt/hour is their Yeti 400 with the lead acid battery and that’s still over $1/ watt hour.
Now, if only the solar input connection worked!! Know its not the panel of the wires as it works just fine with my Yeti 400 and the new unit is charging happily from the house current.
Know, though, that Goal Zero has pretty decent customer service as I’ve had to use them in the past. Lets hope they are as good with the Costco exclusive. Or back to Costco it goes!
and yes, I know its made in China. . . .
