Here's an update about our #solarsystem. We've been using the #yeti1250 from #GoalZero for almost two weeks with two 100W solar panels to charge it. It's been holding up just fine for our needs, never going below 60%. We've showered, cleaned dishes, used lights, charged our laptops, phones and camera batteries. The waterpump is probably the biggest draw but only when we use it. Our water heater, cooking and fridge are on propane. The unit is easy to get in and out of the car. Yes it weighs 100lbs but it has two big handles, is small and has a built-in dolly. We just move our panels a couple times a day to make sure they get good sun coverage. We also charge the yeti while driving with our panels in the bed of the truck and with the yeti connected to our truck cigar lighter. We've had good sun exposure and the unit is usually charged by noon-2pm. We'll see with clouds and rain. So far it's been an awesome set-up for travel. We'll keep you all posted!
