Goal Zero, a key player in the mobile and home power storage space, this week introduced a number of new products at the annual CES trade show. Included in the announcements are additions to existing lines as well as unique, first-of-its-kind technology.
First up is the Yeti Link which include a “proprietary technology” that allows users to chain different battery chemistry (ex: lead acid and lithium) together. The Yeti Link is an add-on module that lets those who own a Yeti Lithium 1000 Power Station (or larger) chain batteries together.
The Link plugs directly into the power station’s expansion port, providing a level functionality that previously wasn’t offered at the consumer level. Pricing will be $400 upon availability in May.
The Yeti Tank combines the reliability, durability and convenience with the storage capacity found in home backup power. Built using the more cost-effective lead-acid, Yeti Tank integrates with existing Yeti Power Stations to charge via solar panels or a wall plug, delivering long-lasting, expandable backup energy storage for any home.
The Flip Power Banks get a refresh for 2019 with increased battery capacities. They maintain the same sleek and flashy design Goal Zero also showed off its updated line of Flip Power Banks at CES 2019 as well. The new versions retain the sleek design and maintain the light weight and durable build.
The Flip 12 offers 12 watt-hours (3350 mAh) of capacity; the Flip 24 packs 24Wh (6700mAh); the Flip 36 houses 36 Wh (10,050 mAh). The battery packs ship in May and will cost $25, $35, and $45, respectively.
The Nomad 5 joins the Goal Zero line of portable solar panels, bringing about a small but powerful energy source. With five watts (5W) of charging power, it has a built-in kickstand and USB port, and provides pass-through charging.
The Nomad 5 is an ideal companion to the Flip 12, Flip 24, or the Guide 10 Plus. The Nomad 5 will run $60 when it goes on sale in May.
