Goal Zero: Power your Next Adventure

Show less...

It is often said that necessity is the mother of invention but in the case of Robert Workman, the founder of Goal Zero, it was his compassion that drove his desire to empower others through his products.  His relentless desire to provide others with the means to sustainable power eventually lead to the creation of Goal Zero and their ethos of Zero Apathy. Zero Boundaries. Zero Regrets.

After an humanitarian trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1997 Workman returned in 1998 to test his solar generator GoBe (now the Goal Zero Yeti 150) and successfully provided light, power, but most importantly, economic empowerment to a village. A year later Goal Zero was launched officially and has since sent aid in relief efforts to Haiti, Japan and many other places affected by disaster or poverty.

While Goal Zero started their product line with solar panels and generators aimed at bringing villages from poverty they have expanded to include offerings that enable anyone to explore in ways not previously possible. You can now use portable solutions like the Torch 250 to provide light or power to devices any time and anywhere.  The Sherpa 50 Solar Kit allows you to charge phones, cameras or laptops in the most remote locations. You are no longer tethered to a power outlet … Goal Zero gives you the power to explore.

Goal Zero, Powering Possibilities, Episode 1

Goal Zero offers portable power solutions that are so good, that if they end up in the wrong hands they can make bad ideas possible. They also empower customers to untether and bring their tech with them wherever adventure takes them.

 Questions & Tips

Q: Once fully charged, how long do your power packs hold a full charge (if unused)?

If unused, power packs are typically capable of holding a full charge for 4-6 months. However, we highly recommend charging the battery every 3-4 months for a healthy lifespan and storing the power pack plugged into the wall or solar panel.

Q: Do I need additional power cables to use my power pack or solar pannel?

No, all cables are included or incorporated for basic operation this include chaining solar panels together. Check out how to chain solar panels video or how to chain power packs.
