Goal Zero’s Yeti 1000 is one of the best portable power stations you can buy and today you can score a pretty rare deal on one. The normally $1,100, the battery is down to just $825 right now on REI’s website; plus shipping is free if you pick it up at your nearest brick-and-mortar REI store.
In general, a portable power station is a great gadget for anybody working in a remote location, but it could also make a great back-up generator for homes, just in case the power goes out. The Yeti 1000, specifically, is optimized for weekend camp trips. It’s fairly small and rugged so you can throw it in the back of your car, and it has enough capacity to fully charge your gadgets (laptop, smartphones, speakers) many times over. It’s a little beast.
