$200 off Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium Portable Power Station down to $799.99

Costco Typically has these for $999. This is the only size they carry, other retailers like Amazon carry larger sizes, but without this discount. $10 shipping. Carried in stores as well but YMMV.

Meh even at this point. GZ stuff is overpriced crap. There are way better products on the market, like the Inergy Kodiak. More expensive, but recharges way faster via more methods and can handle more solar panel input.

Not really. After the early hype sponsored by Inergy the users found that its battery develops memory effect really quickly if you're not careful about it, it has very inefficient inverter, etc. With GZ from Costco you have unlimited returns (read free battery replacement). I do recommend to get MPPT adapter for GZ (~$80 on sale) to make it even more efficient.

Better price than REI even after REI's 25%-off sale that starts this Friday. Also,when purchased with Costco card the warranty is extended to 2 years. It does fall under Costco's 100% satisfaction guarantee (which I confirmed via Costco's online chat feature).

It's not chain-able but Goal Zero (GZ) did release an add-on module feature recently; a $400 module-type connection that allows the connection of Lithium or AGM batteries. A 100ah lithium costs about $1k and a comparable AGM from Sams Club costs about $200 although longevity and practical usage for each type of battery chemistry does vary which you need to research. I'm sure by this time next your you'll be able to buy the module with a least a 20% discount from the popular outdoor retailers.

It comes with a 1500w/3000w-surge inverter safe for all electronics. There are plenty of videos online showing it's ability to run 1500w appliances (e.g. microwaves).

The negatives include long recharge times from empty (18hrs) unless the add-on quick-charger is purchased for $150. IIRC, the quick-charge can be completed in 4hrs. If using solar there's an addtional charge for another add-on module for $99. Again, these can be bought at a discount during common sales held by outdoor retailers.

That MPPT add-on module that I already mentioned helps not only for solar charging but for wall charging too.

I've been happy with my Kodiak, but then rarely let it get below 40% or so, and usually have it charging while I'm driving, but my 12v port in the back quit working, so now I just take it out and charge it on the included, slow charger at night. For the capacity of this GZ, the price isn't bad, but the recharge times and options are less than optimal. I also don't like to take anything back to Costco, unless it completely breaks within 2 years or so.
