Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Late summer is a great time to head for the outdoors…and we love tech that can help. Goal Zero makes a variety of portable batteries…even models that can be used to power your home in emergencies. We’ve checked out the company’s 50 watt solar panel combined with a Yeti 150 battery…that can keep your electronics charged in some cases for days. General Manager Bill Harmon says with so many natural disasters and storms to contend with …it is best to be prepared…
“First recommendation is to make sure you have power at least for a few days. Keep your devices running such as your phone and your laptop and those things. And then consider the next level up which is how are you going to keep your refrigerator running…how are you going to keep lights on in your home in the case of a power outage.”
