solar again

This morning once again used my Yeti400 to power a water pump for a different area of the garden.

34 minutes of pump; start up 197watts, sustained 147 for 34 minutes.  Took the Yeti from 100% to 60%.  approximately 2 hours to recharge with the 100w solar panel.

Am using a small 10w solar panel to charge my cell phone.  that’s taking more like 4 hours! Could have charged it quicker off the Yeti400 while it was hooked up to the big panel, without really extending the charge time of the Goal Zero unit.
