Power is an important aspect when shooting a scene away from standard outlets or civilization. What is important to realize is that while batteries the best source for being able to power equipment in remote places, batteries do have their own limitations. For one, they eventually wear down and need to be recharged. So, what do you do when your batteries are nearly spent and your hours away from a place where you can recharge?
A great option that I use all the time is the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator. What makes this type of power very useful is that it is renewable. With solar panels, it can keep your gear powered up all day, with the panels charging to keep your production moving.
The Goal Zero comes in 4 different power choices: Yeti 150, Yeti 400, Yeti 1250, Yeti 1250X2. Wth real-time power input and output, choose the model that works best with your power needs. Each solar generator comes with a minimum of 1 AC output, 2 USB outputs, and a Female 12 VDC port.
It’s a great piece of gear that will definitely come in handy.
