I have a new Yeti 700 is not holding a full charge after unplugging from the wall. After 48hrs it drops down to 71% with no devices plugged into the unit. I have a 3000X and 1500X as well and it’s been holding a full charge after two weeks with no devices connected. Do I have a defect 700 power station?

    That seems super off! Is the AC port on after you unplug? If all ports are off and it is discharging that much you might need to swap. After a month unplugged with no ports on I would expect the Yeti to be around 94%. That is in room temp.

    Hello again, I have returned the 700 and did an exchange for another 700. The 700 power station was doing the same not holding a 100% full charge after 72 hrs it was 74%. I think Goal Zero needs to re-evaluate this unit. For now I will need to wait until after all the issues are fixed.

    Hi @JCorona,

    I suggest cycling the battery 5-7 times. This could be a calibration issue between the display and the battery. This will ensure the display and battery are calibrated.
