Think of this as a travel charger on steroids. The Goal Zero Yeti is a lead acid battery that provides up to 80 watts of continuous power. You can charge it up using a wall outlet or available solar panels, and it is ideal for recharging electronics such as cell phones. You could recharge a cell, for instance, 15 times. You can buy much bigger, more powerful versions of the Yeti as well, up to the 3000 model.
