(KUTV) Lisa Janssen joined us in studio to show viewers the Yeti, a hardy, portable power station.

Janssen, a Sr. Public Relations & Product Marketing Manager, showed us how these sleek, safe generators work.

The Yeti has ultra high-capacity batteries that can power anything at the push of a button -- from phones to fridges, laptops to power tools.

The Yeti is similar to a gasoline generator, but without noise, fumes, gasoline, or maintenance.

They are safe to run inside your home, as there are no emissions and no noise. You can recharge the Yeti by plugging into the wall, or by pairing with a solar panel.

You can buy a Yeti for between $200 and $3,000, depending on your personal needs.

The new Yeti Home Integration Kit allows you to power essential circuits from your home (fridge, garage doors, lights in living spaces, etc.) from the Yeti Portable Power Stations.

Yeti was born, raised, and is operated in Utah.

They began as a humanitarian aid project, before selling to customers. Yeti sells in emergency preparedness spaces, outdoor retailers, and professional/DIY spaces.

According to a news release, "We continue to focus on humanitarian efforts. We have sent over $4 million in product to people in Texas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 2012 we donated over $600,000 worth of product to victims of Hurricane Sandy."
