Bart Miller, senior vice president of sales at Bluffdale-based Goal Zero, shows off the Sherpa 50 portable recharger at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake. The company won an innovation award at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas for its Sherpa recharger.

Goal Zero is showing two new portable power solar products at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market.

Bart Miller, senior vice president of sales at Goal Zero, said the Sherpa 50 "charges the same as plugging (the device) into a wall."

The new Sherpa 50 Portable Recharger and the Yeti 1250 Solar Generator both debuted at the International CES in Las Vegas last week.

The Sherpa 50 was recognized at CES as an Innovation Honoree for Portable Power. This new design is a third of the size of the previous model and still contains a 50-watt hour power capacity.

The device takes approximately five hours of sunlight to charge or two hours when plugged into the wall.

The Yeti 1250 is Goal Zero's highest capacity portable recharger, according to a press release.

The Yeti 1250 charges in the sun in about 20 hours and weighs 103 pounds.

"I think consumers will be eager to see the strides we have made with the new Sherpa 50 and Yeti 1250 as they are both not only some of our most advanced products to date, but they each address a major consumer need, " said Goal Zero president Joe Atkin in a statement.

Goal Zero is headquartered in Bluffdale, Utah, and its products can be purchased at major retailers such as REI and Bass Pro.
