Great piece of gear

Leading trips with kids I need to have a charged phone just in case. Knowing this I have no worries anymore about having a phone that has some power left after 5 days. Being able to charge the battery pack during the day then my phone at night is perfect (it works with a iPhone 4S). I got it as a present last year and after one year of use I can imagine it will be a must-pack whenever I have the space (it's about the size of a day planner when packed) in my pack. I can only imagine in a few years this will be obsolete and an even better version will be out for the same price. No more wasted batteries! Only issue I have is it can be a little confusing the first time you use it.

Watch Out for Theft of these Products

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought the solar panels, and the Torch 250 and both were stolen real fast (only 1 use), when camping in what I thought was a remote area. People now look for all of these Solar Charged products when people are out camping or outdoors, so be very careful where you put them.

Backcountry Power

I've had my eyes on this kit for some time as a backcountry source for my iPhone/GoPro/camera/beacon and finally got it! The solar panel can either be directly plugged into a device via USB or used to charge the battery pack which then can recharge your devices. The kit is small and packs up nicely and has a convenient zipper pocket to store the battery pack and any cords. Comes with four AA batteries and a AAA adapter but no AAAs. It's also well constructed and durable. An all around great product!

Power up in the Backcountry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Abundant sunshine can provide your body with a boost, so why not your electronics? I have used this product quite often on my excursions abroad and it has never let me down. The solar panel is compact and can be stowed away or lashed to the outside of a pack to allow for charging on the go. The multiple ports for charging are easily accessible and utilize USB technology. Everything from my phone to my Delorme inReach emergency satellite communication device can be charged up in no time. The Guide 10 Plus battery recharger is a photographer's best friend and has kept me snapping away. Can't wait to get my hands on some more of their great products.

Worked Road Trip Wonders

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This little set up was great while I was on a 6 week climbing trip in the western US. There was plenty of charge for an iPhone and GoPro for when I wouldn't be driving for a few days. I also have the GoalZero Speaker set which was phenomenal for getting a music fix by the lake. Loops all over the panel make it very easy to strap in any position to outside of a car/tent/backpack and the zipper pocket has plenty of room to keep the recharger and phone in while in use. The recharger is great for keeping electronics alive at night. Durability was great except for the zippers tags which broke off, but just put a twist-tie through for a simple fix. Overall a great product.

Great Little Panel!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This little solar panel is perfect for multi-day trips into the backcountry if listening to tunes or taking pictures is of importance to you.

It performed fairly well in the cold, as you can see here.
We had enough juice to charge several phones and my ipod touch for music and pictures.

Even with weak sunlight and thin cloud cover this panel was still absorbing the energies of the sun. Definitely a worthy item to bring along! It's most important function was to ensure we had power for my beloved Goal Zero Rock Out Speakers for the duration of the yurt times, but the battery life on the speakers is so good, that we only used the panel to charge phones and my ipod.

I was glad we had this because the frigid temps definitely impacted battery life on all devices we were using. Having the solar panel on had was great because the cold took such a toll on the battery life of all our phones and ipods.

Great Little Panel!

Great review, Lexi!!!
Need your advise.
I am planning to carry my Goal Zero in backpack. How fragile is the panels structure? As preventative measure I have ordered pelican 1080 hardback for Nomad 13 solar panel.

Responded on

Hey Emin,
As far as I've used this panel, I've found it to be pretty durable.
Of course when carrying it in my pack I am very careful about placement and I always ensure I'm putting it on the top of my load.

Sometimes I even hang the panel off the top of the pack while hiking to gather sunshine. I just secure it with straps or small cord ties. Tie it securely so it won't fall off your pack, that could crack or break the panel.

I am always mindful of the placement of the panel in my pack. I'm very careful about how or where I set my pack down when resting. Just be mindful and you should not have any problems with durability. : )

Awesome Product!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this before a climbing trip to the desert and have only used it for one weekend, but this will definitely be an essential piece of gear on many trips to come. It worked great for recharging phones and speakers to keep the photos and tunes coming for the whole trip.

Does this come with the AA/AAA re-chargeable...

Does this come with the AA/AAA re-chargeable batteries? Or do you need to buy those separately?

Best Answer Responded on

It looks like it comes with 4 AAs:

It does come with 4 AA and an adapter for AAA but if you need AAA you have to buy them seperately

This is the first thing I pack!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I solo canoe camp frequently throughout the summer, and finally last year after a weekend without enough battery power to even make an emergency cell phone call, I bought the Goal Zero Guide 10 recharging kit and the Nomad 7 Solar Panel. I will never leave home without them now! They're light and work great. The battery is required to charge an iPhone 4, as other reviewers have noted. I leave home with everything fully charged. Then during the trip, I strap the solar panel anywhere in the sun - the canoe seat, a branch, a rock, the dog's backpack, whatever. It's awesome.

Power where you need it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This charger is pretty awesome. It gets the job done. It will charge your phone or other small electronics. Having the battery charger is nice for extended trips. You can recharge batteries to use in headlamps or a GPS unit. Having the batter charger double as a re charger is nice for recharging electronics when there is not enough sunlight. The lashing loops are great for lashing it to your pack so you can charge on the go
The biggest thing problem you will run into is positioning the panels to get maximum power. But after a little practice you will get used to it.
Over all this is a good charger for on the trail. If you have small electronics you need to keep charged this is the charger for you.
