It was on sale so I gave it a shot based on the reviews. Did a test run in the sun in the back yard. This thing really works well. I'm surprised how fast it charges. It does need somewhat direct sun if directly plugged into a phone. Can't wait to try it on a hike after the state releases us from captivity. FREEDOM

Excited to use this summer backpacking!

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My brother in law (Josh Lowel) uses Goal Zero products all the time while filming. I bought one as a present to myself & I’m excited to use it this summer on an extended backpacking trip we have planned all over Souther Utah! I will use it here in about 2 weeks and let you know what I think & how it went!

This is such an egregious name drop...

This panel is quick to set up and charge, and completely intuitive to use. Juice up your phone or any other USB accessory in the backcountry for some added amenities or tunes while you enjoy some solitude.

Tough solar charger

Super durable and scratch resistant panel. Abused and beaten on for almost a month straight and works great. Would highly recommend getting a coupling battery pack as it will charge your phone much quicker than trying to charge another brand of battery pack.

Excited!

Sad to say I have only gotten to use it twice so far, briefly. On a two week trip I had a generic charger box already charged up from home that lasted a week and used the panel to charge the box up again. Left it on my tent while I was out during the day and the box was fully charged when I came back. The other time was just while working during the day to charge a portable speaker. Took a couple hours and the speaker was back to life! Excited to give this thing more extensive use!!

This thing is awesome. Ordered it a couple weeks ago and finally got the chance to use it, and I am more than stoked! We went for a camping trip at Lake Powell, and this thing really did wonders charging my phone so we constantly had music. In the peak hours of sunlight it charged my phone to 90 percent within 2 hours, no joke. Great addition to my camping and backpacking set up.

Great gift for someone who has everythin

Finally got around to using this after getting it for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift. It is sooo cool, and works sooo well! I used it to charge my Goal Zero Lighthouse 400 lantern and it charged it so fast. We also used it to charge a cell phone and that went a little slower. We plugged both items directly into the USB chord on the Panel. When we went on a day hike we left the panel and the lantern on the dashboard of the car facing the sun and the lantern was fully charged when we got back. Prior to this my boyfriend took it on a 3 week long roadtrip/camping trip and he said it worked great, a much better alternative than using the car port charger. This makes for a great gift for a camper who has everything!

Really good.

The product is excellent and charges very fast my devices. I use it with a Petzl R+ flashlight and works very well. Only that 12 volts does not work, I only can use it to charge USB devices.

Great gear!

I grabbed the Nomad 7 for a Denali climb. I used it with a Guide 10 to keep a full frame camera charged as well as and iPhone and an InReach Explorer. Had no problems even with the extreme temperatures, crammed packing, and low light days. Loved it pretty much across the board and will continue with it for smaller excursions now that Denali is checked off the list (:

Good combo, lightweight

Nomad 7 and Guide 10 are the perfect little combo to keep the electronic addiction going in the wild. This combo weighs in at 580g which is acceptable if you want to keep taking pictures all day on your adventure.

Must Have

Whether you spend enough time in the outdoors or just enjoy the luxury of charging pretty much any device you need to, this panel is a great addition to the kit. I personally have a couple different types of Goal Zero batteries to charge with it and charge my camera and phone as well. If you are looking to go above and beyond throw a set of those in as well and you will be poring cocktails in style in the desert, woods, or anywhere you please. http://www.backcountry.com/goal-zero-light-a-life-mini-v http://www.backcountry.com/goal-zero-sherpa-inverter-110v

This solar panel has saved me on more than one occasion, and it will save you too whether you just need to take more pictures, bump some tunes, or call your mom cause you are being chased by sasquatch. If you take anything electronic with you when you camp or backpack then this is something you need to add to your quiver. P.S. Don't forget to tell your mom you love her before entering sasquatch country.

Gotta have a solar panel in your backpack, easy to store and easy to use, i recommend a battery pack to store the energy you collect in the day. GOAL ZERO ROCKS AND IS THE FUTURE OF ENERGY!!

Solar is the future

Great little tool for travel or play. Have only used it a few times and mainly on a battery pack but it seems to work great I also like the idea of possibly buying more in the future to link together. Buy this it is a great product join the solar movement !!

2 questions. First. Is this waterproof? I live in the PNW, the likelihood of it getting rained on as I leave it out in the sunlight is high. Is it feasible/worth it, to pack it for a 2 or 3 day backpacking trip?

Hi Thomas, This answer is straight from Goal Zero " It is very weather-resistant and will not be harmed if exposed to rain or snow." This does not mean it's completely weather proof, however. If it is exposed to a good soaking for an extended period of time it could be damaged. My boyfriend has the Nomad and will bring it on most of our trips, depending on what the need is and if we have the space.

Can this charge an Anker 6400 mAh power bank?

Absolutely. Pretty quickly, as a matter of fact, assuming you have good light.

Most of these panels have issues charging straight to phone. That is the phone comes on when charging (using power) and if the sunlight is intermittent (clouds, etc) you can actually lose power as you try to charge. Most people seem to charge to a USB battery and then use that for the phone (more weight but more reliable). What is the experience with this? Can you successfully charge straight to the phone in a variety of conditions?

I have had the problem you describe above. I have the Goal Zero Guide 10 package and as you say, the problem is resolved by charging the battery pack and then the phone. I have two battery packs that I rotate and pretty much always have a power source for my phone when in the backcountry for extended trips. Charging the phone directly is less successful. Charging anything in less than ideal conditions (direct sunlight) takes exponentially longer it seems.

Yup, you nailed it! It's almost impossible to charge your phone straight from the panel and that's because the iPhone's are very sensitive to the amount of power coming into them. With the constant change in sunlight, clouds, shadows, etc... it makes the phone go haywire and for safety of the product, stop charging. I'd recommend picking up the Flip 10. It's cheap, lightweight, and quick to charge.

i have an old nomad 7 with the rectangle inverter on the back of the panel. im planning on buying another nomad 7 with the newer rounded triangle inverter box. would i be able to chain them together?
