    Lighter and smaller than ever, so you can carry power anywhere.

    Those of you who knew the former Goal Zero Sherpa 50 Recharger: behold its half-size, half-weight incarnation for the ultimate in portable power. For those who are new to the Sherpa 50, rejoice this water-bottle sized recharger that powers up via AC wall outlet or the Goal Zero Nomad 13 solar panel (sold separately) and passes that power onto your laptop or other beloved electronics. With multiple output options (USB, 12V, laptop, and sidecar ports), this recharger provides plenty of versatility. And its handy integrated LED flashlight lets you see with your own eyes the beauty of efficient energy working in nature.

    • Charges via AC wall charger (2hrs) or Nomad 13 solar panel (6-12hrs) for convenient options at home or on-the-go
    • Puts out power via USB, 12V, laptop, or through the sidecar port to the Sherpa Inverter (not included) for versatile use with all your toys or equipment
    • Includes an integrated energy-efficient LED flashlight for ease of use and convenience
    • Item #GZR0031

    Sadly unreliable - manufacturing issue !

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used Sherpa 50 on multiple expeditions in Alaska and Himalaya. While, it appeared to be OK at first, it usually starts to give errors and will not get charged by by Wall/car chargers or the Goal Zero solar chargers (I have multiple). This seams to be a manufacturing issue. I have charged it frequently and have taken very good care of it. The first one I tried to return after a while and Backcountry didn't get it back because it passed a certain time-frame and now dealing with Goal Zero directly for warranty. The second brand new one I just got from Backcountry is not working right of the box. Manufacturer will just tell you to remove the fuse and put back in to reset and it will not help. Disappointed since I need to rely on something robust on long expeditions :/

    Solid Piece of Tech

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is an awesome battery pack. Enough to charge my iPad Air and then some... I've paired this with the Nomad 20, and I'm very happy with their relationship.

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've taken the Sherpa 50 with me glamping, up Denali, and other camping trips. I've used it to charge GoPros, walkie-talkies, and my iPhone 5 with the USB port, and have used the inverter to charge my boot heaters and Canon G10, and to power my Mac Book Pro and a Nespresso milk frother (It wouldn't warm the milk due to the high draw of heating elements, but it gave a nice froth).

    Love it!

    To this point couldn't be much happier

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Had mine a week now. I am testing the iPhone 5 on a full charge and my iPhone 5 has charged 150% the charger is staying strong on 80%. Was disappointed with how it did with charging my HP Pavilion. The HP charged up 40% but the charger got so hot that I could barely pick it up. The charger over heated and I was afraid it was fried because it wouldn't function after that for over an hour. But it eventually got itself together and cooled itself down and works like normal, good recover ability. My laptop may to be much for the charger because I do have a high quality/performance HP.

    Power anywhere

      I spend a lot of time living off the grid in my camper or my tent. Whatever the situation, the Sherpa 50 has become an integral part of my system. I can keep all of my bigger camera batteries charged, power my laptop, and fill the air with light and music with this one, easy to use product. Plug it in to a goal zero Nomad 13 solar panel for on the go power to the ends of the earth!


      Power anywhere

      A Must Have

        I've been using Goal Zero products for a few years now and always loved the Sherpa 50. This new lighter, smaller version is awesome. It holds a lot of power for emergencies or just powering lights and recharging electronics.

        A Must Have

        Accessory question. One of the reviewer...

        Accessory question. One of the reviewer videos below describes an accessory that can be purchased separately and attached for a/c plug-in, but it appears that the unit comes with that already attached. Since I already have the Nomad 7 panel and prefer not to purchase a second panel right now, could I leave home with the inverter fully-charged and then use the Nomad 7 to keep it topped off?

        can this be used with the Guide 10 Plus...

        can this be used with the Guide 10 Plus Kit?

        Best Answer

        The Goal Zero Sherpa 50 is designed to be used with a larger solar panel for maximum efficiency (the Nomad 13 is recommended and has a 6-12 hour recharge estimate). The Guide 10 plus kit includes the Nomad 7 solar panel which half the efficiency of the Nomad 13 and therefore would not be the ideal charging unit for the Sherpa 50. Also, the Guide 10 recharging unit is similar to the Sherpa 50, but with less charging capacity and options. If you need the superior charging abilities of the Sherpa 50, I'd recommend getting a larger solar panel such as the Nomad 13 or alternatively continuing to use your Guide 10 Plus Kit for basic, small electronics.
