Goal Zero Switch 8 Recharging Kit with Luna LED Lightis rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromGood Buy...I have used this a few times backpacking. I like the solar panel... It is compact and lightweight and is easy to strap on the outside of my pack. I have looked at/compared SO MANY of these types of products. I like this one the best. The flexible light is pretty cool too. I would never carry the light on the trail, but I use it at home as it plugs into any USB wall charger. My complaint is with the GoalZero Battery... it's poor quality. It takes over 3 hours to charge and provides an 80% charge (in 2hrs plus) to my iPhone 5... AT BEST. I have since purchased other rechargeable battery cells - off brands from various sources that work MUCH BETTER. The off brands are smaller, lighter, charge quicker, and give back more of a charge to my devices. I would recommend this, but I'd say skip the battery and just buy the solar panel. Search the web for other batteries.... and the combo is perfect. My purpose for this product is to keep my iPhone charged in the backcountry as it is my camera and GPS.

Rated5out of5byfromNice little kitSo far I really like this solar kit. It charges the lithium 'switch' battery pretty rapidly and used that to charge my cell phone and nano ipod within an hour. It's small and very portable for travel. I take the 'switch' with me sometimes when I've forgotten to charge my phone. I attach my phone, put it in my bag and viola! it's charged when I need it. This would be great for backpacking and camping too.
