    Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Adventure Kit Solar Chargeris rated4.2222out of5by27.
    Rated3out of5byfromGood when static, not good on the moveI got this to keep a cell phone and iPod charged on a three-week bike trip on the backroads of Idaho. It worked okay but here's the catch, going in and out of shade and sun was not enough to keep the batteries charged even on full sunny days. In order to keep a good charge on the batteries, it required a layover day of no biking and keeping the panel in direct sunlight. If taking a day off every fourth day isn't an option and you'll be going in and out of shade, you might be disappointed with this product. And if you throw in some cloud cover, well, you're just carrying a lot of extra weight. So, in a nutshell, works great when not moving but on the move, not so great.

    Rated1out of5byfromwas disappointedI bought this based on the reviews. I was looking for a solar charger to take to Jamboree last year as electrical outlets would be few. I liked the idea of the battery charger with the plan to use it & have a backup battery in an emergency for my GPS when backpacking. I quickly experienced the lack power. I have a Galaxy S3 phone and the best I could get after 10 hours in the sun was a 25% charge on a dead phone. Goal zero had a tent at Jambo, so I took it over to see if mine was faulty. The rep looked at it and told me it was working. He said the Samsung requires a lot of power. Essentially it could not charge my phone. Thank you REI for taking this back.

    Rated5out of5byfromPleasantly impressedI was surprised at the performance of this piece of equipment. I bought a Brunton Solarport almost 10 years ago and I tried my damnedest to get the stupid thing to work for quite a while with absolutely no success. Thankfully I bought it here and was able to return it. The nomad 7/guide 10 combo actually works. The nomad 7 panels will take a charge even in shade and cloudy days which is nice considering that we don't see much sun in the winter where I live. In full sun the panels seem to charge the guide 10 quicker than via usb. In the shade it may take 6-8 hours but it's better than sitting in the shade looking for an outlet in a tree trunk. I'm extremely happy with this purchase (other than the fact that I had to return the first one due to it having a nasty scratch across one of the panels faces right out of the box), and will recommend it time and time again. Its rare that I'm this pleased with something like this kit.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Power SourceBought this because I spend a lot of time on the road. I just throw the solar panels on the dash and can keep my phone fully charged all the time. Also allows me to charge up my other electronics and battery powered devices. So far I have been happy with this purchase. I will be looking at their other products for possible purchase.

    Rated5out of5byfromI Love This Thing!!!!This solar panel is awesome!!! We use our iPhones as cameras, gps, etc and those apps run the batteries down pretty fast. Just strap this to your pack and charge while you're hiking. Hook it up in camp and charge while you're eating or relaxing. Money well spent!!

    Rated4out of5byfromUseful when sunny but fragileI use this device to keep GPS, headlamp and other devices charged when hiking for several days. The actual use ratio vs time packed is very low but it is very reassuring to know that if your GPS dies or anything with a battery needs a boost it is there. It is great to leave the trail head knowing that you can already have a 4 AA batteries charged. On a recent trip (4 days in north cascades in WA) I forgot the GPS and only had a android phone for pictures and GPS... Well we had rain almost 24/7 and during the limited break from the pouring water there was not enough sun to not only charge the AA batteries or the phone. This works mainly when you are under full sun without shadows. I guess this is why it is called a solar charger, right?! So if you don't forget the limitations of the product it is a great product. Just don't expect a charge wherever / whenever. Do not have it out when bushwhacking. Not only you are likely to be in the shade but the solar side get scratched easily. I will still pack it despite the weight as it is, in my opinion, a safety device.

    Rated4out of5byfromGoal Ten is very good, with caviatI have used this unit twice while backpacking. It works very well. I used it primarily to run my GPS full time while I was mapping a trackless route. Normally, my Triton GPS' AA batteries are only good for about 8 hours in tracking mode. Plugged into the battery pack and the charger, I could run it for ten hours a day. In camp, the panel would recharge to battery pack in a couple of hours. Now the problens. I had to exchange the unit because of problems with the solar panel. The model I first had had a plug-in cable from the battery pack to the panel. The connector in the panel broke during the first trip. I did a very difficult field repair that worked. The replacement has intergral cables that solve that problem. The other problem was that at the end of 4 days on the trail in 90 degree weather most of the attacment loops came loose. The unit was hanging vertically on the back of my pack. It turns out they were glued and not stitched into the seams. When I got the replacement home, I sewed all the loops ends into the seams. Even though this unit is heavy it is great for my needs. I can run and charge batteries for my GPS which uses 2 AAs, my head lamp with uses 3 AAAs, my camera, my MP3 player and my smart phone.
