    Item # 843725

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 4.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Goal Zero Switch 8 Portable Recharger is rated 4.5455 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! The Switch 8 Portable Recharger recharges my iPhone 5 when I'm running low on power. I've used it in the wild, on transit, and when I'm in a car but don't have a car charger. I love the integration with photovoltaic panels, but generally just plug it into the wall or my computer via USB. It's so flexible! I liked this so much, I bought two for my earthquake kit. The small blue lights that indicate remaining charge are also great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goal Zero has another great product After receiving this as birthday present, I have put it through it's paces. The device has recharged my Charge Smartphone fully and has taken my Kindle HD 8.9 to 50% charge for 3% so I am pleased with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly as promised Use it for overnight bicycling touring. Extends the amount of time I can keep track of my times, without finding a place to charge various small electronics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switch 8 a handy stick Spend time away from the urban environment and conventional power sources. This is my answer to be able to access power and contiue to use computer stored computer resources and file while working in the field. Looking to purchase a second one at the upcoming members sale. Purchased a like set up for nephew who is in service for use when he is deployed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lowered Expectations This may be a great product under the right circumstances; but it is not what I expected - though not the company's fault. Just want to provide some clarification and avoid possible confusion. The way the current REI description is written it might seem that the unit as sold allows it to be charged directly from a wall outlet. This is not true. It can only be charged using a USB connector. The unit itself is not supplied with a connector that allows charging from a wall outlet. You must provide your own. One of the earlier reviews makes it also sound like it can be easily charged directly. (I have emailed REI about this problem with their description). Secondly, I've plugged this into the USB outlet on my computer keyboard (using a Mac Pro) and I get error messages that the Switch 8 is drawing too much power and that the computer needs to disconnect some of its USB functionalities. So, be sure to test fully before relying on it too much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power for its size I had the guide 10 which is much larger and heavier but this has more power and is way more compact, its a no brainer as i never swapped out the batteries to charge multiple sets in my guide 10
