Nomad 7 Solar Panel Transfer energy from the sun to your device. Ultra lightweight, and portable, weather-resistant solar panel enables you to charge handheld USB/12V gear directly from the sun. Use a Goal Zero portable power pack and store power for your gear day or night. The fold-able Nomad 7 Solar Panel Goal Zero is the most compact and lightest of the Nomad series and provides solar energy on camping, longer adventure trips, trekking or multi-day trips, when away from power outlets, for electronic devices such as mobile phones, GPS, camera or music player. With the circumferential attachment loops, the panel can easily be attached to a backpack or other equipment even while hiking! The robust and weatherproof outdoor Nomad 7 is completely outdoor-proof and can be used in a wide range of temperatures. Powering What the Nomad 7 Solar panel can charge The Nomad 7 will directly charge most USB and 12V devices (not tablets). Most handheld USB devices, include: Cell phone, smart phone, GPS, MP3 player. It also can split the incoming solar power between the two ports to charge devices simultaneously. Some devices may not be compatible. The Nomad 7 Solar Panel will not hold a charge as the panel produces power only when exposed to sunlight. To generate the most power, angle the panel toward the sun. This improves your ability to collect power from the sun. Clouds and windows affect collection efficiency. If you would like to store power, combine the Nomad 7 with a Goal Zero recharger. USB and 12V devices like cellphones, GPS and iPods. You can plug in a 12V device and USB device at the same time, however, you will slow down the charge time for both devices. Some phones require very specific and constant power. If so try changing the angle of your panel and re-plugging in your phone. Most charging issues are overcome by incorporating a Goal Zero portable recharger. Lastly Chaining additional solar panels is a great way to charge your device from the sun in

I exclusively used it to charge our GPS, cellphones, digital cameras, and Kindle Paperwhite.
It packs down safely very fast, and deploys effortlessly in any scenario.
A big ziploc bag allowed charging sensitive items literally out in the rain;
While some days i hiked wearing my Nomad across my back, etc.
It took a beating, worked flawlessly, and simply never disappointed.
These panels are a bit more sensitive to directional light, and the solar-strength LED gauge on this model was a game-changer in my understanding of directional placement of a panel to capture optimal placement. E.g., oblique light is good, but the LED readout gives clear indication for optimal sunlight.
As a pilot -- long before the days of GPS -- I'm accustomed to direction-finding instruments that provide a 'bearing' to get a general direction of where you want to end up. Sometimes you have to guess and trust your eyes. The LED strength-indicator on the Nomad 7+ takes the guesswork out of optimal placement to capture the maximum charging potential. Within a few degrees of movement, you can easily establish the best placement to the sun. I know some will say "How hard can it be?! It's sunlight, and it's a solar panel -- it should be able to collect solar energy at whatever angle, as long as it is in direct sunlight".
To that, I say 'Bah !!'; Without getting into the physics, light behaves as both particle and wave. We don't yet -- as far as I'm aware -- have a theory that explains why. However, directional sunlight -- particularly for a solar panel -- is critical.
As an admittedly crude but scientific-method test, on a sunny day, using the directional LEDs of the 7+, I charged 3 identical 2500 mA/h USB batteries that were equally depleted (e.g., 0% charge). Each battery had a digital charge-indicator. I used a 'control' of a 5v / 2.1A electric charging adaptor. I placed the 2 Nomad 7+ panels in different orientations; one with a 4-LED indicator, the other with a 1-LED indicator. Starting all charging within 30s of one another, the Nomad 7+ with the 4-LED charge-strength fully charged the battery in 2.1 hours. The 5v/2.1A USB charger yielded a full charge in 2.7 hours. The 'single-LED' Nomad 7+ yielded only a 20% charge in 4 hours.
So then, yes, direction to the sunlight particles (or waves, if you prefer) is important, and the directional strength indicator of the Nomad 7+ provides a much-needed capability to get the max effect out of a solar panel -- particularly one of this size. I have put 2 Nomad 7+ panels in my 'go bag'. Until someone else comes up with a better mousetrap, I'm convinced.
Also the first one I got was completely non functional & had a hole in the pouch but Amazon set a new one without hesitation. I've always thought that good customer service is an indication of a quality product, and the service was excellent.
easy to set up, As soon as I help the solar panel in the sun with the stick like plugged into it the light came on.
I charged the battery pack about 3 hours in the sun and the LED light came on while plugged into the batteries.
I am looking forward to seeing how well this performs in the winter light but I am very delighted so far with the
ease of use and the performance.
