    Off the grid only in the mind.

    The ultra compact and convenient Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Recharging Kit is a rechargeable battery pack and the Nomad 7 folding solar panel for powering up your handheld electronics anywhere the sun shines. The pack also has standard USB and mini USB ports for charging up using your laptop or other electronic. The AA or AAA batteries charge up in two hours via the solar panels or six hours via the USB. It takes about an hour to directly charge up your smartphone, so when you're off the grid geographically you can stay connected. Whether it's to upload jungle-themed selfies or call for search and rescue when you've had enough, power sure is nice to have.

    The super-durable and rugged solar panel withstands use and abuse, wet weather and being stepped on. Not that you would step on it, but you could. Both the battery pack and solar panel are so compact, the pack nearly pocket size and the panel the size of a notebook, for ultra portability.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The battery pack doesn't charge my iPod. Goal Zero doesn't seem to be keeping up with the times. I just went with an Anker to test for my next trip.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    All the powwaahh!! All the tiiiimmee!!!

    Power where you want it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a must have for keeping your light electronics (phone, GoPro etc.) charged in the wilderness. It's very intuitive to use and packs up nicely. My only complaint would be the weight. For me it's worth having the power. The panel has also been well designed with multiple loops around the sides so that it's easy to mount to a pack or tree etc.


      Works great!

      Portable Power, Anywhere you go

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Charge your Phone, Ipod, Speaker, and Camera's so you never miss that moment. These things work amazingly well, and the price is hard to beat...

      Portable Power, Anywhere you go


        Recharger stayed charged my entire trip. Charged my phone and iPod quickly. Recharger a bit heavy for backpacking.

        does what I need

          I bought the Goal Zero (and added accessories over the years) to charge my B&N Nook after talking to their tech support. What I found was that if I set the panel on my kayak deck or tent to charge my Nook, it only did 50% or so over the day. BUT, if I bought two battery packs, I could charge one pack in the am, one in thee afternoon then plug the pack into my Nook when I went to bed. At my 2am pee break, switch battery packs.
          I don't think that I have ever used the batteries for my flashlights or phone even on week-long trips. But I charge my Nook always.
          FYI, I did find that the solar flashlight was great, but not waterproof. I would recommend getting the AA and AAA battery packs and I find that 2 AA packs are necessary but only 1 AAA as most of my gear takes AA.

          Outdoor Power

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This little kit is perfect when you need some power in the great outdoors. I didn't think that I needed this to add to my grip of gear, but I'd definitely jot it down as a necessity now that I have it. There is nothing worse than getting to a beautiful spot and not getting to take all of the pictures that you want because your battery dies. The kit is convenient in size and function.

          Wilderness technology made possible

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          In this day and age it's great to get out into the backcountry away from screens and civilization and try and reconnect, it's also pretty cool and you can be in the middle of nowhere and charge your watch, iPod, bluetooth speaker, etc... The Guide 10 is a great package for anyone looking for power on the go.

          The Nomad 7 will charge the Guide 10 fully in about 2.5 hours or so with AA batteries loaded into it, add a littler more time if you're using AAA. The Guide 10 provides power two ways, you can either charge up your batteries and then put them into your headlamp, lantern, or whatever else you have out there. Or you can leave the batteries in the Guide 10 to charge your Apple products. With AA's loaded you can charge your iPhone5s fully in about 2 hours, you can also charge from the solar panel directly to a USB electronic device. I've found this about doubles the charge time for any device.

          Lightweight and compact construction makes this great for backpacking, river trips, travel, pretty much whatever and wherever.

          Charges what you need...

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Which for me when I'm out camping or backpacking is basically just to charge my phone to take photos or listen to music around the fire. As mentioned before, a gopro would work too, but if you start adding more things, or want to charge something more like a DSLR camera or computer you may want to get the next tier up.

          Sustainable back country power

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          For the past two years I've researched a type of tech that has really held my curiosity, a solar charge that could be deployed in the field. This is what my research lead me too. It was well spoken of on the Backpacker Magazine Get Out More Tour. The charge times are a bit substantial however that's where this technology is at this point in time. If you can wait 5 year then by all means do so, the technology will be phenomenally improved in that time . If you are one who spends a significant duration of time on back country trips this could be a potential life saving investment.

          Sustainable back country power

          Great piece of gear

            Leading trips with kids I need to have a charged phone just in case. Knowing this I have no worries anymore about having a phone that has some power left after 5 days. Being able to charge the battery pack during the day then my phone at night is perfect (it works with a iPhone 4S). I got it as a present last year and after one year of use I can imagine it will be a must-pack whenever I have the space (it's about the size of a day planner when packed) in my pack. I can only imagine in a few years this will be obsolete and an even better version will be out for the same price. No more wasted batteries! Only issue I have is it can be a little confusing the first time you use it.

            Backcountry Power

              I've had my eyes on this kit for some time as a backcountry source for my iPhone/GoPro/camera/beacon and finally got it! The solar panel can either be directly plugged into a device via USB or used to charge the battery pack which then can recharge your devices. The kit is small and packs up nicely and has a convenient zipper pocket to store the battery pack and any cords. Comes with four AA batteries and a AAA adapter but no AAAs. It's also well constructed and durable. An all around great product!

              How can I recharge my simple Nokia phone off the grid with this device?

              As long as you can provide a USB based charging cord compatible with your phone, it will charge.

              Power up in the Backcountry

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Abundant sunshine can provide your body with a boost, so why not your electronics? I have used this product quite often on my excursions abroad and it has never let me down. The solar panel is compact and can be stowed away or lashed to the outside of a pack to allow for charging on the go. The multiple ports for charging are easily accessible and utilize USB technology. Everything from my phone to my Delorme inReach emergency satellite communication device can be charged up in no time. The Guide 10 Plus battery recharger is a photographer's best friend and has kept me snapping away. Can't wait to get my hands on some more of their great products.

              Worked Road Trip Wonders

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              This little set up was great while I was on a 6 week climbing trip in the western US. There was plenty of charge for an iPhone and GoPro for when I wouldn't be driving for a few days. I also have the GoalZero Speaker set which was phenomenal for getting a music fix by the lake. Loops all over the panel make it very easy to strap in any position to outside of a car/tent/backpack and the zipper pocket has plenty of room to keep the recharger and phone in while in use. The recharger is great for keeping electronics alive at night. Durability was great except for the zippers tags which broke off, but just put a twist-tie through for a simple fix. Overall a great product.

              Product Overview

              Great Little Panel!

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              This little solar panel is perfect for multi-day trips into the backcountry if listening to tunes or taking pictures is of importance to you.

              It performed fairly well in the cold, as you can see here.

              We had enough juice to charge several phones and my ipod touch for music and pictures.

              Even with weak sunlight and thin cloud cover this panel was still absorbing the energies of the sun. Definitely a worthy item to bring along! It's most important function was to ensure we had power for my beloved Goal Zero Rock Out Speakers for the duration of the yurt times, but the battery life on the speakers is so good, that we only used the panel to charge phones and my ipod.

              I was glad we had this because the frigid temps definitely impacted battery life on all devices we were using. Having the solar panel on had was great because the cold took such a toll on the battery life of all our phones and ipods.

              Great Little Panel!

              Great review, Lexi!!!

              Need your advise.

              I am planning to carry my Goal Zero in backpack. How fragile is the panels structure? As preventative measure I have ordered pelican 1080 hardback for Nomad 13 solar panel.

              Hey Emin,

              As far as I've used this panel, I've found it to be pretty durable.

              Of course when carrying it in my pack I am very careful about placement and I always ensure I'm putting it on the top of my load.

              Sometimes I even hang the panel off the top of the pack while hiking to gather sunshine. I just secure it with straps or small cord ties. Tie it securely so it won't fall off your pack, that could crack or break the panel.

              I am always mindful of the placement of the panel in my pack. I'm very careful about how or where I set my pack down when resting. Just be mindful and you should not have any problems with durability. : )
