This review is for the Goal Zero Nomad 27 solar panels Goal0 12201 Nomad 27M Solar Panel.

I bought these solar panels to use on a backwoods trip to keep the Sherpa 120 battery Goal0 11102 Sherpa 120 Battery charged that I used to run a CPAP machine while I sleep. Since this would be running a medical device, I felt it was important to know I could trust the system.

I carefully measured (using a Kill-a-Watt) the power my CPAP was consuming and knew that in good conditions the battery as found in the Sherpa 120 should last nearly 3 nights, so the solar panels wouldn't need to fully charge the system in a single day. I have also measured the CPAP using (using a Watts-Up) when running directly from 12v and it consumes about 30 watts a night (vs 37watts a night on 120v).

In field testing and subsequent follow up this is how I would rate the solar panels. These panels delivered the full 27 watts and worked well, actually charging my system quicker than I had anticipated. When solar charging the Sherpa 120 battery it takes longer than it does to charge from Grid power. To get the most from your solar panels, you'll need to adjust the panels to face the sun 2-3 times in a day. This was especially important for me when we were in a forest and the sun moving through the day changes where you need to be to get them in the sunlight. I was able to top off my system in a full day of Arizona sun using the Nomad 27 solar panels.

The panels fold up nicely which allows storage during transit and backpacking.

I currently own a number of the Goal Zero line. I have two 13.5 Nomad panels, a Nomad 7 and now, a 27 watt. In addition, I have a couple Estrella lights and a couple Light-a-life, a Sherpa 120 and various accesories. In short, the system works well and the watt hours are quite accurate. The system has seen me through various backpack and camping trips. It was great to be able to power up laptops while climbing. The lights were a welcome addition to an anniversary dinner in the wilderness. The Battery lives on my bike to power lights, sound and charge my phone while I ride.

The thing I appreciate most about the system is how compact it is. It is very solid and light (relatively) for the amount of power it offers. People have stood on the panels. The battery was dropped on the street from my bike. (bad securing on my part.) They've been in the rain and the battery had taken a small dunk in a creek and kept on running.

Like another review had noted, the unique connector ports did put me off at first. But the connections all are strong except for the bendable short connectors for the Estrella lights.

I found a great price for the Nomad 27 and jumped on it. I'm now able to charge the Nomad in a few hours. All of the panels fit into a small pannier on the bike.

Overall, a great product on a mostly superb line of products.

These are the same ones the military use in Iraq, except they are not camo. I got two of these nd they fully charge my Sherpa 120 in about 4-5 hours on a sunny day.

I ordered this folding, lightweight solar panel to use to recharge the auxiliary battery in my tiny camper. I bought this panel rather than a comparable one because it was significantly cheaper for the same wattage. HOWEVER I knew that I would need some help with finding compatible wiring for the camper plug because Goal Zero makes their plugs to fit their custom batteries.

I outlined the problem to Customer Service, specifying the Goal Zero model, what I wanted to do with it, etc. etc. Over the next two weeks, I had replies all over the map from Customer Service, starting with , quote, Do you own a Goal Zero product?, end quote. Nobody ever READ anything. One woman even advised me that taking apart the battery would void the warranty when I had never said I was doing ANYTHING to the battery. Furthermore, I do not own a Goal Zero battery. In fact, I had already told Customer Service that I could not access the lead-acid battery, which is buried beneath my camper in the truck bed. I finally resorted to photos of the requisite connections at which time the one dimbulb who burned a little brighter than the rest said that I would need to have custom wiring made. In the meantime, I'd found a compatible connector to bridge the gap elsewhere. I asked if it would work and Goal Zero said Yes.

That took TWO weeks.

I purchased this with the sherpa 120 battery. The cordura is very durable and the kit folds up nicely, if I can remember the fold sequence. Very light. Can strap on back of rucksack to directly recharge any USB item or recharge the sherpa 120 on the move. Can't think of any improvements to this product. Rapidly recharged my sherpa 120 after use.

This and the Yeti 150 are must haves for camping. Both are to large for BOBs, but for the weekend camping trip they really do keep the gadgets charged.
