Rechargeable Batteries

The Guide 10 Adventure Kit includes four rechargeable AA batteries. Never waste your money or fill the landfill with Alkaline batteries again. Use them in the battery pack to power your USB devices or take batteries out and power your headlamp or remote control.

Plug in your USB

Plug in any of your small USB powered devices to the battery pack to recharge them anywhere. The USB port of the Guide 10 is powerful enough to handle smartphones, readers and tablets.

Light it Up

A handy and bright built-in LED light is always with you on the top of the battery pack. It can be used to find things in your dark backpack or purse. The light runs for over 150 hours before needing a charge.

Kit includes a Guide 10 battery pack and Nomad 7 solar panel
Charge from Solar

With 7 Watts of charging power this solar panel will charge the battery pack in about 3-4 hours. The mono-crystalline solar panel is the most efficient solar panel on the market. Has a USB input so you can also use just the solar panel to plug your device directly in to recharge.

Small and Compact

When folded up it is about the size of a novel. It can open up and charge from your dashboard or backpack. Really, you can just throw it out wherever you may be.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Nomad7 and Guide10+ solar battery charging kit is a pretty good product that aims high, but fell somewhat short in performance in my use over a period of several weeks. The kit consists of the foldable Nomad7 solar panel unit with an output pack and zipper pouch, and the Guide10+ batteries and recharger. The thing to understand about solar panels is ... they really need direct sun to work well. If it's bright but pretty hazy, if it's partly cloudy, if you can't get a direct straight on view of the sunshine ... all of these factors impact the recharging times. A partly cloudy day and an off angle for the panels can double the amount of time it takes to recharge the batteries. And in my experience, obtaining optimum conditions is challenging. Read on for a discussion of pros and cons I experienced during my product testing.

(Pros and Cons are tagged with "Kit" if the observation is for the whole kit, "N7" if it pertains to just the Nomad 7 solar panels, and "G10+" if the comment pertains to just the Guide 10+ battery pack/recharger.

Pros:

N7 - Cool Design: The 2 solar panels fold like a book, and a wraparound Velcro tab secures the panels closed. The panels are inside the closed case, and the outside contains a zippered mesh pouch that contains the solar converter and port panel, and lets you store the accessory cables, AAA adapter, instructions, and the Guide10+ battery charger. It's a brilliant design that puts everything you need right there in a fairly compact package weighing around 1.5 lbs.

G10+ - Multiple Recharge Options: You can recharge the batteries from solar energy with the N7 or N3.5 panels or from USB (8-10 hours per spec.).

G10+ - Charger Has a Flashlight: Pretty cool, and pretty bright too (100 mW).

I made the mistake of buying the Goal Zero 19006 Guide 10 Adventure Kit with 4 Goal Zero AA Batteries, not this one, which is the Guide 10 PLUS Adventure Kit. The Guide 10 Plus is iPad compatible, whereas, the Guide 10 is not.

I bought this kit mainly for camping. I find myself needing to charge my iPhone and iPad and knew this company made a good product. In April 2011, I went to Overland Expo in Amado, AZ and the Goal 0 reps had a big booth and gave away some small solar powered led flashlights. I was very impressed with their presentation of the products. This kit fits perfect in my bug out/backpacking/camping bag. I weighed the item, as I do with all items that go in my pack, it weighs 1 lbs 6 oz with: the solar panel, all cables, battery pack and batteries. EVERY OUNCE COUNTS when backpacking. So, for me, this was a good option compared to having to pack batteries and then maybe having to worry about scavenging more, if in a survival/bugout/zombie/post-apocalyptic situation, lol.

NOTE!!!!
I can charge my iPhone(4) directly from the Nomad 7 solar panels or with the Guide 10 Plus battery pack. But I can ONLY charge my iPad (1st Gen) with the Guide 10 Plus battery pack, I CANNOT get the iPad to charge when directly plugged into the Nomad 7 solar panels...this was disappointing for me, but I'll make do. Furthermore, I plan on buying 2 additional Guide 10 Plus battery packs with 4x AA batteries and 3 packs of 4x AAA batteries. I plan to use the AAA's in my flashlight, lantern and head lamp, and to use the AA's in the Guide 10 Plus packs to charge my electronics.

Seth,
Thank you for the great feedback, and review! In order to charge devices that require more input to recognize a charge (the iPad for example) we recommend that you use the Guide 10 Plus as a conduit between the panel and the device. The iPad just requires more power than the Nomad 7's USB port will provide, the Guide 10 Plus does provide the required amount of power. So have your Guide 10 Plus plugged into the Nomad 7 and your iPad plugged into the Guide 10 Plus. The Guide 10 Plus will convert the power to a level where the iPad will recognize it and be happy:). We're adventurers too, and we want our friends that use our products to enjoy their outdoor experience!

KT,
Thank you for your interest in the World's most popular Portable Solar Power! The Guide 10 Plus will charge the iPad's battery about 40%. Combine it with the Nomad 7 (included in this kit), and you can get to 100% within a few hours!

Thanks Guys,
Clint Eastman

The Guide 10 plus adventure kit is a nice, compact solution for battery and device charging. It includes the solar panel, the battery pack, a few cables, and a AAA battery insert (so you can charge those). Note that the unit I received was a little different than depicted in the stock Amazon photos (single mesh pocket on reverse of panel rather than on the flap as shown). See my video for more.

This solar charger works great as a way to charge my AA batteries when away from home. Now I can recharge my AA's and even AAA's when on the trail. There are loops you can strap to your backpack while hiking if you need every minute of sun to keep your batteries topped off. To charge AAA's you'll need to buy a small adapter that snaps into the Guide 10 Plus. The required adapter is now packed with all Goal Zero AAA's. There are combo packs available that include the Nomad 7, Guide10Plus, 4-AA's, AAA adapter, 4-AAA's and a Luna light as bonus features.

First I'll discuss the Guide10Plus unit:
The Guide 10 Plus battery holder has a 3 position switch. Off, On and Light.
Off = USB Output disabled
On = USB Output is ON (1.0a max)
Light = LED Light is on, USB output is disabled.
Store in the Off position, charges in any switch position.

The Guide 10 Plus must be in the On position to charge your phone or whatever you have plugged into the USB. The LED light is very handy in camp for finding things in the dark, plugging things and so forth. I wouldn't consider it my primary light but it is a very useful feature, and a rather easy way to make sure your batteries are charged up too.

There is a red/green LED that lights when charging. It blinks slow red when the batteries are 0-50% charged. It blinks slow green from 50-80% charged and fast green blinking from 80-100% charged. When the power Output is enabled, the status LED shows Solid green when power is available, solid orange when running low and solid red when no power is available.

There is a dedicated plug for charging the Guide10 unit from the solar panels. Thus, you can be charging the batteries while they are also in use.
