I tested the panel in low light conditions: An overcast morning, and it didn't produce any power, whereas the Goal Zero Nomad 7 did produce 5 Volts at 40 mA. This difference is probably due to polycrystalline solar panels vs monocrystalline solar panels, which are known for the low light efficiency. This was a very low light test.Read more ›
The unit is not as "universal" as the Goal Zero system, but it does have a 12 cigarette lighter permanently attached for 12 volt charging and a single USB plug.
I'm updating my review and taking away 2 starts as it no longer functions after being exposed to moisture/rain. I plugged in my panel to charge a lawn tractor battery that powers my gate on a cloudy day. It started to rain, but I was not worried as the charger was out of the direct rain fall and it is "weatherproof". The next day I went out with my volt meter and was not getting any output from the 12 volt plug or any power from the USB plug.
I still think this panel is a good overall deal, but it is not weatherproof.
-Generally speaking, the panels work best when held still. I tried backpacking for an hour with it attached to my pack, and it did not charge my battery at all.
-It needs to be put somewhere where they are no shadows. This includes shadows from people walking by. ANY interruption will stop the charge to your phone. This is important because:
-For most phones, power starts and stops will cause your screen to turn on! This wastes battery. A few brief shadows per minute and you could end up with a net battery loss.
-Lastly, you can't leave most phones with it in the sun. Your battery will overheat and cease to charge.
So there you have it. If you leave it completely undisturbed in the sun and cover your phone, it should work fine. If you're planning on bringing it with you to the beach or something, it's probably not worth it.
The bad: USB plug is in a weird spot and there is not much clearance around it so its kinda tight to plug it in because the zipper is close to the plug. The 12v Car charger is permanently attached to the panel and it is bulky(I just cut it off because I wanted it to pack flat)
Great for: backpackers, busy people who love to use their phone/GPS/Ipod while off the grid.
Over all I like it a lot, and the downsides are very minor it out performs a similar one sold at harbor freight that is heavier and bulkier and only puts out 5 watts.
NOTE: if you are looking for a solar charger for your Iphone5 or newer IPad, Neither this not the GZ Nomad 7 is ticket. Yes, it will charge the phone, as long as the sun NEVER gets blocked. You will need to babysit the phone and restart if it is interrupted at all. a more solid choice is to purchase this with a power pack such as the Goal Zero 10 Plus (a 4 "AA" or "AAA" charger) or the Anker Astro 3 External Battery (10,000 mAh). You could purchase either of these power packs as a stand alone, as they will charge from your PC or the wall, however they also can charge from the Solar Pannel. With this system, you can charge your power pack during the day (even by hanging the solar charger from your pack while hiking, and charge your phone from the power pack at night.
I HIGHLY recommend this.
