Goal Zero: Guide 10 Plus Solar Kit

Some time ago, I was able to test the Goal Zero Nomad 13. Since this is only due to its size for everyday use, I have looked at the little brother a bit more closely this year. In addition to the Nomad 7 solar panel, the Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Kit also consists of the Guide 10 Plus battery pack and therefore offers an all-round solution for charging a smart phone with solar power.

The Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel

As mentioned, this is the little brother of the 13th Nomad. As in the last Solar panel test, I do not want to go into the theoretical performance, which can be read on the side of the manufacturer, but rather on my practice experience. Since the Nomad 7 in theory is only about half as powerful as the 13, I have not even used it to load a tablet or other current-hungry devices. The Nomad 7 was agreed upon and only the purpose of charging my smartphone (a Samsung Galaxy S6). This purpose has also been fulfilled without grumbling.

A sunny day is enough for more than one load. Since I lack accurate measuring possibilities, I can of course only with approximate experience values ​​around me throw. However, if you only want to load your smartphone, this panel is more than adequate.

In Poor Light

As soon as it is cloudy or the closer to the winter, the performance of all solar panels deteriorates. Nomad 7 is no exception. Nevertheless, I always managed to load my smart phone daily. As a buffer helps of course the included battery.

The Guide 10 Plus Akkupack

With the Guide 10 Plus, Goal Zero not only delivers a simple buffer recharge to its solar charger  from andyoutdoor.com but also a lot more. The functions of the Guide 10 Plus are quite diverse:

Charger for AA batteries

Charger for AAA batteries (adapter incl.)

Emergency led flashlight

USB rechargeable battery

Charge Batteries

Just the possibility to charge conventional batteries in AA or AAA format make this charger interesting for people who use devices with these battery types. Be it a headlamp, the camera or a SteriPEN. With the Guide 10 Plus you do not run the risk of running out of the juice. If the sun goes out, you can still charge your devices with normal batteries from the supermarket. The juice from the headlamp can also be used to charge the mobile phone for an emergency call.

Of course, this advantage of flexibility also has a drawback. Conventional batteries are often not as powerful as lithium-ion batteries and the entire charger plus batteries also weighs more than a conventional power bank.

Emergency Flashlight

The small LED as a flashlight is almost a bit generous.But in the evening it is sufficient to look for something in the tent or backpack. The LED is so economical that it still works even when charging the smartphone is no longer possible.

As A USB Charger

In addition to standard batteries, the Guide 10 Plus charges only devices via USB port. Since this is possible today with almost all digital small appliances, this should not be a major hurdle.

How To Load Guide 10?

In addition to the connection for charging via solar panel, the Guide 10 also has a mini-USB input, with which one can charge the batteries via USB, if times no sun shines or simply the possibility results.

Scope Of Delivery & Details

The Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit from Goal Zero consists of the necessary cables for loading from the following core components:

Nomad 7 solar panel

Guide 10 Plus Charger

4 rechargeable AA batteries

AAA adapter for the Guide 10

12V car adapter

With these accessories you are also able to charge devices, which are actually attached to the cigarette lighter in the car. The AAA adapter makes sense, of course, if you want to use batteries in this format.

Unfortunately, I lack the accessories and comparable competing products to be able to put the effectiveness of this solution into relation. But I never had the problem that I could not load my smartphone. One load per day was always present in summer.

For Whom Is This Kit?

Weightwise, however, it is only after several weeks that you have an advantage over individual replacement batteries or batteries. If you put value on it, then you should consider carefully before, whether one would rather the additional batteries. However, if you want to remain autonomous over a longer period and/or the weight does not matter, then a solar charger is certainly a good alternative. I would then however to more powerful models, such as the Nomad 13 or comparable products. This means that you have the chance to supply your technology with electricity even in cloudy weather.
