I went on a camping weekend with some friends and my new Android. At 10 AM we left the vehicles parked at the end of a road and hiked 12Kms into the woods. At about 2 PM I heard a beep from my phone and it was telling me my battery was very low. I asked about and no one in the party had a way of recharging their phone. They told me they shut off their phones till a pre arranged hour and would contact their family then.
One suggested that I walk back to the cars and recharge my phone off my car. So I trudged the 12Kms back to the car and recharged the phone, cursing all the while, because I was missing out on the afternoon fishing. All the way back to the campsite I mumbled to myself that that would be the last time that would happen to me!
The next week I went on line and researched all kinds of systems that I could use backpacking. I asked a few of my friends and one of them recommended GZ Guide 10 Plus Adventure Kit.
I rushed down to the Paddle Shack and purchased the kit. After two weeks of testing and experimenting I was very confident and happy with my purchase.
The morning of the next camp weekend, I switched on everything on my phone, even the bluetooth. At 2 PM my phone was completly dead. One of the guys laughed and said that it looks like another Marathon walk to charge my phone. You should have seen their faces when I pulled out the GZ and they watched the battery charging light flash on my phone and 2 1/2 hrs later it was fully charged. At 10pm my phone beeped again signaling a low battery. They all started to laugh saying, "Does it work by moolight too?". I then took out the GZ Guide 10 Battery pack, plugged my phone in and "Oh! Man!" was all I could hear when the charging light came on.
The next morning, I recharged the bateries in the GZ Guide 10, topped up my phone's charge, and swithed out the batteries in my backup GPS (2AA) and my flashlight (2AA)and recharged them before I did my PM recharge on my phone.
By the end of the weekend all of my campmates were saying how they had to get a GZ of their own.
That was last May 24 Weekend (4 day camp) and I am still using the kit even on winter camps. I am never without power for all my electronic devices including video cameras. I even bought another GZ Guide 10 Battery Pack to allow me even more power for more devices.
I am one very happy camper!

I live in Arizona and I bought the lantern package and also purchased the Goal 10. I have tried numerous times to get a full charge on the lantern from the Nomad 7 and have NEVER succeeded. All day in the sun for less than an hour of light. I don't feel it was advertised properly and the instructions that come with are very sketchy. I had to call multiple times for help. They also took the money out a MONTH before they sent it out because of a back-up. I don't feel that's good business. I spent a lot of money for a product that doesn't work like they said so I won't be buying anything else!

Great for charging mobile phone

By Donutboy

from Austin, TX

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit:

As a leader, I used this at Boy Scout summer camp to keep my iPhone charged. While the other dads were hanging out in the office, I would put the solar panel on the tent during the day and charge up the battery pack, then use the battery pack to charge up the phone at night. I was at camp for an entire week and kept the phone charged up each day.

Guide 10 solar kit is a workhorse

By Ditch

from La Crosse WI

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit:

I love my Guide 10 and use it everyday. I haven't plugged a cell phone or iPod into a wall charger for over a year and a half. I place the charger in the sun in the morning and it's charged before noon. I can also plug my devices in and charge directly if I want. The unit is super reliable. I get comments on it all the time from the people in security lines at the airport when I travel ( have to set it out for inspection) who are impressed at the simplicity of the charger. This thing has made it into my daily routine.

Powered Phones, GoPro Video & GPS!

By Durango Kid

from Durango, CO

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit:

Four of us took a seven day mountain biking trip, riding from Durango, CO to Moab, UT. The trip was hut-to-hut with no electricity available. We wanted to use GPS to augment our route finding, our iPhones to take photos and had two GoPro cameras for video. We powered all of our devices using the GoPro Guide 10 Plus. We had one set of solar panels and two battery packs. The solar panels were charging a battery pack all day and one of the battery packs was used to charge devices. We were able to keep all of our gear powered for the entire trip. We captured our unbelievable trip all thanks to GoPro!

Perfect for on the go charging

By Hut

from Winston Salem, NC

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit:

So far, I've been extremely happy with the Guide 10 Plus solar kit I received for my birthday this year. It has taken a little bit to get used to getting the best charge based on the available sunlight, but now that I know what typically works best, I keep it with me in my bag or car all the time, and take it with us when we go hiking or camping. Will be looking into more GZ products in the not so distant future!

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit:

I use the guide 10 to power video game controllers and charge my cell phone for free by charging in the sun at work. I love goal zero products and plan to purchase more.
