We've had the Nomad 7 for a year and bought the Guide 10 Plus just a few days ago. We've used the solar panel far more then we've ever used it before because the panel charges the pack faster then the devices, and the pack charges the devices more reliably, and therefore faster. There are 2 things I dislike about the product. One is the price. While i can use my panel a lot more, a regular [$] is too high. We almost walked away until the sales agent let us know it was on sale for [$]. Also the goal zero batteries are twice as much as other NiMH rechargeable batteries. If there's something unique about the goal zero batteries, I'd love to know it.The other complaint is about the device itself. The switch is Off, Charge, Light. It's very easy to slip past the middle position and then to the light. So when we charge our devices, we have to fiddle with it for a moment to keep it in the middle position. I think a better way would've been to have the light in the middle position,as that will probably be used less.

I'm a wilderness firefighter, I find myself using this product mostly to charge my headlamp batteries during the day for night use. However I find no matter how long I leave my rechargeable batteries to charge with the Nomad 7 they have about 1/3 the life of regular batteries. This product is not very ideal for charging my iPhone 4S. A design feature that would make this product more adapted to being adaptable to more emergency oriented situations would be the ability to be able to put regular batteries in it solely to charge electronics and save the recharged batteries for when the user runs out of regular batteries. The little LED light comes in handy as the metal strap on the opposite end allows the whole device to be hung in a tent and used for light. I encountered a very annoying problem, in temperatures above 100 deg (frequently encountered on a daily basis in the west during the summer), there is a little thermal switch that shuts down the devices ability to both recharge batteries and charge devices.

Great for batteries bad for phones

By RDVA

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Power Pack:

I like this product but I'm a little disappointed. The fact that you can charge batteries from solar power in the field is really really awesome. That alone make this product worth it. However it barley charged smart phones. When ever I plug in my phone is says "slow charge please connect to your original charger". Goal Zero was even nice enough to send me a little adapter, free of charge, to correct the issue. Still didn't give a normal charge. So make of that what you will. I hope Goal Zero revamps this product to fit better in the world of Smart phones. But if you use a lot of batteries in the filed you really should own this product. I wish I could give 3 1/2 stars

I use the Guide 10 Plus with my Nomad 20 to keep a set of AA & AAA fully charged for my GPS and head lights. Either size fully charged in under 3 hours with the Nomad 20.

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Power Pack:

Got this a few years ago for keeping devices charged while camping and it worked great with my iphone 4 and some other electronics. Super happy. This summer, though, tried it with the iphone 5 (and more recently a 6), and found it never charged the phone, in spite a full day in the sun and a new set of batteries. Then noticed that the housing had melted around the LED. Either way it doesn't charge my primary device (iPhone 6) off the USB port which is my main application.

Underpowered

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Power Pack:

This does not charge an iPhone. Nor an iPad. The GZ stick light I bought as a companion only stays lit for 30 minutes. I'm returning it to where I bought it. I tried for a month of car camping and backpacking before deciding.

don't expect it to do more then it is built to.

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Power Pack:

Nice for charging AAs and will charge devices but could not fully charge my smartphone while I was listening to music on it. I tend to use it more as a controller to charge my USB power pack with my solar panels.

By DanH

Comments about Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Power Pack:

My iPhone 5 was down to 38%. Plugged in the Guide 10, and it quit charging at 51%. 13% recharge isnt even close to "1 smartphone charge" Was thinking of buying a Sherpa 50 or 100, but if they only charge 1/10th of their supposed "ratings" they aren't worth the price either. At least the solar panel charges my Rock Out Speakers....
