With the 21st Century in full swing, there is no reason you should be left without power. Thanks to our good friends over at Goal Zero, with their complete collection of solar panels, portable power packs and 2-in-1 kits, you don’t have to ever be stranded with a dead battery. Whether you’re hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, or updating your social media accounts, here to keep you powered up: your personal guide to Goal Zero:
The perfect start to your Goal Zero system, solar panels like the Nomad 7 (available at Fin & Feather) harness the power of the sun to charge your basic and sophisticated technology needs. An important thing to note however, while the solar panels do collect energy, they do not store it, and only accessories plugged directly into solar panels while they are facing the sun will get a charge. To maximize your solar charging experience, the next addition to your Goal Zero collection is a portable power pack.
Portable Power Packs
The portable power units available from Goal Zero all work independently of solar panels, and are rechargeable by AC, 12V, or USB ports (depending on the model), and outputs range from being able to charge your cellphone to an entire jobsite. Whether you’re considering something big like the YETI 1250 Solar Generator, or something you can carry in your back pocket and charge your GoPro camera fives times over (i.e. the Venture 30 Recharger), the only thing that varies more in the size of your next Goal Zero power pack is the applications it can be used for.
To get the most out of your Goal Zero experience, the combination of a Solar Panel and Portable Power Unit are your best bet. Thankfully, instead of buying each unit individually, Goal Zero offers a complete line of Solar Kits bound to get your power surging. For the assurance your cell phone always works, the Switch and Nomad 3.5 Solar Kit will do the trick, and for the professional like the filmmakers below, the Yeti 1250 Solar Generator Kit should keep you running smoothly.
