this is a cool little recharging platform. it's got a negligible weight (pretty much just the batteries) and it's a little smaller than my hand. it charges fairly quickly on a sunny day at 8000 feet with the guide 10, and closer to the estimated times at normal elevations.
my complaint is that it started smoking when i tried to charge my droid razr. the good news is i called goal zero and they overnight delivered a new charging pack and a smart phone adapter as they had reports that certain phones caused issues.
it takes a LONG time to recharge your phone, so you have to be good about charing the batteries all day and recharging your phone at night. i would guess headlamps recharge more quickly, but haven't tried that yet.
I picked up the Guide 10 Recharger in order to have a little juice for my phone when my solar panel wasn't getting any sun. It works well with the Nomad 7 solar panel, but probably my favorite thing about the Guide 10 is that I can fully charge it at home with a USB adapter and have a good amount of juice to start my adventure. Recommended.
