this is a great, light, compact, well thought-out product. it's got lots of loops for multiple hanging options to maximize charge, and it packs up small when you don't need it. it charges faster than advertised on a sunny day at elevation, and is about as advertised at sea level (slower or faster depending on a bunch of factors).
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.
but it works and there aren't many other ways to recharge stuff in the bc.
This charger is pretty awesome. It gets the job done. It will charge your phone or other small electronics. Having the battery charger is nice for extended trips. You can recharge batteries to use in headlamps or a GPS unit. Having the batter charger double as a re charger is nice for recharging electronics when there is not enough sunlight. The lashing loops are great for lashing it to your pack so you can charge on the go
The biggest thing problem you will run into is positioning the panels to get maximum power. But after a little practice you will get used to it.
Over all this is a good charger for on the trail. If you have small electronics you need to keep charged this is the charger for you.
This is such a good thing! It does exactly what it says; it's light weight, takes a licking, and can literally save your life. And, you get to live guilt free with renewable energy. This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I use it in the city and the wilderness and when the zombie apocalypse arrives, I'll be living comfortably with music and light!
Awesome piece of gear!
