Goal Zero Nomad 20 solar panel is truly one of the bestselling solar panels on the market worldwide. Take this high watt solar panel with you anywhere. Best unit for camping and other off-grid applications. Charge your tablet, smartphone, satellite phone, GPS, iPod or other 12v devices with the Nomad 20. This solar panel features monocrystalline cells, designed to be as portable as possible. Goal Zero Nomad 20 is also weather resistant, so, rainy days, snow, or wind isn’t a problem for it. Compatible with the Sherpa 50, Sherpa 100, Yeti 150, or Yeti 400. But it takes different amounts of time to charge them. It also works in the shade and when there are a lot of clouds in the sky. I also want to say that after the first use, you will always take Goal Zero Nomad 20 with you on your camps, etc. It has a mesh zipper pocket for cables on the back, and a magnetic clasp to hold the solar panels together. This item was designed to be easily attached on or placed in a casual backpack. Weight goes up to 2.5 pounds, but it does not really affect your stamina. The abovementioned mono-crystalline solar pump technology makes these panels even more efficient, which are made from single silicon crystals, increasing the lifespan of the panels. Additionally, it delivers a higher wattage per square foot, and operates better in all kinds of light conditions. It has a built-in junction box and a smart-charging chip that lets you use this panel to directly charge small electronic devices. It is equipped with four different ports: USB, Chain in, Guide 10, 12V. You can also directly recharge solar generators such as the Yeti 150 or the Sherpa 100 using this solar panel. The USB port is there for you to charge phones, GPS, tablets, radios, lights, MP3 players, and any other electronic device (mostly handheld), that has a USB compatibility. The 12V port lets you charge Goal Zero Sherpa and Extreme 350 battery packs. The Guide 10 port is to be used to charge the Guide 10 Plus power pack. From my personal experience, I have owned the Nomad 20 for couple of years already, and I have never had a problem charging Apple products, such as iPhones, iPads, iPods and so on. However, one little disadvantage that I found out is that you will have to unplug the iPhone charger and plug it back in, in case you are charging it during heavily clouded days. There is an explanation behind it, Apple products require a steady 4.7 current, and when the day gets heavily clouded, there is a possibility that the output drops below 4.7V, causing the iPhone, iPad, etc., to stop charging, and all you have to do is just unplug and plug it back in, so the device keeps charging without a problem. It might get annoying for some people, but this is a problem from Apple and not from Goal Zero, so other solar panels will act in a same way. The Nomad 20 packs a serious punch in a small form factor, thus it is a very good choice to take it with you during camping, recreational hikes, boating, and so on.
