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.

I bought this this month as a solution to managing AA and AAA resources in the "field". I use a Garmin E-Trex, a mag-light, a AAA LED headlamp, and a Nikon AA powered Digital camera. I no longer have to start watching my battery usage. If the sun comes out, this is a very good charger and in a few hours I have four fresh batteries. I have also used it to bump up my Lighthouse 250, and a cell phone. rch
This is the second Guide 10 Plus I've purchased. The first works fine five years on, but I needed to expand to a second rig. I've backpacked with it for years, used it to charge phones, GPS, swapping batteries for headlamps. It is durable and reliable. It is cool to be able to charge AA or AAA with any USB source as well as a solar panel.
I bought this item with a dual purpose use in mind. One for batteries for my headlamp and flashlight and second to use as a power pack for my android phone. Item works good for the batteries but is next to useless for charging my cell phone. I usually get a 10 to 15% boost in my cellphone battery power from the fully charged guide 10 but that is all before it needs to be charged again. Thinking it was the batteries I tried a new set with same results.
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
worked great for about a year - then all of a sudden doesn't charge anymore
Rechargeable batteries are a must. This Guide 10 also charges triple As and it can charge my Iphone. It's nice to have something that can be charged with my Nomad 7 panel during the day and then charge my phone at night. It's a multi purpose charger - charge your stuff as well as recharging your batteries. Love it. Great with the Nomad 7.
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.
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.
my 4s iphone and mini ipad will not charge from my guide 10. i am running the latest operating system from apple, ios 8.4. my ipad says that it does not recognize the guide 10. what is the fix?
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.
