Charged my backup battery charger for my verizon galaxy nexus perfectly. Only drawback was I had to constantly reinsert the USB charging cable if I walked in and out of the sunlight since it didn't like the drop in voltage. On second day at Disneyland, switched to Guide 10 pack which manages change in charging voltage better.

I got complements, like "Cool Backpack". I had to tell them that it was a normal backpack with a Goal Zero clipped to it. Folded up easily when I went on rides with the kids.

SUGGESTION: Cut hole in pocket that holds charger or Goal Zero should make a clear window so you can see the status LED of whatever you are charging.

The Nomad 7 did not work well with the iPhone 4. The Goal0 website implies plug-and-play compatibility with Apple products, and fails to clearly indicate any problems with charging Apple devices. Only in the customer comments and FAQs did I uncover the known problems between Apple products and the Nomad 7. The proposed solutions were unacceptable: I was not interested in constantly monitoring the charging process, disconnecting & reconnecting the iPhone with every passing cloud, nor did I care to spend an additional $60 to purchase the Guide 10 power pack. I therefore returned the product, expecting a full refund. Not only did Goal0 fail to provide a refund, they quit responding to any of my messages regarding the return. I was ultimately forced to dispute the charge through my credit card. I would not recommend this product or this company to anyone.

    Comments about Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel - Black:

    I bought two panels about three months ago and have loved using just the one for now. I wanted to get more power out so I tried to chain them together but the cords are too short no matter how I try to orient them.

    Great idea, poorly executed.

    Comments about Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel - Black:

    The cords for chaining the panels together are too short. This makes it very awkward to get them into a position to actually charge. More of a novelty than something I would depend on.

    Waste of time and money

    By 

    from Los Angeles, CA, United States

    Comments about Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel - Black:

    The first week with the solar panel was decent. Then it completely stopped working. Won't charge a phone, won't charge an external battery. I left it in direct sunlight for 8 hours this weekend to make sure, and it added zero battery life to anything. The worst part is bringing it on a trip and figuring out halfway thru that it is not doing anything.

    Backpacking on John Muir Trail

    By 

    from San Jose, CA

    Comments about Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel - Black:

    My son bought the Goal Zero Nomad 7 and showed it to me when we started the John Muir Trail. He brought 2 cameras and we had 2 iPhones (for GPS). These charging panels even charged our batteries in the rain! I was amazed at how quickly our batteries would get charged. We never had any power shortages throughout our 3-week hike. I recommend these panels to anyone going into the wilderness. Strap these outside your pack and charge as much as you want. For backpackers, weight is an important issue and these panels are perfect.

      Comments about Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel - Black:

      I've taken my Nomad over a dozen times to the bush in Uganda. It's totally been trashed as you can imagine, but still works fine, pumping out free electricity. If you're traveling to a developing country where there is a spotty power grid, it's an absolute necessity.
