It's not often that I find myself mapping 1300 year old villages, but when I do, Goal Zero, coffee, and goat cheese curds powers my day. Pictured here is the Sherpa 50 battery with the Nomad 27 panel linked to a Topcon total station. In this section I will focus on the Sherpa 50 battery.
For a little bit of context, I conduct archaeological research in remote regions of Mongolia. We have an extremely large power budget, fueling numerous computers, GPS units, iPads, phones, cameras, and various other sorts of equipment for a large group (up to 20 people). Equipment, in order of importance, is: 1) computers; 2) iPads; 3) GPS units. To meet our power requirements, we also use the now discontinued Sherpa 120, the Extreme 350 battery, and a Honda generator for rainy days. Of the three solar batteries, I think the Sherpa 50 is the most useful. I say this because of its light weight, quick recharge time, and number of smaller electrical items that can be recharged from one power cycle of the battery.
Because the computers are the most important item for our daily operation we mainly reserve the Extreme 350 and Sherpa 120 for powering them (these are also great batteries and we still sneak in a GPS unit or two on the power strip running off the 350), as such these batteries are stuck at base camp constantly cycling through various states of charge. The Sherpa 50 fills in nicely because it can quickly power an item, be taken into the field where it can be recharged in a morning or afternoon and then either provide an important 'top-off' charge that allows us to finish a day of work, or be taken back to camp to power a second item that night. Honest to goodness, a good product – okay, maybe not as good as goat cheese curds but at least it leaves your breath a whole heck of a lot fresher.

I purchased this device so that I could recharge my camera and laptop while travelling this summer. It charges the camera just fine. The invertor however does not charge my laptop. I called and gave my model (Acer Aspire V3) type to someone explaining what happened. He confirmed that model would work fine if I bought the 12w laptop charger kit. I bought one. It arrived and the plug did not make a connection with my computer. I called back speaking with a different person. She spoke to an engineer and they said it didn't work for them on that model. Gave me the website of a company that makes plugs. Problem is that as a customer who spent over $500 I am not the one who should be sorting out these problems. Goalzero should be sorting this out. And selling the finished product to people like me willing to spend the money. I would prefer a call back from GoalZero about how they are going to fix this problem.

        Comments about Goal Zero Sherpa 50 Solar Kit W/ Inverter - Black:

        I have purchased multiple Goal Zero products (Yeti 400, 4 Boulder 50s) and this Sherpa 50 in late 2015 / early 2016. I use the Yeti and Boulders on a regular basis for tailgating, camping, etc. These two products work phenomenally and I've never had an issue.

        However, I've had the Sherpa 50 with inverter since early 2016 and since then the unit has been nothing but problems. Initially I purchased the item to give an additional charge to my MacBook Air and iPhone when I was off the grid. The first time I used it, it only charged the MacBook Air about 1/2 way and I got about 1-2 charges off the unit. Needless to say I was disappointed in the underperforming charge of this product. I would make sure that I properly charged the unit and used the inverter properly. Still, I could not get more of a charge.

        This past August 2017, I went to use the unit and there was no charge in the unit. After trying to re-charge the unit (which I accomplished two-weeks prior with a full charge), the unit would not hold a charge. Disappointed.

          I use this product to charge my RC's at events. And I left it to charge at our booth at the end of the day and came back in the morning and the solar panel was soaking wet from the morning dew and the Sherpa 50 was Damp as well. but once the sun came up and came out it started charging again. what a excellent product!

            Dont count on it

            Comments about Goal Zero Sherpa 50 Solar Kit W/ Inverter - Black:

            I bought the Serpa 50 and Nomad 13 panel a couple of years ago for an upcoming trip, that was canceled. I also bought 3 of the lantern lights to work with it. This went unused for a year or so and I took it out and plugged in to charge. It wouldn't hold a charge, even thought the indicator read 80% or full. Now it wont even power the lights with it plugged into house current. A fair amount of money spent, with absolutely nothing to show for it. Since all the plugs are proprietary, I can't even use the lights with another power source.

            I use the Sherpa 50 with my Yeasu 817 Ametuer radio in the field. It is easy to set up and use.

            I use this guy at camping and backpacking. Very handy to use for many purposes for my tablet, camera, lighting, and cell. I couldn't live without it. Sherpa 100 is nice, but I don't need that much watts per night. 50 watts is plenty for me for what I use.
