Goal Zero Sherpa 100 Recharger

Short Review: Excellent DEVICE, especially with the inverter (Sold separately so grab it as well)..  Simply one of the best power banks on the market! This will charge my Huawei Mate 9 over 10 times from the USB ports.. It will charge my 2 DJI Spark batteries at least once each using the inverter, it will charge my Surface Pro 4 fully at least once!!  There is a lot of power in this!

Tips:  You can’t think of this as a powerbank with the typical mAH ratings we see all over Amazon.. You need to know how Watt Hours work and know that this is nearly a 100WH device!!  (Meaning it can power 100 watts for about 1 hour)

Tips 2: If you are trying to power a coffee pot, this WONT WORK.. Go for a Goal Zero Yeti 400 or higher.. You need more power for those!!

Tips 3: If you just plan on charging your cell phone while waiting on a bus, grab a cheap power bank and not this.. Save money.. THIS IS FOR OUTDOOR USE or people who need more power than your cheapo battery brick will offer.. 

Pros
1.) Can be carried on a plane
2.) Lithium (meaning it holds its charge for months)
3.) Includes laptop cables and more are available from Goal Zero
4.) Buy the inverter and this thing can produce 100 WATTS of power!!
5.) Small, easy to carry
6.) Uses are ENDLESS – Laptops, Drone Batteries, Cell Phones, Lights, pretty much anything
7.) Quality is outstanding
8.) Can be chained (linked) with other Sherpas for even more power
9.) Easy to charge VIA Goal Zero solar panels (Remember solar panels can convert energy but you need a way to store it.. This works VERY WELL)
10.) 98WH (Basically this means that this device can provide about 100 watts of power for 1 hour!)

Overall: This thing rocks!  It works well and is very high quality!

GOAL ZERO NOMAD 100 Solar Panel

I really enjoy this panel! Very durable and wonderful output

Example: One day I was cleaning my panel inside.. I noticed the “power light” was on.. I measured it’s output and I was receiving 13 Watts inside my apartment from the sun shining through the windows! Outside on a good day I average about 45 – 50watts and it has peaked at 62 Watts.

Tips: Remember, a 100watt solar panel will probably never hit 100watts! Atmosphere, weather conditions, time of day, and even the length of your cord all affect the output of a panel.. a good panel, you can expect about 50% of it’s output on average.

Pros
1.) Durable!
2.) Works well with Goal Zero Yetis
3.) Excellent Output
4.) Long cable (about 6ft)
5.) Extension Cables available (keep in mind, the Goal Zero brand cables lose about 1% output per ft)

Cons
1.) Price – However, I own several 80 – 100 Watt panels and the Goal Zero is built better than any of them! Plus, it is full of technology and great American support.. A lot of my other panels have Chinese support and while there is nothing wrong with that, I simply can’t pick up a phone and call.. With Goal Zero you can

Overall: Great Panel, I highly recommend it

Tips
1.) This is designed to charge battery generators or other power packs.. Works much better if you do! I can charge my Yeti 150 fully in about 4 hours with this
