WINNER - Win a Goal Zero Solar Panel / Nomad 7 Plus Competition

© Burton McCall

WINNER: tompaul

The innovative Nomad solar panels have been reengineered to be lighter and smarter than their predecessors, with a detachable kickstand for modularity and patent-pending electronics to ensure the best solar charging experience - even when charging phones directly from the sun.

The Nomad 7 Plus Solar Panel charges smartphones and other USB-powered devices, even in unpredictable environments, without the need of a battery. Its thin profile, light weight and intelligent design make it easy to use anywhere.

Additional features of the Nomad 7 Plus include:

Junction Box with Solar Intensity Indicator. Serving as the brain of the panel, the junction box and all its components serve to take the guess work out of charging from solar. The Solar Intensity Indicator uses patent-pending electronics and four LED lights to accurately communicate the quality of current solar conditions. Once a load device is connected to the Nomad 7 Plus, the indicator lights will blink in accordance with how fast the device is charging.

Dynamic Auto Restart.The Nomad 7 Plus has a dynamic auto restart feature that's smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, the Nomad 7 Plus knows the difference between a device that is fully charged versus one that disconnects due to environmental causes (i.e. lack of sunlight, shadow, solar eclipse, etc.). When environmental causes are detected, the Nomad 7 Plus will automatically reconnect the charging device and continue charging.

Modular Kickstand. The detachable kickstand on the Nomad 7 Plus gives users ultimate modularity. When attached via its built in magnets, the kickstand pops out into the optimal angle for positioning toward the sun. It also provides natural shade and a vented pocket for keeping user's devices cool during charging.

I've got one of these:http://amzn.to/2rPuPhR which is half the price and twice the output. In decent sunlight it'll charge two smartphones simultaneously at full current. That's not a guess, I've measured it. Si.
It's also out of stock... In addition to that, whilst you make complaints about price on each thread we publish you seem to have no problem with directing people towards Amazon - a company that is guilty of massive tax avoidance. May I suggest you re-calibrate your priorities and direct what money you do spend, irrespective of how much that is, towards companies that actually pay their taxes.

Or buy from Amazon and donate part of your saving to charity?

I have an Anker PowerPort Solar Lite - half the price of the Goal Zero and absolutely superb.(https://www.anker.com/products/A2422011) Available from well know web retailers.

Blimey, you sound cross. I did a search for the solar charger and copied the first hit in the list, which just happened to be Amazon. Someone recently suggested that instead of commenting purely on prices I could also suggest alternatives, which this time I did. I don't see what's wrong with that. I've quite a bit of experience with solar chargers, and £70 odd quid for a 7 Watt panel is an awful lot. Cheers, Si.
