The Goal Zero Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panel gives you the ability to keep your your electronics (tablets, phones, GPS units, headlamps, etc) charged while away from power.  


Best Use:  Camping, backpacking situations if weight is not a big concern or situations where large amounts of power are needed (the Goal Zero Nomad 5 Solar Kit offered for rent through Gear Shack may be a better choice for backpackers who are concerned about weight)


MSRP:  $249.95


From Goal Zero:

A 28-Watt panel re-engineered to be lighter and smarter, the Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panel has the innovative technology to charge USB devices directly from the sun. Detachable kickstand for modularity and power-flow indicator ensure the best solar charging experience. Larger footprint allows for quicker charging for the Yeti and Sherpa power packs.
