The Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Adventure kit is a ultra-lightweight solar panel along with a USB charging system. Although it only came in 10th place I’d bring it with me again in a heartbeat. I have used other backpacking solar panels and they were a bust. This got low scores for a number of reasons.
- I didn't use it every day. When I did use it however it worked great.
- Although it is light weight, it is delicate. It must receive gentle care.
- It isn't essential to our safety.
Although this item’s list price is high, with a little shopping around, you can find it for around $100. It is worth every penny and will pay for itself over time.
