Not bad, but GZ stuff is still over priced. I have three of the Sherpa 50s Xmas packs from the REI deal a couple years ago... That jeep medic generator guy posted them. Think they were like $76 for the Sherpa 50, inverter, and the newer style lamp. You can order a link cable to connect two 50s together off the GZ website. Think it's like $8.

Nomad 13 is a 13 watt Monocrystalline panel that folds and easy fits in a backpack without taking too much room. Nomad 20 is a 20 watt.

their stuff is pretty good, and their warranty is also pretty good. However, you do pay a premium for it. Does it perform better than a similiar sized allpower? That depends- in my testing, theres more variance in the output of allpowers (this is the 27watt vs the old goal zero 27 watt). The disconnects from cloud cover is just as variable. The connectors are better built in the goal zero (especially their newer generations) and the layout has been better thought out.
I don't know if this has pass through charging- some of their models offer it. Some do not. Pass through charging and constant on charging is very important in some configurations (i.e. keeping a cell phone at full charge- some charge packs will turn off after it no longer detects a high enough draw) Also allows uninterrupted charging which is important in some devices (iphones I think).

I try to keep away from inverters. They work in a pinch, and sometimes you need it because something doesn't have the capability for DC conversion, but its gotten a lot better over the last 10 years. Even my cheapo baofengs which never had a 5VDCcharging option now readily has USB Charge converters on amazon and ebay. (converts from 5vDCto DC10V). Some of the extended battery packs come with their own charge port, so it gowes from 5v to 7.4.

If you have some snazzy SLRthat you need charged, try and find a Pixo C-USB. Its a USB powered battery charger, and will charge AA, AAA, battery packs (3.7v) and radio packs (7.4v). Which just about covers all LI electronics, san RCR123's , etc. 10 years ago, this was about the only way to charge a radio battery. Its still nice to have, but I rarely use it.

I have the Hero 4, and used it for that. But then I found a multi charger deal on SD, and that was usb direct.

Not a bad price for GZ. But, buy based on what you need. If all you need is USB power, there are more affordable options. You can get a decent powerbank and portable charger for $100-110, which can handle a phone, chromebook, or USB camera battery charger. The laptop port on this seems like it would make it worthwhile for some. I'd consider biting on a Sherpa 50 kit when the inverter package goes on sale, which would suit my needs better.

I've got a Yeti 150 and Renogy 50W & 100W panels. Fantastic little power station that works great with camping & tailgating! 50W panel stays on my patio and trickle charges the system at home, while I strap the 100W to my roof rack.
