Goal Zero Solar Chargers Are Perfect For Travel
Have you guys heard of Goal Zero before??
Goal Zero is an innovator of portable solar power systems that power a variety of USB, AC, and DC devices anytime, anywhere. I came across the brand on Instagram a while back but had never seen them in person. When I went to the LA Times Travel show (in 2013), they had a booth and I saw them up close and personal.

The Switch Charger
This is the Sherpa Battery
These solar chargers are perfect for round the world travelers and outdoor adventurers. Their chargers aren’t just for people who spend time off the grid. The chargers would even be perfect for a beach holiday or fishing trip. I couldn’t tell you how many times the battery on my iPhone or camera would give out on me while out on a snorkel trip or even a day at the beach. As a gear junkie, I need to be able to charge on the fly! Goal Zero would have been ideal when I was in Palawan where electricity is still on power schedules and electricity in my guest house was only on for 6 hours.
After going to the LA Times Travel show, Goal Zero sent me a charging kit to test out. I don’t use it on the daily but when I know that I’ll be outside or not able to get to a plug, I’ll bring it along with me.
Here are examples of my Goal Zero in use:
