Two ways to charge the Guide 10 Plus

There are a couple ways to keep the Guide 10 Plus charged up and ready to go. If you don't have access to a conventional source of power, you can connect the Guide 10 Plus to Goal Zero's Nomad 7 solar panel (a full recharge takes 2-4 hours). Or, you can plug the Guide 10 Plus into any USB power source, such as a laptop (takes 8-10 hours to recharge).

If you plan to go solar and use the Guide 10 Plus with the Nomad 7, check out the Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit, which includes both products.

Overview: The Guide 10 Plus battery charger includes four AA NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries and offers two options for charging, the Solar port plugged into an optional Nomad 7 or Nomad 13 solar panel (item numbers 79711800 and 79712003, sold separately), or the mini-USB type-B input port connected to another USB power supply. An adapter is included for charging four AAA NiMH batteries (AAA batteries not included). With the charged batteries inside, the Guide 10 Plus acts as a USB power supply using its USB type-A output port. The built-in LED flashlight will run for more than 100 hours on a full charge. An LED indicates the amount of charging completed (while charging) and power availability (when not charging).
