Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus

Use the standard USB connector for charging your small USB-powered devices. You can charge the battery pack by connecting it to a compatible USB power source or solar panel.

The Guide 10 Plus is a go-anywhere rechargeable battery pack that will keep your handheld gear going strong. Its compact size makes it perfect to toss in a backpack or purse for recharging power wherever and whenever you need it. Charge AA/AAA batteries from the sun or any USB port, then power your phone, camera or GPS, or perk up your tablet in a pinch.

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.
