With the Guide 10 Plus Recharger and Nomad 7 Solar Panel you have a portable, rugged charging kit as adventurous as you are.
Charge AAs from the sun or any USB port, then power your GPS, phone, MP3 or perk up your tablet in a pinch.
Made for those walking a long distance trail and will not have access to power points. The solar panels charge the AA batteries that you then can put in your GPS units, but you can also use the recharger pack to also charge your mobile phone and other devices.
