Nomad 7 Plus V2 Solar Panel

Re-engineered to be lighter and smarter, the Goal Zero Nomad 7 Plus Solar Panel has the innovative technology to charge USB devices directly from the sun. It also has a detachable kickstand for modularity and a power-flow indicator that helps ensure the best solar charging experience. It brings top-notch convenience to the charging of your favorite devices.

Nomad 7 Plus Highlights

  • Smart Charging for Phones
    The Nomad 7 Plus features an auto restart that’s smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, it knows the difference between a device that has reached a fully charged state and one that disconnects due to environmental causes, i.e. lack of sunlight, shadow, solar eclipse, etc. When the latter is detected, it automatically reconnects the charging device, no extra work on your part is needed.

  • Rugged and Modular
    Detachable kickstand provides optimum angle placement, natural shade for charging devices and a vented pocket for temperature regulation. Weatherproof layering easily sloughs rain and snow.

  • Junction Box + Solar Intensity Indicator
    Several key components work together to ensure you have the best solar charging experience, including the Solar Intensity Indicator. These 4 LED lights are indicative of current solar conditions and give you an idea of how well your gear will charge.

What can the Nomad 7 charge?

The solar panel does not hold a charge it produces power when it is exposed to sunlight. You can plug your phone directly into the panel or use it to recharge a portable recharger for later use. The Nomad 7 Plus is great for recharging things like:

  • Headlamps
  • Phones
  • Other smaller USB devices

Is it waterproof?
The best answer: it’s weatherproof. Goal Zero has gone to great lengths to ruggedize this particular Nomad model; including beefing up the manufacturing process with advanced lamination techniques so it’ll slough off rain and snow. However, take care to keep the Junction Box dry and if it does get wet, allow it to completely dry before trying to charge.

Does it have a built-in battery?
No. We made the Nomad 7 to be as modular and light-weight as possible, which means selling batteries as an optional accessory. You can either plug your phone or device directly into the Nomad 7 Plus, or pair it with one of our rechargers to store power for later (like at night or when you go inside).

Is this chainable with other Nomad panels?
Technically, yes; however, it is not recommended. You can plug the Rapid Charge Cable into the chaining ports on version 2 and 3 of the Nomad 7. That being said, the increase in output would be incredibly minimal so you probably wouldn’t notice a significant difference.

How does the Solar Intensity work?
Goal Zero engineers have developed patent-pending electronic brains for the Nomad 7 Plus that ensures you have the best solar charging experience possible. Part of the electronics include an advanced current sensor (way better than a voltmeter) and unique maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller to optimize the USB output. What you need to know is when conditions are right, you can plug a phone into the Nomad 7 Plus and charge it directly from the sun. You’ll know the conditions are right by checking out the Solar Intensity Indicator.
