Is the Nomad 14 Plus Solar Panel Waterproof?
Yes. Goal Zero has gone to great lengths to ruggedize the Nomad 14 Plus; including beefing up the manufacturing process with advanced lamination techniques so it’ll slough off rain and snow. However, if the junction box gets soaking wet, it is recommended to let it dry out before plugging in.
Does the Nomad 14 Plus have a built-in battery?
No. Goal Zero made the Nomad 14 Plus to be as modular and lightweight as possible, that meant selling batteries as an optional accessory. You can either plug your phone or device directly into the Nomad 14 Plus, or pair it with one of Goal Zero’s rechargers to store power for later (like at night when you go inside). A Goal Zero Venture Recharger or Sherpa Power Pack with the Nomad 14 Plus is recommended.
Is this chainable with other Nomad panels?
Yes, but only on some Goal Zero Nomad Solar Panels. You can plug the Charge Cable into the chaining ports on older Nomad Solar Panels. The Nomad 14 Plus cannot be chained with the Nomad 7 Plus or Nomad 7 Solar Panels.
How does the Solar Intensity Indicator work?
Science. Goal Zero’s engineers developed patent-pending electronic brains for the Nomad 14 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 14 Plus and charge it directly from the sun. You’ll know the conditions are right by checking out the Solar Intensity Indicator.
