Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invaluable for long trips I brought a Nomad 13 (as well as a Nomad 7 and a Sherpa 50) on with me on a recent trip across western Mongolia. In brief, I was thorougly impressed by the durability, flexibility, and raw power of the panel. Despite falling off the roof of my car at high speeds (multiple times), being accidentally run over by another car, and getting completely covered in dust, sand, and mud, it worked flawlessly throughout—so long as it was oriented toward the sun. I chained it with the Nomad 7 to charge a Sherpa 50 power pack, and also used it to charge some of my smaller USB devices directly (iPod, GoPro, etc). It's definitely an investment, but a worthy one. The Nomad 13 proved to be an invaluable piece of equipment on this trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useful Great product. It has come a long way since the original sherpa panels. The multiple outputs straight off the panel provide very useful energy without the need for a battery pack. It also gives flexibility on what you can charge. I've been using mine on and off for a while at home and on the go. It performs better than the previous nomad one comparable to size. The new size and form factor with storage is also a welcome addition. You can keep a lot of your stuff in it while in use or traveling. All in all one of the better panels on the market right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best panel ever! The nomad 13 is amazing. it can charge up my smart phone just as fast as the wall. The best part about it is that I can charge my gear anywhere as long as there is sun. I bought this plus a cord to chain it to the boulder 15(which we I already own) and together they powered the escape 150 really fast it can be full in day. there was only one problem. The panel has straps all around the side to hang it. 2 of the straps broke not a problem and I'm contacting GZ support about it. overall this panel is efficient, durable and portable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Go bigger It works well for charging small things like primitve cell phones, and camera batteries. But if you are planning on using it with the Yeti 150 as part of a kit, like I bought it for you might as well forget it. The Nomad 13 is under powered to charge up the Yeti from an empty state of bettery life. It takes multiple days to get it back to full. I bought mine in hopes of using it while boondocking in my vintage camper. I use my Yeti 150 primarily to run string lights at night, and the occasional recharging of cell phones and the like. The battery life goes to nill after 1 day. I can't get it back to full before my trip is over using the Nomad 13. If you are buying a solar generator, buy a bigger solar panel to go with it. Maybe the Boulder 30, or the Escape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Foldable power I love that i can take it nearly anywhere and be confident that my headlamp, camera batteries, and gps will not run out of energy. In conjunction with the sherpa50 the nomad 13 is a little power house. the usb port has inconsistent charging when it came to power up the Ipod and would only charge when the panel was taken out of direct perpendicular sunlight placement. in full sun the Ipod says that charging with this accessory is not permitted. thats my only gripe. three cheers for goal zero's nomad 13

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enough Power for Smartphones and GPS I bought the Nomad 13 and a Guide 10 Plus for a longer hiking trip with unsave/unsure energy supply. The Nomad 13 has enough power to charge the Guide 10 fairly quick even in diffuse daylight conditions. One charge of the G10 Plus will push a iPad 1s' battery up by about 20% or an iPhone4 to about 80% or more. I dislike that the Nomad 13s solar surface scratches really easily. A cloth like those for laptop screen protection would be nice and wouldn't add much to the weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get this instead of the 7 I use my Goal Zero panels for charging batteries during off-grid ethnographic research. I probably should have gone straight to the Nomad 13 instead of getting the Nomad 7 first... it's much better for charging the Guide 10 battery pack. You can also charge other batteries (such as deep cycle solar batteries) with the Guardian 12V Charge Controller. That said, the Nomad 7 is still a convenient workhorse and will get the job done if you need something small. But, if you're deciding between the 7 and 13, just go with the 13 if your budget allows. On the downside, one of the clip rings for hanging the unit broke. It was not properly sewn into the stitching around the edge and pulled out while hanging from the small carabiner (that came with the 7 but not the 13 for some reason). Other than that annoyance, no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paragliding Powersupply I put the Nomad13 on the outside of my paradliding harness in flight. I have to keep three different flight instruments running on long cross country flights. I used to take big(!) power bars for energy support. The Nomad13 is of much help since it is able to charge multiple devices at once. And sometimes after long flights you end up in the middle of nowhere, where you really really need it. Good for XC-paragliders that the sun always shines when doing the sport ;)
