Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Battery but very slow to charge I have charged my cell phone, gopro and portable speaker several times with the Venture 30 battery. It really does hold a lot of power supply. I am disappointed with the solar charging of the Venture 30. I have tried to recharge the Venture 30 with the Nomad 7 two times and on both occasions only seen meager results. The first time I left the unit and charger on my deck in the sun for 6 hours to find that it had only recharged 2 blue lights or 40%. The second time I had it on the back of my bike for 3 to 4 hours and it only charged 10%. After rereading the manual it states that the Nomad 7 can take up to 16 hours to fully charge the Venture 30. Perhaps a larger solar panel would be more useful as a kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I normally don't write reviews, but I've been so pleased with this unit I figured I owe it to Goal Zero. Went out on a limb with this purchase, since its a relatively new product with not very many reviews.....however this solar kit really seems to do exactly what I wanted it to. I was looking for a battery capable of charging my phablet (samsung galaxy note) more than once...so when I initially got this unit I put it to the test. I made sure the battery was fully charged, and then managed to charge up my phone from 2% to 100% two separate times. I didn't time it, but in both cases it took 1 - 1.5 hours to go from empty to full. So I would guess a regular sized smartphone (iphone 5) could probably get three full charges. I'm also impressed with how quickly the solar panel can directly charge my phone....a good hour of strong sunlight seems to add 40-50% to my phone battery, connected directly to the solar panel. In my experience so far, it seems to take 8-9 hours of a sunny day to get the solar pack to charge from 0 to 100, which is fine with me. Also - I think the peak solar hours (10-3ish) are really when you get the most bang for your buck from the sun (obviously). So overall, a great travel/every day companion for small to medium sized electronics. I love the extra pluses like a built in LED light to the battery pack, and different charging algorithms to optimize charging speed. This is the first Goal Zero product I've bought, but they've made it on to my "quality brand" list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit ! I bought the Venture 30 kit in preparation for my first trip to The Boundary Waters National Park, I wanted to have enought energy backup to recharge my electronics. I am extremely pleased with the results, I kept the Venture 30 to be used during cloudy days, the solar panel was great enough to charge 2 GoPro batteries and my Delorme Explorer GPS in a sunny day. I used the Venture 30 recharge my GoPro batteries and my Canon DSLR batteries when needed. The total trip was 8 days canoeing and camping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This unit charges during the day then charges my IPad and IPhone at night. Planning on using at the Experimental Aircraft fly-in in Oshkosh WI this year. I use the IPad as backup navigation and traffic avoidance. The battery pack insures I will never run out of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact kit This is something I use every day. With my line of work is the most convenient way of recharging my cell phone. It has multiple ports for recharging more than one item at a time, I really love that feature. I did have a problem with the cable, But customer service took care of it real quick and sent me a new cable within days! Thank you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected Within two days of my purchase my kit saved my butt. Maybe it was my imagination but I'd swear it charged my phone, GPS and tablet far faster than advertised. Or maybe I was just lucky. Either way, it's everything I expected and more. Compact, light, easy to use and does the job! LOVE IT!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool, tough, and piece of mind I added the Venture 30 kit to my B.O.B. but I also found myself leaving it in my car to always have backup power. I often do work on construction sites where power isn't always ready and this device keeps my tablet, phone, and other accessories charged without worry. Leave it on the rear deck of the car or between your sunroof and sliding cover on the drive home to start recharging. The feature that keeps the charge from draining during extended storage is great!

How long can I power my laptop or tablet with this?

Asked by: Secret
Thanks for the question! The Venture won't charge a laptop because it is only 30 watts. It would take about 4 hours to charge your tablet from a USB and 9 hours in full sun. Hope this helps!
