GoalZero Nomad 3.5 and Guide 10 Plus

Pretty stoked to find this little gem.  The guy who owned it said it wasn't what he expected ( charging an iPhone ) was no go.  I wanted it for what I see its real strength is, capturing the suns energy then storing it in batteries to be used later. 

Anyone got feed back on this device?  I looked at them a while ago but the price kept me away.  I couldn't walk away from this one however for $12.  Yeah you read that right!  Scoooooooooore.

Wow, $12? :o  :ahhh

I've been wanting one of those for 2 years, maybe longer. I think I posted about that in a few threads before.

Would love to hear what your experiences have been with it so far? Also, why couldn't the previous owner charge his phone on it? no appropriate charging cable or what?

He said he was a cyclist that toured all over the US.  He was getting rid of most his stuff.  He had camping gear as well but nothing I needed.  I did however also pick up an MSR fuel bottle. 

I'm going to charge 4 AA batteries tomorrow.  It was missing the AAA adapter but I've located one.  It did have the necessary cables for charging so I firgued it wasn't up to the task just solar alone.  I'm certain with 4 AA batteries being charged from the sun then using those to charge the phone would be fine.  He may not have been aware of using the Guide 10 as a power bank? 

I was so surprise when he said what he wanted  :D.  I honestly couldn't take my money out fast enough.

 :D Enki if I do ever want to move it on, IF, you sir would be my first thought. 

It's amazing little piece of gear.  I'm still a little surprised having finally acquiring one myself.
