Powering

THE SHERPA 50 POWERS YOUR DEVICE IN 3 WAYS:

USB
The USB port best charges all your medium USB powered devices.

Laptop Port
Use the included laptop tips to power your laptop without the need of the laptop wall charger. For Apple Laptop products, we strongly recommend using the Sherpa 100 Power Pack for the best performance.

AC Inverter
Plug in your device just as you would to the wall with the removable inverter. Included with a Sherpa 50 Solar Kit purchase
Some laptops like the MacBook Air 13in and Surface Pro3 requiring 1A, are not compatible with the Sherpa Inverter. The Sherpa Inverter is rated at .7A

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO CHARGE YOUR DEVICE FROM GOAL ZERO POWER PACKS?

It takes the same amount of time to charge your device from a Goal Zero power pack as it does from the wall.

WHAT CAN THE NOMAD 13 SOLAR PANEL CHARGE?

The Nomad 13 will directly charge most USB and 12V devices. Most handheld USB devices, include: Cell phone, smart phone, GPS, MP3 player

WHAT GOAL ZERO PRODUCTS WORK BEST WITH THE NOMAD 13?

Goal Zero Switch 8 Recharger, Guide 10 Plus, Sherpa 50 Recharger, Rock Out Portable Speaker, Guardian 12V Charge Controller, Yeti 150, Yeti 400

CAN I USE THE USB AND 12V PORTS TO CHARGE DEVICES SIMULTANEOUSLY?

Yes. The Nomad 13 will split the incoming solar power between the two ports to charge devices simultaneously. Some devices may not be compatible.
