Goal Zero Switch 10: Thoughts from an Engineer

Goal Zero Switch 10: Thoughts from an Engineer

The Switch 10 USB Multi-Tool was introduced last month and is now starting to make its way into retail locations nationwide. We took a few minutes to sit down with our engineering team to talk about what went into the creation of the Switch 10. We’re proud of this group of computer-programming, CAD-drawing, circuit board-soldering, 3D-modeling, electrical sorcerers that we get to call our product developers. They are the dreamers behind our products and are a crucial part of the Goal Zero family.

    I hope that this is eventually offered by itself with the accessories. I already have a Nomad 7 solar panel system and don’t need another.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    You know, I’ve always wondered why flashlights didn’t come with glow in the dark cases or portions of the handle or something. After all, you’re reaching for a flashlight because there’s no light, right? Maybe the next version should come with a glow in the dark portion of the plastic case.

    I picked up a couple of the switch 8 flashlights and they came with a lantern type accessorie on the opposite end of the flashlight . I have several friends interested in this connection but have never seen it for sale since. Is it discontinued? If not I was thinking it would be great to have a ” lampshade” type of connection to slide on that end to keep the light out of your eyes while being used on a table ,, or to be used hanging above .

    I was wondering how long with the fan will run on a full charge of the Switch 10

    So bummed I recently had my Switch 10 confiscated by security while flying through Beijing. Because the capacity & output are not printed on the outside of the unit, it wasn’t allowed to fly in my carry on bag! So bummed, since I already have the solar panel & flashlight that go with it.

    I really dig the Switch 10 USB multi-tool. It’s a great accessory for me to carry around for business.
