You will receive an estimated delivery date when placing an order. Estimated delivery is based on your order being placed before 1:00pm MST Monday - Friday.
Our estimated shipping dates are based on several factors, including the destination address, the shipping option you have chosen and if the product you are purchasing is currently in stock. We only ship orders if they are 100% complete unless other arrangements are made. To make other arrangements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

We only ship from our warehouse Monday - Friday. Please take this into account when placing your order.
Is Goal Zero publically traded?
That's a hard one to answer – so much in two words! When there were five of us sitting around a table, dreaming about what we wanted our company culture and mission to be, we kept coming back to our roots of empowering people and taking a risk in a new industry. What came out of these discussions was our mission statements: ZERO apathy – we take risks, we're passionate about what we do and we are brave. ZERO boundaries – we don't take no for an answer. We find solutions and create products that people didn't even know that they needed. ZERO regrets – we work hard and we play hard. GOAL ZERO isn't just a company, it's a business created by people who live life to its fullest, with a shared vision inspired by the passion for adventure, respect for the planet and a humanitarian heart. We're a company that equips families and individuals seeking to improve the outdoor experience with the most innovative portable power products on the market. Field-proven in some of the most remote places on earth, we are working to continually deliver smart, innovative power solutions that will change the way you adventure.

What is the life span of the batteries and panels?
I'll answer that question with a question: how durable is Chuck Norris? No, but seriously, our products are designed to be your hero. We've designed the panels and power packs to be rugged and weather resistant. Our products are sent around the world to be tested in a variety of temperatures, elevation and humidity levels. We really wanted to say that the solar panel is water-proof, since we've seen the panels work while they are under water. But since we can't guarantee that outcome 100% of the time, we say they are weather-resistant. The panels do fine in the elements, from rainy season in Congo to snowstorms in Everest. The panels can be scratched up, run over, left in the rain, and they'll still charge up your gear. The power packs are also water-resistant, but should not be submerged in water, in order to prevent rust in the junction box. The Venture 30 has an IPX rating of 6 which means you can dunk it, spray it, use it in the rain with no rubber plugs needed it is our most weatherproof of all the power packs.
We put our gear through the test in a series of videos. Check out Power Wars
