Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my power bank or power station hold a full charge if unused?
If unused, power banks and power stations are typically capable of holding a full charge for 12-14 months. However, we highly recommend using and charging the battery every 3-4 months for a healthy lifespan and storing your power bank or power station plugged into the wall or solar panel if possible.
Are the Nomad Solar Panels waterproof?
Yes. The Nomads are able to withstand the elements, but the larger Nomad panels are housed within a protective fabric enclosure that will wear faster if left outside permanently, unlike the Boulders. What you’re recharging from the Nomads is what needs to stay dry, so keep those power banks and power stations covered up and protected from the dust, rain, and snow.
Can I chain my Nomads?
The Nomad 5 and Nomad 10 solar panels are not chainable. The Nomad 20 and 50 can be chained using the 8mm chaining input port on the back of the panel up to 150W. When chaining Nomad 50s (over 150W) or Nomad 100s we recommend using the 8mm to HPP Combiner Cable.
To chain multiple Nomad Solar Panels together with HPP connections, you’ll need to purchase the 4x High Power Port Combiner to High Power Port Connector (SKU 98061) from Goal Zero.
