From Smartphones to Cameras, Guide 10 Adventure Kit Offers Broad Portable Energy Functionality
LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2011 – GOAL ZERO, an innovator of portable solar power systems, today introduced the GOAL ZERO Guide 10 rechargeable power pack and Guide 10 Adventure Kit, delivering its most cost-effective, compact and lightweight solar energy system to date.
Consisting of four AA rechargeable batteries, a USB output port, and an LED flashlight, the GOAL ZERO Guide 10 power pack is designed to work in conjunction with the 7-watt mono-crystalline solar panels of the GOAL ZERO Nomad 7M. Together, they create the Guide 10 Adventure Kit, which completely charges in four hours of full sunlight and delivers portable power to a variety of USB and DC devices.
“As the market for portable handheld devices such as smartphones, tablets and cameras continues to explode, consumers are developing an ever-growing reliance on these devices and want to stay connected, no matter where they are,” said Joe Atkin, CEO of GOAL ZERO.
“The Guide 10 Adventure Kit addresses this need through the combination of a compact rechargeable power pack and a foldable solar panel kit, allowing consumers to power their devices anywhere and at anytime.”
Created for broad functionality, the Guide 10 Adventure Kit (fully charged) delivers 30 hours of power for a cell phone, 7-10 hours for a smart phone, as well as 40 hours for an iPod. The Guide 10 power pack can be charged either from the Nomad 7M’s solar panels or from a laptop via USB connection.
The Guide 10 will be available both as a single unit power pack ($39.99) and as part of the Guide 10 Adventure Kit ($139.95) at major retailers such as REI, Eastern Mountain Sports, Bass Pro and Cabela’s in March 2011.
