I purchased this 200W Solar Blanket because of how small, lightweight and portable it is, it easily stows away in my back seat or trunk and is the same size as my laptop. I could not be happier with how it performs, I was considering 2 Goal Zero Nomad 100’s for the same price which are bulkier and heavier and after testing side by side, GZ not as efficient and did not offer the cables I needed for my exact needs. This 200W Solar Blanket quickly charges my vehicle battery, Yeti 400, fridge/freezer, laptop, cell phone and camera equipment for when I am on the road.
I purchased this 120W Solar Blanket being it offered the best balance between efficiency and weight/space savings and as an artist I need to be able to take photos in remote/unique locations and sometimes need to be packed and ready to go quickly. I could not be happier it keeps my vehicle battery and Yeti 400 topped up as well as all of my camera gear and DJI Mavic Pro charged quickly, it is easy to set up and is lightweight at only 7.9lbs, which is a bonus and it is so easy to position in so many ways with the well thought out grommets and load bearing aircraft grade aluminum carabiners.
I purchased the 28W Mini Solar Panel being I needed something lightweight/durable/waterproof for hiking into remote locations to take photos. It does the job and then some, the high-speed USB charging ports charge my camera gear my controller and phone so I can use my DJI Mavic Pro for aerial shots. It is lighter, smaller and more durable plus truly waterproof when compared with the Goal Zero Nomad 28 panel, I use it on the dash to charge my iPhone, and it charges quicker than the USB ports in my vehicle.
