Goal Zero was founded in 2009 by Robert Workman, some of the company’s first products were solar panels with batteries and LED lights that were given to remote communities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, allowing villagers to have their own source of power and light for the first time.

At the time, the market for small, portable solar panels was minimal – but it showed great promise for growth. Hikers and campers don’t have the option of carrying generators with them, but with the increasing reliance people have on GPS, smartphones, etc there was an ever growing demand for power when in the wilderness.

On the back the Goal Zero Nomad 10 has a built-in kickstand that clicks into place at multiple angles, this allows you to aim the panels directly at the sun for optimal power generation, and to adjust the angles of the panels as the sun slowly moves across the sky.

For obvious reasons this solar panel set is waterproof, so it can be left out in the rain with no issues.
