Product Description

Available from Kathmandu and Macpac stores around Australia

Re-engineered to be lighter and smarter, the Nomad 7 Plus Solar Panel has the innovative technology to charge USB devices directly from the sun.

The Nomad 7 Plus features an auto restart that’s smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, it knows the difference between a device that has reached a fully charged state and one that disconnects due to environmental causes, i.e. lack of sunlight, shadow, solar eclipse, etc. When the latter is detected, it automatically reconnects the charging device, no extra work on your part is needed.

Detachable kickstand provides optimum angle placement, natural shade for charging devices and a vented pocket for temperature regulation. Weatherproof layering easily sloughs rain and snow.

Several key components work together to ensure you have the best solar charging experience, including the Solar Intensity Indicator. These 4 LED lights are indicative of current solar conditions and give you an idea of how well your gear will charge.

HOW IT WORKS

Charging phones, batteries and other USB-powered devices from the Nomad 7 Plus is as easy as plugging in. Open the Nomad 7 Plus and face the panel toward the sun and check the Solar Intensity Indicator for current solar conditions. 2 or more lights, you’re good to go. Then plug in your phone or recharger into the junction box and charge up.

All the cables you need to recharge Power Packs are included in the back of the Nomad 7 Plus. The same cable can be used to chain the Nomad 7 Plus with other chainable Nomad Plus and Nomad Solar Panels.

JUNCTION BOX + SOLAR INTENSITY INDICATOR

This is where the brains of the Nomad 7 Plus live. Several key components work together to ensure you have the best solar charging experience, including the Solar Intensity Indicator. These 4 LED lights are indicative of current solar conditions and give you an idea of how well your gear will charge.

Once you plug into the Nomad 7 Plus, the lights will blink in accordance with how fast your gear is charging. Think you should be seeing more lights? Try re-positioning the Nomad 7 Plus toward the sun and watch how the lights and speed of charge indicator change. The best charging scenario for phones and other USB-powered devices is 2 or more lights.

AUTO RESTART

The Nomad 7 Plus features an auto restart that’s smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, the Nomad 7 Plus knows the difference between a device that has reached a fully charged state and one that disconnects due to environmental causes (i.e., lack of sunlight, shadow, solar eclipse, etc). When the latter is detected, the Nomad 7 Plus will automatically reconnect the charging device, no extra work on your part is needed.

KICKSTAND

The Nomad 7 Plus’s detachable kickstand allows you to be as lightweight as you need to be. Leave it attached with the magnets and it pops out to an optimal angle for positioning toward the sun. It also provides natural shade and a vented pocket for devices you have plugged in.

CHAINING

Chaining panels is a great way to collect more power from the sun and recharge devices quicker. You can chain up to 150W of solar panels together; however we don’t recommend more than four in a chain since there will be loss of voltage over a long distance. The farther the power has to travel through cables, from panel to panel, the more power you will lose.
