Compare to Nomad 7
The Nomad 7 and Nomad 7+ are similar devices but there are some differences. I selected the Nomad 7+ due to its smaller size, added durability, and the panel is slightly more efficient. Here are some differences between the two solar panels:
- Nomad 7 has DC (cigarette lighter format), USB, USB mini, and mini round for Guide 10
- Nomad 7+ has USB mini, and mini round for Guide 10
- The Nomad 7 does not charge some iPhones that need constant and even power and the 7+ does a better job charging these devices.
- The Nomad 7 can be daisy-chained and the 7+ cannot.
As part of your power kit I recommend at least two sets of rechargeable NiMH batteries, two sets of alkaline or lithium disposable batteries, a Nomad 7+, and a Guide 10 charger. The Nomad 7+ includes a pouch for storing cables. The 7+ includes a standard USB plug and mini USB adapter. I recommend adding a micro USB adapter (very generic connector) and any other cables or adapters required by your devices.
