Looking for an off-the-grid solution for keeping your doo-dads and whatnots charged? Then my Globe & Mail review of Goal Zero’s Sherpa 50 Solar Charging Kit will be right up your alley.
I dig Goal Zero’s battery packs. I have a few of them. Actually, I think it’s safe to say I have a Goal Zero battery problem. Living in an earthquake and tsunami zone, I tend to stock up on everything and anything I feel I might need to survive whatever the Hell is going to happen to me. Does that make me paranoid? Maybe. But when the shit goes down and I’m still able to charge my smartphone and watch a The China Syndrome on my iPad, all of the scorn and ridicule I’ve eaten over the years will have been worth it.
Anyway, here’s the review. It’s a great piece of kit.
