Very bad qualityI used it several times to try to charge my phones. Well it worked well the first time... And then it can't stand the heat of the sun and it is barely able to charge 3% of my phone after 6 hours in the winter sun.
Wouldn't recommend it. It is also very expensive.

Poorly constructedAfter using it a couple of times on a trip it stopped working. Got a replacement which broke down also after just one use. It seems that this panel cannot stand the heat of the sun, the panels actually shift inside the housing when in the hot sun. Also it seems to be very fragile and cannot stand the stress of being in a backpack. Kathmandu has been great in refunding it but depending on this panel when in the bush is not advisable because it could well be that it is not working when you need it. When it is working it is a really nice panel with good output compared to weight but the fact that it's to fragile makes me not wanting to use it again.

Didnt last longI bought this at the end of 2016 in preparation for walking El Camino de Santiago. I used it a little and off and on since but now, just over a year later, it is not charging. It's out of warranty time and I am so disappointed it hasn't been a great long term product.

Good buy portable Solar PanelBrought my Nomad 7 Plus on my South American trip but only able to use it once as I had enough access to plug in power. Used it on a sunny day in Atacama desert, charged my mobile phone with it-- a wee bit slow but otherwise satisfactory. Only owned this for a month so I'm yet to find out more hence the 4 stars.
