What is the best solar charger for backpacking

08-Sep-20
Hard to beat the simple and affordable anker from Wally World. Charges my iPhone XR 4 times.

Goal zero nomad 7 is what I have for extended backpack trips. If it's just a 2 or 3 night trip, I just take an anker or goal zero power pack

I’ve had zero problems with anker battery packs. Can’t imagine a more reliable option for the money/weight/etc. I’m sure others exist I’ve just had no reason to try others.

For what it is worth...on my CO sheep hunt in 2018, the guide had a solar charger. I carried my Anker. When the hunt was over, the guide said he was ditching the solar charger and buying an Anker. On longer remote hunts...(i.e Alaska) I carry two Ankers.

There are plenty of options for Anker chargers. Which one(s) are the best for a week or two trip?

Chief, look up your phone's battery size and you can see what size Ankar to get based on your needs. I have a 10,400mAh Ankar which will charge my Galaxy's 3000mAh battery 3x+.
