Rugged, well thought-out, compact for the power
Our team used a Sherpa 50 system during a 30-day paddling drip for a documentary film last year and it was great. On a recent 8-day kayak trip for a magazine shoot, I decided to buy my own Sherpa 100 system (so I could power my Macbook Pro Retina 15") and it worked brilliantly, in the rain, mud and sand. The whole team was psyched to have reliable power. I'd like to see a simple case/bag setup for the battery to use while charging in adverse weather or, say on top of a kayak where splashing could occur.

Awesome - Worked great!
I bought this product for off grid kayak/camping trip. The Sherpa 100 was delivered fully charged. I did some test charges at the house with 3x cell phones, some rechargeable Ni-cad batteries 4x ea AAA and AA for my cameras, a Go-Pro and rechargeable video camera. It could charge the lot which seemed very rapidly but actual time was normal charge time. I tested the Solar Panels to ensure they were charging the power pack and then topped off the unit via the wall socket. The primary key is charge the unit to max via the wall socket then use the solar panels as needed to top off the unit. The trip was 6 days kayaking/camping off grid in Quebec's Sagueney Fjord from Sagueney to Toudassac. The weather was not the most desirable - 4 days of mostly cloudy, rain and the occasional heavy to torrential passing thunderstorm. Not the best weather for the use of a solar power recharging device. I normally was still able to get 1-3hrs of late afternoon to evening sun. I was able to keep 10 cell phones, 6x Ni-cad batteries (4x AA and 2x AAA), a Mofi charger, a sony camera battery and the video camera operational throughout the entire trip. The Sherpa drained down to 30% at one point but the next day we got lucky with a bright sunny day and quick paddle to the next site. I was able to take advantage of 8-9 hrs of great sunlight and charged every device to 100% and the at the end of the day the Sherpa was back up to 80-90% charge as well. A major key was to make sure the panels got a good angle to the sunlight. I have used the device twice since then to charge my phone and camera on the fly while hiking. The panels can usually top the unit off from 20% to 100% in about 7hrs. If the Sherpa fell below the 20% threshold I have noted that it requires a bit longer usually 9-10hrs to top the unit back up. I would recommend just making sure to charge prior to falling below 20%. The wall outlet seems to charge the unit within 3-4hrs to max no matter how low the battery state is at. I found the unit to be very easy to use, lightweight (under 5lbs.), and very capable of keeping multiple items operational. I had planed to use my laptop to download pics each night but limited space in the kayak forced me to not test the capability of the Sherpa handling my laptop in a limited use capacity as well. I took extra precautions of multiple dry bags to protect the Sherpa 100 unit while in transit in the kayak. I also use the dry bag while backpacking as well. Overall I love the unit and the price was very reasonable for what is provided. I am thinking of adding another panel set to my current system just to aide in recharge time. Highly recommend the product - great item to have for multiple needs and back up power in the event of an emergency.

    Cpap operation
    I use the this to go backpacking. This unit will run my cpap for about 8.5 hours. (no humidity) I bought an extra Nomad 20 to charge the unit faster during the day. It is also nice to have at home to run your cpap in case of a power outage.

      will be my only power for 10 days
      The unit holds a lot of power, the panels recharge it very quickly. I'm taking the system to Fiji, to a remote island, eco resort, that has very little power available , this unit will be used to charge my Iphone, my Mac Book, several camera batteries including Go Pro cameras, and a dive light and will also be using the USB light attachment at night to get around.

      good power source
      I have been using it as my main power source in West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer for a year. 10 months of constant sun but during 2 months of rain it was difficult to keep panels dry ( should be constructed more water resistant/proof?) Dependable source for charging iPhone, laptop and fairly quickly recharged when current is accessable . "the brick" as it is called due to its weight holds good charge.

          Out of this world kit
          I've been buying goal zero products for years. From the guide 10 plus , all the way up to the yeti 400. My favorite , however, is the sherpa 100 kit with the nomad 20 solar panel and inverter. Super portable and versatile. Powers everything I need powered. The sherpa 100 is packed with features for everything I need powered. It has two super fast USB ports and other handy ports for charging pretty much anything in my kit. I take it everywhere I go. Super high quality and very reliable . It's always a good idea to have portable power when you need it wherever you go because you never know when you may need it. Like I said, I have almost every product goal zero has ever made but the Sherpa 100 solar power kit is by far my favorite. I love goal zero!

            Super great!
            Easy to use and setup. Pretty reliable power generation, but I will likely add another solar panel. I like their cable and hookup options except the lack of Apple laptop support( otherwise 5 stars) . I found a competitor that offers a cable and was able to buy and use theirs successfully. I will buy the yeti 400 next and keep buying panels and then I will get that yeti 1250.

            Working Remote
            We run a company that provides technology for sporting events. We send iPads all over the race course and often there is no power. The Sherpa 100 and Nomad solar panels provide the power our clients need to use our technology all day long.

              Light, small, versatile and powerful. If you need to go off the grid or are caught away from power sources on a regular basis, the Sherpa 100 Solar Kit is for you. Keep it charged up and in my trunk, all the time. Never know what is ahead.
