Ruggedly Efficient Eco Chargers

The Goal Zero 'Nomad 7 Plus' Mobile Solar Panel Offers Convenience

— April 1, 2016 — Eco
Solar panels are no doubt the way of the future, so the Goal Zero 'Nomad 7 Plus' mobile solar panel is designed with smart features to make it future-ready. Rather than simply absorbing rays in a sort of catch-all way, the Goal Zero 'Nomad 7 Plus' works by sensing the level of solar intensity being absorbed. If the level is too low, the unit will pause until sunshine has resumed. Once it has, the product will resume charging without having to unplug and replug in the device.

The Goal Zero 'Nomad 7 Plus' features a detachable kickstand to make finding the optimal spot for harnessing the power of the sun much more intuitive. The mobile solar panel features a rear section in the kickstand for holding devices and accessories to store everything together.
Trend Themes
1. Smart Solar Panels - There is an opportunity to develop solar panels with smart features that can sense and adjust to solar intensity levels.
2. Optimized Charging - There is potential to optimize charging for mobile devices with solar panels that can pause and resume charging based on available sunlight.
3. Detachable Kickstands - The use of detachable kickstands in solar panels can make finding the optimal spot for harnessing the power of the sun more intuitive.
Industry Implications
1. Renewable Energy - The renewable energy industry can take advantage of smart solar panels and optimized charging to increase efficiency and convenience.
2. Mobile Devices - The mobile device industry can benefit from the development of solar panels that can pause and resume charging based on available sunlight for more convenient and eco-friendly charging options.
3. Outdoor Recreation - The outdoor recreation industry can explore the use of detachable kickstands in solar panels to provide consumers with more intuitive ways to power their outdoor gear.
