A lightweight solution for on-the-go power from the sun, the Nomad 5 features 5 Watts of monocrystalline laminate in a rugged enclosure with an easy-to-use kickstand USB output and built-in Flip Power Bank dock

Nomad 5 Highlights

  • 5-Watt panel gives you the solar collecting capability needed to charge your phone anywhere the sun shines.
  • Built-in kickstand clicks into place at multiple angles, so you can easily position your panel for optimal solar collection.
  • Rugged and durable, built to last as long as your adventures do.

What can the Nomad 5 charge?

Solar panels do not hold a charge, they produce power when exposed to sunlight. For the best charging experience, pair with a Flip 12 power bank to keep devices charged on the go. Simply plug the Flip into the panel's built-in charging dock to charge the battery from sun while hiking, biking, or on the move. Then, use the Flip to charge your phone when the sun goes down. The Nomad 5 is great for charging things like:

Headlamps
Phones
Other smaller USB devices
Goal Zero Power Banks

What's the difference between the Nomads and other solar panels?

Nomads are the most portable solar panel option. They’re extremely packable and are significantly lighter weight than their Boulder counterparts. Our Nomad line spans from 5W to 200W, and includes our small Nomad Solar Chargers designed for backpacking all the way up to our large Nomad Solar Panels made for rigging up alongside your RV.

Are the Nomad Solar Panels waterproof?

Yes. The Nomads are able to withstand the elements, but the larger Nomad panels are housed within a protective fabric enclosure that will wear faster if left outside permanently, unlike the Boulders. What you’re recharging from the Nomads is what needs to stay dry, so keep those power banks and power stations covered up and protected from the dust, rain, and snow.

Can I chain my Nomads?

The Nomad 5 and Nomad 10 solar panels are not chainable. The Nomad 20 and 50 can be chained using the 8mm chaining input port on the back of the panel up to 150W. When chaining Nomad 50s (over 150W) or Nomad 100s we recommend using the 8mm to HPP Combiner Cable. To chain multiple Nomad Solar Panels together with HPP connections, you’ll need to purchase the 4x High Power Port Combiner to High Power Port Connector (SKU 98061) from Goal Zero.
