I use my iPhone for maps and GPS. Going into the backcountry this fall and thinking a solar charger would be the ticket. Anybody got one/use one they like?

I have a nomad 7 but I have a 22000 batt pack. I will only take the panel for really long trips or if a second person person is coming allowing us to share some gear(stove...).

I have heard good things about these, and they are made in the US.

I just grabbed a batter pack to charge my phone. I got an anker, but don't remember exactly which one. It will recharge a phone 6 times supposedly. Charged my phone and a buddies 4 times last year without it running out so can't be far off.

I have an Anker solar pad and an Anker power core. Between the two, you can charge a phone multiple times and any additional electronic devices.

I've been extremely happy with the Anker equipment.

I ordered and received an Anker battery and solar charger and am looking forward to it. Less than $100 for both and shipped to my door.
