Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit Launches For $100


If you have been patiently waiting for the launch of the new Goal Zero Switch 8 Portable Recharger, which was unveiled earlier this year, you will be pleased to learn that Goal Zero has now launched their new solar panel and USB batteries for around $100.

The new Goal Zero Switch 8 Portable Recharger has been designed to provide you with extra juice for your mobile devices and tablets while you are away from the grid.

Features of the Switches 8 portable recharger include the ability to link more than one battery together to be charged at the same time from the panel, providing you with even more juice when required.

“It’s not what our products do, but what they empower you to do,” said Joe Atkin, President and CEO of the Utah-based company. “The Switch 8 Recharger is a great example of conveniently giving people the freedom to go anywhere and do anything without worrying about the battery life of their gear.”

The batteries are fitted with a flipper up USB connector at one end, and a USB port at the other, which can be used to charge the batteries from a USB port rather than the solar panel if required. The Switch 8 when used with the portable Nomad 3.5 Solar Panel will charge in around six hours using sunlight, or 4 hours from any USB power source.
