Goal Zero debuts Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit

Goal Zero has released its latest portable, solar-powered device, the Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit. We’ve had experience with other products out of Goal Zero and really found them to be really great stuff. The pocket-sized kit gets its juice from the sun (like Superman!) and can charge a smartphone in 3 hours. Of course, you can also charge up a tablet, MP3 player, or something with a fruit on it, too.

The Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit can bring back a dead smartphone instantly and replenish your battery in less than three hours. After utilizing all eight watts of lithium-ion battery power, recharge the Switch 8 on the go with the portable Nomad 3.5 Solar Panel in about six hours or from any USB source in less than four hours. And all of this power is wrapped into an ultra-lightweight, durable aluminum package that’s smaller than a roll of quarters.

The Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit is currently available for $99.95 through REI.com and REI stores.
