Quick Overview

Goal Zero Nomad 28W Plus Solar Panel, 1 Year Warranty

Product Description

Goal Zero Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panel, 1 Year Warranty. A 28-Watt panel re-engineered to be lighter and smarter, the Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panel has the innovative technology to charge USB devices directly from the sun. Detachable kickstand for modularity and power-flow indicator ensure the best solar charging experience. Larger footprint allows for quicker charging for the Yeti and Sherpa power packs.

How It Works:

Charging phones, batteries and other USB-powered devices from the Nomad 28 Plus is as easy as plugging in. Open the Nomad 28 Plus and face the panel toward the sun and check the Solar Intensity Indicator for current solar conditions. 2 or more lights, you're good to go. Then plug in your phone or recharger into the junction box and charge up. All the cables you need to recharge Sherpa Power Packs and Goal Zero Yeti Portable Power Stations are included in the back of the Nomad 28 Plus. The same cable can be used to chain the Nomad 28 Plus with other chainable Nomad Plus and Nomad Solar Panels.


Smart Charging for Phones and Tablets:

Features a dynamic auto-restart and smart electronics to charge phones, tablets and other USB-powered gear directly from the sun, even in cloudy conditions. 

Solar Intensity Indicator + Junction Box:

Take the guesswork out of charging from the sun. Easy-to-read LED indicator display strength of solar conditions and provides immediate feedback on the speed of charging. This is where the brains of the Nomad 28 Plus live. Several key components work together to ensure you have the best solar charging experience, including the Solar Intensity Indicator. These 4 LED lights are indicative of current solar conditions and give you an idea of how well your gear will charge. Once you plug into the Nomad 28 Plus, the lights will blink in accordance with how fast your gear is charging. Think you should be seeing more lights? Try re-positioning the Nomad 28 Plus toward the sun and watch how the lights and speed of charge indicator change. The best charging scenario for phones and other USB-powered devices is 2 or more lights.

Waterproof and Modular Rugged: 

Waterproof construction means power without worry. Removable kickstand provides optimum angle placement toward the sun.

Auto Restart:

The Nomad 28 Plus features an auto restart that’s smarter than anything else on the market. With the ability to track power flow history, the Nomad 28 Plus knows the difference between a device that has reached a fully charged state and one that disconnects due to environmental causes, i.e. lack of sunlight, shadow, etc. When the latter is detected, the Nomad 28 Plus will automatically reconnect the charging device, no extra work on your part is needed.


The Nomad 28 Plus's detachable kickstand allows you to be as lightweight as you need to be. Leave it attached with the magnets and it pops out to an optimal angle for positioning toward the sun. It also provides natural shade and a vented pocket for devices you have plugged in.


Chaining panels is a great way to collect more power from the sun and recharge devices quicker. You can chain up to 150W of solar panels together, that would be about five Nomad 28 Plus Solar Panels; however we don't recommend more than four in a chain since there will be loss of voltage over a long distance. The farther the power has to travel through cables, from panel to panel, the more power you will lose.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Is the Nomad 14/ Nomad 28 Plus waterproof?

    Yes. Goal Zero have gone to great lengths to ruggedize the Nomad 14 Plus and Nomad 28 Plus; including beefing up the manufacturing process with advanced lamination techniques so it’ll slough off rain and snow. However, if the junction box gets soaking wet, Goal Zero recommend letting it dry out before plugging in.

  • Q:How does the Solar Intensity Indicator work?

    While Goal Zero doesn't give away all their secrets, what we do know is that part of the electronics includes an advanced current sensor (way better than a voltmeter) and unique maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller to optimize the USB output. What you need to know is when conditions are right, you can plug a phone into your product and charge it directly from the sun. You’ll know the conditions are right by checking out the Solar Intensity Indicator.

  • Q:Does the Nomad 7/ Nomad 14/ Nomad 28 Plus have a built-in battery?

    No they do not. Goal Zero made the Nomad 7/ Nomad 14/ Nomad 28 Plus to be as modular and light-weight as possible, that meant selling batteries as an optional accessory. You can either plug your phone or device directly into the Nomad 7/ Nomad 14/ Nomad 28 Plus or pair it with one of their rechargers to store power for later (like at night or when you go inside).

  • Q:What’s the difference between Mono & Polycrystalline solar cells?

    There's actually not a whole lot of difference when it comes to Caravan, RV and Camping applications to be honest. They are different cell types and are more relevant for home grid tied roof top.

    You will read that poly are better in low light conditions and mono are more efficient. But for roof top caravan's the difference is negligible.

    The most important thing is to get a well-constructed roof top panel from a quality brand and get the right sizing for your application.
