CES 2015: Hands-On: Goal Zero Venture 30 Recharger

Goal Zero, recently acquired by NRG Energy, is one of the industry leaders for renewable and reliable solar power. They announced 4 new products at this CES; Venture 30, Flip 10 & 20 and Light-A-Life 350, and we managed to get some hands-on time with the Venture 30.

The Goal Zero Venture 30 Recharger has a 7,800 mAh capacity. Goal Zero claims that it will charged up in 4 hours using USB. And since the Venture 30 Recharger is solar-ready, users can easily plug it into a Nomad 7 and get a full charge in 9 hours of full sun.


With a built-in micro-USB tip, users will no longer have to worry about carrying a micro-USB cable. And setting this device apart is its smart sensing technology. Holding down the battery indicator button will enable the recharger to cycle through all different amp to ensure it uses the best amp to charge user’s devices. And with dual 2.4A USB ports, users will be able to get the fastest charge possible, regardless of which port is being used.


The Venture 30 Recharger is also IPX6 certified, which means it is protected against heavy splashing and rain with no rubber plugs needed. It also has a 65 lumen white LED to help users navigate in dark environments.

The Venture 30 Recharger will cost $99.99 and it is expected to be available Q1 of this year. We’ll be doing a full review as soon as we manage to get our hands on one.
