Battery Charge Times

Before you charge or power a device, such as a smartphone, laptop or fridge, you first need to accumulate power in a battery. This stored battery power is then used to charge or power your device(s).

As each solar panel and recharger varies in size, we put together a running time and charge time table on all of our product pages so you can gain a full understanding of what products are capable to handle your charging needs. However if you want the Goal Zero 101, the simplest way to assess your needs that small recharges charge small devices such as phones and GoPros and then the bigger the recharger and panel gets, the large the devices it can handle such as laptops and fridges.

Below we’ve compiled a table of  Goal Zero battery/recharger takes to recharge from various solar panels, USB and wall. This allows you to mix-and-match rechargers and solar panels to provide customised power solutions.

If you are still a little confused about which Goal Zero products best match your charging needs then we recommend you read the Collect, Store and Use page or contact our tech team to speak 1-on-1 with our highly trained staff and have your questions answered.

*Please note that product recharge times will vary depending on various elements including panel angle, sun quality and cloud coverage. These times are to be used as a guide.
