The Goal Zero Flip 10 recharger is a great way to charge your phone on-the-go. Its tiny size and modern design are great features, but best of all – it’s solar-compatible. With only 3 hours needed to charge via solar or USB, it’s easy to grab on your way out the door in case your phone needs a boost later. With its extremely low price, it’s also a great starter charger for those who are new to solar. We hope this Goal Zero Flip 10 Review will help you see just how useful this power bank is.
This model is specifically designed for phones, but you can also use it for headlamps, cameras, and even tablets. Keep in mind that even with smartphones, this recharger is meant to boost and not fully charge. With a smartphone, you can expect to get a 60-100% boost from a full charge of the Flip 10. It also has the ability to boost your tablet by about 25%. This unit is not compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S8 or with any laptops. Other than that, it will work with anything that requires a USB cable, and the cable is included.
As far as durability is concerned, this recharger doesn’t really tick any boxes. The main point of this model is to have something to stick in your purse or pocket that will help you charge a device in a bind. It doesn’t have any protection as far as rubberized sides or ports, but it’s extremely inexpensive and will work great for its intended use.
