Charging slow after, the charging is interruptedI figured out, that, if the PB is charged over my MacBook it is charging fast and the blue LED is blinking also fast. But if you interrupt the charge, for some reason and plug out your Venture, after a reinsert the charging speed is the slowest ever. No way to speed it up. Then a 100% charge can take all the day. No matter if put into a powerful wall charger, nor USB3. No support for this issue from GZ.

Venture 30I bought this in December 2017. It's been rainy and cloudy so no chance to test recharging it with solar panels. I have charged it through the computer. It takes a while to fully charge. However, once charged, it kept my Samsung phone charged. I used my phone down to a 14 percent. It took a long time to charge...like a few hours and the Venture 30 went down to one bar charging it. However, when my phone was at 50 percent and I just plugged it into the Venture 30 and kept it in, it got up to 100 percent and stayed there continuously plugged in over for an 8 hr period. The Venture 30 at the end of an 8 hr period had two bars left. I found this satisfactory.

Cable is junkWithin the first month, the 2.4A and micro connectors came out of the cable and no longer charge the Venture. It is pretty much useless now because it is not able to charge. While it worked great when it was charged, the connectors are not in the cord very well and broke very easily.

not reliablethe built in micro to usb cable quit working relatively quickly (see other peoples comments with similar problem). Also the leds don't act as specified. I never got 5 blue lights blinking at the same time when it is supposedly fully charged even after waiting way longer than the specs say. The reboot process description doesn't match reality in terms of how the light indicate what is going on. I would not recommend this product.

Everything I Needed!Bought this guy for a trip I was taking to Colorado and it worked perfectly for my cell phone, Lighthouse Mini, and Guide 10 Plus (batteries for headlamp). I would seriously recommend this product to anyone looking to take the plunge into Goal Zero solar. The Venture 30 paired with my two Nomad 7s has worked great and has the best balance of stored power and solar charging speed for my needs. The battery level indicator lights and integrated flashlight are super convenient, as well as the 'smart-charge' system that the device uses.

Angry camper from
Needs an overhaul!!This is my second time I'm going to have to return your venture 30 battery pack and solar kit. The problem I had with both now is that the devices would try to charge themselves, while not connected to anything. The cord (USB-to-microUSB) that wraps around the bottom and connects both ends to the device would try to charge itself if both ends of the cords were inserted, and would get very hot and drain the battery rapidly. Neither a soft, nor a full reset would fix the problem. I returned the device got a new one and again the same problem. When a device like this cost 5 times as much as the competition for the same specks, it has to perform flawlessly! But now a second time and I use this when I'm 50 miles on foot in the middle of nowhere really ticks me off when I have to trust this thing. What a disappointment!!!

SolidJust got this along with the New Nomad 14 Plus. So far I love the features of this product. In particular the smart charging function. Be able to set profiles for different electronics is awesome!

Great product! Operates exactly as described.I purchased this as an upgrade for my guide 10 batteries. Love the versatility and ease of use. I have used it multiple times car camping, backpacking and just keep it in my backpack/ car the rest of the time. Works extremely well and I get at least two full charges for my iPhone.
