Ceiba’s Got Solar!

You’re packing for your two-week boating adventure in the Grand Canyon and there is one question that keeps coming up; how many?  How many socks?  How many t-shirts?  How many beers? How many different colors of toenail paint?  How many batteries?  The list goes on and here at Ceiba Adventures we are always trying to shorten your lists.  So we got to thinking about the battery question, did some research and are now proud to announce that we are offering Goal Zero solar chargers.

The charger system that we are offering, the Nomad 7 with the Guide 10 Pro power pack, can solve all of your battery needs on the river.  No more worrying about bringing a dozen camera batteries just to be sure you don’t run out the day before Lava or rationing your ipod time so you know you’ll have some juice left for rowing the flat water in the lower canyon, Ceiba has got you covered with Goal Zero solar chargers.

The Nomad 7 can charge anything with either a USB or mini-USB charging port, all you need to bring is your device and a charging wire to connect it to the power pack.  This charger is simple to use and is an inexpensive and convenient addition to any river trip with ipods, cameras, go-pros, or GPS devices’ in tow.  For serious photographers, this is a must in Grand Canyon, with the charger you can rely on unlimited shooting time.

The Goal Zero charger is not only limited to small USB devices either.  Bring your own rechargeable batteries from home (AA or AAA standard NiMH batteries) and charge them during your trip like you would on a wall charger.  So how many spare batteries will you have to bring for your headlamp, camera, toothbrush, and ipod?  NONE!!!

Ceiba’s solar charger works just like homeowner solar panels.  The panels don’t directly provide power to your device; they charge a battery pack from which you could charge your devices anytime; day or night, rain or shine.  The battery pack takes between 3 and 6 hours to fully charge (luckily that time frame is largely dependent on quality sunshine, something Grand Canyon has no shortage of!).  Once charged the battery pack will provide 3 full ipod charges or 2 full smartphone charges, with similar results for similar devices.

Not only can you charge your devices whenever you need to on the river, but with the solar charger provided by Ceiba Adventures, two devices can charge at once!  No need to worry about group dynamics fracturing over charge-envy!

Make sure when planning your next Grand Canyon river adventure with Ceiba Adventures to ask about the solar chargers, you will be happy you did and so will your group members who forgot all their batteries at home!
