Has anyone tried the GoalZero brand solar generator? I heard it was a good value, but Id rather pay for function than name-brand

As far as I know it isn't a generator. It is just a solar collector and a battery backup / power inverter.
Using the word "generator" might confuse some people and lead them to believe that there was actually a gas engine in there - there is not.

I can see where if you had a deer camp this might be a good idea - prolonged time spent outdoors with minimal needs (cell, radio, small TV, LED X-Mas lights around the dining area, etc...). But I'd really like to see it in action (over a weekend) before I plunk down a couple of grand on something that ends up being a sad sack of suck.

How durable is that thing any way?

I started to look at those but they have proprietary fittings and plugs. That automatically disqualifies it in my eyes.
