Re: [BackpackingLight] Has anyone hiked with the Goal Zero Switch 8 Solar Recharging Kit? The whole kit is only 90 grams.

Q:What is the total weight of the solar panel + chargercable + switch8 battery? I'm planning on buying it and taking it with me when I go hiking next month and every gram counts in this situation. Thanks!
