I'm rough on my gear, really rough and the Boulder 30 has handled the test. I used this for 104 days straight on a 4,700 mile cycling tour across the USA. I had it strapped onto my trailer and let it charge up the Sherpa 50 while I was riding and on my off days in urban environments and at campgrounds. The most amazing thing is the fact that it still worked after the dozens of times I dropped it. Of course it soaked up the sun too. In my journey, Off the Grid Across America, I vowed to use solely electricity from my solar panels and Goal Zero made it happen. A few times I ran into a few days of heavy rain but I only plugged into 5 outlets the entire journey and never had to turn on a light switch. The Boulder 30 along with the Sherpa 50 kept my Macbook Air charged to keep me in touch with the outside world and give me plenty of time to blog about the trip. I couldn't have done this journey without this gear. Durable, dependable, and versatile are a few words to describe it.

Performs well - two panels connected to a yeti 400 showed 8-50 watts on a partly sunny day. Wattage went up and down as the clouds obscured and cleared the sun as any solar panel will. The severely annoying part - 1. You can get higher producing solar panels for less money 2. Seriously, why isn't there a standard connector? Why do I have to buy or ask for a converter cable to use this with Goal Zero's own products? If this is a sign of how this company is run, they're not long for this world. Such a simple design mistake. 3. Build quality, while the panels have a rugged feel to them, the boulder clip system is awful. Oh and the clips don't come with these panels either. Sliding the clips into the frame is hit or miss. The clips can be a nightmare to insert, one clip fell apart in my hand - the metal actually split.

This is a very good solar panel!

By Chicago Dave

from Northbrook, IL, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

I have four of these panels on a tripod in my back yard here in Illinois, where the sum can get very bright under the right conditions. What I do is power a Yeti 400 in my garage and then charge up all sorts of portable Goal Zero batteries. Then I take the portables in my house and keep a second Yeti 400 powering a AeroGarden LED system that grows lettuce. Why not?

Love it except for the glued on electrical box. The glue tends to fail then the box falls off and the wires break

I recommend Goal Zero for your solar camping needs . Mb God Bless

Works fantastic

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

We purchased the Boulder Solar Panel to recharge a Goal Zero battery that we use off grid to power a CPAP at nights. The solar panel does an awesome job of recharging the battery.

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

My parents live in Africa because they are missionaries. I bought 6 boulder 30 panels for the generator they already had and they couldn't be happier. They were able to fully charge the generator to power lights, laptops, and refrigerators. Great products!

barely charging

By Off the Grid

from Gallina, NM, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

I have 4 Boulder 30 Solar panels chained together to charge my Yeti 1250. There is not a cloud in the sky and they are angled towards the sun. I am only getting 59 watts. Is that what I should expect?

Boulder 30 Solar Panel

By hagar

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

These panels charge very well in direct sunlight and less so on cloudy days but with no large drain on the Yeti 1250, all wattage collected is stored successfully

Works great; very portable and durable

By ADB55

from St. Charles, IL, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel:

I own a Yeti 1250 and 3 Boulder 30 panels. During an 11,000 mile cross country camping trip we were able to dry camp for 6-7 days at time, keep our trailer batteries charged, and I was able to power my wife's AC medical equipment twice a day w/o ever hooking up to the grid. We also used it to power an Engel 42 qt AC/DC electric cooler/freezer. We no longer did we have to buy 20 lb bags of ice every 3 days, and our wine, beer and water stayed nice and cold. When at home the panels are set up outside the garage, and with an extension cable the Yeti and Engel sit inside keeping our beer at 40degrees all summer long without any grid power. From hot sun we get cold beer to share with our friends.
