barely charging

By Off the Grid

from Gallina, NM, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

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?

Very adequate equipment...

By SlowSteve

from Tennessee, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

I have had the opportunity to use this cool, little solar charger on several occasions when traveling in El Salvador. I am able to charge my phone, charge / power my GZ Rock Out and also charge my Guide 10 quad AA battery set. Compact size, easy of storage and durable construction, all contribute to the value of this unit.

Tough!

By Marty G

from Wise, VA, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

I have pampered my nomad 7 thinking it would be fragile. Getting ready for a camping trip this weekend It fell off the tailgate. I backed over it with the front and rear tire of my fullsize Chevy truck. Had to bend the usb port back straight but it works like a charm I am impressed with the Quality!!!!!!!!!!

Great to have

By Chela

from Tucson, AZ, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

I bought my Goal Zero Yeti 150 a month ago and I love it. I use it everyday to charge my iphone and ipad. At night, I run a 2.5w fan to keep me cool when I sleep. Can't wait to go camping with it. This is a must have item for any solar lover. GV#11

Nice little panel

By Gabe S

from Derry, NH, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

I got mine with the intent of charging up phones directly on our island adventures, i had a second thought the Nomad 20 and yeti 150 came on sale as a camping pack so I bought those and chained this into the Nomad 20 for an extra little boost. Only complaint I have is I wish the chaining cable was at least 2 feet long as tying the two panels together and then getting them to a good angle on the sun was a wee bit difficult. But overall nice little panel worked well with my phone when I did use it directly and worked to give an extra bump to the Nomad 20 when charging my Yeti 150 Thank You Goal Zero

Worked as expected Very easy to use!

By Gabe S

from Derry, NH, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

I bought this a month ago for a trip to the our island. It worked great! It recharged, my phone, her phone, and our Lighthouse 250 60% solid mark. I charged the Yeti up the next day with overcast skies to partly cloudy skies using my Nomad 7 and Nomad 20 chained together it Recharged it to 100% solid in a little over 5 hours I was very VERY impressed. Now fast fwd to the next day. We charged both phones the Lighthouse 250 and the iPad I have which was down only to 75% or so.. Next morning was VERY sunny not a cloud in the sky. Now here is my confusion It was down to 40% and 4 hours of Better Sun conditions yieded seemingly very little change in charge state the Yeti charged only to show 60% blining when charging and 60% solid when not charging but Does it seem odd to only grab less than 20% when having better sun? I will charge it up fully tonight and see how it acts. But overall I cannot complain We did use it harder the second day, I do love the product as it worked for us well. I just hope I dont have a bad battery or something after one use, I will look back on this review in September we will be out there for 3 nights and 4 days. That will obviously be a better test on how it holds up and performs. I am thinking of getting a 100W panel to hook to it to charge also. Please note I chose Pricey as it is a little bit But poor value No Its a nice little package that is put together well and as long as It comes around for me its a good unit for what we need

T.V. capacity

Doesn't say so in the specs but it also runs your TV. Ran my 15inch LCD for about 8 hours on a full charge.

Awesome Portable Go-To Daily Use Generator

By sourpatchadults

from Pasadena, CA, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

This is an impeccable source of power. While not just super convenient and valuable on camping trips for charging phones, lights, etc, this highly reliable and easily chargeable generator is a great balance between price and power and portability even from daily use around the house further prolonging its shelf life. Using a few pairs of Boulder 15's clipped and chained together that I leave conveniently on my balcony I'm able to charge and use for a variety of devices, laptops, and small appliances to help conserve on power throughout the week. Highly recommended!

Yeti 150 works great!

By JacoBobo

from Albuquerque, NM, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

Used my Yeti 150 camping for the first time last weekend, paired with 4 Boulder 15 panels mounted on a GZ tripod. We charged 3 phones, Rockout 2 speaker and some other miscellaneous things. At one point, the Yeti was down to 20% by the morning, but having 60 watts worth of panels charged it back to full in just a few hours, very impressive. This is my first experience using solar to camp with (we have a popup camper but rarely camp anywhere we can plug in) and I'm a convert. I own a # of GZ products and love them all. Living in NM, solar is no brainer and GZ makes it very easy to get off the grid while camping.

Boulder 30 Solar Panel

By hagar

from Twin Falls, ID, United States

Comments about Goal Zero Boulder 30m:

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
