Our take on the Goal Zero Boulder 30 Solar Panel Kit

by Steve Kindig
Goal Zero

A versatile solar panel package

The Boulder 30 Kit includes two 30-watt solar panels plus a zippered travel case to carry them in. Each panel weighs only 6-1/2 pounds, so they can be transported comfortably. But these panels are ruggedly built, with tempered glass and aluminum frames, so they're sturdy enough for installation. Just connect the panels to one of Goal Zero's chargers to capture the sun's energy and use it to power your USB, 12-volt, and AC-powered devices. The Boulder 30 Kit makes a great addition to the Yeti 1250 Kit, doubling the amount of solar collection capacity to keep the Yeti's high-capacity battery charged and ready to go.
