Ditch the grid.
The 4x4 van you call home wasn't built to be tethered to RV lots and pay-to-play campsites—get away from the closest power outlet with the Goal Zero Boulder 200 Briefcase. Being the largest of Goal Zero's monocrystalline solar panels, the Boulder 200 provides a max output of 200 watts, enabling it to charge a Goal Zero Yeti 400 in just 4-8 hours or the 1000 in 10-20; that's plenty of time for you to go climb for the day, explore a desert slot canyon, or go for a day hike and return to a fully charged power station.
It would be a disservice to talk about the Boulder 200 without mentioning its compact design. The two panels are joined by a hinge that enables the panels to fold on themselves when you need to stash it in the back of your rig or carry it out and away from the shade of a tree you're camped under. Removable kickstands and a protective carrying case make it easy to transport and set up, and the weatherproof construction is designed to withstand the wear and tear Mother Nature can dish out.

- Q & A
Boulder 200 Solar Panel is powerful
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very Heavy for me to but packed with reliable power. I have several Allpowers 100W folding solar panels (about 5 pounds each) and a Suaoki 60W folding solar panel (about 3.5 pounds) which work great are are easy for me to handle. (I'm a senior citizen and disabled vet).
This panel puts out a lot of power...Even on cloudy days I get a least 20W / 1.9X AMPS more or less (when overcast !)
Using the Goal Zero Anderson to MC4 adapter I was able to easily connect to my various "solar generators" like EasyFocus 288Wh and Suaoki G500, 500 Watt.
Remember that Goal Zero's "version" of Anderson Power Pole connector is VERTICAL not HORIZONTAL like most, so you'll need an UN-BONDED Anderson Power Pole Connector.
The Goal Zero Boulder 200 Solar Panel appears very well made.
It's pricy. $500+. My Allpowers folding 100W solar panel was less than $200.
I recommend this for those that want lots of reliable power and can deal with moving around 42 pounds.
Just a PS here. The unit comes with a fabric carrying case but as the case is presently designed, you have to LIFT this 42 pound monster over the case to get it into the case. I have suggested to Goal Zero that they make the case so it can be placed OVER the Boulder 200 which would require no lifting of the panel.
