GOAL ZERO™ Boulder™ 30 Solar Panel
using with the yeti 150
I like using 2 (boulder 30's) with my yeti 150. its winter time. so I'm using two of them. I'm sure in the summer one of them will do the job just fine. i do wish they would come with one long cord and one short cord for changing.. the cord it comes with is great for keeping the yeti 150 out of the sun..

High performance and Resiliant
I have a Yeti that I use to plug in a lamp for reading in the evening and I recharge it with three 30 watt Boulders and I can get almost two weeks out of the Yeti (reading about an hour to two hours per evening) and it only takes a day with sunshine or two days during cloudy weather to reacharge it. I have the Boulders permanently affixed to a small shed in my backyard.

Not power enough to charge Yeti 1250
I'm disappointed to spend $1500 brought home the Yeti 1250 and this Boulder 30 last year. The panel has been put directly face to south. It has never been able to fully charge the yeti 1250 even though I only use it for my ipad.

This solar panel defines durable
Last weekend, I was setting up solar panels in my backyard. The weather forecast is calling for sun for the entire week. I have been looking forward for the weather to clear up so I can run the Yeti 400 to check its capabilities. While I was setting up a couple boulder 30 solar panels a large metal flashlight that was left on a shelf above the solar panels rolled out and fell. I herd the flashlight hit the front of one of the panels. It made a loud noise, I thought the glass panel had broken for sure. I still cannot find even a mark where it hit. It is the middle of the week and the boulder 30 solar panels are still supplying the Yeti 400 with plenty of wattage to top it off as Texas keeps it supplied with sun shine. I have three Yeti 400's, and one Yeti 1250 keeping any consumption satisfied. I will invest in more boulder 30 solar panels. Oh by the way it is time to get rid of the old flash light and get some torch 250's.
