Rugged, durable, and rigid, the Boulder 200 is the largest of Goal Zero's monocrystalline solar panels (200W total). Yet it's still portable, folding into a built-in, easy-to-carry briefcase form that makes it the ultimate portable off-grid solar panel. Whether you're camping, working, or homesteading, the Boulder 200 Solar Panel Briefcase is ideally suited for charging portable energy storage banks like Yeti Portable Power Stations. For lower-power charging applications like phones and other USB devices, look to Goal Zero's Nomad solar panels.
The Boulder 200 is waterproof and built with strong tempered glass and an aluminum frame. It's equipped with a collapsible kickstand that helps angle it toward the sun. The kickstand is also removable.
This 200-Watt portable solar panel outputs through an Anderson Powerpole and can be chained in series with other Boulder solar panels (including other Boulder 200s). While this module is not designed for permanent installation, the Boulder 100 solar panel is.

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.
