Goal Zero Portable Chargers - Boulder 100 Briefcase Portable Solar Panel - 287-32408 Review


Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Goal Zero Boulder 100 briefcase solar panel. This is a 100-watt briefcase-style solar panel that's going to convert your sunlight into electricity to power any of the Goal Zero power packs or generators, which are sold separately. Or if you use a solar controller, which is also sold separately, you could charge up a 12-volt battery. So whatever the case is that you're trying to convert that sunlight into electricity for your setup, this is gonna do a great job for you.

This is going to connect to your eight-millimeter solar port connectors with the included cable here. This is capable of 100 watts and open circuit voltage of 18 to 22 volts and up to seven amps. You see we do have these integrated kickstands here that are going to allow us to angle our panel back so that we can get the best angle on the sun to make sure that we're capturing as much sunlight as possible. This is constructed of a tempered glass with an aluminum frame. So it is going to be very durable and waterproof.

It's durable enough that you could use this for a permanent installation if you wanted. Or because it is so lightweight and foldable, you can use it as a transportable option to get set up wherever you're going. It only weighs about 26 pounds, so definitely not too much to carry from wherever you're storing it to get it out in the sun. Obviously, you're not gonna want to take it on the long hike or anything like that. But when we do want to fold it up, very simple to do.

We've got latches on this side here. So we'll just close it up. Get those snapped in place. And we've got this handle here that will allow us to easily transport our panel. They're also going to include this protective carry case.

It's kind of like a canvas feel to it. So it's not padded. It's just gonna help prevent any surface scratches and that sort of thing. So pretty easy to get that slid in place there. So if we're gonna be putting this away to store, transport, we can put that in. We've got zips on either side. We can zip it up, still have access to that handle to carry it. When we're ready to take it out, just undo do those zippers, pull the cover off the corners, and you can lift it back out, like so. Now when we have this folded up like this, we're gonna be looking at a measurement of 21 1/8 of an inch wide. I'm not counting the handle, just counting the panel itself. Our height is 26 3/4 of an inch. And then our thickness is 3 1/4 of an inch. If we open it back up, we're gonna be looking at an overall width of 42 1/14 inch, same height, 26 3/4. And the depth is going to be cut in half obviously, and it's gonna be about 1 5/8 of an inch. So if you are looking to get your solar setup going so that you can charge up your batteries while you're off the grid or make sure that you're getting the most out of your Goal Zero solar generators and power packs, this is gonna be a great option for you. Very easy to get set up to transport and connect to your accessories. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
