solar power? Answered

i want to get these 12v solar battery chargers they come with alligator clamps to hook to the battery. i want to get enough for 200 volts so how would i hook the solar panels in series, and do i need a controller for each battery? and how would i rig that up and how can I get it going into all the 12 volt batteries without any damage to the batteries etc. And can this be done for less than $400 if the solar panels are $30 each and the batteries are $14 each.
THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!
oh and could you give me links for all the stuff I'm gonna be buying.
THANKS!!!!

Those 12v charger deliver about 1.5 watts so even with 17 of them in series, you'll be getting 200 volts, but only 1.5 watts, not enough to do anything useful with.

Also, what on earth would you need 200 volts DC for?
