These have Multi-Contact MC4 Connectors at each edge of the panel. These were designed for residential and commercial building roof installations, however because of the voltage range below 20 Volts they work well for RV Boat and other 12 Volt battery charging applications. These panels are desirable because they are just over 7 feet long and will fit on many smaller RV Roofs. These have no sticky backing like some of the Uni-Solar flexible panels have however, 3M makes a double sided sticky tape which has worked well for many of our customers.
Please understand this is an experimental solar panel that came from the Solopower research and development pilot production manufacturing facility in San Jose, California. This panel is made of flexible CIGS cells which were designed to produce between 1 to 1.5 watts each. Solopower is in the process of building a new production plant in Oregon, however, it is not currently in operation and as such there is no warranty from the manufacturer.
We have a very limited supply of these panels. These are unique panels as they are flexible and very light in comparison to standard solar panels made of glass.
We verify every panel outputs power and has no shorts, however, we have not tested these much beyond what we post below. We have done in-house spot-testing on these non-rated panels and have obtained the following power ratings. These ranges of values are approximate due to the non-rated nature of the panels and changing environmental and solar conditions. Please contact us with any questions.
