Construction of Voltaic Solar Panels

Ever wondered about how a Voltaic solar panel is constructed? Here’s a short video showing the the composition of the panel and why its so strong.

Medium 6V 2W Solar panel 2.0 Watt. These panels come to us from Voltaic Systems, makers of fine solar-powered bags and packs. These are waterproof, scratch resistant, and UV resistant. They use a high efficiency monocrystalline cell. They output 6V at 330 mA via 3.5mm x 1.3mm DC jack connector. The substrate is an aluminum / plastic composite, specifically designed to be strong and lightweight. They can easily stand up to typical outdoor use including being dropped and leaned on. They’re very high quality and suggested for projects that will be exposed to the outdoors.

New! These now comes with 4 plastic mounting screws which makes it easy to attach the panel, even to fabric!

  • Size: 4.4″ x 5.4″ / 110mm x 140mm
  • Weight: 4 ounces / 120 grams
  • Cell type: Monocrystaline
  • Cell efficiency: 17%+

To connect, we suggest a 3.8mm OD/1.3mm ID DC jack

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
