Solar Power My Project Contest

Title-Arduino-Contest

Solar Power My Project Contest.

We are giving away 5 of our new 6 Watt Solar Panel Kits (normally $89) to people trying to take their Arduino, remote sensor, Wi-Fi, wireless or any other technical project off grid. If you prefer and it meets your requirements, you could alternatively use our 3.4 Watt pole-mountable solar panel. We will be giving out kits to winners on a rolling basis through October 30th.

Enter here.


Also, check out new panels!

NEW PRODUCT – Huge 6V 5.6W Solar panel – 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 930 mA via 3.5mm x 1.3mm DC jack connector – a nice upgrade to the 2W or 3W panels we have been carrying. 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. These now come with 4 plastic mounting screws which makes it easy to attach the panel, even to fabric!

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

If you want to use this to charge a battery or run your project, check out our optimized Solar Lithium Ion/Polymer charger!
