These panels come to us from Voltaic Systems, makers of excellent solar-powered bags and packs. These are waterproof, scratch resistant, and UV resistant. With a high efficiency monocrystalline cell, they output 6V at 180 mA via 3.5mm x 1.1mm DC jack connector. The substrate is an aluminum / plastic composite, specifically designed to be durable and lightweight. They can easily stand up to typical outdoor use including being dropped and leaned on. They’re very high quality and are perfect for outdoor projects.
These also come with 4 plastic mounting screws which makes it easy to attach the panel, even to fabric!
To connect, we suggest a 3.5mm OD/1.1mm ID DC jack, or you can use this handy 2.1mm adapter cable which will turn it into a standard 5.5mm/2.1mm DC plug
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.
