NEW PRODUCT – Small 6V 1W Solar Panel – Silver


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

We have a range of solar panels to choose from: Medium 6V 2WLarge 6V 3.4WHuge 6V 5.6W, and Colossal 6V 9W!

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

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
