A solar panel is essentially constructed in a way that it absorbs the sun’s solar heat and converts it into electricity.
This solar panel is made of single-crystal material that performs high solar energy transformation efficiency at 17%. It has a fine resin surface and sturdy back suitable for outdoor environments. A 2mm JST connecter is attached to the penal, which makes it perfect to team up with most of our can-use-solar-power-supply boards, like Seeeduino microcontroller series, Lipo Rider charging boards series and XBee carrier WSN products series.
The typical open circuit voltage is around 5V, depending on light intensity. In those bright summer days with clear sky and big sun, the peak OC voltage can rush up to 10V. To prevent any damage to boards that accept a narrow range of input voltage, like Lipo Rider, its recommended to check whether the OC voltage is safe before any connection.
