Special features
• Built in 200mm connection leads

What can I use this cell for?
Use the sun to power your creations with this solar cell. Connect the attached 200mm wires to a storage device or straight to a battery to harness the power of solar energy. The polycrystalline solar cell can produce up to 3V and 100mA of power. With its epoxy resin coating this cell is water resistant and with its compact size of just 60mm x 48mm, it is a great addition to many projects and solar powered vehicles.
Connect more cells in series to create a higher output voltage or parallel to create a higher current. Be aware the more cells used the larger the variations produced by different amount of light will be.
Specifications
Output voltage 3V
Output current Up to 100mA
Dimensions 60 mm x 48 mm x 3 mm

Does this solar panel produce DC or AC voltage?

Asked by: Jimmy32
output is DC

What would the output be with a light level of only 1000 Lux (very dull day)? Do you have a graph of voltage/current output plotted against light level (Lux or Lumens)? Could you email a copy. Many thanks

what solar irradiance is required to provide 100ma

Asked by: davejmcg
The manufacture of the item has not given this information they have provided this reply The maximum that can be outputted is 100mA, however this requires direct and constant sunlight. You will likely measure less than this depending on the intensity of the sun.

If I wire 4 of these 3V solar cells in series would it power a DC12V (0.17A) fan that I have salvaged from an old computer hard drive?

Asked by: wallerofhove
No, 4 of these is series would give 12V @ 0.1A, to run this fully you would have to run extras in parallel to get the amps up.

Can these solar cell be connected in series to give more voltage

Asked by: proffesor bob
You can link them in series, but I would not recommend leaving out in bad conditions as they are not IP rated.

Could you link 3 in series and use to power radio that usually takes 1x9v battery? I have an old Roberts Rambler that I would like to convert to solar.

Asked by: Jojo
You would also need to think about the current draw of the radio. This would give you 9v but only 100mA.

Can you link 3 or 4 of these in series to create 12v system and can they be mounted on shed roof all year round 

Asked by: Garyb
You can link them in series, but I would not recommend leaving out in bad conditions as they are not IP rated.
