0.5V 1.5W Mini Solar Panel by Solar Made®. Ready to use! No Soldering. Encapsulated mini-panels utilize solar cells similar to those that power Solar Made satellites in space, yet they are safe and simple to use. Mini-panels allow for handling without the normal breakage and cell damage associated with fragile solar cells. 6" red/black lead wires attached. Modules may be connected to create different outputs. Retail card display is easy to read and colorful with model numbers, associated outputs and connection diagrams. All mini panels are tested VOC (voltage open circuit), ISC (current short circuit), using one full sun condition. General helpful hints - Most applications require charging batteries (the solar operating voltage must be higher than the battery voltage). Direct powering of devices requires knowing the voltage and current of your device. Science Projects: Light bulbs - use light emitting diodes (LED) which require 3 volts, plus 50mA per LED. Motors - recommend Solar Made "best solar motor" #MC-05/07 runs 0.50v (1/2) to 7.2 volts, 100mA to start-up, then runs at only 20mA. Most important for operating miniature motors is the "current", most other motors will require at least 200mA to 500mA of current with the voltage being less important.

- The majority of solar panels and solar battery chargers are made using Mono or Single-Crystal Silicon solar cells
- Designed and manufactured using innovative technologies
- Expertly crafted from the highest grade materials
The story of Solar Made® began in 1978 when the company started to manufacture solar panels. Today it provides a wide variety of solar powered products, including solar cells, chargers, ventilation vents, motion displays, and more. Solar Made proudly makes its products in the USA, in a 5000-square foot manufacturing facility in Colorado Springs. The majority of the company’s solar panels and solar battery chargers are produced using mono or single-crystal silicon solar cells, many of which feature the Space Satellite grade. So, if you are in search of a tried-and-true solar-powered device, look no further. Solar Made is the brand you can trust.
