Description: Packaged solar cell with barrel plug termination. This is a custom cell produced for SFE - not a small toy surplus item! This unit is rated for 8V open voltage and 310mA short circuit. We actually took a random unit outside and measured 9.15V open voltage and 280mA short circuit. Under ideal sun conditions (high-noon, clear sky) 310mA is very possible but will vary from cell to cell. We can even get 110mA from inside our office windows!
Termination is a 5.5mm x 2.1mm barrel plug, center positive on a 2m cable. Monocrystalline high efficiency cells at 15-15.2%. Mates directly with many of our development boards. Unit has a clear epoxy resin coating with hard-board backing. Robust sealing for out door applications!
Dimensions: 7 x 4.5"

This is actually a really nice solar cell. I buy these over other cells available online, as they pack quite a punch for their size. Sparkfun, well done.
This panel worked as expected. I recommend it for lower power requirements!
