  • Yeah, read the datasheet.... but also don't trust it. It would be nice if the datasheet plotted V/I, because these cells perform very differently than typical solar cells. Whereas you can usually conservatively approximate output power by a percentage of Voc multiplied by a percentage of Isc, performing that approximation using the datasheet claims of Voc and Isc way overshoots even perfect power conversion given a much larger 1cm^2 cell.

    I put four of these cells in parallel under roughly one sun of lighting and did not see the claimed Isc using a fluke process calibrator with microAmp resolution.

No public wish lists :(
