More Information on Solar Panels...

What is a Solar Panel?

A solar panel, photovoltaic module, solar module or photovoltaic panel is an assembly of photovoltaic cells. It can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system in order to generate electricity. A photovoltaic system usually includes an array of solar panels and an inverter. It may also sometimes contain a battery or solar tracker as well as interconnection wiring.

Types of Solar Panels

There are several different kinds of solar panels. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Maximum PowerVoltage, Maximum PowerCurrent, Maximum Power, Size and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for Maximum PowerVoltage are 4 V, 5.01 V and 6.06 V. We also carry solar panels with Maximum PowerVoltage up to 8 V. Maximum Power can be between 0.2 mW and 1.081 W.
