36 6x6 B-grade monocrystalline solar cell kit for DIY solar panel

This 36 6x6 solar cell kit includes all the components necessary to generate your own of solar power. The included B grade cells are extremely high efficiency, although they may have slight chips or cosmetic damage. A typical configuration is 36 cells in a panel for approx. 22 volts and up to 8 amps.

Each kit includes:
36pcs 6x6 monocristalline solar cells
1 Flux pen
24m tabbing wire
2m buss bar
1 x 10A 45V Schottky Blocking Diode
Please see exact specification below.

DIY solar cells are the cheapest way to generate electricity from the sun for small projects. Building panels from solar cells is highly educational - both electrically and mechanically - and provides days of fun in the sun for those of us who like to build for the sheer pleasure of it. They are also versatile, as you can customise your voltage/current to suit your needs in a way that is impossible with pre-assembled panels. PV cells have a rated lifetime of +20 years if they are maintained and housed correctly. KnowYourPlanet have sold over 1 million solar cells to date, so you can trust us to supply solar cells which work and are sourced from trusted manufacturers in Europe.

We recommend that you mount the cells effectively to ensure a long lifetime, low corrosion and cracking. There are several options for this such as setting the cells inside a double-glazed window, or potting the cells in a liquid silicon like QSIL 216 (alternatively simply paint it to the surface to protect the cells from corrosion, your liquid silicon goes much further this way). We also recommend you use a good soldering iron, we sell the 80w Antex which is well priced and works beautifully. You must also have a good surface to solder onto, like smooth porcelain, glass or special thermally insulated soldering work desk. 

If you are looking for bigger installations please don't hesitate to contact us, we also have a wide range of solar panels, inverters, batteries and much more available at very competitive prices.

Happy soldering,
The KnowYourPlanet team

36x individual 6”x 6” monocrystalline PV solar cells, slightly damaged or chipped, 16.5% cell efficiency
The solar cells are produced by a major international manufacturer.
For a single complete mono cell the output is approx 3.75W. If a cell has a part fractured off, the output is proportionally reduced.
Cells typical voltage is 0.62 in direct sunlight.
A typical sample of cells is as shown on the picture.
Cells are sold without warranty.
