Solar cell, 1 volt, 500 ma

Item# EL-SUNCELL

Our 1.0 volt solar cell module comes complete with attached wires and encapsulated in a clear plastic case for durability. This very efficient photovoltaic solar cell is ready to use with no soldering necessary. It is perfect for a variety of science and hobby projects.

One of these solar cells will power our DC motors or 1.5-volt bulbs. You can use multiple solar cells in parallel or in series to increase amperage or voltage as needed to power almost any DC electrical device. This solar cell produces 0.5 watt of power output at 500 mA and 1.0 volt. The size of the solar cell is approximately 6cm x 9cm.

One of the most common ways of harnessing the sun's energy is by using solar cells, also known as photovoltaic (PV) cells. Photovoltaic solar cells absorb particles of light (photons), which are transferred to a semi-conductor in the cell to produce a flow of electricity.

I order these solar cells to make solar cars in my environmental science class. I chose Home Science Tools because I found them cheaper here than at my usual catalog site. They worked very well. I also ordered motors. We did have to use a soldering iron to connect the leads but the kids enjoyed that. Thanks, Martha Holmen
