Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our great FAQs and Answers for our Flexible Solar Panel Accessories below:

How to determine the size of solar panel or flexible solar panel I need to get for a desired voltage?

The voltage will vary with the size of the solar panel. Remember Watts (W) = Volts (V) * Amps (A)

Where are our flexible solar panels manufactured?

Our flexible solar panels are manufactured domestically.  This means that they are made in the U.S.   The thin-film solar panels are also manufactured domestically.

Do we sell a flexible solar panel that will power a laptop computer?

Yes we do.  The SolMaxx FlexFold 20W Flexible PV Panel or the SolMaxx FlexFold 62W Flexible PV Panel are two of our products that will power a laptop computer.  The SolMaxx FlexFold 62W Flexible PV Panel will charge a computer more efficiently than the SolMaxx FlexFold 20W Flexible PV Panel.  The SolMaxx FlexFold 20W Flexible PV Panel will charge your laptop computer, but it will work more as a trickle charger, meaning it will take many more hours to charge your laptop especially depending on the weather conditions.

What is the efficiency of PowerFilm modules?

There are many factors that go into the how much power you are able to draw from your solar panels, and many are related to the design and orientation of your solar array. With that in mind, a safe average to assume with PowerFilm technology is 5%. Flexible panel technology, however, is still young compared to rigid panels, and as such is advancing all the time. There are widely varying standards within the industry for solar panel efficiency ratings and we encourage you to test different panels to find their actual power output.

What is the ideal operation temperature for the PowerFilm series?

The PowerFilm series is designed to operate in all atmospheric conditions, though the optimal operation temperature is around 75°F. Every panel gets less efficient as its temperature rises far above 80°F

Do PowerFilm solar panels need maintenance?

Solar Panels are very low maintenance in general. As long as you perform routine checks of the wiring to insure that it maintains its integrity, and wipe off the panel with a damp cloth to remove any dirt and grime that has built up on it, your panels should last a very long time.

1) How can I use my flexible solar panels to charge my electronics and other equipment?

Silicon Solar’s accessories allow you to plug a variety of charging connectors directly into our SolMaxx and Sunlinq panels.  For example, most consumer electronics are chargeable through a cigarette lighter connection, and Silicon Solar carries female lighter adaptors that plug directly into our panels.

2) How do I ensure that I don’t overcharge my batteries with my solar charging kit?

For some solar applications, it is best to use a charge controller to protect the batteries you are charging with solar equipment.  A charge controller, limits the rate at which electric current is added to or drawn from electric batteries.  It prevents overcharging and may prevent against overvoltage.  If left unchecked, these problems could reduce battery performance or lifespan, and may even pose a safety risk.  It may also prevent completely draining a battery to protect battery life.  For further assistance regarding whether you should use a charge controller for certain applications, please call us at 1.800.786.0329.
