Solar Cells by the Pound

Need smaller sections of solar cells? We offer broken / chipped (the sizes of the solar cells are broken / chipped), however the solar cells are perfectly ok to use. More details below on the accessories and how many watts per lb.

Don't forget the accessories you'll need

Be sure to check out our soldering iron and accessories perfect for building your solar panel project.
  • Soldering Iron – make sure you have a good quality soldering iron when soldering solar cells.
  • Flux Pen – Is essential when building a solar panel. Not all flux pens are created equal. Make sure the flux will not react with your solar cells after 1-2 years (80% of flux on market will destroy solar cell)
  • Tabbing – You’ll need 2mm and 5mm tabbing. The 2mm is for interconnecting between the solar cells, and 5mm between your “strings” of solar cells.

Plan a little before building your solar panels.

  • How many watts do you need? 
  • What voltage do you need?
  • Where will the solar panel go? 
  • How will you encapsulate it?
