This compact, high efficiency photovoltaic solar cell produces 1.5 volts and 0.75 watts of DC power. The solar cell module comes encased in clear plastic for durability and has wires attached for easy use. The higher voltage makes this solar cell ideal for powering small motors and various solar energy and science projects.
This 1.5 volt solar cell will power our DC motors or 1.5-volt bulbs. Combining multiple solar cells in parallel or in series will increase amperage or voltage to power almost any DC electrical device. This solar cell produces 0.75 watt of power output at 500 mA and 1.5 volt. The size of the solar cell is approximately 6cm x 9cm.
Photovoltaic solar cells harness the power of the sun by absorbing particles of light (photons), which are transferred to a semi-conductor in the cell to produce a flow of electricity.
