When you're out camping, you don't have to give up all your creature comforts. It's important to have portable power sources for your appliances and to keep your campsite well-lit at night. At StarPower Advance Solar Technology, we offer a range of affordable, high-quality portable power sources, including inverter generators and lithium batteries. However, our solar panels are the most popular product we offer, especially our VoltX flexible solar panels.
What Are Flexible Solar Panels?
Solar panels come in two types: monocrystalline and polycrystalline. Monocrystalline panels are made from a single silicon crystal ingot, while polycrystalline panels are made from silicon wafers that contain multiple individual silicon crystals. Polycrystalline panels are cheaper to make, but also less efficient than monocrystalline panels. The active cells of solar panels are rigid and typically as wide as a human hair. In contrast, flexible solar panels are much thinner, usually only a few microns wide, which allows some models to bend and flex.
