These 6 Volt, 9 Watt panels come to Adafruit from Voltaic Systems, makers of fine solar-powered bags and packs. They are waterproof, scratch resistant, and UV resistant.

Using a high efficiency monocrystalline cell and outputting 6V at ~1.5A via 3.5mm x 1.1mm DC jack connector, they are a nice upgrade to the 2W or 3W panels Adafruit have been carrying. The substrate is an aluminum / plastic composite, specifically designed to be strong and lightweight. These panels can easily stand up to typical outdoor use including being dropped and leaned on. They're very high quality and suggested for projects that will be exposed to the outdoors. These come with 4 plastic mounting screws which makes it easy to attach the panel, even to fabric!

Adafruit have a range of solar panels to choose from: Medium 6V 2W, Large 6V 3.4W, Huge 6V 5.6W, and this one Adafruit are calling Colossal 6V 9W!

To connect, we suggest a 3.5mm OD/1.1mm ID DC jack or you can use this handy adapter cable which will turn it into a standard 5.5mm/2.1mm DC plug

If you want to use this to charge a battery or run your project, check out Adafruit's optimized Solar Lithium Ion/Polymer charger!
