These panels come to Adafruit from Voltaic Systems, makers of fine solar-powered bags and packs. These are waterproof, scratch resistant, and UV resistant. They use a high efficiency monocrystalline cell. They output 6V at 930 mA via 3.5mm x 1.1mm DC jack connector - 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. They 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 now come with 4 plastic mounting screws which makes it easy to attach the panel, even to fabric!

To connect, we suggest a 3.5mm OD/1.1mm ID DC jack or you can use this handy 2.1mm 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!
