Mini Solar Panels

I'm looking for a mini solar panel(1.5v) to power a ventilating fan(1.5v) in a remote locker.

Nicro used to sell such a kit but no longer does, the panel was 3" X 5". Perhaps cannibalizing a mushroom type solar vent?

The solar mini panels I've checked online aren't weatherproof and robust enough for the marine environment.

I have considered solar lawn lights but they likely wouldn't provide enough current to power a fan motor (and aren't very well made).


Thanks,
Ronbo

Power Film inc, Ames IA might have a good option. Small rugged flexible panels.
