Solbian 144W SP series Flexible Solar panels

Solbian 144W SP series has monocrystalline silicon cells, reaching a record 23% conversion of sunlight into electricity and with a pleasant appearance due to back-contact technology which hides the electrical contacts. SunPower ™ cells represent the most advanced available technology on the market, and make the SP Solbian panels the highest- efficiency flexible panels. Panels are 18 mos old and have faded appearance - they are functional and have recently been removed from our sailboat. A recent Practical Sailor article (May 2020) found that surface scratches and hazingdid not affect performance of solar panels - full performance to original specs cannot be guaranteed by this seller - but they are functional. List price is $1700 per panel - that is why they are being sold at such a price reduction. These panels have already been replaced with new panels under warranty from Solbian (for cosmetic reasons) - so these serial numbers cannot be replaced again by Solbian.
Flexible, powerful and robust, the panels of the SP series are recommended for all installations where maximum reliability and power are required, and the appearance of these cells is one of the symbols of photovoltaic modules. They can be used in all situations and are a best seller in marine applications.
SOLBIANFlex SP Series Features:

The most efficient flexible modules on the market
Flexible and lightweight (2.2 kg/m)
Completely waterproof and resistant to salt water
Thin (less than 2 mm)
IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 certification

Integrated bypass diodes to minimise output losses associated with partial shading

White back sheet with snaps or fabric with zipper for bimini installation
Adaptable to any battery: from 5 to 48 volt, lead-acid or lithium
Designed and manufactured in Italy
SunPower ™ cells used in SP series panels are high efficiency monocrystalline cells (the highest available on the market). The electric contacts create a thick pattern resembling two interpenetrating combs on the rear of the cell, this guarantees an optimal management of micro fractures, without power loss. SunPower ™ cells are also the best choice when it comes to efficiency in low light and sensitivity at higher temperatures. In fact the temperature coefficient is 25% lower than the other cristalline cells
