An incredibly lightweight & low-profile solar charger, the Voltaic 9W/18V P108 is a rugged, waterproof, lightweight 9 Watt, solar panel designed for portable applications and small remote power projects. At 18V output, it is tuned for charging 12V battery systems like the PWRbox Mini 10 (use an MPPT charge controller), and portable power packs, such as the Voltaic V88 and Goal Zero Sherpa 100PD & Sherpa 100AC. Multiple units can be combined in parallel for more power.
The P108 is easily mountable for long term outdoor applications such as remote data collection. Pair with a Voltaic battery pack or charge a 1S LiIon or LiPO4 cell.
The P108 9W (18V) Solar Panel features…
- High-efficiency SunPower solar cells

HOW TO USE THIS 9W SOLAR PANEL…
Store solar power in a battery pack for use anytime at max power
This is a compact, lightweight, powerful option for charging battery banks such as the Voltaic V88 or V250, or Goal Zero Sherpa 100PD & Sherpa 100AC. The power you store from the panel in the back-up battery pack can be used any time, day or night, to charge your laptop, smartphone, GPS, camera, iPad, and more.
Connect multiple panels together…
Want to combine several Voltaic solar panel together to create a more powerful solution?
Use the Voltaic Combiner Cable
This give you multiples of the solar module’s output at the same voltage (6V). Ideal if you would like to protect against shading, or maximize the input to your battery pack (check its specs).
CONNECT THE PANELS TOGETHER PHYSICALLY
Use Panel Clip Edge Connectors to build bigger modules from smaller modules.

Use Voltaic solar modules in your solar power projects
Connect to your projects using the 3.1×1.1mm barrel connector on the end of the panel’s output cable. A great option for school science classes, electronics, and alternative energy studies. Cost effective, rugged, and efficient.
Mounts For These Solar Panels…
You’ll want to grab a couple of sets of the corner kits for ETFE panels – these utilize the corner & side holes on the module, and provide strapping locations.
Want to attach your Voltaic solar module to a wall, pole, or railing?
Check out the Universal Mounting Bracket.
Of course you can also use zip ties, straps or other means via the solar panels’ corners.
