To build a 100W solar panel you need all items on this LIST!
➥ 6×6 solar cells kit
.2mm tabbing wire (pre solder coated).
.5mm tabbing wire (buss wire).
.Solder Wire. (Used to tin the solder iron, also used to solder the tab cells on the buss wire).
.Flux Pen. Prevents beading of the solder.
➥ Strapping Tape (sure tape).
➥ Regular tape.
(useful to hold the solar cells).
➥ Sillicone Paste-like seal (UV christaline).
➥ Solar Panel Aluminium Frame
➥ 6/8 gauge AWG Solar Wire (10 gauge 30Amps, 8 gauge 40Amps, 6 gauge 55Amps)
➥ Multimeter. (Volts and Amps).

✦ Polycrystalline Solar Cells
+ The process used to make polycrystalline silicon is simpler and cost less.
+ Polycrystalline solar panels tend to have slightly lower heat tolerance than monocrystalline solar panels.
– The efficiency of polycrystalline-based solar panels is 14-16%.
– Lower space-efficiency. You need to cover more surface to output the same electrical power as Monocrystalline cells.
✦ Monocrystalline Solar Cells
+ Monocrystalline solar cells have the highest efficiency rates.
+ Monocrystalline silicon solar cells are space-efficient.
+ Monocrystalline cells have a long lifespan.
+ Monocrystalline solar panels tend to be more efficient in warm weather.
– Monocrystalline solar panels are the most expensive.
