BP Solar Panel 5Watt 12Volt (Polycrystalline)

BP 5 Watt 12 Volt Solar Module


The smallest of BP Solar’s SX module series, BP SX 5 photovoltaic modules operate DC loads with small to moderate energy requirements. With 36 multicrystalline cells in series, they charge 12V batteries efficiently in virtually any climate. Typical commercial applications of these modules, which generate nominal, maximum power of 4.5 watts and 10 watts respectively, include remote telemetry, instrumentation systems, security sensors, and signals.




  • Minimum power output of 93% for the first 12 years and 85% through 25 years
  • Freedom from defects in materials and workmanship for 2 years
