special at $12.70 + GST trade in 1/s
This is an ugly looking octagonal panel using 4 quarter round cells with
"reasonable" but not good packing density. (121mm  x 121mm x 4mm deep.)

Cells are electrically in series.

These cells MAY represent the best value for money per watt available for
small size solar panels. (If anyone in NZ / Oz knows a better value small

at the beach (get a life).
