Bluetti Releases New PV120/PV200 Solar Panels

Bluetti’s solar panel product line has a shorter history than their power plants: the first SP120 was released in July 2020 along with the superstar AC200 power plant. And later in January 2021, they announced the larger 200-watt SP200 with their first household power station EP500 / Pro. Both the SP120 and 200 are much loved by users of solar generators around the world, and the SP200s have long been my personal favorite portable solar cell.

Overall design

The PV series has an integrated handle made of blue ABS material and a smaller logo on it, which adds the bolder design, while the SP series has black rubber grips and a much more eye-catching “BLUETTI” logo at the end of each panel .

The PV series has a one-piece waterproof coating design that encapsulates all solar cells, while the panels on the SP series are sewn together on a giant raw canvas.

The PV series removed the metal rings (used to hang the solar panel up with ropes or hooks) found on the SP series.

The stand in the PV series has a new snap lock design, which gives the solar panel more options for adjusting angles.

Both the PV and SP series are about the same dimensions. However, the PV solar panels are slightly heavier (by ≈2 pounds) due to the advanced waterproof coating.

efficiency

In terms of solar panel efficiency, here are some basic concepts about the solar battery cell: Monocrystalline. It is constructed of a single large silicon crystal. Monocrystalline panels are without a doubt the most efficient because they can produce a large amount of power even when sunlight is lacking. In terms of efficiency, monocrystalline solar panels are the best. Although they are the most expensive of the three types (monocrystalline, polycrystalline, amorphous), they are usually the most durable and least sensitive to high temperatures.

Both Bluetti’s PV and SP solar panels are monocrystalline, bringing similar overall efficiency around 23% ~ 24%.

Shadow performance

Shadow is the enemy when it comes to solar energy. If a panel is even partially shaded, this will reduce the output of the entire system. Bluetti has also encountered this problem with SP200 panels, 10% of area shade can cause a shocking 40% or more power loss to the entire photovoltaic system. The same can be done with panels from other brands.

The most important upgrade is with Bluetti’s new panels: They changed the connection type for solar cell batteries from serial connection to parallel. Which means that each circuit on the panel can run as an individual and with the same voltage, you will only lose the power of the area with shadows, but the effect on your entire system would be nominal.

When solar panels are exposed to shady conditions, their efficiency decreases and their performance therefore suffers. Environmental barriers such as Trees or buildings nearby, clouds, self-shading between panels in parallel rows, dirt, dust and various other bins, e.g. Bird sand, causes all shade. But now BLUETTI’s PV200 or PV120 can solve all these problems.

Where can it be bought

Bluetti’s new PV panels are now on hot sale with their bundles of solar generators. 200W PV200 was listed at $ 549 per. Piece, and the 120W version for $ 399, but with an AC200P and three PV200 bundles, you can get the 200W panels for as low as $ 425 each!

The discount ends at PDT at 19:00 on September 30, only one week left! Get your discount for as long as it lasts: https://www.bluettipower.com/pages/ac300debutsale
