Why the solar cannot produce 100W power when charging to Jackery power station?

It is well known that there are several factors that affect the solar panels. These factors include but are not limited to the intensity of the sunlight available and the angle with which the solar panel is placed on the ground.

During the production of the Jackery SolarSaga 100W portable solar panel, the myriad of testing done took place in an ideal laboratory. That means that all the factors were tightly controlled.

That is not always the case in real life, though. The intensity of light is constantly in flux and the angle of the light illuminating the solar panel is not fixed. It is constantly shifting with the rotation of the sun.

To refute your guess, why don’t you try placing your solar panel under the full glare of the sunlight and see that your worries are unfounded? Be sure that there is no shadow cast on the panel.

Is the solar panel waterproof?

The SolarSaga 100W is not waterproof and will not function maximally if wet. To avoid that as well as maximize the lifespan of the module, be sure to avoid water coming in contact with the solar panel.

How to clean the solar panel surface?

The surface of the solar panel can be cleaned with the use of a soft cloth. Gently rubbing over the surface gets rid of the dust and dirt that could have settled on the surface. To clean the surface of the solar module, make use of a damp cloth.

This ensures you actually catch all the hidden dust and dirt. Be sure to get rid of any guano or other adhesives from the solar surface as soon as possible to avoid reduced performance. All of these points are also present in the user manual for easy remembrance.
