Solar panels are typically made up of many cells connected in series, which increase the output voltage of the panel. 

Multiple cells used to be a requirement when circuitry could not run on low voltage power sources, but with modern power management ICs (PMIC), this is no longer the case. 

Designing a single-cell solar solution offers several key benefits over a multi-cell panel of the same dimensions.  

Benefits: 

  • Increased power efficiency 

  • Higher performance on curved surfaces

  • Higher performance in irregular lighting environments

Let's dig a little deeper and see why using fewer cells, and ultimately, a single cell can increase a solar solution's performance.
