SunPower Maxeon solar cells FAQs

How can I attach the Interconnection tabs to the cells?

There are a number of methods but often cell customers use a soldering iron. Also we have an instruction guide that explains how to connect the cell and tabs so feel free to contact us from the inquiry page.

What is the difference between High and Medium Cosmetic Quality?

Cells with a high cosmetic quality have slight color variations on the front side. After laminating, the color of the solar cells has a dark appearance even with a black background. Cells with a moderate cosmetic quality have some color variations on the front side. After laminating, the color variations on the cells became less obvious but are often still visible when inspected from short distances.

Is there any instruction guide so that I can use it safely?

Yes, we have an instruction guide to share so feel free to contact us from inquiry.

I see SunPower cells for sale on the internet. Are these sales by Maxeon Solar Technologies also?

These are not SunPower or Maxeon Solar Technologies sales sites. We cannot guarantee the effectiveness or safety of those cells.
