The Solar Pocket Kit is capable of producing between 6 - 12 solar panels, depending on the size. Specifically, the standard kit includes 30 of our most versatile solettes (13mm x 52mm) and an assortment of special solettes, including 12 thin, 12 stout, and 12 square. The specific dimensions of the thin, stout, and square solettes are dependent somewhat on the feedback we get during this kickstarter on the most popular projects, and we will tweak the sizes of these special solettes accordingly.
The standard Solar Pocket Kit also comes with high-quality encapsulant, high temperature superglue (also known as cyanoacrylate) for combining the solettes (a first! all the projects in the video were made with this new solderfree DIY technique), four NdFeB magnets for easy electrical connections for projects like the playing card battery charger, and an ample length of adhesive copper tape. Again, all of these materials will be enough to make up to a dozen solar panels (but on average, closer to around nine or so)
We are also getting some questions about the voltage output potential from the Kit. This is up to you! Depending on how many solettes you connect together in series, you can get up to 15V output if you used all 30 of the basic solettes. But if you wanted to make a 5V output, for a solar powered butterfly robot, let's say, you'd need to connect just 10 of the basic solettes together. For a number of projects you won't need soldering (like, the arduino charge card and 5-minute nokia phone charger in some of our instructables don't require any soldering) -- but for more advanced projects soldering is helpful. If you need tips on this, please let us know and we will do our best to help out...!
