1) The calculations are taking the deterioration of the solar panel and rechargeable batteries already into account. In case of using our solar panel, use LSD NiMH rechargeables with a capacity of at least 2000mAh only (We advise GP-Recyko).

2) The 60° slope of our 1Wp solar panel is an optimum to get through the darkest months in Northern Europe. Outside the tropics you need to face the panel to the equator, inside the tropics you need the face the panel eastwards (Azimuth = -90º) or westwards (Azimuth = +90º).

3) Please consult the PV yield estimator for 
Europe  or Africa & Asia to determine the daily full sun hours (Hd) at the optimum Azimuth for our 60º sloped panel in your region. If your region is outside Europe or Africa, choose a matching GPS latitude in one of the maps.
