How to solder tabbing wire onto solar cells while making your own solar panels Part 4

After the tabbing wires have been cut and pre tinned and the solar cells are also pre tinned, the next step is to solder the tabbing wire onto your solar cells. Place a small weight very carefully on the solar cell to keep it from moving while you work. Be very careful, these things are extremely fragile. Take your pretinned tabbing wire and place it along the contact on the solar cell. Make sure the soldered side of the tabbing wire faces down. Secure it in place with a small weight. Run the soldering iron gently, without applying pressure, along the length of the tabbing wire. Feed solder along as you go. It does not take much solder at all, but the solder will help make a solid contact. For detailed instructions, see our website. www.TheDIYWorld.com
