Description[edit | edit source]

The Small Solar Panel is one of the Solar panels in Astroneer as well as a power source. It can be placed on a Platform, Vehicle, or the player's backpack. As expected, it only works during the daytime. It is smaller than the Solar Panel. At night, the small solar panel orients itself completely upward (or perpendicular to its slots). During the daytime, it will orient itself automatically toward the sun (if possible).

Usage[edit | edit source]

  • A small solar panel produces 0.5 units/sec, or 8 secs/bar worth of power. Without any other source of energy, a single small solar panel will fill a backpack main battery in about 20 seconds.
  • When placed on Modules, a small solar panel will fill one column of battery in 8 seconds. So, for example, the 8-bar internal battery of a Smelter will be filled by one small solar panel in 64 seconds.
  • Small solar panels will transmit energy even when placed on Storages, except if they can't orient themselves toward the sun because the Storage is not properly oriented (or is underground).
