A 100w panel is a 100w panel whether mono or poly. I have a 5 year old 80w poly panel with an efficiency of just 12.6% so I just looked up a couple of "better" 80w mono panels expecting them to be considerably smaller. The best I could find was over 17% efficient so was it massively smaller? Nope, about 12% smaller when you would expect it to be over 30% smaller, and it was only 0.5kg lighter. Most were the same size.
Is it just low light conditions when they are better?
