A 160w solar panel that is another high-efficiency module from Newpowa

160W Solar Panel160W Solar Panel.

Newpowa 160W solar panel is a polycrystalline module from Newpowa.  It comes with diodes installed. Also one pair of 3 ft cables with MC4 connections.  The  cables come attached to the solar panel.

The 160w solar panel is rigid and strong, and a high performer.

We name it the NEWPOWA 160w 12V Polycrystalline Solar module. 

It comes without a charger  or mount brackets. You can buy standard Z-Brackets for mounting.

The efficiency  is stable and competitive and the color is black.

They encapsulate the cells in EVA.

EVA comes in thin sheets. The manufacturers place them between the solar cells.

For bringing power to applications when grid is not available.

Garden works.

Home appl.

Boat outings.

Camping trips.


Traffic control and various applications.

Junct. Box

Junction-Box with pre-attached 3ft wire and MC4 connectorsJunction-Box with pre-attached 3ft wire and MC4 connectors.

The diodes in the junction you ensure safe operation. Power drops due to shading will be a minimum.

Three feet wire coming with MC4 connectors (M/F) that they attach to the module.

It is IP65 rated.  It protects against damp and low pressure water sprays.

The frame is durable anti-corrosive

They pre-drilled holes in the frame for easy mounting..

It can withstand very high wind speeds, as well as heavy loads of snow as well as hail.

Durable anti-corrosive frameDurable anti-corrosive frame.

They use  tempered glass high-transparent and low iron.

The manufacturer uses a durable TPT back sheet. It is to help to dissipate heat for better performance and longer lifespan.


  • The 160w solar panel comes with  a solid frame and including pre-drilled holes.
  • The connectors fit with standard MC4 connectors. They manufacture the wires to be  good and, thick high-quality conductors...
  • The 160w solar panel produces well. Also during cloudy days as well as under shady conditions.


  • Some people are not happy with the output. Remember though ideal condition is maximum sunlight and middle of summer.

  • Real output  depends on area you stay and the season it is as well as time of day.

  • Some people would also like to have holes in the short sides. The panel comes with holes only on the bigger sides.

Things we can mention about the 160w solar panel

These panels are well manufactured. They do withstand higher winds and heavy loads without any problems.

The panels are well built and good looking.

The 160w module is only a small bit bigger than the 100 watt solar panel. It can operate even when surface is in partial shading.

The module can work well. This is  even so if you mount it horizontal on a vehicle’s roof...

When  mounting the solar module  leave ample room between  panel and roof.

The warranty

It has a two year limited material and workmanship guarantee.

Including 10 years with 90 percent power output guarantee, as well as an eighty percent efficiency of 25 years.

In conclusion

Newpowa sells a good product, and the price is highly competitive.

The 160w solar panel produces  power that is usable and cheap. The design is good and stable. Their shipping is always quick after ordering.
