Soldering Cells

After purchasing a flux pen from Maplin, we started the long job of tinning all the cells, front and back and the fitting the tabbing wire between the cells to join 36 together for each solar panel.

The photo below shows the rolls of tabbing wire, the flux pen and a pack of 50 cells
