About product

Q.PEAK DUO XL-G10 is a powerful solar panel for ground-based installation and large solar projects. It is engineered in Germany and comes at a comfortable price.


  • 480W power output
  • > 20.7% efficiency
  • 156 half-cut monocrystalline cells
  • 1500V maximum system voltage
  • MC4-Evo2 connectors or comparable

High efficiency allows to make smart use of your space

Q CELLS panel shows a high conversion rate that goes over 20.7% with the average numbers on the market being 18-19%. German engineers devised a zero gap cell layout which allows the use of the active surface of a solar panel to full extent.

More cells provide more power

Q.PEAK features an unorthodox number of cells: 156 half-cut monocrystalline cells instead of 144. Additional cells are what allows the panel to provide 480W of solar power. The panel is slightly longer than standard, but you pay less overall by purchasing high-output modules.

Q.ANTUM technology ensures excellent temperature behavior

The panels Q CELLS features Q.ANTUM DUO technology which makes the panel retain high output in all kinds of weather. On one hand, it prevents the energy losses at high temperatures, making this model a good choice for hot areas. On the other hand, the panel does well even in low-light conditions — on cloudy days and in the winter.

Panel comes with 12/25-year warranties for product and power

Q.PEAK DUO XL-G10.C is protected by standard warranties from Hanwha Q CELLS: 12-year warranty for product and 25-year warranty for performance. The degradation rate of Q CELLS panels is lower than average: a module loses no more than 0.5% of its initial output per year. After 25 years panels are guaranteed to have at least 86% of nominal power.

A1SolarStore staff handled my order very professionally and the delivery was on time. The panels themselves are very good-looking and they indeed do well on bad days. It feels like engineers finally figured out how to deal with clouds and bad weather in general.

Can these panels be used for roof residential installation?

Yes, sure.
I want to buy 3 of the 480W pannels, series hookup of course, so I need to size my charge controller accordingly to charge a bank of 12V x 200 ah batteries. I have a charge calculator I found online, but it needs the figures for the "T" in the STC for each panel, I do not see that in the spec sheet. Or else I'm blind!! Thanks

It's not exactly clear what did you mean by T in STC. A charge controller for 3 x 480V panels and 12V battery should have at least 150V maximum voltage (preferably 200) and at least 40A, if we're talking about series hookup.
how’s that engineered in germany? I thought q cells is a korean brand.

Hanwha Q CELLS still has engineered teams in Germany, despite the fact that the executives reside in Seoul.
what kind of inverter would you recommend with these?
02/02/2022, 16:02
Well, it depends on the properties of your system. If you plan to build a high-output installation out of these panels, it’s most likely to be grid-tie. In that case we would recommend SolarEdge and Fronius inverters — there are several models that are designed for powerful systems, 10 kW or more.


How much is shipping and how long is delivery?
Our standard shipping charge is $250 for up to 11 panels and it is increased by $25 for every 4 additional panels. In the event, the product is only available on East or West coast custom quote will be sent to you before the order is processed. Normally, we are able to deliver solar panels within 7 business days.
What is the difference between low price panels and top price panels?
With top tier solar panels, you pay for the brand name, proprietary new technology, higher energy output, and better warranty support.
What are the dimensions of the panel?
Please refer to the product datasheet on the product page. We have a datasheet for every product we sell.
How long is the warranty on the panel?
In general, manufacturers provide a 25 year-long performance warranty and a 10 year-long equipment guarantee. Some manufacturers offer 12-15 years of warranty. More information is available in our warranty support section.
Which panels do you recommend for RV, marine?
We recommend Panasonic and Mission Solar panels for smaller systems as their high energy output and excellent craftsmanship guarantee years of service.
Can this panel be used with a 12v system?
Any of our panels can be used for a 12v system with a properly selected inverter and charge controller.
Can I pick up this panel from your fulfillment center to save on shipping?
Yes, we can set up a pick up at a local distributor. Please call to discuss options and stock availability.
How do I connect these panels?
To achieve the best system efficiency, panels should be connected in series to create higher voltage.
How many panels do I need?
This number is determined by your average energy needs. Depending on the type of panels and energy consumption, you might need anywhere from 12 to 45 solar panels. Remember, the more panels you install the more energy you will get.Please use our solar calculator to estimate your energy consumption and plan on building a solar system that will exceed your energy needs by 25%.
Do you offer discounts?
We do offer discounts for orders of over 50 units. Please contact us for details.
How do I build a solar system?
Please use our solar calculator to estimate what equipment you need. Choose your panels, microinverters, inverters, and solar batteries if necessary.Please note that we do not offer solar system design or installation.
How do solar panels compare?
Solar panels differ by power output, voltage, connection type, size, efficiency, and weight. Some solar panels might be sold together with microinverters as a set.
Can I build a solar system by myself as a Do It Yourself project?
Yes, it is possible if you understand what solar equipment you need and how to connect it together. However, please be mindful that handling your own electrical work without having proper experience might cause life-threatening injuries. Please contact a certified electrician if you do not possess appropriate electrical skills.
Can I connect and charge my solar panel battery directly with the solar panel?
We do not recommend using the solar panel without the charge controller. Using solar panels without the charge controller might damage the batteries.
Can I drill holes into the aluminum frame for mounting?
We do not recommend drilling any new holes to the aluminum frame of the panel as it could damage the internal circuit and solar cells. (Also, any modification to the panel will void the warranty). We recommend only using the pre-drilled holes for mounting.
Do solar panels require maintenance? Can I wash my solar panel?
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance. We recommend cleaning the solar panel with water, glass cleaner (Windex) and microfiber cloth.
Will my panel produce power in an overcast condition?
While solar panels require sunlight to generate solar energy, they will still work in cloudy weather. Even on a cloudy day, solar panels will produce energy just not as much.
Will my panels produce power if covered with snow?
Solar panels cannot produce electricity if covered with snow.
What is the best direction for a solar panel to face?
The best direction for a solar panel to face is the South
