Portable solar panels are the basic power generating units for Modular armor. They provide only a small amount of power, and only during the daytime.

Portable solar panels can be used to slowly recharge Energy shields out of combat, but are nearly useless for Personal laser defense or Basic exoskeleton equipment, even with a large number of Batteries.

Portable solar panels are 1x1 in size and are therefore primarily used in Basic modular armor, which has a 5x5 grid that cannot usefully hold a much more powerful 4x4 Portable fusion reactor. (It could store one, but there would be no room for anything to use the power.)

The more advanced armors should almost always use portable fusion reactors instead.
