The OX-10L 1x5 Photovoltaic Panels is a rectangular deployable solar array. It is cheaper and lighter than its shrouded counterpart the SP-10L Photovoltaic Panels, but is unprotected and not retractable. It was introduced in 1.12.
The OX-10L is a deployable solar panel. These panels generate electric charge only when extended and directly illuminated by the light of Kerbol. To extend, just click the Extend Panels option in the part menu by right-clicking on it. Unlike SP-series panels or the Gigantor XL Solar Array, OX-series panels cannot be retracted after they have been deployed and as such are unprotected from impacts or aerodynamic stresses.
The electricity generation efficiency depends on the distance to Kerbol and angle of light hitting the panels. The panels automatically track Kerbol on one axis, but this does not ensure the 8.25 unit/second specified at Kerbin's distance every time.
