Avoid these selected Jinko solar panels.

As a world-leading manufacturer by volume, not all Jinko solar panels should be considered a good option. With an extensive range, it is vital to acknowledge the selected models which present themselves when shopping for Jinko solar panels as part of your solar energy system.


Traditionally a mass volume solar module manufacturer of affordable solar panel options, Jinko is now becoming respected as a market innovator after successfully claiming the InterSolar Award 2019 (Swan Bifacial) and InterSolar Award Finalist 2020 (Jinko Tiger N-Type). 

Market dominance and innovations of such products are further distancing Jinko solar panels from the entry-level stigma, which has accompanied the brand over many years. Understanding there is an expansive range of Jinko solar panel options, many initial questions come to mind when researching, such as;

Which to avoid?

Residential homeowners should avoid Jinko’s InterSolar Award-Winning solar panel of 2019. One particular variant of this model that is, the JKM380-400M-72H-TV. There is no issue with the module in general. However, the overall dimensions are not ideal in a residential scenario, much like alternative 72-cell (144-half cut) Jinko solar panels.

Even though the higher watt class for the price is appealing, understand that 72-cell solar panels occupy the same surface area in a system when compared to their 60-cell counterparts. 

Residential 60-Cell (120 – 132 half-cell):

Eagle 60P (270-290W)
16.5 – 17.7%
Eagle HC 60P (275-290W)
16.6 – 17.8%
Cheetah 60M (305-325W)
18.2 – 19.4%

Commercial 72-Cell (144 – 156 half-cell):

Eagle HC 72P (325-345W)
16.5 – 17.5%
Eagle 72M (360-380M)
18.5 – 19.6%
Cheetah 72M (380-400W)
19.1 – 20.1%
Cheetah HC 72M (390-410W)
19.3 – 20.3%
Swan 72M (385-405W)
18.8 – 19.7%

Which to consider?

Through eliminating the alternative Jinko solar panels designed primarily for commercial installations, the Jinko solar panel options are narrowed down by half (nice work!). From this point, understanding the budget and available surface area for system size will ultimately determine the ideal Jinko solar panel for the task.

It’s not all doom and gloom for Jinko’s new darling the Swan. One particular Jinko Swan variant remains an option to be considered.

Residential 60-Cell (120 – 132 half-cell):

Tiger N-Type (370-390W)
19.6 – 20.7%
Cheetah Plus HC (350-370W)
19.5 – 20.6%
Cheetah HC (325-345W)
19.2 – 20.4%
Swan Bifacial HC (315-335W)
18.3 – 19.4%

What is the warranty?

Seeking to differentiate themselves from the pack after adopting a more premium range of solar module options, improved are the warranties. Jinko has now lengthened the product warranty for all module options and performance warranties in the new Swan range.

Product warranty:

As of 2019 Jinko solar panels are equipped with the more preferred 12-year product warranty. A move many alternative manufacturers have adopted to distance themselves from the mainstream pack.

Performance warranty:

Selected Jinko solar panel variants carry a slightly different performance warranty. As a solar modules performance warranty defines warranted cell degradation over time, in a nutshell, Jinko performance warranties are as follows;

P/A after
Tiger N-Type 370 – 390W
Swan Bifacial

Period: Degradation period, Year-1: maximum warranted output degradation in the first year, P/A after: maximum warranted output degradation per annum within the nominated Period after Year-1.

Where are they made?

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: JKS) and a prolific member of the Silicon Modules Super League, Jinko operates multiple manufacturing plants internationally. However, the solar panels received in Australia are derived from Jinko’s fully automated manufacturing facilities in China.

As manufacturing modules are only one element of the process, Jinko solar cell manufacturing occurs in Jinko plants across both China and Malaysia.

As a sign of strength and specifically for the North American market, Jinko, as of 2019 have begun manufacturing solar modules from a newly constructed $50 million plant in Jacksonville, Florida (USA).
