Pros / These solar panels are strong enough to handle 1-inch hailstones flying at 52 mph.

Cons / You get only five years of coverage for materials and workmanship.

 Verdict / The Lumos LSX250-60M solar panels are aesthetically set apart from other solar modules with their unique design. Not everyone might like it, but the modernistic style will undoubtedly appeal to many consumers.

With its frameless and modernistic glass-like modules, Lumos LSX250-60M solar panels not only provide an opportunity to harness some sunpower to cut your electric bills, but they extend a forward-thinking and attractive aesthetic aspect to a rooftop that is unexpected in most suburbs.

These monocrystalline tempered-glass solar panels are designed for easy installation, look quite attractive and offer a decent solar energy efficiency percentage of 14.68 percent, which is not stellar but still will cut electric bills nicely over the years.

Unlike most solar panels that employ anodized aluminum frames, these are designed for installation without frames so the appearance of a rooftop installation gives the effect of a solid piece of sleek and attractive material. Instead of frames, these panels have mounting holes between the cells and can be mounted on trademarked Lumos rails. These have a low profile and can blend in appealingly with any home design.

As an additional effort to enhance the aesthetics of these solar panels, Lumos lets you also choose among module back sheets that are black, clear or white, depending upon what looks best on your roof.

When it comes to maximum power output, these panels provide a respectable 250 watts. They offer a maximum voltage of 30.1 volts and a maximum power current of 8.31 amps. The panels come with 60 cells per module. Despite their all-glass appearance, these modules are strong enough to handle hailstones approximately one-inch in diameter that are whipped by winds up to 52 mph. These can operate in temperatures ranging from 40 degrees below zero to 185 degrees F.

As far as panel dimensions go, these come in at 64.6 inches in length, 39.1 inches in width and 1.38 inches in depth. Each weighs 62.6 pounds. They can handle loads of snow up to 50 pounds per square foot with the portrait-style arrangement of panels and 113 pounds per square foot with the landscape arrangement.
