Since its release in 2020, the Jinko 440w solar panel has become extremely popular because of its affordability and performance. Today, we thought we would do a Jinko 440w Tiger Pro Review and assess whether it is their best panel yet.
Jinko solar panels were our top seller last year due to being one of the best solar Panels on the Australian market. They are a winner and work amazingly well in any home solar system.
The Jinko 440w Tiger pro, compared to other Jinko solar panels, comes in a bigger size. Making it better for smaller roofs can maximise the space and allow for a more extensive system on the roof. This is one of the many popular features this solar panel has to offer and why it is so popular now.
As always, consultations are so important so do book in with one of our Jinko specialists here if you are interested. If you want to learn more about this topic, I have a full review on Jinko solar panels here.

Jinko 440w Tiger Pro Is Extremely Affordable
We know that the price of a solar system can add up, which is why we love the affordability of the Jinko 440w. Compared to some other solar panels on the market offering similar performance, the Jinko 440w Tiger Pro comes out a lot more affordable for homeowners.
So, with all of the savings you generate from the Jinko 440w solar panel, you can pay back your system a lot quicker. It is a no-brainer, really.
What can make it even more affordable is the solar panel rebate programme. If you don’t know what this is, it basically provides Victorian households with a 50% rebate on the solar panels.
The quality of the Jinko 440w solar panels is excellent and great for homeowners looking for a quick return on investment.
Jinko 440w Tiger Pro
What I Like About It...
The Jinko 440w panel is larger than most of the other modules making it better suited for homes that are lacking in space but still want to maximise their energy output. I also love the feature of the multi busbar and the way Jinko has incorporated advanced technology into this panel.
Let’s not forget the 20.77% solar panel efficiency which is important for this panel to be able to perform and generate a significant amount of energy over the period of 25 years. Overall, this panel has to be one of my favourites and it would seem it resonates with a lot of homeowners as well.

The Jinko 440w Tiger Pro Comes In A Size of 440w Which Helps Utilise Your Roof Space
Jinko 440w Tiger Pro really takes into consideration that not every roof is the same. Like most things, one size does not fit all.
The most common size in the industry is 370w (which can be seen by Jinko 370w N Type and cheetah), and to reach 8.8kw would require around 24 panels! Whereas the Jinko 440w Tiger pro provides an 8.8kw system for only 20 solar panels
Therefore, you can save space on your roof for the same amount of energy output as a 370kw system from a Jinko 440w Tiger Pro solar panel.
It also means your solar panels can generate more energy per panel which is better. It is less reliant on string runs which can make your system less efficient if there are issues with shading on the roof.
Overall, the 440w solar panel really suits homeowners who might be lacking a bit of space but still wanting to produce a good amount of energy to see quick savings across the board.
You Can Only Get 12 Years Product Warranty And 25 Year Performance Warranty With Jinko 440w Tiger Pro Modules
Now, we know that compared to other Jinko solar panels, the Jinko 440w Tiger Pro is a bit low at only 12 years. However, we think this is for obvious reasons.
Jinko has created the Jinko 440w for the sole purpose of those on more of a budget. It helps to save money instantly as well as move towards a more sustainable future.
It is undeniable that the Jinko 440w can slash your energy bills overnight. Therefore, the affordable price of the Jinko 440w with such impressive efficiency, you can’t complain.
It is perfect for homeowners that might be looking to move in the future but want something with a quick return on investment.
So yes, it comes with a 12-year warranty and a 25-year performance warranty. Whilst not the best on the market in terms of warranty I think that it is made up for in other areas.
Jinko 440w Tiger Pro Uses Multi BusBar Technology To Improve Performance
The multi-BusBar technology is fantastic at maximising the amount of energy you get from your solar panel and cells. I’ll briefly just explain what a Multi BusBar is.
Multi BusBar’s aim is to reduce the amount of current that flows in the BusBar to help reduce resistive loss. They do this by allowing both the fingers and busbars to be smaller. This is the distance between the BusBars and the Gridlines.
The distance is significantly decreased, meaning you can get more energy from your solar panels and cells. By shortening the length of the distance, the current has to flow the less chance energy is wasted through resistance.
The benefit of Multi BusBars is that they help increase the efficiency and performance of the Jinko 440w Tiger Pro by reducing the amount of energy wasted. Hence why it can help you see a massive difference in your energy bills overnight.
