I was watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZf-sm3UXX0&feature=youtu.be&t=3m4s as I was willing to learn how to test my solar array, from 3m4s he's testing the Amps provided by the solar panel simply by using the multimeter and WITHOUT any kind of external load. If I would have a simple battery connected this way it will most likely blow up or experience really high temperatures on the battery case.
Well ... this means that the current is wasted inside the solar panel ? That amperage is converted in heat inside the solar panel ? If the power wasn't used at all then the multimeter won't show a flow of amps.
If YES, this means that I can thaw my solar panels in the winter if I provide them with power ? For example after a snowy day could I just provide power to solar panels in order to clean them up of snow and ice ?
