Does anyone know where to get a datasheet for the Panasonic BP-243318?
It is a minature PV module, containing 5 cells in series.
I am given some of these to test every so often, but Panasonic appears
to never have heard of them.  Digikey lists some "Solar Cells" with part
numbers of the form BP-24xx, but they are all quantity 0 and show up as
invalid if you try to go the catalog page.  Panasonic sales offices have
never heard of it.  Googling on "BP-243318" and "datasheet", I get some
Russian sites, and some sites describing projects that use the part, but
no datasheets for the part itself.  I have tried some online datasheet
archives, but they don't list the part.

I have not been able to find a phone number for tech support for
Panasonic OEM semiconductor or Panasonic Batteries.  I sent an e-mail,
but it was never answered.
