Why use the MegaMat?

We performed a test using two identical Skyline Collectors. The panel on the left is equipped with MegaMat absorbers and the right is a conventional Skyline panel using copper absorbers.

The MegaMat despite having approximately 2% less surface area than the copper absorbers produced around .5°more heat.
