LTC3331 Solar Cell

The data sheet says that the maximum current is 50mA into AC1/AC2.


When I look at solar cells (from Digikey) it looks like the biggest solar cell that has a current <=50mA is 229mW


I guess my question is that it looks like there is a maximum IV depending with I fixed at 50mA... am I reading that right?


If you could find a solar cell that did 50mA @ 19V that which is about 1 Watt... but that solar cell doesnt seem to exist in the real world... and it looks like the biggest practical cell is around just a bit over 200mW.
