Just FYI there is a typo somewhere. It's a 15W 14V panel. Where 14V
refers to the Vmp of the panel. The part number seems correct as it
matches whats on my datasheet.

Yes they are larger than the GP panel but effectively the Auria solar
panel is a 10W panel rather than the rated value of 15W. The thermal
de-rating for polySi in the Auria panel is much larger than aSi used in
Real world peak numbers would be:
10W GP: 7-8W
15W GP: 13ish (A guess since I've not tested it)
15W AS: 10W
Actual of course varies considerably wrt sun intensity and alignment.
