My own theory was that the time factor was irrelevant in terms of soaking up the sun's power. A few minutes under a yellow sun vs 33 years of it would not make any difference. The edge that Kal had however was his resolve. He'd pretty much only just learned to fly, like the other Kryptonians, so it's not fair to say he was more experienced with his powers. Perhaps he had a better command of his strength.
