Why is my solar ipod charger not charging?
I have combined Goodatlt's charger and Sitnalta's charger and made a charger that has support for ipods. I am using 2 7.5v 250ma solar panels wired in parallel without diodes. When I plug in my ipod touch 1st gen, it says it is charging, but the battery level is decreasing. Is it dicharging? Do I need diodes on each panel? Should I wire it in series? My schematic is below. Please Help!
