    Where did you find the solar panel?


    how long you get a full charge? do you really get a charge with this panel or it's jus for fun?

    Anybody can answer me? is it viable?

    Wow this is cool!

    that's cool!

    Can you suggest a solar panel that is optimal for this project?

    I used 6v 150ma

    I've read elsewhere that when a solar panel is in shade the effect is reversed and actually can draw power from the battery. is this the case here or does the IC7805 stop this?

    Since he dident really answer the question I will try to. A phone I did a similar solar charging project with dident experience any drop. If your worried about it just put a diode in so no reverse current flow can occur.
