Step 5: Wire Up The Solar
First, we're going to wire up our solar panel.
I like to connect my 1N914 diode directly to the solar panel. When soldering make sure the black bar on the 1N914 diode is point away from the solar cell. The black bar is the negative side and prevents power backflow. If we put it in wrong we're going to prevent power from flowing into our circuit!
Then attach a long wires to both the diode and negative tab on your solar cell.
Then tape it up for protection.
