Solar energy always fascinated me and what we have eh here are a step by step of as if to construct one jack-o-lantern using rechargables batteries and one solar cell.
The ideia for this project this in the fact of that it would like to have a "lantern" in my garden but I dont want to have that to install any eletric wire in the garden. In the next steps you will be able to see the result of this ideia.
Step 1: Finding the Right Pumpkin !
Step 2: Preparing the Pumpkin
Step 3: The Solar Cell and Battery
The ideia was perfect until I to discover how much the components would cost. When I was ready to giving up I found a product that I could adapt for my project.
The product is a tiered path, a hamilton bay's product. This product wasn't nothing more that a lighting path, and to be honest i never saw one working as they should be. By the other hand, it's perfect to my project.
Step 4: Assembly
Step 5: Final Pictures and Material List
- 4 pumpkins (0.99 cent) Target
- 1 Hampton bay with 4 lights (19.00) home depot
- hot glue pistol
- eletric tape
- lot of work : )
Step 6: Conclusion
Today, my friends are asking for to have a lantern like this. Now its time to prepare some of it to celebrate hallowen and prepare for the xmas version (xmas balls) LOL.
