Lately I have had much interest in working with solar cells, because of this I initiated a project, and to be able to test it, I decided to create this lantern with a pumpkin.
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 !
The first step was to find one pumpkin. Due to lack of luck I couldn't found the ideial, but, fortunately, I found one with that I could work. This pumpkin was bought in target and cost only 0,99 cents. Next step was to cut the bottom of it to be able to work in installation of thesolar cell and the batteries.
