What you will need:
Solar Panel ( I have a 5W monocrystalline )
Dual-Layer Capacitors (Super Caps) I am using 1 6.3V .47mF and 1 6.3V .047mF
Load ( I am using a Blue LED)
Resistor ( I am using a 1K OHM)
Male and female power connectors(This is optional, I already had a male connector on my solar panel)
This may be elementary to some , but i feel that it is a good demonstration of how we can use a "true" green power source.
Step 1: Building the circuit
**Answer** If you answered " The voltage will double but the capacitance will be lower than any one of the capacitors in the circuit. The you are correct! I know what your saying, "won't the voltage be 12.6v?" and "That will fry that LED". The solar panel is only outputting 6.5V so we have nothing to worry about . For this reason I am not concerned about balancing the capacitors. If I were to apply a charge voltage 12.6V or higher then I would add balancing.
Once you have your capacitors, or capacitor hooked up let's move on.
