Reuse a solar panel from calculator? Answered
I have a solar panel from an old calculator, I'd like to use it to make a motor spin to make a junk bot. It doesn't spin the motor when I hook it directly to the motor like I would a battery. Do I need a capacitor or other electronics to make it work?
I used a multimeter and the panel shows 2 volts in bright light, the motor does spin with a 1.5v battery.
