    Question 6 months ago

    Can perhaps connect this to a battery pack to store power for later

    How can I make this work on an iPhone X? Is the current to low? i'm getting 5V from the charging cable on my multimeter but doesn't initiate the charge process on my phone

    Can you suggest a solar panel that is optimal for this project?

    I've read elsewhere that when a solar panel is in shade the effect is reversed and actually can draw power from the battery. is this the case here or does the IC7805 stop this?

    Since he dident really answer the question I will try to. A phone I did a similar solar charging project with dident experience any drop. If your worried about it just put a diode in so no reverse current flow can occur.
