Circuit for low voltage, PIR, LED, solar powered outdoor light? Answered

I've hit my limit on electronics, can anyone point me to or suggest a circuit for low voltage LED outdoor light, activated by PIR, powered from a solar charged battery pack?

Cheers, Sean

So you want a motion activated light that down't require mains power. Well the motion sensor for an outdoor light doesn't need mains power. Inside is a circuit to bring the mains power down to a reasonable and most likely a DC voltage. So open one up and see what you got. Then find a suitable battery that can power the unit, solar panel and charging circuit to charge the battery and the best LED light you can get to run off the battery and your set.
