Solar Phone Charger Question Answered
I'm fairly new to electronics and am trying to put together a solar charger from the many instructables here.
I am using 2 35mAh solar panels wired in parallel to charge a 2600mAh LiPo battery. I understand this will take days (right?) to get charged fully, but how can I tell that the panels are wired correctly and charging the battery. I am hoping to make this as a Christmas present and would hate to give this to someone and have it not work.
I am using a cheap Lithium Charge Controller I got from ebay and am wiring the panels and battery and usb charger to that.
Thanks for the help.
