Troubshooting my Solar cell phone charger, why doesnt it work? Answered
I recently wired up a solar charger and I have having issues with it not charging my device. My setup consists of two(2) 5V 100mA solar panels wired parrallel to bump my amperage up to 200mA conected to a 5V step-up USB charching circuit. I have been able to read 5V coming out of the panels and between 200-300mA but when I plug my phone into the USB cable, i get nothing. Am I missing something? Is there a minimum amperage I need in order to charge my phone? It is an android, motorolla btw. Here is the power converter that i am using. http://www.amazon.com/DROK-Power-Converter-Module-Charge/dp/B00C93Z8JY. Please help!
