long-term low-glowing light (like a night-light) with a PIR/ daylight sensor using a car battery Answered
Apologies in advance if this has already been asked many times, I tried looking through the archive and couldn't really find a solution to my project idea.
I want to know if it is possible to create a long-term low-glowing light (pref with a PIR/ light sensor) powered by a car battery which I could leave in the woods (gently lighting up an ornament for example) and re-charge every couple of months? or even put an off-the-shelf style trickle solar panel onto which can be trailed into a sunny spot.
I'm up for building something from parts, soldering LEDs etc but only tried in-car LED strips before straight to the battery and don't know how to source or insert a sensor to light up only when its dark or if someone approaches and preferably not having to charge the battery too often.. In an ideal world it could just sit there and only light up when somebody approaches it in the dark/twilight (do you get where I'm coming from?)
Over to you guys! Thanks in advance!
