solar joule thief and iPod? Answered

I want to charge my iPod using a joule thief circuit and a solar panel. I don't know the voltage or current output of the panel and I also don't want to fry my iPod.

       I understand the idea your going for. But you have all the power you will ever need with the solar panel alone to charge your ipod. I say jump on ebay an buy a small charge controller, or get the circuit diagram for a charge controller. Then just charge your ipod using the solar panel alone. This would be far more simple an safe for your ipod an the battery.
