    How can I make this work on an iPhone X? Is the current to low? i'm getting 5V from the charging cable on my multimeter but doesn't initiate the charge process on my phone

    Is there a way that you know of to put a battery pack on to store the charge

    I've read elsewhere that when a solar panel is in shade the effect is reversed and actually can draw power from the battery. is this the case here or does the IC7805 stop this?

    Since he dident really answer the question I will try to. A phone I did a similar solar charging project with dident experience any drop. If your worried about it just put a diode in so no reverse current flow can occur.
