Step 1: Parts
This is a very simple project and it requires no knowledge in electronics
What you'll need:
Super Capacitor (any Type) x2
1.2k ohm Resistor x1
LED x as many as you want
Solar Panel x1
Rocker/Toggle Switch x1
Step 2: Wiring
Wire according to the schematic you can even use a perf board
PS the - and + codes on the schematic is the contacts of the solar panel( i didn't know the code for a solar panel so i just put a -+
Step 3: Installation, Uses and How It Works
You can install it anywhere you like for instance on the top of your tent
The way this works is the solar panel charges the 2 capacitors and when you need light the you flip the switch and it uses the electricity from the capacitors to light the LEDs even if it's night time
